With an increase in the number of crimes against children like kidnapping, molestation, sexual assault, the need to include self- defence in the school curriculum has become a necessity rather than just an option. I believe that self defence should be a core subject in our schools just like English,maths etc.
Why is self-defence an important requirement in today’s time?
Learning self-defence at an early age helps a child to ensure his personal safety and defence. Children are more prone to crimes than adults as they are often considered easy targets and defenceless. Teaching your child self- defence means allowing him to learn how to tackle an impending danger without falling in trap. Learning self- defence allows a child to be more aware of his/her environment, as they are not only trained physically but also mentally. They are taught to deal with the unexpected, hence they are ready for anything. Not only this, but self-defence also helps a student boost his self esteem allowing him to explore his full potential. A child with such abilities can not only rescue himself but also help others in times of distress. Self- defence also helps in empowering of a girl child. A physically and mentally strong girl can protect herself from the crimes that are associated to women.
Self defence raises self-assurance and confidence in children and help them under uncanny situations and also serves as a pathway to a healthy and fit lifestyle. It has become of the basic necessity these days, considering the increasing rates of crimes against children, especially girls. Schools should not merely focus on the educational excellence of children but should also prepare them for the worst. Self- defence is today’s need and its a must in our school-curriculum.Afshan IqbalParticipant@afshanFebruary 12, 2022 at 2:53 pm #34118
Looking at the number of crimes happening every day especially against girls is alarming enough to include Self-defense training in schools across the country. If self-defense training is included in the school curriculum it will help children to be shielded from abuse and violence. Crimes like child trafficking and child-abusing are rapidly increasing, rape, acid attacks and molestation with girls are increasing every day too, so it will be a big step to curb these crimes. Children catch things quickly so if self-defense is included in the school curriculum from an early age, then there is a possibility that the cases related to children will decrease. There are more perks such as a child who has self-defense training does not need anyone to protect him/her. Along with that, he/she can help others in times of agony. A girl child who can protect herself from dangerous situations can also protect other girls. Empowering girl children with these self-defense techniques along with education will raise the possibility of a safer world for girls. Self-defense classes will boost the confidence of the children. This will help children to protect themselves from unseen dangers. With focusing on education, institutions should also focus on self-defense. It will build a strong personality in children and it will always be a part of their lives.Shreya ShuklaParticipant@shreyaFebruary 25, 2022 at 12:02 am #34292
Self-Defence is said to be when we fight for ourselves against any harmful person. Self Defence should be taught to girls as we know that crimes against women are increasing day by day. No matter what is the age of the woman just because she is a female she has to be harmed by males who have the sick mentality. Every next day we get to read about heinous crimes with a school going girl, an old woman and even with a newborn, Disgusting but true. In this scenario, it has become a necessity to add self-defence training as a crucial part of the curriculum. It will also help them to be safe at a time when no one is there to help them. A woman can fight for herself and this gives her confidence to pursue her dreams without any kind of fear of sexual harassment. A girl needs to understand that her safety is in her hand because no one can be trusted with her integrity.
