With an increase in the number of crimes against women like molestation, sexual harassment, kidnapping, rape it becomes a necessity that they are provided with self -defece training to protect themselves and others.
Why is self-defence an important requirement in today’s time?
Learning self-defence at an early age helps a girl ensure her personal safety and defence. Women are more prone to crimes than men as they are often considered easy targets and defenceless. Teaching your girls self- defence means allowing then to learn how to tackle an impending danger without falling in trap. Learning self- defence allows women to be more aware of their environment, 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 a helps a woman to boost his self esteem allowing her to explore her full potential. A girl with such abilities can not only rescue herself but also help others at times of distress. Self- defence also helps in empowering of a girl child.

Self defence not only raises self-assurance and confidence in women but also help them under uncanny situations. It has become of the basic necessities these days, considering the increasing rates of crimes against women. Even schools should not merely focus on educational excellence of a child but should also prepare them for the worst. Self- defence is today’s need and it a must in our school-curriculum too.
