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.
