    Self-defense is a very important skill that every girl should learn. There should be compulsory training for girls for self-defense. It not only helps save girls from physical attacks but also helps to benefit them in everyday life. When girls are walking alone and it’s late if someone tries to attack them she defend herself at least. Nowadays we all know there is a lot of wrong things that happen to girls but they have suffered because they don’t know how to defend themselves. Girls can take training of kickboxing, karate, taekwondo.
    The whole aim of a self-defense class is to prepare you for any dangerous situation that may bring harm to you or your loved ones. Physical conditioning is therefore one of the biggest factors when it comes to defending yourself. Lessons and training prepare you for that inevitable adrenalin rush that occurs when a fight or flight situation arises. When you experience an adrenaline rush, it only lasts a few seconds – what this means is that you need to be physically conditioned to appropriately deal with your situation. If you are not in good physical form, your body will not work as efficiently as you need it to. Physical conditioning will help work on your reflexes and overall strength. Last but not least, being trained in the art of self-defense is the best way to keep your mind at ease. Instead of worrying every single time you go to a bar or a club, you will be able to enjoy your time with your friends and loved ones as you know that you are ready to handle any sour situation that is thrown in your direction. The only way to ensure you are ready to tackle any danger that comes your way is to keep practicing, and then practice some more. Going to class and showing up on time and on a regular basis helps you develop your discipline. Like with any other sport, practice makes perfect.

    In a society,
    where girls are being harmed and are not Secured , where rape cases are being common , where girl’s are not even safe from there own family members should learn “ SELF DEFENCE “

    Self defence !
    What this term means?
    Self Defence , is an act in which a person use to protect itself from external force .Every girl need to learn self defence; either an independent girl or a normal village girl.
    In village Girls are not allowed to go outside at night , even after evening due to safety issues . People think they are not capable of protecting her self . In city area girls who are independent and live their life independently , have to face many things like :- Coming late from office, unusual comment at stations , and due to their achievement many people get jealous from them .If each and every girl know self defence techniques they don’t need anyone to protect them . They can go anywhere at any time. Self defence always helps a girl to face the unwanted waste of society.
    Recently in IG TV , I just saw a video of small girl where her father teach her Self Deface because his daughter is become the victim of eve teasing and get afraid to go . To let her daughter again fly in the open sky he took this step and he do not care about what people say . After few months when the girl coming back home those boy come and start teasing other girls , that go their and beat those guys and teach them a lesson and others too , that now girls can take her stand and can fight for themselves .
    Self defense Is not only to save a girl from eve teasing or rape when ever they face any critical situation like being kidnapped or something else she can fight for her self and can her itself and others too.
    Self Defence , should be thought in school since from 1st class . Their should be different seminar for girls where the expert can give them some valuable knowledge and teach them some basic techniques .

    In a society where women is unsafe at every step she takes, wherever she goes, there’s nothing she can rely upon when it comes to her safety, so by far women have always been strong and got through alot, so here when it comes to safety, she could be utterly capable of saving herself from the violence, this can be done only when she is taught how to protect herself, so, yes self defence should be made compulsory for all women/girls around the world, to be able to save herself would be the one confidence that a woman and her family would have when she’ll step out of the house.
    In the era of increasing of rape cases and harassment cases daily, women being able to protect themselves through self-defence will not only help her in saving herself from a lot of miseries but also will create a fear in the minds of the people to treat women nicely or else she knows the ways to break their bones when it comes to safety. Self-defence is one thing that can help women live a fearfree life from the monsters prevailing outside or inside their houses.

    If we are talking about the self defense, it can be declared as the most needed to apply for whatever we’re trying to make women empowerment, gender equality, making their way in every job and so on.
    In a January 2018 survey of 1,000 women nationwide, 81 percent reported experiencing some form of sexual harassment, assault, or both in their lifetime.
    Verbal harassment was the most common form, but 51 percent of women said they were touched or groped in an unwelcome way, while 27 percent of women survived sexual assault.
    These are some horrible experience we often met. But without even these, because, there’s always a stigma running through our minds that we, women are weak, it creates self disappointment.
    Whenever we try to walk on some lone path, we have to be worried about some rapist behind the bushes. It’s not only a crime anymore, it has become a crisis, a fear which don’t let women choose their path, whether it is a lone way or a different field of life.
    Over 60% cases don’t even registered. Why? Because , we accept ourselves as weak. We are worried about family and further time when we’ll walk alone.
    By certifying women self defense compulsory , we don’t only put up a wall against crime, we’re keeping our girls mentally strong that there’s no need to be afraid and be silent.
    Ok, just let go of outside,a study has proven that over 93% of rapists are from our known circle. To the wisest of all, who claims that women should not go outside, can you answer these questions? What was fault of that little girl who adores you as her uncle?

    It’ has been so necessary that if you ask my opinion, I’ll want to make it compulsory not only in school or college, but we should keep it in practice just like teaching manners. Until we, women make ourselves strong, nobody is gonna appreciate us and that’s the way our society is.
    From now on, we should teach our child to slap on his face without worrying by making them believe in themselves. Make yourself strong, choose any choice you want to, influence others and that’s how our society will grow.

    Crime is a critical area of our life. It has become the part and parcel of our society that the crime rate has increased tremendously over the past decade. The problem of rape is being discussed and debated in public with the new sources of media, especially social media. Comprehensive sex education with the lessons of consent is the key to stop rape incidents rather than self-defense. Self-defense skills for girls can be made compulsory within a certain period, considering the current scenario, but the root cause of this problem has to be solved which involves standing up against the people involved in this chain and not blaming girls. The most important thing is to impart self-defense training to girls and women so that they can protect themselves from the current scenario of rising crimes against them. The rape and murders of innocent girls have been taking place in broad daylight. Even though police arrests the culprits, it’s a very long procedure to punish a person. While protecting oneself is important, self-defense training is needed to make us safe from crime on the streets.

    In developed countries, self-defense is already taught in girls’ schools. Nowadays, parents are opting for schools that offer self-defense training to their daughters.
    But now this training must be compulsorily made available in schools, as most crimes against women take place in campuses and public places like streets and public transport. Every girl should surely have the right to protect themselves; as is the case in some regions of India.

    While there are many laws urging girls to not go out alone at night or travel to certain places. They don’t have the physical knowledge or skills to protect themselves from dangerous situations. Schools must be made to compulsorily learn self-defense for girls of age groups 12 -16 years. Training shall be imparted by a certified person. Considering this, self-defense for girls should be made compulsory at schools. First and foremost, it would help them to gain confidence and to create a sense of security in their minds. Then it will also teach them how not to feel guilty or helpless if they are sexually assaulted.

    Whenever it comes to a girl’s safety, it is the sole responsibility of a girl to protect herself, because people around you will help out but not all the time’s someone would be there for you and so it is very compulsory or can say it’s a NEED OF AN HOUR for every girl to learn self-defense and to learn techniques which would help them.
    Women have always been subjected to domination, suppression, and exploitation however, it is the sheer determination and courage of our Indian women who have been struggling and fighting against the dictatorship and the exploitations. The crimes and violence against women are increasing, there’s no single day safe for women, there’s every day a case of rape or cases of violence, domestic abuse or eve-teasing, women trafficking, etc.
    And so, by looking at the present scenario, it is very much needed that each girl should be made to opt for self-defense courses, in fact, schools and colleges should also make compulsory those courses. When young girls are being harassed by anyone, or maybe while traveling from school to home and vice versa, they have no one to help them and it’s shameful and upsetting that people are least bothered, So these are the reason for the compulsion of self-defense.
    Self-defence education must be included in the curriculum for the girls in the education system until unless it becomes mandatory no one will consider it seriously and would be ignorant of its benefits. Females are not weak gender, they can learn new things for themselves whether it’s about physical training or any course and each girl should know self-defense, as the present scenario and situations demand them to become stronger and take responsibility for their own.

    Yes! definitely. In India women are not safe at all. India is the fourth unsafe country for women. Delhi, India’s capital is the most unsafe city. That’s why they need learning of self defense. Self defense is a very important training in the kind of world we are living today.

    In india we most commonly listen the cases of rape, murder, molestation, kidnapping, acid attacks etc. Women usually considered as the weaker gender by the criminals and that’s why they target women. Its time that we make each and every women realise that she is strong enough to fight for her battle. Its just that they need a right platform to awaken and highlight their inner power and utilize it whenever it is required. Self Defense should be the compulsory subject in all schools and colleges of urban and rural areas. It should be dtarted from 1st class till college levels. Those who cannot afford these trainings like in rural areas they should be given by the government. The government should start it as soon as possible. Young girls should be given training of self defense techniques including the training of judo, karate or Marshall arts. It will help them in boosting their confidence. If a woman is trained then she can even walk late at night without having any fear in her mind. Instead of saving her from being victimized, let her learnt how to fight.

    So let’s each and everyone of us help in making our women the Warriors and save themselves from being a victim. It’s High Time now. We need to give them a teaching of how to fight back and how to stand up for themselves. How to differentiate between good or bad touch. Even if a single member of the family had learnt this she can pass it on to others. It will be good step in making our nation safer.

    IMPORTANCE OF SELF-DEFENCE:
    The world we live in today has a lot of violence and anger. In India, cases of rape and molestation are increasing each day so women should learn how to defend themselves.
    As per Wikipedia, “self-defence is a countermeasure that involves defending the health and well-being of oneself from harm.” Self-defence teaches discipline and builds confidence in people. It helps improve focus and concentration. The ability to be your superhero can make you stand out. It also has health benefits, it is a fun exercise so it can help people burn more calories. Learning self-defence adds the skill of the fighters reflex.
    Girls from a very young age should learn the skills of self-defence. Thus, instead of becoming vulnerable and helpless, women can learn the tactics to defend themselves. Parents should also teach their sons how to behave with women which in turn will help develop a better society for all human beings.
