Many of the techniques in Karate-Do have a self defence application. During the course of your Karate-Do training you will be taught how to avoid situations and react under pressure.
Rising Sun School of Karate will hold specialised self-defence classes with special guest instructors which will teach practical self defence techniques and how to handle certain situations. These classes will be advertised on this website and will only open to limited numbers. So watch this space and book early.
If you would be interested in taking part in a self-defence seminar please email email@example.com or call 0867222779
Is Karate-Do an Effective Self-Defence?
Karate is the ultimate in unarmed self-defence. It is designed to disable with one move; it has techniques against all forms of attack and has been developed through centuries of harsh experience. Most importantly, it trains the mental and emotional skills of combat, as well as the physical. Strength and size are not important in Karate - it can be performed well with whatever strength you have, by relying on technique, speed and co-ordination. Karate teaches you how to avoid possible confrontations - it is far better to de-fuse or to avoid a dangerous situation than to confront it. .
Some Self-Defence Tips
The most effective self-defence technique is learning how to avoid trouble and danger. These are just helpful tips to watch out for but are not designed as a complete replacement to Karate-Do training which over years of training will teach you to be aware of your surroundings and to be able to defend yourself.
