Understanding the importance of violence prevention and how to properly defend yourself is crucial for your overall safety.
That is why the girls of BOLD, BOLD Jr and Young Women in Motion had the opportunity to learn self-defense techniques in girls group. With the collaboration of two certified self-defense instructors from MMA World Academy Gym, the girls were given the opportunity to learn everything they need to know to help them defend themselves properly if ever in a threating situation where they fear their safety and wellbeing.
This was a new experience for many of the girls and they learned a lot from it!
One of the most important take home message that the girls learned was that fighting is not the best option, instead, the goal is to get out of the fearful and threating situation first!
Below are some pictures of this experience highlighting some skills the girls learned:
A special thanks to MMA World Academy for sharing their self defense expertise with our girls!
