Every BODY Does Self-Defense Differently


Everybody does self-defense differently.


It’s also true that every body does self-defense differently.


You probably feel the urge to correct me and get rid of the space between “every” and “body.”


That’s fine. My grammar check isn’t happy with me either.


But I assure you. It’s not a mistake.


Our bodies are unique, with different histories, abilities, and strengths.


Our bodies are unique, with different histories, abilities, and strengths.

So every body does self-defense differently. (If you’re wondering where you’ve heard something similar, you might be thinking of this.


I know that my body hurts when I move my arm too high. Which means I have to think about and figure out what techniques work best for my body.


I know a student who has a fragile and relatively weak left arm due to an old humerus fracture. But that’s never held her back. Besides instinctively finding ways to adapt, her instructors have helped her figure out how to make up for it by using the strongest parts of her body, like her right leg.


The opportunity to get to learn about our bodies - one of the greatest we’re ever given - is just one more beautiful thing about Empowerment Self Defense.


What physical self-defense techniques work best for your body?
