SELF DEFENSE CLASSES SAN DIEGO ARE PERFECT FOR WOMEN
There is a lots misinformation out there for ladies’ self-defense…First and foremost, why do most systems insist on teaching women various methods than men? Kosho-Ryu and Kajukenbo believe that if it isn’t something that we would teach males it isn’t really worth knowing.
I feel those other systems feel females are weaker and smaller than males” which is the comeback. My thought is that a female grizzly or tiger may undoubtedly smaller than the male counterpart, however, I do not want to mess with them especially when they have their cubs with them!! Here is one setting where size truly doesn’t matter … attitude and fearing the crime more than you fear injury is exactly what matters. A cat weighs 6 or 7 pounds. However, when I was in college playing football, I would see my teammates who could benchpress 400lbs release one in a hurry when the cat with upset and began to claw!
In Kosho-Ryu and Kajukenbo we teach the exact same strategies, the exact same combative, the exact same philosophy and the exact same techniques to ladies and guys. Can a 100-pound female punch with equal effectiveness as a 200-pound male? She can if he is punching with just his arm and she is turning her whole 100 pounds into the punch.
If they both have the technique down and punch with all their weight using appropriate leverage the man will hit harder but the woman is still hitting hard enough to do damage!
Why Kosho-Ryu? Kosho-Ryu does not blow smoke about its practitioners not being injured or having “never fail” methods. The mindset in every one of our adult class drills is to prepare you for the physical and mental stress one would face on the street.
This is all done in a supportive and safe environment where you can make corrections so if the situation arises, you will have the mindset and have developed the muscle memory to react and protect yourself or your family from the bad guy.
Protecting yourself truly comes down to attitude! SGT Sanford Strong in his book Strong on Defense (a must read for women’s self-defense) flatly states “Surviving violence is all about mental toughness.” He goes on to talk about mind setting and accepting that you will be injured, determining what you fear the greatest, hurt or being controlled by the criminal. Focus on the escape, not on what he is saying or doing.”

[Most moms and dads can understand that roughhousing allows children develop physically] by providing a means of vigorous exercise, however, if the truth be told, that is the least substantive effect that it has on them.
