At Mamute Martial Arts Academy, we are proud to offer programs and guidance to our female students, whether novice or intermediate.
Benefits of martial arts training in preventing assault.
According to global statistics, one in three women have experienced some type of violence, be it physical or sexual – this may not include verbal harassment and assault which can be threatening in its own right. These numbers are staggering, and we believe that martial arts training can be of great value as a result. We aim to provide as many defensive resources as possible if such a situation would ever occur. There are studies available which indicate women’s self defense programs and martial arts training decreases chances of experiencing assault.
Confidence in your abilities.
Collectively, we want to live in a society where violence against women in any form is simply not tolerated. That being said, we still have a long way to go. In the majority of cases, abusive attacks towards women are made by men who are may be larger in stature and who believe they have an advantage in strength. With experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, women can often negate any sort of size advantage, and this confidence will help to defend any sort of attack. Being confident in the ability to resist and fight back is a huge deterrent and may prevent any sort of potential altercation in the first place. With the proper instructors and regular training, building both physical and mental confidence can be achieved.
Not everybody will be the victim of an attack.
Not all women will experience an attack in their lifetime, and we wish to keep it that way. In many cases, a potential assault may not take a violent turn. However, having confidence to prevent any sort of threatening situation is extremely healthy for the mind, and has obvious physical benefits otherwise. We invite anybody interested to visit us, check out a free trial and see what Mamute Martial Arts can offer.
Muay Thai - The Hype Explained
The expansion of elbow strikes, knees and clinch techniques give Muay Thai practitioners substantially more tools in self-defense and combat ability, as opposed to a regular boxer or even a kickboxer. Rather than simply relying on punching power, a martial artist who is trained in Muay Thai can expand their abilities substantially. Because of the flexibility of the art itself, Muay Thai is the accepted striking style for most mixed martial artists athletes competing today.
Generally speaking a Muay Thai contender in the ring (or cage) against a kickboxer with similar records and experience will be the superior athlete. This is the case for a number of reasons, mainly a larger set of tools which can be applied.
Muay Thai is a game that was created in Thailand as a traditional martial arts and in the long run has transformed into a mainstream sport similar to professional boxing. Due to the competitive component, Muay Thai has developed extensively throughout the years and continues to evolve. In the past two decades, Muay Thai gyms have seen a massive increase outside of Thailand itself.
The Importance of Choosing a Quality Training Facility
Choosing the appropriate gym is one of the most significant choices you will need to take when beginning your journey. If you choose the wrong facility, you can wind up learning a watered down rendition of kickboxing with some components of Muay Thai sprinkled in.
