Women Self-Defense: Peace of Mind and Protection of Body

Knowing how to defend yourself is important. Regardless of where you live, whether it be in Northern Michigan, the southern states, or along the west coast, knowing how to use your body to ward off an attacker is always great knowledge to have. If you're a woman, however, knowing how to protect yourself is even more important. Many victims of crimes involving assault are women; attackers will see a female as a prime target. At Seung-Ni Martial Arts the instructors hold self defense seminars specifically for women so that they have the confidence to protect themselves.

A couple times each year, Seung-ni hosts a class focusing solely on teaching moms, daughters, and sisters how to fight off attackers. This ranges from standing in a proper defensive stance, striking with the most effective limbs, to working on important techniques should an attacker grab and/or throw you to the ground. The class will even cover how to handle a situation in which a weapon is involved.

Just as important as the techniques learned during the seminar is the confidence gained. Nobody wants to live in a state of paranoia and always looking over their shoulder. Being vigilant is good but a walk to the car from the storefront should not be one of terror. By teaching women how to defend themselves the instructors at Seung-Ni hope to remove any fear that anyone might be facing about getting attacked. This confidence along with learned techniques is more than many would-be attackers expect from a victim, because that person refuses to be a victim.

If you or someone you know in the Northern Michigan area is interested in learning self defense and/or practicing martial arts feel free to contact Seung-ni Martial Arts of Traverse City at (231) 932-4300 or visit us at
