4. It helps improve your physical conditioning
The whole point of Self Defence Classes at Stanley Primary School in Teddington is to prepare you for any situation that may bring harm to you. Physical conditioning is extremely important when it comes to self defence. Training and practicing prepares you for the adrenaline dump when a situation arises that may require you to fight. When someone comes after you, you will experience what is called an adrenaline dump. It’s your body’s way of responding to the fight or flight situation. It only last a few seconds, so you need to be physically conditioned to appropriately deal with a dangerous situation. If you aren’t, your body will not work as well as you need it to after the adrenaline dump . Physical conditioning will work on your reflexes and your awareness of an attack. When you are fighting it is important to be focused both mentally and physically. If you are prepared, you will be more successful in a dangerous situation and the dump won’t take all your energy from you.
