8. It helps you develop a fighters reflex
In a fight, movement is power. You can’t stand around and wait for your attacker’s next strike, you have to move! Self defence/martial arts classes will help develop your reflexes and you will gain a fighter’s reflex. A fighter’s reflex is different from your normal reflexes. In normal situations you respond to something that happens. When you are being attacked it is better to know how to respond. Fighter’s reflex will allow you to move quickly and smartly in the situation. You will know where to step and where to throw your punch. You will be prepared.
