Knowledge of self-defense is important for everybody.  Men, women and children can all benefit from learning how to defend themselves; however, this article is based upon the importance of women learning self-defense.

In a world where women are unrightfully labeled as helpless and weak; we often become the target for acts of violence.  Threatening situations such as: rapes, assaults, muggings etc. result with little to no warning.  We need to find the most REALISTIC self-defense program as possible in order to fully be prepared for these situations.

One of the best ways to learn how to defend yourself is to take martial arts, specifically Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).  MMA isn’t just for people who aspire to become a competitive MMA fighter like you see on UFC. It can be practiced for sport, fun and knowledge of a great, realistic, self-defense system.  A lot of gyms gear their MMA program for fighters.  At Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA, their unique approach is for anybody looking to learn in a safe, and fun environment.

I know you are probably wondering if Mixed Martial Arts has a place in women’s self-defense training?  The answer, in my opinion, is YES.  Many women have turned to Mixed Martial Arts for self-defense training, while learning the arts of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Boxing, Judo, Karate, and Wrestling to make it a well-rounded, but more importantly, realistic self-defense martial art.

Taking Mixed Martial Arts can be beneficial in many aspects of your life.  It is a great way to stay fit, it will boost your confidence, it will give you the knowledge of how to defend yourself in virtually any situation-all the while having fun and learning something new.
