Are you a mother worried about being attacked when you are out with your children? I know that you are an amazing mother even though we haven't met because you are looking for the answer by reading this article. Studies have shown that mothers are more often more concerned for their family’s safety then for their own. Are you worried that you may not make the right decisions in an adrenaline response situation? We know that hoping for the best is never the best way to keep our families safe!
It’s all about choosing the right lessons to learn to protect ourselves, which should be simple and effective. We also want to learn how to teach our families the right way so once we understand it we can pass the skills along.
Most of the time we only experience an adrenaline response in an emergency or extreme sports situation. What people don’t realize that there are drawbacks as well as benefits to this natural process. Now the secret that we’ve found is that by having some fun and practicing the adrenaline response in an intense, yet short training session, we can get the speed and power results without the decreased cognitive function of fear. Young children can quickly learn the most basic techniques, and adults can easily add power, speed, and situational awareness to instantly gain the upper hand in almost any situation.
Step 1: Identifying threats– We teach moms how to recognize the types of threats and how the body responds to crisis. A cool mind is the first step to self defense. Learn how to instantly communicate with every part of your body for total control in emergencies.
Step 2: Practicing Planned Responses-No one can prepare for everything, but if you think about that old diaper bag or packed minivan, you know you were ready for emergencies. Self defense is the same way, so we are sure to pack your tool kit with the essentials, and some specialty moves just in case!
Step 3: Implementing simple defensive habits– The things we find enjoyable are the things we will remember the best and repeat the most. Bruce Lee said “I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.
I want to tell you about Tatiana, a mother who recently met me through our MEGA Mom training program. She has 2 children and is on maternity leave. Tatiana told me that she was at the park with her 7 year old son and her newborn. She was caught off guard while feeding the baby and a man grabbed her purse and ran. Her son picked up a rock and watched the man run to his car. Before he could drive away, her son threw it at the man’s car and cracked a window. He made sure to tell his mother about it as she called 911. It was enough for the police to catch the man and return her purse within the hour! The boy said as soon as he realized his mom and baby brother were safe he wanted to stop the man, but he had to be smarter, not stronger. It was a lesson from the training and Tatiana was amazed at how well her son had applied the lesson. “I hadn’t realized how important it was to expose my children to same lessons I was learning. I didn’t think my son would be the one to save me, but it is true that kicks and punches are not the only part of self defense.”
I know that if our training worked for Tatiana and her son, we know it can work for you and your family as well. You care about keeping yourself and your family safe and getting them there as fast as possible. The first step is with you, the leader.
