Life-Saving Lessons

NSVRC found that 81% of women in the United States have experienced sexual harassment or sexual assault at some point in their life. While these statistics are extremely upsetting, they also reveal just how important it is to provide women with self-defense training and education on how to avoid dangerous situations.

Ticconi’s ATA Martial Arts will provide students with methods of self-defense that can be applied to a variety of real-life situations. We will begin by teaching prevention practices. This includes discussion on how to increase awareness of your surroundings, how to avoid becoming a target, and how to increase security in your home and through your everyday habits. We will then teach students various self-defense techniques and actions which can be used in the case that they are confronted by an attacker. We will practice hands-on drills that allow each student to apply the skills they have learned, as well as give students the opportunity to select the best method of defense in various circumstances. The lessons we teach at Ticconi’s ATA Martial Arts could save your life.
