While there is a lot of beauty to be found in the world, and a lot of incredible people, we have to face the facts that there are still criminals out there looking to take advantage of, steal from, or injure those that they deem to be ‘targets’. It is important for you to know how to protect yourself, as well as your loved ones. This is especially true for women, who are often the victim of attacks. Here at Full Circle Martial Arts Academy, we offer a variety of self-defense classes in Capitol Heights and are incredibly proud to provide classes specifically for the women in our community. In this blog post, we will provide a variety of the benefits that you will see when you sign up for one of our classes and why it’s a no-brainer to enroll yourself as well your loved ones in class today.

It is so important to keep good care of our bodies. This, of course, includes eating a healthy and nutritional diet. But that simply isn’t enough. You need to ensure that you are keeping your body active through consistent exercise. In our 90-minute self-defense seminar for women, we will show you a variety of techniques and exercises that will not only help you to protect yourself, but when practiced regularly, will also help you keep your body in great shape. While not everything is easy, the more you practice, the more you’ll build the necessary muscles and keep yourself prepared for a dangerous situation.


As is often said, confidence is key. You could be in great shape and know techniques in self-protection, but if you are not fully confident in your abilities, you will either make a mistake or become intimidated. A large part of our martial arts classes is helping you prepare not only your body but also your mind. Through our teachings, you can have the self-assurance to know that you can control the situation and not let that initial fear bog you down.

Situational Awareness

One very important aspect to keeping yourself protected is to understand your surroundings and know when there may be a threat lurking in the area. At Full Circle Martial Arts Academy, we will teach you how to spot certain risks that you may not have observed before. We’ll be able to help you know what a predator is looking for in their victims and how to avoid fitting that profile, situational awareness drills, and so much more.


Along with confidence, you also must ensure that you have strong self-discipline. The first step to this is enrolling into our self-defense program for women, and then showing up! That’s a great first start. But after you have undergone our seminar, you must stick with it! Keep yourself active, and practice the tips and techniques that we provide you. If that is not enough, then consider applying to one our multiple other martial arts classes available for adults to learn even more skills that will keep yourself safe.

Sense of Community

As you well know, there is a pretty special sense of community in Capitol Heights, and it is no different when you join a part of our seminar. As soon as you walk into our facility, you will immediately recognize that you are surrounded by a group of women that have the same concerns and goals as you do. Together, you will be learning how to keep yourselves safe. You’re also sure to be making new friends and helping spread this wonderful community that we call home.

Safety and Protection

While you are certain to have fun during our self-defense class, we doubt that that is the reason you signed up for it. Whether you have been or have been felt threatened in the past, or would just like to have the confidence and skills if a situation should ever arise, then you can rely on our highly-trained staff to provide you with the skills that you are looking for. This is a great event to have with family, friends, or coworkers, and if you would rather have the seminar held at your own location, then we will be sure to come to you.

We are proud to offer our women’s self-defense classes, but we would like for everyone to be able to protect themselves in the worst situation. That is why we have courses for those of all ages and experience levels. Whether you would like to enroll your child in our Tiny Ninjas program or have been looking to learn adult Kung Fu or Tai Chi, then we offer those martial arts courses as well. If you have any questions about our self-defense classes in Capitol Heights, then please don’t hesitate to reach out to us today.
