Understanding Your Physical Capabilities and Limitations: Martial Arts, Self Defense, and Violence De-escalation and Reduction

In the first month of 2023, there was 420 incidents related to assault in Mississauga and Brampton. While no one should live in a constant fear when going outside on their day-to-day basis, the reality of our cities’ rise in criminal activity has made it imperative that its residents be aware, take preventative measures, and prepare themselves with defensive knowledge to both keep safe and feel safe.


Kombat Arts and Self-Defense      

More than just a great workout, Martial Arts provides the foundations for learning about your body – its capabilities and limitations, and how to effectively use it for both peace as well as self-defense.

Kombat Arts Training Academy, located in Mississauga, provides a wide variety of classes, workshops/seminars, and training camps that can help you learn these foundational techniques, build your confidence, and instill both an appreciation and apprehension for the strengths and vulnerabilities of the human mind and body within unpredictable situations that, if educated upon, can lead to a reduction in violent tendencies and irrational behaviours.


Movement and the Many Martial Arts

From working with your fists, to the art of the eight limbs, grappling and technique, to using weaponry, Kombat Arts Training Academy provides a variety of ways to learn how to use your body effectively to defend yourself.

Kombat Arts programming includes boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Jeet Kune Do, Kali, French Kickboxing, and Krav Maga, all arts with varying techniques, skills, and cultural practices involved. Yet, the similarity between these vastly different arts is that they all teach a deep awareness and understanding of your body and movement that can support you in both preventing violent incidents, as well as coming safely out of the midst of them.

From learning to be aware of your surroundings, to how to visually comprehend and interpret the body movements of your opponent, controlling your energy and adrenaline, to effective striking, grappling, and evasion techniques, Martial Arts provides a strong educational base for defending yourself in many dangerous situations. Additionally, these martial arts provide a strong physical base for defending yourself – with consistent training at Kombat Arts, you will find your body become stronger and more efficient, your cardio better, and your physical techniques more precise over time.


Self-Defense Tips and Tactics

In addition to the ongoing Martial Arts programs, Kombat Arts Training Academy regularly provides additional workshops and seminars that focus on teaching those who attend effective skills that can be used right away, with less continuous training needed. In the past, these workshops have included self-defense specific seminars, such as Defense Against Edged Weapons and Women’s Self Defense workshops, as well as workshops for improving your body’s capabilities, such as the free Hip Mobility Seminar taking place Friday, July 21, 2023.

Our social media also provides regular updates, tips, and tactics for not only our Martial Arts programs, but for self-defense too.

The Peel Regional Police also provides great tips for Protecting Yourself and Your Property.


Martial Arts as De-escalation, Appreciation, and Violence Reduction

Aside from all the tips and techniques for learning how to defend yourself against violence, Martial Arts has the ability to tackle the problem at its root. Reducing violence within our population is the most effective way for everyone to stay safe and avoid dangerous situations. Implementing Martial Arts in the regular lives and routines of our children has the potential to build towards this less-violent society, as some research has found that Martial Arts reduces aggressive behaviours in youth. Martial Arts teaches youth how to control their behavior, with an emphasis on respect, which can reduce overall aggression outside of the gym. Kombat Arts Training Academy provide multiple kids programs, including a Kids Summer Camp from July 24 to July 28, and July 31 to August 4, 2023.

Further, for youth and adults alike, Martial Arts provides a humbling window into your own, and others,’ potential physical capabilities and limitations, illustrating the element of unpredictability and danger an uncontrolled situation of violence may bring. As such, the appreciation of physical ability and skill that Martial Arts provides its artists can reduce their tendency to jump into violent situations, and lead to de-escalation instead.


Martial Arts at Kombat Arts Training Academy, then, can teach both peace and structured force through educating and training both mind and body, which can reduce the dangers of criminal violence in daily life. As one of the best Martial Arts training centres in Mississauga, Kombat Arts is the ideal place for you to begin your Martial Arts journey – a journey into feeling confident and safe and understanding and achieving your physical potential.
