General Self Defense Training

E.P.U classes can help to build self-confidence, whether the student is an adult, a child, or a teenager. E.P.U classes take the students through skill levels that progressively get harder, but as the students progress, they gain confidence in their capabilities and their ability to rise to the challenges ahead.

E.P.U classes help students to improve awareness of their surroundings and themselves. Depending on the specific type of course, the class may spend a significant amount of time teaching students how to avoid areas and situations that are more dangerous. Additionally, students in a traditional self-defense class learn to be more aware of themselves so they can be prepared to handle any dangerous situations that they might suddenly find themselves in.

E.P.U encourage’s students to come in and complete a session at least once or twice a week. This is a great way to get exercise. As students advance, the challenges become more physically demanding, which prompts the need for additional conditioning exercises and leads to better overall physical health. Exercise can also improve your mood, helping people who are struggling with depression and other issues. The supportive environment of a self-defense class is a great option for people who need encouragement as they begin an exercise program. If someone has been the victim of a crime, then taking a self-defense class can be part of the healing process. It allows the person to feel that they are more in control of their life and can make a big difference in how they recover from the psychological impact of the trauma.

E.P.U classes teach people how to defend themselves from an attacker. They also talk about when and where to use the skills that students are learning. It can be comforting to know that you can defend yourself from an attacker and protect your children when needed. Many people advise against carrying a weapon, since many attackers can overpower you and use that weapon against you. When you take a self-defense class, you are learning to use your body as a weapon that cannot be taken away from you. It makes you able to respond effectively in difficult and scary situations.
