Self-defense is already a part of school education in the USA, Canada, Israel, and Albania, similar to media literacy or financial literacy. The statistics are very grim: every 3rd woman, every 5th child, every 6th boy, and every 10th man will encounter physical violence in their lifetime. Self-defense education contributes to reducing bullying and helps create a healthy and safe work environment in companies. Moreover, if we defend ourselves against an aggressor, we have a chance of success in over 80% of cases.
