Womens’ self defense training on Training Talk

Posted by:

Let’s be honest: There is a ton of really awful self defense training aimed at women. I’m not sure why that is, but I constantly see bad techniques, bad advice, and bad teaching methods pushed at women — and the offenders are both men and other women.

It doesn’t need to be that way, and on last night’s episode of Training Talk I discuss the current state of women’s self defense education with Alessandro Padovani of Safer Faster Defense. Alessandro is one of the most knowledgeable and introspective teachers working today, and his thoughts on what women need (and aren’t always getting) are important.

Alessandro has some specific recommendations for both prospective students and their teachers. This is definitely an episode you’ll want to watch and share!
