Brighton Self Defence with articles written by Sussex Police and Mirror, Metro and Telegraph news

Do you live in Brighton and want to learn some self­ defence? If so you need to understand a few things first and in this article we will explain why self­ defence training is not just about learning to protect yourself, it is about so much more.

If you look at the stats below that showcase crime levels in one area of Brighton, you can see that violent crime occurs more than other crimes except anti­social behaviour. That, however, doesn’t mean that you should be afraid to walk the streets. In fact, the real risk of you becoming a victim or violent crime is quite low.

Self Defence training in Brighton should not be seen as something you need to have, instead it is a skill set that you should want to pursue.

But why? After all if crime levels aren’t that bad why should I take self­ defence classes?

The simple reason is that violence can enter your life at any time and you need to be prepared. After all the risk of burglary is quite low but you still have locks on your door and home insurance.

Brighton is quite a safe town but like anywhere it does have its issues http://www.telegraph.co.uk/education/universityeducation/11542618/Revealed­the­safest­and­m ost­dangerous­places­to­be­a­student.html

In this article Brighton has been named as one of the most crime­ ridden areas for University students with more recorded sexual assaults than any other area.

This is not nice for anyone to hear however a lot of factors go into the recording of crimes. In this article, that talks about the best places to live in the UK, it paints Brighton and Hove in a different light.

Brighton and Hove are neither in the top ten or bottom ten and sits at 109 which is well above a similar seaside resort in Blackpool and Brighton does not feature in the top 50 crime hotspots in the Uk either

So Brighton isn’t the worst area but it certainly isn’t the best either but do not let the fear of crime be a motivating factor for choosing self­defence training.
