I Get Emotional When I Teach Self-Defense.
Because I hate violence.
And I get frustrated by those who confuse martial arts with real violence.
Remember Our Three D’s:
- DETECT & Avoid
- DEFUSE & De-escalate
- DEFEND & Protect (as a last resort)
Most martial arts ONLY focus on the D3 part of the equation and that’s a problem because if you have ‘no awareness/you pretty much have no chance’.
In the spirit of making you and your loved ones safer, sometimes the most effective way to get an idea across is to shock a realization into people so they aren’t the next victim.
So embrace my direct, blunt, and colorful language in the videos …
Speaking of which, have you seen part one of my ATM videos HERE?
Bad Guys Only Want 1 Of 3 Things:
Property, Body, or Life.
While there were many important tips in both videos, the most important thing is for you to always be thinking about D1 – Detect & Avoid.
For the ATM, these are the two questions you need to be asking:
- Is this the ‘best’ ATM for you right now?
- Or is it the ‘best’ ATM for your mugger?
Stay tuned for more information on how to train and prepare yourself to avoid, diffuse or win a confrontation.
