What is Self Defense?
When we hear the term “Self Defense“, many of us naturally think of some form of martial art training. But the term means more than just your ability to defend yourself against another person. There are so many variables when considering all the self defense encounters that could take place. What if you have to protest yourself and a loved one? What if there are more than one attackers? What are your surroundings like? Are weapons involved? Can you escape or do you need to fight back? Are you standing or is the self defense situation on the ground? Learning a few basic self defense techniques is great but might not be enough in a real life encounter.
