Master Real Self Defense In A Few Minutes

Aug 17, 2007
An actual self defense situation is very different from the safety of a karate class. Most people have no real-world Self defense training. A karate student having spent many hours with martial arts teachers only learn self defense in a controlled setting. In a real life self defense incident your mindset is sure to be heightened. There will be no instructor only your survival instincts.

While there have been countless martial arts and self defense systems designed around a particular emotional response mode, no one mode is right or wrong. It is almost impossible to duplicate the actual actions of someone fighting for their life in a classroom. Your response mode will most definitely result from the amount of perceived danger.

In day to day activity self defense is not tops in the minds of most individuals. Those involved in the law enforcement and security industries have a duty to learn self defense techniques as a part of their chosen profession. Most everyone else learn self defense to protect themselves from harm.

Martial arts or other self defense courses are great to learn, but they are not without setbacks. The shear expense and time required makes them prohibited to many. It is quite a commitment to learn a self defense discipline. It is often a commitment that some cannot make. Fortunately, there are other less binding self defense methods, which can provide that added protection. These methods relieve you of the burden of committing lots of time and money.

Just about any ordinary object can aid you in preparing for self defense. Being prepared can be simple as carrying something sharp on your key chain for stabbing. Another method is for women to place a solid object in their purse. Swinging it at the right moment, can be a reality check for a criminal during an assault.

The number of ordinary self defense methods that can be used in the face of danger is endless. Most self defense instructors do not place emphasis on employing these simple yet proven methods. They have been conditioned to teach the art of which they are master. While it will not directly benefit most, students are satisfied with learning, self defense in this vacuum.

Self Defense training is a way to take back control of your life, rather than cowering when a dangerous situation arises. The key is to learn that which is going to immediately get you out of trouble. Many people will take self defense courses, or arm themselves with weapons. Most are still ill prepared to defend themselves.

Knowing how you are going to use the tools you have is as important as what you choose to learn or carry. If you are not prepared to use them, the tools you have are as useless as water is to a drowning man. When defending yourself you must learn to apply them correctly.

With the proper discipline, you can become a master of Karate in a few years. With a few minutes of practice and the right tools you can save your life if you are attacked today. Most criminals count on surprising their victim. Surprise can also work to your advantage. Most attackers want expect you to fight back.

The principal targets in self defense are bony parts, such as forearms, back of hand, shins, or even the rib cage. The right self defense tool can give you the added pressure you need. If you are physically and mentally prepared, no matter where you hit them, it is likely to hurt quite a bit.

You should resist to the fullest extent possible if it is not detrimental to do so. Kick, scream and shove sharp things in their eyes. Remember damage to the eyes will almost certainly give you time to escape. Always be aware of your surroundings and have a plan to defend yourself if things get out of hand.
