3 Keys To Effective Self-Defenseby Shidoshi Jeffrey M. Miller
(C) 2008, Warrior Concepts Int'l, Inc.
When you think about self-defense situations, what are the top three considerations for being effective? Is it having strength, stamina, power, or a ton of way-cool, tricky, martial arts techniques?
While all of those things help to one extent or another, none of them really touches on the priorities that will help you to prevail in a life or death, self-defense, struggle. Don't get me wrong. It certainly helps to be the bigger, faster, stronger, or more skilled combatant. But these things are only helpful if you're in a situation where they will serve you.
Let me explain it a different way.
Strength only matters if you are in a position or can grab your assailant in a way that allows you the use of your strength. And as for power...
... power is derived from size and motion. If an assailant jumps you and pins you to a wall or the floor, you will find it difficult to generate any sort of power as we normally think of it.
Stamina only matters if you're in a fight that's going to last minutes instead of seconds. Typically, karate and boxing tournaments have two minute rounds or bouts. That's an eternity in a life-and-death, self-defense situation where the goal is to get things over and done with in...
...less than 10 SECONDS!
As for knowing a lot of techniques, what can I say? Information is power, right?
