REAL SELF-DEFENSE vs MARTIAL ARTS
The ugly truth:
1) Fighting on the street is what you do TO someone
2) Martial Arts are things you do WITH someone!
There are trainers that know this and teach what works.There are also those who mean well but teach what they WANT to work. Horrible things have happened by learning a Martial Art that doesn’t work on the street.
I really do understand the desire to make their style or club
effective in the community. I have studied many great and wonderful martial arts and at my fight club, we teach most of them, but when I teach civilians how to protect themselves on the street it is nothing like martial arts.
When someone wishes to learn practical self-defense for real life situations the instructor must completely realize that the student trusts them with their life!
It doesn’t get more serious than that.
