Self Defense: Exposing the Reality
Much of what is being taught today in martial arts schools, seminars and videos, just won't work on the street!
Our goal is to expose the truth about real self defense.
90% of what is taught in most martial arts schools, self defense seminars and videos just won't work on the street! Most traditional training would not be effective while under the duress of a real attack.
The number one factor in effective self defense is dealing with the adrenal rush which is the natural result of aggression. This 'adrenaline dump', can have devastating effects on our minds and body. For self defense to be effective in the real world, this single factor (the adrenal rush) must be addressed and recognized for what it is and what it does.
One of the major flaws of most traditional training is that the entire concept of the adrenal rush is either ignored or not even addressed.
Most traditional instructors aren't even aware of the effects of adrenaline in the self defense arena.
While there is a number of excellent self defense programs in the United States that teach adrenal stress response training, many instructors choose not experience the training themselves. This may be due to the fear that they might put themselves in what they may consider a vulnerable position because of the unknown factor. Master instructors aren't comfortable, for the most part, in allowing outside instructors into their school.
Just a few of the devastating effects of the adrenal rush in self defense situations are tunnel vision, auditory exclusion, loss of fine motor coordination, body shakes as well as a limited amount of cognitive thinking ability. If we just consider two factors, the loss of fine motor skills and the limited ability to think clearly, I think you can see you easily get yourself in trouble if they are not addressed.
While we thought we were keeping things pretty simple, it wasn't until I had the opportunity to attend an adrenal stress response seminar that I could fully appreciate how ineffective most traditional techniques are.
Street Self Defense 101, a two video set has been produced with the concepts of adrenal stress response training in mind. The videos are a result of years of streamlining and focusing our training to simple, direct and effective techniques that work on the street.
