Things you should know before going to a self defense workshop

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but one self defense seminar is most likely not going to be enough to save your butt if the fecal matter hits the preverbal fan. Here is why, most self defense workshops are more technique focused than principal focused. Sure, a specific technique can get you out of a certain grab against a role player that does not have ill intent towards you. But a principal can be applied across a much broader spectrum of potential attacks. You simply do not have enough time in a single workshop to cover every position an attacker may place a defender in. However, you can learn a principal that you can apply standing, in the clinch, or on the ground. That’s why we teach a principal based approach to self defense.
