the practicalities of personal defence
DEFENSE, SELF-DEFENSE. ... Force likely to cause death or great bodily harm is justified in self-defense only if a person reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. The Right To Protect One's Person And Property From Injury. Mental self-defense is the ability to get into the proper mindset for executing a physical self-defense technique. Many martial arts schools and self-defense classes focus primarily on the physical nature of self-defense and often neglect the mental aspect. If you are skilled in the physical aspects of a defensive technique, but lack the mental toughness and tenacity to execute it, you will not be able to perform - especially under duress. Controlled environments cannot easily mimic the stress and adrenaline dump which occurs during an attack. There is a very real need to be able to enter the proper "mindset" if one is to have a realistic chance of surviving a potentially deadly encounter. This mindset is the ability to focus purely on the successful outcome of a situation without becoming concerned with the consequences, even if they prove fatal in the dedicated pursuit of your desired outcome. The ability to go over, under, around or through any obstacle is the essence of this "never quit" mindset. Self-preservation is a very powerful motivator and it is essential for ensuring that one has the mental toughness and proper mindset to emerge the victor in an encounter with one or more attackers.

In this episode we talk about various aspects of the martial arts especially in self defence. Self-defence is a countermeasure that involves defending the health and well-being of oneself from harm. The use of the right of self-defense as a legal justification for the use of force in times of danger is available in many jurisdictions, but the interpretation varies widely. Physical self-defense is the use of physical force to counter an immediate threat of violence. Such force can be either armed or unarmed. In either case, the chances of success depend on a large number of parameters, related to the severity of the threat on one hand, but also on the mental and physical preparedness of the defender. Unarmed Many styles of martial arts are practiced for self-defense or include self-defense techniques. Some styles train primarily for self-defense, while other martial or combat sports can be effectively applied for self-defense. Some martial arts train how to escape from a knife or gun situation, or how to break away from a punch, while others train how to attack. To provide more practical self-defense, many modern day martial arts schools now use a combination of martial arts styles and techniques, and will often customize self-defense training to suit the participants' lifestyles, occupations, age groups and gender, and physical and mental capabilities.

Martial arts and training time
In this podcast episode we talk about training times for the different aspects of training in the martial arts. We discuss competition, hobby and self protection training. I also go into a little rant about the politics within Hema so if you are not into that give this one a miss :) But within this podcast episode are some very good tips on training. Any martial artist worth his salt will try to create a reality-based approach over a traditional, fixed, static approach, which is desirable. But prepare to be ridiculed for it as this routinely happens to people advocating a reality-based approach. Such attempts will make enemies from the die-hard Left because facts beat feelings everytime, and in reality based martial arts, their is no room for feelings, only facts.People don’t like change. They don’t like having to adapt and refine and evolve. They often respond with hostility to those who challenge their echo chambers and question their “sacred traditions” in politics and the martial arts. Any kind of reality based martial arts will force people out of their Safe Space.They rarely engage people in real time, off of Facebook and Twitter. I’ve certainly long understood the concept of reality-based combat. There’s a strong link between reality-based thinking and adaptability, and the practicality of fighting systems; But immersion within the world of science and skepticism is what will enrich your metaphorical lexicon in this area.
