2. Learn to hit really, really hard. There is no super-secret death touch. Your personal training must include hitting things as fast and as hard as you can, while avoiding the same against you…and do this while maintaining your balance.
Another important value of sport martial arts is that they teach you to handle pain, injury and attack without freaking out. A wrestler or judoka expert who is used to being slammed and thrown around or a boxer who is used to taking punches is a much more dangerous street fighter then a point contact Karate fighter who never gets hit or grabbed.
The issues about behaviors that lead up to violence are of major import and should not be given lip-service or merely a passing nod while rushing off to learn how to hit someone.

(Steiner’s comment: GREAT ADVICE! Again, we have urged this for decades as a good tactic, and we see no reason to change the counsel. In fact, it is NOT likely that an armed criminal will in fact fire att you at all. He obviously did not wish to fire when he had you at gun point; and he can see that raising an alarm by firing when you run away will only attract attention to himself with little chance of hitting you.)
