If you have no prior experience with martial arts it might be a very difficult task to learn on just video and net material as some principles has to be taught in a class environment to prevent learning bad technique that might just get you hurt. I say difficult however and not impossible as some has learned it that way and was successful. I recommend finding a muay thai class if possible even if it is only for a free class or 2 to just give you an oversight, there is a bunch of good muay thai beginner on YouTube, you can just search for it. All the best
In other words, each round is constructed with a reloadable brass casing as well as a clean-igniting boxer primer. In addition to that, the entire casing is nickel coated which comes in handy to prevent corrosion as well as ensure quick reload insertion and smooth ejection. The primer’s pocket on the other hand is sealed with a moisture-blocking coating which performs well under any environment.
Although some of them, in my opinion, would never work in a hostile atmosphere and would probably get you killed, there are others that I studied that will send the assailants in the opposite direction. I also picked up some practical experience on the way when I was attacked by a guy with a knife, so I can say which martial art I instinctively chose given the situation; it worked.
One of the most important training methods for self defense involves conditioning effective default responses to surprise attacks. Take a look at our self defense techniques section to see several examples of default responses and combinations. Your default response techniques need to work against a wide range of attacks, such that a counter ingrained subconsciously will work when you’re not sure which particular attack is coming. This training is primarily done at the isolation stage, but the default responses can and should also be integrated into sparring.
The question of which martial art is best for self-defence has been debated and discussed on-line for years. However, it is a subject I have given a lot of thought to over the years due to my career.
Self-defense is defined as the right to prevent suffering force or violence through the use of a sufficient level of counteracting force or violence. This definition is simple enough on its face, but it raises many questions when applied to actual situations. For instance, what is a sufficient level of force or violence when defending oneself? What goes beyond that level? What if the intended victim provoked the attack? Do victims have to retreat from the violence if possible? What happens when victims reasonably perceive a threat even if the threat doesn’t actually exist? What about when the victim’s apprehension is subjectively genuine, but objectively unreasonable?

From a prepping point of view, it would be good to have some self-defense training. You can’t be armed 24/7 in every location. And some situations just require less force than firing or even brandishing a firearm. On the other hand, you might not want to spend too much time acquiring those self-defense skills. If a particular martial art interests you as a hobby, and self-defense is a secondary consideration, that’s fine. But if you want the most practical skill set in the least time, I’d suggest finding an instructor who can bring together useful techniques from several martial arts, with the primary purpose of teaching self-defense.

According to a poll from the National Alliance for Youth Sports, around 70 percent of kids in the United States stop playing organized sports by the age of 13 because “it’s just not fun anymore.’” Another recent study by George Washington University points out that 90 percent of kids said they played sports because they were fun.
Thanks for the comment. Glad that you enjoyed the article. That is why I say there are always exceptions to the traditional art rule as some of them, such as your case with the Hapkido, do strive to modernize the training. All the best.
