Judoka spend almost 80% of their time learning how to throw people who don’t actually want to be thrown, so how do you think a non-Judoka will do against the Judo player. Simply put, if a Judo player gets their hands onto you then you will be hitting the ground with serious force.

The gun defence is so effective that proper application will always leave you with the gun in one second, whether or not you are smaller than your opponent. There is nothing the attacker can do once the technique is initiated except running as fast as he can in the opposite direction. The knife defence is basically Muay Thai blocks with extremely basic jiu jitsu to disarm the knife, also incredibly effective. It also incorporates ground fighting, which is actually just the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu syllabus.
“Two guys were playing pool,” he says. “I was watching them play. I was having a shitty week, apparently they were having a shitty day. Our eyes crossed at one point. One guy gets in my face and he says to me, ‘Do you have a fucking problem man?’ And I with complete honesty and earnestness I say, ‘Brother I got a lot of problems man, I don’t know why you ask. Does it show on my face? That’s why I’m here. I’m kinda drinking them away.'”
TFT Is matter-of-fact, no-nonsense, effective training. I’m a military combat veteran who has studied various martial arts and this program is unique in that its not a sport, its survival. I spent 5 years in a state prison as well, (married, successful, and reformed now I might add). I can assure you that the animals I was incarcerated with have no problems taking, hurting, and killing. Wish I would have know some of this back then, might have avoided a lot of pain. I plan on continuing this training as well as teaching my wife and son.
Strikes to the face and head are important, but the attacker will expect them, so instead, block his right-handed attack with your left fist (or vice versa), and punch with your other hand straight into the soft spot below his sternum as hard as possible, twisting the hips. This target is the solar plexus, and will incapacitate him as effectively as a strike to the groin.
In many ways, Aikido is not a traditional martial art. For example, Aikido fighters consider the safety and well-being of their attacker as much as they do their own. Rather than defeat their opponent, an Aikido fighter’s goal is to find a peaceful resolution.
All in all, this hollow point ammo is used for self-defense for your personal protection. Its Hi-Shok rating on the other hand is basically similar to the Hydra-Shok design, but without a center post.
The primary advantage of having a sound suppressor on a home-defense firearm is reduced sound signature. A suppressed firearm eliminates the need for hearing protection, though during a critical incident, hearing protection is not a priority. Rob Pincus demonstrates another advantage of having a on your home-defense firearm: reduced muzzle blast. Silencer or Suppressor?
We understand the importance and the differences that lie within the realm of self-defense for men vs women. Concealed carry options can differ for women, there may be strength differences depending on the threat, and more. We help our members, men and women, understand the context of self-defense training for women. The nature of the attacks can differ greatly depending on the scenario. Our goal is to shed the light on proper training for females to obtain the upper hand if ever caught in a critical incident.
Many people are familiar with the term “black belt” and associate it with having a very high ranking in the practice of martial arts. However, there is much more to the system of the martial arts belts, including the order of their rankings and what each color belt means.
I have compiled a list of martial arts for you, and I will give my honest view on each one and its ability for self-defence. Now while I have listed these arts in a number fashion that is not because I am ranking them in any particular order. Everyone’s needs are different and as such what works for one will not necessarily work for another. However these are the ten most solid martial arts out there, and you cant really go wrong with any of them.
Whether you choose to go unarmed, are caught without a weapon on you, or become disarmed during a struggle, training to be safe includes unarmed self-defense training. PDN’s extensive collection of unarmed self-defense videos includes demonstrations of several different systems, including Krav Maga, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, grappling, Peak Performance, Crazy Monkey Defense, and related concepts such as functional fitness, understanding anatomy, and improvised tools. Unarmed does not mean defenseless – we show you how!
“Recently, an altercation led to a man running full bore at me (I’m 6’6” 245, he’s probably 6’1”-6’2” 250), in an attempt to tackle me. I’m not a great wrestler, but I have learned a bit about it from grappling. I ducked in for a double leg takedown, and though I couldn’t quite grasp my hand to secure the takedown, I still managed to get a good enough grasp to set up a nice trip. I landed in side control, and quickly moved into mount (completely on top of someone). And I proceeded to wrap him up/neutralize any offense from him, until I was able to verbally calm him until I could get off. So, in this case, it worked well.” – Unknown (sourced from a Reddit forum)
A defendant who successfully invokes self-defense may be found not guilty or not liable. If the defendant’s self-defense was imperfect, the self-defense may only reduce the defendant’s liability. Imperfect self-defense is self-defense that was arguably necessary but somehow unreasonable. For example, if a person had a Good Faith belief that deadly force was necessary to repel an attack, but that belief was unreasonable, the defendant would have a claim of imperfect self-defense. In some jurisdictions, the successful invocation of such a defense reduces a murder charge to Manslaughter. Most jurisdictions do not recognize imperfect self-defense.

Check how long they last. Expect a full course to last approximately two to three months. However, don’t shy away from shorter programs. Favor classes that aim to teach basic techniques in a short time. Avoid open-ended programs that actively push you to enroll in more advanced training after your beginner’s course.
The other upside of the “Always de-escalate when possible” policy is that it creates the element of surprise if you reach the point where you do have to strike. Don’t build toward it. “Don’t challenge the aggressor, don’t threaten them, don’t insinuate they’re wrong, don’t tell them what to do. Don’t say things like back off, leave me alone, don’t touch me, calm down, relax — all of that stuff is challenging. If the person deems themselves superior to you, you don’t want to be telling them what to do.”
4) Understanding of the law meant I knew I had to control my opponent after he hit the ground rather than continue to pound him/deal damage, called the police and requested bystanders/witness to please remain to give a statement,
Safety and survival in today’s world requires a definite course of action. Effective options are provided by teaching women to take an active role in their own self-defense and psychological well being.
This article explores the effectiveness of self-defense training for college women. Advocates of self-defense training believe these courses will not only provide women with the physical survival techniques necessary to repel attacks effectively, but that this kind of training will also help to prevent future violence by developing traits such as assertiveness and confidence in individuals. There is evidence that women who convey such characteristics are less likely to be victimized. Opponents argue that self-defense training does not properly prepare women for an attack, does not adequately address acquaintance rape threats, and can provide a dangerous false sense of security to students. This article reviews the relevant literature, outlines practical suggestions for initiatives in this area, and describes a model self-defense course at one university. Guidelines for evaluation and implications for university policy and program decisions that address violence against women on college campuses are included.

The following model was given to us by Justin Kocher, 2nd Dan in Danzan Ryu Jujitsu (Westside DRJ Los Angeles). He developed this summation after many long hours of discussing, researching, training, teaching and wrestling with the problem of communicating the issues involved in self-defense. It is a simple and elegant model for explaining what we mean by “effective self-defense training must be multi-layered.”
Im trying to find a self defense class. Im tired of the pain and suffering, im tired of running. Ive come to realize nobody is really there for you. Its you who has the strength. Anyone can become a hero for themselves if they take that step to change. I want to be stronger, much stronger. Not just physically but mentally as well. Taking that physical step can help me build the strength i need. So “HELP” i shout out deep within. Im determined to find a class. I dont really have much money, ill take anything i can.
I would also like to state that if self-defence is your only aim and you are not looking for an oriental lifestyle as well, I would stay away from traditional martial arts like karate or taekwondo or aikido. These arts take years to master before you can dare to take on muggers on the street, and even with years of practice, they won’t guarantee your safety largely due to outdated training methods that don’t prepare you for street fighting. I would like to state that there are exceptions to the norm, though, as with all things in life, but that’s an article of its own.
Spent a week here for my Phase A Instructor Training…they treated me like it was my home gym. Couldn’t of had a better experience, props to all the staff for making my trip one to remember. I’ll definitely be back to visit and train again!!! …. Read more
