One’s personal safety should not be equated with one’s ability to fight. If your perception of self-protection is fighting off an assailant, your intention will be directed towards learning physical techniques and therefore, your foundation will be misdirected. Success in self-protection is not in engagement but in avoidance. The ultimate victory in self-protection is when nothing perceivable happens! The philosophy of confrontation is avoidance. If it can’t be prevented, avoid it; if it can’t be avoided, defuse it; if it can’t be defused, escape; if escape is not possible, then engage. Physical conflict for defense should be the last resort, not the first.
Benefits of heightened AWARENESS
– Common sense before self-defense
– Mind moves before body
