How to Find Good Self Defense Instruction

Whatever the reason is for you to learn self defense, whether you simply wants to feel safer in the street, you would like to have more self confidence or be able to protect you loved ones, you are probably wondering what good self defense instruction really is and how you can know if a course is good or not.

Real self defense is about knowing how to fight your way out of a hazardous situation when you have no other options, no way to run and you can not get help. The sort of training needed to learn this is different from traditional martial arts or combat sports like Mma or kickboxing.

To start with, there are no rules on the street, an attacker can attack you from anywhere (he will stop in front of you and bow like in the dojo) and he will always have an advantage on you, whether that is the element of surprise, his , size or speed. This is typical of a predator, they will not take un-necessary risks. The same thing applies to combat sports, in the ring there are rules of what you may and may not do, on the street there are none. An attacker is not going play fair and to get out of a dangerous situation neither should you.

You see, what you need to learn is the same dirty tricks as your attacker will use. Simple, effective methods that will stop your attacker dead in his tracks and allow you to escape, unharmed. These methods must be simple and easy to use. When under extreme stress (like when you are attacked) you will not be able to perform a graceful and complicated move. The moves to use for self defense must be so easy that you can perform them in your sleep.

Many self defense systems (this is also common practice in martial arts training) are using a predetermined move for an attack. They will tell if the attacker comes at you like this, you will do this and that. Unfortunately this rarely works. It might seem to work when you practice but imagine on street under extreme stress. Do you think you will remember the move you were suppose to use? Especially when there are so many of them? On top of that you might be knocked down before you manage to use it.

There is another way of defending yourself. Every human being (even big strong thugs) have week spots on their bodies, the nose, eyes, groin and throat being a few. If you can learn how to strike those spots on the attacker, then you will be able to defend yourself against anyone no matter how big and strong they are. This can be done in any situation and postion you might be in and you do not have remember any fancy moves to do this, just hit the opponent.

This kind of self defense instruction will work for anyone, young or old man or woman or even if you are disabled. In fact the weaker you seem the more important self defense becomes as attackers always tend to attack victims they judge easy prey. Not a lot of strength is needed for this kind self defense and it is very effective.

To summarize, if you want some really good and effective self defense instruction, you should find a program designed like this. , Smart moves that are simply and easy to perform. A program that will teach you how to find your attackers week spots and stop him before he stops you. This is the best kind of self defense you can find and this will make you feel safer in the street and if the worst happens, you will be prepared for it.
