Avoiding Violence and Personal Expression

Senshido Europe article

I spoke to another “self defence Instructor” about a very unusual haircut he was sporting when he showed up in a foreign country for a training seminar, this drastic hairdo really stood out, but when asked he candidly replied “Oh, I get this done whenever I travel abroad!” So let me get this straight, we teach people to avoid drawing attention to themselves, to avoid standing out in a crowd, and then go do the complete opposite? Do as i say, not as I do? C’mon, WTF?

Again I ask how many of us actually practise what we preach?

How many of us actually conduct awareness drills and incorporate them into our everyday lives? Do any of us actually continuously scan our environment for presence of the abnormal or is it just something used as class fillers?

It's funny how attached people can get to a certain look they want to present to the world some times.
