What is self defense? What is it really? What should it be? What is the state of the self defense industry?
Simple questions at face value but many important points can be drawn out from analysing them.
Firstly, we determine that existing definitions of self defense are seriously flawed.
Secondly, we explore a new updated definition that is much more useful.
Thirdly, we identify that the self defense industry is doing a very poor job of teaching students useful self defense knowledge and skills.
Fourthly, the martial arts industry is no better at teaching self defense skills.
And finally, we realise that there is almost no serious consideration of the legal use of force. A massive oversight.
We also cover much more ground. This is a long post - over 3000 words so get yourself a coffee before diving in.
