Street situations and other self defense situations are so scary because they are often unexpected and potentially deadly. On top of that many techniques learned in a casual or sport context will not apply. Real world martial arts in a self-defense situation is very different. But that makes them even more relevant to think about and analyze.
Let’s watch the hours of videos of self defense situations available online and learn some lessons. This course is in no way glorifying violence. I want to make that clear. We only seek to learn lessons from the footage from street situations that exist all over the world. Also, when in doubt, please ask a professional. Finally, run away when possible, please. That’s just a general rule of thumb. What you will see in many of these videos even if we didn’t mention it is that running away was almost always possible. In fact, running almost always could have solved it.
Note: we will add to this playlist constantly, so please check back for updates every week for more analysis of self defense situations!
