I’ve recently had a Gestalt like epiphany. Most martial artists have no idea what I’m talking about when I say “Reality Based Self Defense” or “Complete Martial Arts.” I base this new found understanding on numerous emails from my readers. I decided to make a list of the major components of what a truly comprehensive big picture real life personal protection program must include.
Here it is…
Combat Survival Psychology, Legal and Financial Survival, Verbal Attack Survival, Unarmed Stand Up and Ground Survival, Stand Up and Ground Use of and Defense Against IMPACT Protection Tools, Stand Up and Ground Use of and Defense Against EDGED Protection Tools, Stand Up and Ground Use of and Defense Against FLEXIBLE Protection Tools, Stand Up and Ground Use of and Defense Against PROJECTILE Protection Tools, Multiple Attacker Survival, Home Invasion Survival, Car Jacking Survival, Work Place Security, Rape Prevention, Kidnapping Prevention, Bullying Prevention, Military Combatives, LEO Combatives, Bouncer/Door Man Survival, First Respondent Medicine, Urban, Suburban and Wilderness Survival, Flexibility, Strength and Cardio Training, Nutritional Medicine and Energy Medicine.
If you’re interested in RBSD and you are not training in each of these areas you are selling yourself short or even worse, you are letting your instructor sell you short. Embrace the future and give yourself permission to be the most powerful courageous warrior that you were born to be. Don’t settle for anything less than GREATNESS.
