"What is defense? It is a countermeasure to aggression, an act of protection from danger". -Robert Anthony Bussey
Self defense is a myth. I know. I’ve been studying and it for years. The false sense of security my sister might buy in store or from some “expert” outright scares me. What would really work if she was threatened? Attacked? Worse?
“Violent crime is everywhere, happening every minute. It's random, and it can happen to you.” from Taking Precautions by Robert Bussey at www.busseystyle.com
Should she take a self defense course? Buy mace? Nice shoes won’t make me dance and I wouldn’t take an introductory gymnastics class and then go for gold. What should I tell my sister to do? Learn about Personal Protection.
People ask what they should do specific situations? I tell them to get a foundation in movement and learn how to react, either one being more important than learning particular techniques. Learning about how attacks happen, how to react and how to move is more practical and valuable than learning twist to pull out of a wrist grab or a shoulder grab.
