The Best Defense

  "The best defense is a good offense!" We've all heard that before. And, yes, it is true, in most cases. So, does that mean we should be beating up everyone before they beat us? No, not at all.

  Martial arts are fighting systems. With them, we can cause serious damage to others (and ourselves if we are not careful).

1.Avoid the situation altogether (ie going to a bar where you know there will be trouble if you go)

2.Walk or run away from the situation if it presents itself

3.Talk your way out of it (God and evolution gave you a brain so use it)

4.Control techniques (for friends or ones who are annoying but not threatening)

and finally

5.Use force for force.
