Fight Like A Girl may be perceived as inferior to fighting like a man, but it isn’t. In the world of asymmetric warfare, using strategies and tactics that are unconventional, unexpected, and tapping into your strengths is the best way to come out on top.
When you must defend yourself from violence, coming out on top is the primary directive. The aggressor will not “fight fair” and nor should you.
Understanding the principles of workspace, posture and pressure, stimuli overload and short work will take you in a fundamentally different direction. You will acquire actionable self defense skills without needing rote memorization and endless repetition of dozens of rigid techniques, designed to counter very specific actions.
While this approach won’t give a small box of nicely packaged, “tried and true” techniques, it will provide you ability to adapt in real time to what is occurring and apply principles and basic actions to deal with a threat. Better yet, you will learn to take advantage of opportunities in the moment, instead of hoping to see a specific stimuli to which you have a “theoretical solution” memorized and practiced.
Topics to be addressed:
- Psychological considerations.
- Concepts of workspace management.
- Importance of posture and movement.
