Re: Developing courage
As far as Martial situations for self defense, I think there are several fundamental scenarios. You get trapped and pushed into a corner of a wall, you get pulled down between objects like couches or cars. You get pushed inside a vehicle. Pulled out of the vehicle. The person is on top of you. You are on top of the person...etc.
Things like that. How to "improve" yourself, mentally, skillfully, and physically CAN be trained and you CAN improve your ability to act MORE correctly or efficiently.
