Re: My forum pet peeve: "I never got in a fight - the ultimate self-defense!"

So, it kind of bothers me when someone comes up with the solution set "I never got in a the ultimate self defense." and essentially uses that as an excuse to practice substandard things in a dojo where it should be primarily about the physical aspects of a fight.

If this is an area of concern for us, we should be practicing failure over and over. Understanding our physical limitations (and emotional), through being in positions that are very very bad. your own the ground, he is on your back, being choked, pinned against a wall...all those things and figure out ways to get out of them, turn the tables, and take back control...primarily we should always remember that first and foremost it is about the physical, violent nature of imposing wills.
