Re: Primary Techniques for Self Defense

The real defence, in my opinion, will come down to your own instinctive mindset when confronted with aggression, including your own ability to remain self-aware and take conscious actions, rather than acting reflexively.

There is an interesting write-up by a retired policeman who did martial arts about what he ended up using in his work, which I think is relevant here.

Naturally having something useful to say is like natural responses during training: It takes much practice.
