Today is a short post about Self Defense. I personally, and the reason I built FearLess Nation around it, believe that Self Defense is much more than hand to hand combat. I believe that Self Defense starts with hand to hand combat, but it most certainly does not end there.
Krav Maga is the heart and soul of FearLess Nation, but it definitely doesn’t stop there. Krav Maga is the BEST in Defensive Tactics for open hand combat against either open hand and weapon attacks. In the world of Self Defense, Krav is the most practical and efficient system. However, we have to be better prepared than just one answer. That is why, in house, we have our Krav Maga, CQC (Close Quarter Combat) and Combat Kali programs.
CQC offers up the offensive tactics to Self Defense. Truthfully, sometimes the best defense is a good offense, and you must be prepared to answer every question appropriately. Then we have our Combat Kali, which is the edge and blunt weapons tactics. The reason we have this program is because not every situation calls for a gun, but there are many situations that call for more than hand to hand combat.
Self Defense is made up of several avenues, and one should be proficient in, not one, but all avenues. Knowing how to shoot well, use an edged tool, use a blunt tool, and offensively and defensively fight hand to hand (and hand to weapon) is crucial to being good at defending yourself!
All in all, it’s about more than training; it’s about your mindset. You need to be prepared to defend yourself physically, mentally, and spiritually. You need to be prepared by training in all aspects. That’s why at FearLess Nation in Trinity, FL, we offer all aspects of Self Defense. We want YOU to be prepared!
