How do you know if you are ready, prepared to defend yourself in real life? Not in a “bar fight” but a real life and death attack when you have no other option but to fight.
There are those who say that pressure points don’t work. Too bad they know nothing about them!! Many of these men are high profile internet TV show type people. I love the term they use “retired” martial artist. Yep the world is full of those experts. LOL
But how do you know? Do you need stress training? Yes, certainly live stress training is important! But it alone won’t fix the issues. You have to look at how you feel, your reactions to what is happening in order to gauge how you are doing.
People who are adrenaline junkies will often do very well in a street situation. Well as long as they posses some common sense too. This is why a ring fighter in his prime will do well often on the streets, especially in a fight. But they ALWAYS get in trouble as they age and they can no longer maintain the conditioning they have currently. Ego gets in the way! But that is person to person.
Test yourself, what happens when you are startled? Do you step back or forward? Do you go into tunnel vision quickly or are you still alert? Each answer has meaning!
They say that you lose fine motor skills under stress. For many people that is true! But how about as an example an airline pilot? When something goes wrong, and it does happen more often then you realize. This is life and death and these men NEED their fine motor skills to make adjustments!
So it can be done!
It all comes down to your psychology and the psychology of self defense.
I am currently in the process of writing a book called the Psychology of Self Defense. Plus I am offer a great preorder price for anyone interested. You can read more below.
So what about Kyusho and the streets? Well there are places you can strike that will give you the maximum effect for the force you can generate, be it large or small. Plus no matter what anyone who “thinks” they know something may say when I strike a NERVE you will DROP. Either from the pain (unable to move the arm etc) or a knockout! This is biology and not a dream of a fighter to believe what he does is superior.
