The first rule of self defense is to avoid situations that puts you or your loved ones at risk for physical harm. Being alert, using common sense, avoiding hazards, and limiting dangerous activities are all ways to promote self defense. However, no matter how much we try, sooner or later we will be in close proximity to danger. Even if you take all the precautions, danger may come to you wherever you may be whether it is at work, home, or during daily activities. It is at this point that you should be ready to anticipate and react to personal attacks with no hesitation. To prepare for a self defense situation you must train yourself to a skill level that will let you react naturally. Crimes against people such as Home Invasions, Car Jacking, Muggings, Strong Arm Robbery, Burglary, and Assaults happen very quickly. Most crimes are committed within seconds, leaving very little time for defensive reactions so you should have enough skill and knowledge to launch a counter attack. You should have a plan, prepare, and TRAIN, TRAIN, TRAIN!
