We must learn how to defend anything that comes at us. We must understand the concepts and principles of self defense, and then create the most effective ways to get out of each situation safely.
The other element to being able to defend oneself is learning how to be as aggressive as possible, and then harnessing that aggressiveness and adrenaline to create an even more effective defense.
This is not something that you can study or learn outside of a training room. You must FEEL it. You must feel the adrenaline and intensity through your entire body and use it to make your attacks stronger and more effective.
We do many drills to practice under stress and while extremely fatigued, trying to simulate what it feels like in a real fight. We push our students and teachers to fight when they think they don’t have an ounce of energy left in their bodies, and they learn to overcome even the toughest obstacles.
Learning to be aggressive will build confidence and help you believe that you can fight back against anything. When you realize the importance of this, your ability to defend yourself will dramatically increase!
In this week’s video we do one of my favorite drills. Fighting as hard as you can while being pulled in a different direction helps you feel the adrenaline and overcome obstacles while you are attempting to strike.
In the end, if you must fight for your life. Do not hold back. Flip on the light switch and go until you are ready to leave the situation safely!
Ok, that’s all for now. Enjoy the video, be safe… and GO DO SOME KRAV MAGA TODAY!
