No matter what you learn in the dojo, you may not actually be prepared for a real life violent situation. Here are some observations by a martial arts master on how to handle these situations. Mainly, you have to understand that acts of violence do not make sense and you have to let logic go in order to defend yourself.

Key Takeaways:

  • Telling other people how to use self-defense skills to survive a dangerous or potentially lethal encounter when you’ve never experienced one can be pretentious.
  • A major difficulty faced by normal people in violent encounters is that, with few exceptions, the behavior of the attacker just doesn’t make sense
  • What you can do is train to eliminate your internal rules that say all aggressive acts must “make sense.”
