Four Must-Know Principles of Realistic Self Defense Training By Randy Lahaie

There are four indisputable principles you need to align yourself with if you hope to get maximum benefit and optimal results from self-defense.

First of all, you need to think of self-defense as being synonymous with health.

Secondly, you have to accept the fact that newly acquired knowledge and skills will “erode” over time unless you make a deliberate effort to implement them into your lifestyle.

Thirdly, acknowledge that a fight is a challenging “athletic event.” The quality of your performance will be determined by qualities that you bring to the encounter.

Lastly, the benefits of self-defense have little to do with a particular system, program or method. The primary benefits are not limited to surviving a violent encounter “some day.” They will come immediately as a result of consistent, ongoing training and lifestyle improvements.
