Common Self Defence Myths

February 14, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 178

The Internet is full of tips which if you examine closely are just merely "common sense" tips without real analysis or insights. Some of these tips that you see online are not even true. As a matter of fact, there are a lot of self defence myths online. Unfortunately, a lot of people have fallen victim to one or more of them. So in the hopes of exposing these misleading information, let me share to you some of the most common self defence myths.

1. You can become a self defence guru in just a few days with this downloadable self defence course. You have probably seen several ads and ebooks about self defence on the Internet which promises to reveal secrets on how to become a master defender. These are not true and more often than not these are just a bunch of scams trying to pull money from your pockets. If you really want to learn more about self defence, you would need to have a more practical physical approach. Purely relying on ebooks and textual information just won't cut it.

2. Most martial arts are not effective in the street. Many people are saying that martial arts are kind of useless these days because they are outdated and irrelevant on modern situations. For the record, all martial arts have evolved due to the need for protection and they are all effective if they are practiced well. Some people might have said so because some martial arts are taught in a way that emphasizes on history or ritual over defensive applications. Nevertheless, martial arts should not be regarded as ineffective.

3. Learning basic self defence moves is just a waste of time and money. Just get a gun. People who thinks this way probably do not know anything either about martial arts or self defense, or both. Yes, guns provide some advantages but they also have some drawbacks. Guns are dangerous weapons and shouldn't be handled just by anyone. If you are going to use some sort of a defence weapon then you should be properly trained and ready to use it when the situation calls for it.

4. Self defence is ineffective if the attacker has a gun or a knife. Good self defence isn't just a cool series of physical movements. It is a combination of physical awareness, threat assessment and physical fighting skills. It is not impossible to escape an armed attacker if you know all these things.
