Today I am doing a podcast on self-defense. This is the first part of a series I am doing, addressing self-defense for women, and how it doesn’t have to be that complicated to learn a few simple moves. Often I see intricate videos with multiple techniques, produced as self-defense tutorials for women to view online and thus protect themselves from attackers. The problem is, the people making the videos are skilled martial artists who have thousands of hours of training these techniques and are presenting them to untrained women in the most complicated way possible. Seriously, I watch most of these videos and can come up with ridiculously easier escape techniques, and I know they know them too. It’s irresponsible to show off when you can give a much more basic and probably more effective escape to the people watching your video.
So here’s my intro to self-defense. I will post videos with the next parts and please, leave questions in the comments section if you want to know more about self-defense.
