So what does self-defence mean to you? For many, it's learning cool new moves, blocks, break-falls, trapping, arm-bars, wrist-locks, chokes etc and all played out with bare feet (who takes off their shoes and socks before a fight?) in choreographed play acting against a trusted training partner or instructor at their local martial arts school.
At V1 FITNESS we love ALL martial arts, It gives you self discipline, boosts your confidence, improves your stamina and strength. But art-form based martial arts should not be taken as self-defence training for the street.

P.s - Despite everyone in Cyprus spelling self-defence with an S, the correct U.K. English is with a C. You would't spell Colour as Color would you? So why spell Self-Defence with an S? Cyprus is historically more connected to the U.K. and has nothing to do with the U.S.A.
(Yes we reluctantly also have to use S in many of our blog posts, but this is for SEO google searches in Cyprus).
This is one of the best training demonstrations of the Tueller Drill we've seen. Why? Because they test it under stress in a reality based scenario, and with more than just the reliance of a single mechanical weapon to defeat the attack. Note the clearing of the knife with the forearm, NOT by attempting to grab the wrist or knife.
We meet way too many people that believe they have self-defence all figured out. They have in their mind how their one weapon defence system is going to defeat any attack; this might be a club, knife, pepper spay, a bunch of keys in hand, shot gun or pistol. The problem with over reliance on weapons as their sole means of defence, is what will happen if one is unable to deploy the weapon in time?
Train for the reality! You should be able to switch to hand-to-hand close quarters combat in a spit second, using a seamless training method, that changes little whether you have a weapon in your hand, or you are empty handed.
