  • Good day

    Good day,

    I am 40, well nearly and have practiced Tae Kwon Do, Hapkido, Muay Thai, Boxing, Krav Maga and currently BJJ. Never practiced long enough to be any good and hampered by working for the UN in Africa which makes training very sporadic. I practice BJJ for the same reason I practice golf; because I enjoy it.

    I've moved away from the idea of personal protection in favor of community involvement. Neighborhood watch, the Church, voting for better policing and ways to get young people away from drugs and violence. I am less interested in my own defense and more concerned with 'that old lady who lives down the road'. Martial Arts training won't protect her but a better community just might. You know her too, she lives just down the road from you too; have you checked in on her lately?

    One aspect I did like of the Krav Maga training I did (actually TKM), was that it included working with other people to allow for third party defense.

    Chat to you all soon.

    Welcome to the forum. What do you mean by this? It sounds interesting.

      Thank you.

      Third party defense is when you and preferably someone else go to defend a third party. For example, drills which focus on what to do if you see someone attacking someone else. Of course calling the police should be high on your list of priorities.

        Of course calling the police (if possible) comes first! That's actually a pretty cool twist though. Presumably it teaches how to work with the other person? BTW you've made some points about self-defense in the community that are very near and dear to my own heart. I own a house in a transitional neighborhood and I'm lucky enough to have great neighbors. Self-defense has a lot more to do with the way we look out for each other than it does our individual ability to fight.

          Thanks SL.

          Yes it's dear to me too. I always think of my now aging parents too. I genuinely believe too that it's by a better sense of community that we stand the best chance of reducing the number of victims in society and having happier, safer day to day lives. Perhaps people could be doing things they enjoy rather than training to kill each other (is that really fun?)

          I've been down the road of trying to become a tough guy, it never happened anyway and now it's just no longer my focus. That said I do still actively train and as much as I enjoy it I do have to ask myself deep down why I've used so much of my time on it.........

          Yes the Krav Maga third party stuff was about co-operating with another person to help stop an attacker. It was a good idea but frankly I think any few friends who train together could come up with their own drills too, or get help from cops or security personell types since they do a lot of this stuff in the real world.

            I've done a number of "scenario" type drills I'd be happy to share...

            Welcome aboard Junker...

            I'm a "beater" like the old car in the front... It should be dismantled and sold for parts or scrap but it still runs so you just KEEP on driving it...

            LOL

              Root cause analysis?

              The best way to win a fight is without fighting - not a bad idea.
