Learn to Fight

I have been on a mission for the last 17 or 18 years sharing what I do, teaching people to fight. But, why? I think there are several reasons people should learn to fight, or defend themselves. Let's start with bullying. As a kid in elementary school and then in middle school. I really did not know how to fight. I'm not even talking about physically fighting. I didn't understand that but I also did not understand how to stand up for myself. Consequently, I got bullied all the time, picked on, called names, made fun of, and punched. Learning to stand up to bullies requires confidence, it requires speaking up for oneself, it requires the ability to back up what you are saying when the time comes because talk does not always work. Reason #1? Bullying.

Reason number two is kind of the same as reason one. We live in a world with lots of bad people. There are people who would take advantage of you in a heartbeat. There are predators looking for prey. There are people who will rob, steal, and assault you to get what they want from you. This can be a bit disconcerting, however, if you know how to handle yourself it can be very easy to deal with those out there who would do you harm.

Reason number three men are supposed to be protectors. It is part of our DNA to protect our families, friends, and those who are not able to stand up for or defend themselves. This is p[art of our natural bent. When men disagree or tell me they are passivists I like to challenge them by asking if they'd enjoy watching a loved one injured by one of the people I mentioned above? Of if they would stand by while someone weaker and less able was pummeled by a bad guy? Things to think about.

Reason four women should know how to stop someone beating them, sexually assaulting them or committing domestic violence against them. It happens every day all over the world. Women are beaten, abused, raped, and mistreated. Women should have some skills to manage situations like the ones mentioned before. Skills are easy to come by if you are willing to put in the time and energy to learn them, practice them, and keep training them for a time.

\There are other reasons to learn to fight but that is four quick reasons off the top of my head. I think people need to know that calling 911 and hoping they arrive in time to save you is a fantasy. I had to call 911 one night when three drunk, highly intoxicated people were trying to get into my apartment at 3am. They were entering the wrong apartment, wake me up, scare me and are arguing back and forth through the closed door. I dial 911...the police never showed up. Hours I waited and finally, the would-be intruders left.

I cannot stress enough about how we must be prepared for bad things with the hope they never happen.
