Basics of Self Defense

Here we show how we develop our self defense skills from the ground up.  To help you follow that evolution, we will batch the concepts into groups of 6-10 so that you can trace the evolution of concept for your self.  Over time, you will see for yourself that mastering the basics opens the doors to deeper understanding.    As one matures, the “geometry” and the “zones” simply fade from  consciousness, and movement becomes free flowing and instinctive.

These are the basics that almost folks overlook, or try to circumvent.  Remember ... there are no short cuts!

These clips are for entertainment and general informational purposes only.  Actual self defense should be practiced in a controlled environment emphasizing safety, and only under the direct supervision of a Black Belt instructor, and only after you have been cleared by your personal physician.

Please...if you like coming, lend your support!  If you benefit from what you find here, show your appreciation with a contribution.  Doing so will assure our continued presence on line, and expansion into new areas of interest over time.  We have many plans and ideas for the future, but will require significant upgrades in video recording equipment, software and computer hardware, on top of the increasing expenses for web volume and throughput.  As it stands, we are extended to the limit of available resources.
