Can Traditional Martial Arts Help?

There are a lot of people who say that Traditional Martial Arts are too outdated to be useful for self defense.

That’s both true and untrue… It’s all in how you train and what you do AFTER CLASS.

For example, if you always practice self defense techniques from some formal stance and with pre-determined steps, you’ll not be able to apply it to real life.

After you’ve gotten the basics of a technique down, if you and your partner then practice the technique from a more realistic stance and from different angles, without prearranged timing, it can become a powerful tool.

We’re going to be discussing how to apply traditional techniques to the real world here in our self-defense blog, so stay tuned.
