When it comes to self-defence, you want to be the weapon and have the tool, not the other way around. An integrated combat approach is the key.

You may have come across an Uber safety meme like the one above, with this ‘handy hint’ for protecting yourself when using a ride service. The advice could be useful (and not just for women) — but only if it’s put in the context of training, and our social reality.

When an unseen threat like COVID-19 enters our lives, it’s easy to let panic take over (especially if it seems that not joining the panic will leave you without staple foods and toilet paper for months to come).

Facing your fears and doubts in training is a must, and the influence of skill on successful fear-control shouldn’t be underestimated.

‘Just run away’ is something we often hear from self-defence instructors — but running can turn you into prey.
