Self Defense

Self-defense Martial Arts - Street fighter - Self Defense - Property Crime
Self Defense Psychology - Self-defense by avoiding danger - excellent self-defense website: not selling ultimate fighting system or super-duper killer gadget, but free and straight info about PERSONAL SAFETY by avoiding violence if possible. Huge site, because look at the problem from all sides. It's not about punching but about people skills: what to say and what not: start by controlling YOUR OWN emotions. site is huge and wordy because subject is complex and author is NOT selling 'magic amulets' which work for every case (because they don't exist). What you think you know can kill you. if seemingly "normal" circumstances that are something else, and you ignored danger signs and failed to adapt.
