Hello all in the world now and days there is a lot of violence. Because of that here in this modern world you have too be prepared to defend your self and your loved ones. As well as friends if need be. In my life I have trained in Self Defense in my methods of martial arts. Here in this series I will be discussing techniques and tactics from what I have learned. As well I will be giving tips and things like philosophies and things of the sort. Here in this first part I am going to discuss some things that I want everyone to know right off of the bat. The first thing that I am going to talk about is the difference between sport and self defense. The first difference between sport and self defense is that when you train for sport you depending on your method you will most likely where some kind of uniform and have some sort of colored belt around your waist. In training in self defense you do not wear belts or uniforms. Training for sport takes months and years to accomplish and get good at. It takes less time to learn how to defend your self. A person can learn to effectively defend them selves in as little as 21 days.There are other differences but these are the main three. Now what I would like to talk about is what training in self defense will do for you, and what it will not do for you. Training in any kind of martial art whether for self defense or for sport will not make you invincible it will only better prepare you for the fight. So when you go into training do not look at training as a way of becoming invincible but as a way to better prepare your self for the fight. Lastly I would like to talk about how you should take this series on self defense. When you read the different sections of this series look at it as an educational or informational guide. Do not look at it as an instructional guide. With that being said I will not be held liable for any injuries that you may sustain in you decide to train with the tactics and techniques of my self defense system.

I have been wanting to learn Aikido. I am a pacifist, but I also believe in the importance of being able to defend ourselves. I like the idea of Aikido because the method seeks to do as little harm to the opponent as possible. It does this by not directly blocking attacks, but rather works with the movement and strength of the attack through a series of joint locks and throws. It sounds very wonderful.
