    Ways to escape without fighting?

    this was meant to be taken in jest.. (perhaps I should have included a smiley face or something). the point you should have focused on is ie, the term self defense in FASD covers 'much more than fighting'. This is explained on the homepage.

    Basic Footwork

    ahh, this is what I mean. I guess just because my front foot is the one that leaves the ground first I counted it as thats the one that moves first.. but in fact the muscles in my rear leg are activating before my lead.

    Ways to escape without fighting?

    Hi Chris, You said it a few times and Ive just been ignoring it but advice of 'just stop' is the worst advice I have ever heard. I hope you don't teach you students that. .

    But i have been seeking the audience of this forum... ? Anyway, not important.. I did how-ever come to this realisation this morning.. The problem is that since FASD Fight Training is not a martial art, the place I thought it would fit was in self defense. Clearly it is not. What it actually...

    Ways to escape without fighting?

    Correct. I think it is best to get information from a number of sources. If the information is the same then good. "Whereabouts are you (I seriously doubt "Vagabond" as a location...)?" Also correct. Vagabond is not a location. It is a reference that I constantly move about. If you want...

    Hi all, I request your input. I have a system that I use to train myself (and others) in 'self defense'. It is made up of gathered knowledge from an abundance of sources, and some of it I made up. It has been compiled it in the form of a training manual. I KNOW IT IS FLAWED. I also...
