If I want to learn self-defense then I need to train self-defense. That include the non-physical side of it as well. . Police don't just learn how to shoot, they learn other non fighting /shooting skills that help manage a situation and increased their ability to stay safe. I think self-defense is the same way. It can't just be limited to fighting because then the person is just going to fall back on fighting when safer options are available. These statements are in line with your comment below.
Yes but not in the manner that the statement comes across.
Being well rounded does not mean you have to learn water safety in martial arts school.
You go to the people who have the capacity to teach those skills.
And absolutely one of those areas where you assume they don't untill evidence shows otherwise.
