I thought I just expressed how the concept of winning fits into my view of self-defense training. In competition, I have no real consequence to losing, unless I put myself into a competition where I could seriously expect to get injured in a loss (which is anathema to my views on self-protection). So, in a BJJ competition, for instance, I'd be trying to win, but would have no real concern if I lose. I'd be doing it for the fun of competition, like when I played sports. When I am working on self-defense, I have a different view of the outcome.
So as an example of mindset training. We have a 15 minute gauntlet drill where we quit simply torture the guy. At the end of that 15 minutes he has to escape from mount. Now that drill does not end untill he is standing. Simple as that. He can leave untill he has succeeded in his objective.
the mother of all drills.
