Martial Arts for Self-Defense

Yes, it is good to know how to defend yourselves but most instructors will tell you that there is no winner when it comes to standing toe to toe with an assailant and trying to beat them. The best self defence strategy is to always escape as fast as possible and run away. What martial arts will do, is help teach you how to escape, how to break a grip, possibly disable the assailant and then get out of there! One of the key factors to your escape is confidence in the knowledge that you CAN escape.
