Self Defence Pressure Points Ebook
Title: Self Defence Pressure Points
WHAT IS SELF-DEFENSE?
A modern definition of self-defense is in order. One way of defining self-defense is to explain what it is not. Personal self-defense is not warfare; it is not vengeance; it is not an art; it is not a sporting event; it is not a movie or television fight scene.
Self-defense is preparation to minimize the possibility of assault. It is training to discover and use appropriate and effective physical actions if there is no practical available alternative.
Self-defense manual is the beginning of a process of learning how to avoid becoming a victim.
Many victims of assault are victims not because they lack the capacity to win fights but because they have been given absolutely no preparation to cope with this special kind of emergency.
The old-fashioned view that self-defense manual is training to reach a high level of fighting skill has the effect of eliminating those individuals who have the greatest need.
It is precisely those people who are unable or unwilling to become fierce fighting machines who benefit from practical self-defense manual to the greatest degree.
Our capabilities ought to bear some relationship to real-life objectives. People learning to defend themselves against assault ought not to be trained as though they were preparing for warfare. The concepts, techniques and methods appropriate for training Samurai warriors are not those appropriate for teaching self-defense as a practical skill for today.
The legal and moral definition of self-defense expressly limits the degree of force to the least which can be used to avert, stop, or escape from an intended assault.
In old-style self-defense, every assault is viewed as a very vicious assault. Real life is different. There are degrees of danger. Assault intentions range from mildly threatening to the intent to do great bodily harm. More important, there are mildly threatening situations which, if handled properly with assertive self-control, can be prevented from escalating into physical violence.
There must be a full range of responses to correspond to the range of possible situations. Otherwise there is only the all-or-nothing response, which is not a choice - it is a dilemma. The person who cannot cope with a mildly threatening hostile act does nothing, or responds to the mild threat as if it were a vicious assault. If the intended victim is passive it encourages the assailant and assaultive action is more likely to occur. Reacting to a mild threat as though it were a vicious assault is inappropriate.
The objective of ethical self-defense manual is to teach appropriate and effective responses. The objective of this ebook is to give information and guidance toward making those appropriate responses.
WHAT ARE NERVE CENTERS & PRESSURE POINTS?
"Nerve centers" and "pressure points" are not scientific descriptions of anatomical entities. They are layman's terms which we use for everyday discussion of this aspect of our subject.
Nerve center is used to describe body areas which are most susceptible to pain sensation on most people because of a concentration of relatively exposed nerves. In this sense the shin is a nerve center. Not all nerves are carriers of impulses experienced as pain, so not all concentrations of nerves produce a nerve center in our terms. The buttocks have a high concentration of nerves, but this area is ordinarily one of the least sensitive.
Pressure point, in this text, indicates an area which is peculiarly vulnerable to injury or incapacitating pain.
An example is the windpipe.
