Self-Defense or Martial Art?

self defense 1

It is pretty much the same thing but it depends on what you are looking for. You want to be like Bruce Lee or you want to be able to escape a dangerous situation? Do you want to be an artist or you want to be a survivor? Do you have years ahead to invest in your training or you want to be able to defend yourself right away?
Bruce Lee was my hero when I was a kid and without a doubt he could do everything from the above and more, but he dedicated his life to mastering Kung-fu and he invested a lot of time until the fight became an art. So any form of martial art or a mix of a few martial arts it is practically Self-Defense.
But not everybody has a background in martial arts, so the question is how can a regular person learn to be safe and get out of dangerous situations? We are living in a violent and unpredictable society where danger is waiting at every corner. Rape, kidnaping, robbery and other forms of crime are holding the head-line of all the news channels. How a woman for example, can escape from criminal hands?
If you search the net you will probably find thousands of advices and hundreds of methods of self-defense all claiming that are better then others. Do your home-work and read, read a lot because the internet is the paradise of scams and false claims. However, one name will stand out, and that because it earned its “fame”. It’s KRAV-MAGA. A self-defense system developed in Israel that involves boxing, Muay Thai, jiu-jitsu, wrestling, and grappling techniques, along with realistic fight training. Krav Maga is known for its focus on real-world situations and extremely efficient and brutal counter-attacks. Krav Maga promotes finishing a fight as quickly as possible. Attacks are aimed at the most vulnerable parts of the body.
Its “the new thing” out there and it takes over the world. The system can be taught to men, women, youth, and elders and most importantly, it is efficient and it can save your life!
