Understanding real violence and conflict management involves a 3 dimensional approach. We integrate psychological, emotional and bio-mechanical components to design and inspire training. Unwittingly, most of us train in a one-dimensional arena, a model which always involves consent, awareness, rules and safety measures.
However, real fights rarely include these elements! And real predators are experts at minimizing and manipulating these elements and suppressing survival signals. This is the greatest paradox of modern self-defence training and one of the reasons ‘experts’ misunderstand Coach Blauer's research.
