Learning the right self defense technique is ideal... It's nearly impossible to know when, if ever, you may be attacked, but it’s an awesome feeling to know you’re prepared if you do.
I saw a study one time where they took muggers and rapist from a prison and showed them a video of people walking down a city sidewalk. They asked each of them who they would attack and why.
Overwhelmingly, they said they could tell from the body language of people if they were a good target.
Your body language reads out your unconscious fears.
As you train in the martial arts your confidence soars and your body language follows.
You not only learn a new skill but part of you knows you are stronger and more skilled than the average person.
Like anything in life, the more you practice something your get familiar with it. Practice a little more and you get good with it. Practice a little more and you master it.
