Self-Defense: Don’t Use Extreme Techniques When It’s Not Necessary

As a companion to the previous video posted (Panantukan: Chopping Forearm & Hammers), here is a quick note I often make when I show some techniques that can be quite devastating when used on someone.

Remember that as a sane Instructor you should explain that as a Martial Artist you should incorporate a palette of various techniques but you should be able to choose wisely the ones that are necessary for any given situation. Don’t just pull it off because you are trained to do so. Pull it off because it’s necessary. Be a hero, not an asshole.
