The difference between Martial Arts and Self Defense

John Savan: “Self-defense is often confused with martial arts. This confusion often puts people off because they think that it will take years of training and a lot of money before they can kick like Bruce Lee or throw people around like Steven Segal. In fact, self-defense is a pared down version of martial arts: simpler and much practical.”

“Self-defense is for use in real life situations, where there are no rules; martial arts, on the other hand, are for demonstration or competition under a framework of rules and regulations. Self-defense is actually a catchall term that covers any action a victim consciously or unconsciously takes to survive an attack.”

“When in real danger, go for the eyes and the groin.”
