kangal_defensive_systems In the spate of all the rapes currently happening in our country, and especially in and around our city, we've made a fundamental shift in how we'll be approaching Rape Defense Courses from here on forward: They will exist out of improvised edged and pointed weapon tactics. At some stage we need to say enough is enough. And a good understanding and use of such a weapon is a tremendous equalizer. We place a large emphasis on when you can legally use such a weapon in our training facilities. And at the rate at which rapes are also turning in life threatening situations and murders maybe it's time to start thinking differently about things? 🏻 ====================================== #knifeporn #knifecommunity #edgedweapons #sharpobjects #knifecombat #knifefight #selfdefense #kangalmaul #maul #survival #survivalgear #armedanddangerous #rapedefense #stoprape #fightback 1w

dave_and_dheana What happens when a 6'3" 249 lb man gets an accidental finger in his eye (a pinky at that!)? The fight stops that's what happens!
Really......, honestly....., take a look! Now just imagine the difference when that finger is delivered not accidentally, but with SERIOUS intention!

dave_and_dheana Complaining about a problem is EASY. Actually DOING something to affect positive change requires EFFORT! It's true, the world is FULL of injustices and it's easy to get just mad and bitch. But bitching only makes problems stronger. It doesn't make anything better. Instead let's focus on what we APPRECIATE about life and what we can do to IMPROVE the things we see as problems. Keeping your mind focused SOLUTIONS not only adds power where it's needed but it makes us FEEL BETTER in the process! #winwin

dave_and_dheana A beautiful mind goes with everything. We're certainly not against outside beauty. In fact, we don't think appreciating the human form is any different that appreciating a beautiful sunset or a blooming flower. I think some people, in an effort to balance out all of the objectification out there, lean in the opposite direction, pushing against thinks like make up and shaving. And that's fine. But we strive for a middle ground. We find pushing against anything is wasted effort and changes little. As long as we keep in mind, looks are just ONE aspect of a person, we don't see a problem appreciating them. Just like appreciating a hot brain!

dave_and_dheana Tuesday morning #truthbomb
No one can make you feel inferior...or stupid, or ugly, or unwanted, or ANYTHING without your consent. Yes, people can be unkind, but bad words only make you FEEL bad if something inside of you agrees with them (same goes for compliments). The upside to taking this kind of responsibility for ourselves is the opportunity to see where where we can grow and heal. Happiness is an inside job. But don't worry, it's one you're totally qualified for.

dave_and_dheana You may not WANT to, but if you're ever FORCED to, could you harm another person to save your own life or stop an attack? It's an important question we talked about in last night's scope. If you missed it, you can catch the replay on the periscope app for the next 8 hrs or by clicking the link on our bio. 4mon

dave_and_dheana It's the eve of #NYE2016...Anyone making #NewYears #resolutions?
I know they're a bit of an artificial construct but I always like the opportunity to try to do better.
One thing we're working on is making more time for YOU! And to get that ball rolling, we're working on something new and exciting. Details coming soon!

selfpreservationtraining Human predators often behave the way predators in the wild behave. They will look for the smaller, weaker person as their intended victim. For the average female, even with martial arts training, the disparity in size & strength between them & a male attacker can be more than they are able to overcome. Even more so when he uses a weapon. Self-Preservation Training will prepare you to defend yourself against predators that view you as smaller, weaker prey. If you already have training, we will fill in the gaps your previous training left. If you have zero training, we will provide you with the training that fits YOU, regardless of your size or age. We teach private & small group classes. For those located in the Indianapolis area, we can bring the training to you if needed. To register for a class or for more information, contact Jeff Riley at selfpreservationtraining@gmail.com . Or you can contact me through the Facebook link in my bio, or DM me on Instagram. #selfdefense #kali #mma #dontbeavictim #fightback #gunskills #knifetraining #martialarts #muaythai #bjj #womensselfdefense #nofear #preytopredator #karate #boxing #tkd #rapedefense #jkd #confidence #notavictim #combatives #privatetraining #firearmstraining #selfpreservation #protectyourself #sexualassaultawareness #domesticviolence #staybladed #selfpreservationtraining 5mon

dave_and_dheana I get a "Note from the Universe" in my inbox every day from @mikedooleytut and today's was SOOOO good i just HAD to share. You eat to nourish your body. You sleep to rejuvenate your spirit. You study, work, and apply yourself for emotional gains. You exercise to tighten your muscles. You listen to music to entertain yourself.
You're not at all adverse to investing time and energy for the rewards you seek. So how about you spare just a few minutes every day to visualize the life of your dreams? Because nothing else you could ever do will make such a profound difference in your fortunes and misfortunes as working with your thoughts and beliefs.
You can start now,
The Universe
PS... this is post 888, how cool is that?

dave_and_dheana Hey everyone, wanted to catch you up on our last Periscope on our #1 (surprising) Rule of Smart Self Defense... No Hitting your attacker!
To be clear, what we mean by "hitting" is PUNCHING, PALM HEELS, HAMMER FISTS and KNEES, which almost ALL other self defense organizations teach.
These strikes are fighting like a man. They require SIZE, STRENGTH and POWER, all of which your attacker most likely has more of than you! They also require proper ALIGNMENT and lots of PRACTICE to do properly. PLUS, when you hit and pull back to hit again, you give your attacker SPACE, which means he can now retaliate! Don't give him that chance! Once your hands are ON him, KEEP THEM THERE! And get your fingers into his EYES or THROAT so you can stop the attack!

dave_and_dheana There are at least 3 problems with this photo. Can you spot them?
~~~~
I never wanted to call anyone out before but this HAS to stop. If a girl takes the initiative to learn self defense, she shouldn't be taught BS like this! Don't be a victim of stupid self defense!
~~~~
Answers:
1) Girls should not be taught to punch for self defense. Fighting a man's fight, men will always have the upper hand in size, strength and aggression.
2) Attackers primary targets (eyes and throat) are covered up
3) Attacker is so padded up he can't move and falls at the slightest touch

  •   daniellealmonacid Honest question: what is wrong about picture and how is this particular class BS? Just wanted to know! 4mon
  •   dave_and_dheana Hey @daniellealmonacid Sorry abt that. The first thing is being taught to punch. That's fighting a man's fight, where men will always have the upper hand in size, strength and aggression. Not to mention the body mechanics and alignment necessary to do it properly. We focus on the eyes and throat, where size and strength don't matter. In this pic the padded attacker's eyes and throat are covered. It's also the static pose, which is of course for the photo, but a lot of these classes are taught the same way, with big padded dudes coming at you in slow motion and falling down with the slightest touch 4mon
  •   dave_and_dheana @daniellealmonacid .... Didn't mean to "send" that yet...I wonder, have you taken a class like this? Or do you teach a class like this? We know we're going to piss a lot of ppl off exposing what's wrong with what's being taught out there. But it's widespread and dangerous bc these girls are leaving these classes thinking they can punch or hammer fist or knee their way out of an attack. But if the instructors were really being honest, they'd have to admit, it's unlikely a girl is going to hurt her attacker with one of these techniques enough to force him to let go. And that's what it's all about. One more thing.... 4mon
  •   dave_and_dheana @daniellealmonacid ... For the longest time I didn't want to be calling out these problems NC I thought, "at least they're trying, at least they CARE...." But here's the thing. The single biggest obstacle is getting a girl to WANT to learn self defense. For most girls it's a huge hurdle. The girls in these classes have overcome that hurdle. Good for them! But then they're being taught this stuff that has such a LOW probability of working! And walking out with this false sense of security. I know that was a long answer, but does that make sense? 4mon

dave_and_dheana 2nd Way We're Redefining Women's Self Defense... We focus on what we WANT not on what we DON'T want. Big difference because there's so much more power in promotion. You can't fight the Law of Attraction!
