The blog is here to provide you with an easy to navigate, comprehensive resource on functional self defense.

Real self defense may not be what you think it is. It’s not what’s taught in most martial art schools, or what you see in the movies. Real, comprehensive self defense skills require an understanding of violence, awareness, and prevention, effective techniques, a variety of training methods, and a solid strategy for both unarmed and armed attacks. The majority of martial arts and self defense courses focus on only one or two of those areas, and often unrealistically.

This blog offers a comprehensive combination of strategies, training methods, and techniques designed to provide practitioners with highly efficient and effective self defense skills. It covers all ranges (stand up, clinch, and ground) and areas of self defense, from awareness and non-physical prevention to the use of weapons and multiple opponents. It was created by Armanda Salazar, after many years of researching, training, experimenting, and teaching. You may reach Amanda at http://armandosainz.com/contact-us.
