Street Self Defense 101 is designed to demonstrate
effective methods of self-defense against corresponding attacks.
The defenses are simple, yet effective, because when a conflict
arises and it comes time to remember what one should do in the
middle of one, the effects of an adrenaline rush make it difficult
when practiced moves have always been complex and void of any
kind of mental stress.
Also, when the effects of an adrenaline rush are
not taken into account when practicing self-defense, the first
chance that a possible defender may have at avoiding a conflict
Adrenaline not only effects how you fight but
also how you act, and one's actions and behavior are sometimes
what determines whether a fight will ensue.
Passive behavior, which is illustrated by lowered
eyes, nervous feet, and an unsure voice, and aggressive behavior,
illustrated by an angry voice, wide eyes, and raised fists and
often provoking a situation itself, are both attitudes that
should not be adopted when faced with some kind of confrontation
but may materialize, like mistakes in a too-complex defense
tactic, due to the adrenaline rush caused by this dramatic situation.
Assertive behavior, which consists of eye contact,
a steady posture, a strong voice, and hands out front is the
kind that, more than any other, stops fights before they start.
Defense 101 demonstrates assertive behavior and the correct
execution of numerous defenses under the stress of a real situation.
