Mastering the Art of Fighting Without Fighting

Selfdefence Confidence and Empowerment
Kali Sikaran for Selfdefence

In a world that sometimes feels like it's on the brink of chaos it can sometimes feel like everything has to be a conflict and a fight. And many times when people think about the martial arts and self-defence it's only about the actual fight and the violence. Especially in the movies, the victimized star goes to the gym and that's a fight right away that later on solves the big fight that's solved with more violence.

And it is an unsecure world out there so it's definitely an important knowledge to master these days, for sure. But it's a lot more to this equation then just the technical solution as the tactics.

What you need to learn as well is the situational understanding. There's a before, during and after in every situation and the biggest opportunity to deescalate and avoid violence is in the before stage. That should also be part of any serious self-defence training.

If it's unavoidable to prevent the conflict in the before stage, then "The Shit Hit's The Fan" and there are other priorities that might sound to simplistic but are totally key, The priorities here are:

  1. Don't get hit

  2. Don't get stuck

  3. Stay on your feet

If you get hit you might get knocked out or set back in other ways, this is not a sport where you can trade punches for points. If you get stuck in a corner or sitting down you will be very limited in avoiding and not getting hit. Same thing if you fall and end up on the ground things will be so much more difficult and demand a lot more skills from the defender.

All of these things can be learnt but you have to understand that it takes time and experience. But the proactive awareness where you avoid the situation in the before stage takes less time to learn and utilize. That's one of the reason why we do a lot of those drills as warmup early on in the Kali Sikaran classes.

In the Kali Sikaran Programs we practice all of these aspects but we also educate the practitioners what can be practical early on and what will need more time and experience to make it functional.

Most important of it all is that we prepare ourselves to deal with conflicts and violence but our main goal is to enjoy everyday life, learn useful strategies and hopefully avoid getting involved in trouble.

Thank you Kali Sikaran Kungsbacka for this video.
