    What questions do you have about Self Defense?

    What questions do you have about self defense?  What topics do you think should be discussed more?    What situations, techniques, or ideas would you like to be informed about? (Situations don't have to directly apply to you, but could apply to a friend or loved one)


    I'm a third degree black belt in Taekwondo.  I hold rank in several arts and have extensive self-defense training that I want to share.  (I tell you this not to brag, but to explain why I ask.  I apologize if I come off as cocky!)

    A series of hubs on specific techniques as opposed to one hub highlighting several different ones could be really useful to the average person, especially coming from an authority on the topic.

      I definitely can do that!  Thanks for the feedback!

    I'm a 9th degree black belt grandmaster in Jidokwan Taekwondo, Judo, Hapkido, Jujutsu, and Combat Self Defense. I'd like to see more information written and/or recorded on audio and video across the country on self defense for the deaf, blind, the otherwise physically challenged, and amputees; and for senior citizens, especially seniors who must use walkers and mobility scooters.

      That's a brilliant idea!  I wonder if I were to post a question if I would find members of the deaf community or sr citizens that would be willing to discuss special challenges they face and be willing to brainstorm modifications that address them?

      That's a good place to start. Also, check to see if your community has a school for the deaf or blind and senior recreation centers that have members and their families who would speak with you.

      Great idea! My first instructor's sister and brother-in-law are deaf.  I'm still in contact with their adult children.  I'll see if I can get any ideas there as well.  Thanks!

      Fantastic! This should be a good series of writings.

    Whenever I learn about fight moves they're always very brutal and sometimes lethal. I'd like more moves that are just for getting away, not causing serious harm.
