Training Tip of the Week: Retraction Theory

It is important that you train to retract your strikes back to point of origin as fast as you executed the strike. One punch or strike may not stop the assault or finish the fight. You must dominate your assailant!

It's not how fast you can hit your assailant, but how fast you can hit him AGAIN!!!

Self Defense Against a Knife Attack

In today's world (and most of yesterday's) it seems that everyone is carrying a knife of one sort or another. It is important to be able to protect yourself against a bladed assault at anytime and from any direction. The Bojuka Self Defense System offers some "simple" and effective ways to protect yourself against an armed assailant. The video below is just one example of how to deal with this sort of life threatening situation. Please use caution when training and remember that training by video cannot replace one on one instruction with an expert instructor.

For instruction in the Bojuka Self Defense System please visit the links at the side of this blog.
