Learn reality-based self defense from easy to advanced with Master Joe Varady PhD.

The Art and Science of Self-Defense 2-DVD set provides you with a condensed system of distilled self-defense skills and techniques, each carefully selected for its reliability in a high-stress environment. Topics include situational awareness, avoidance, and how to take action, should you need to physically defend yourself.

Martial arts, combat sports, and self-defense are different realms; although interconnected, they are not entirely the same. This video can help bridge that gap.

This curriculum is streamlined and divided into nine logical stages of training that allow martial artists as well as those with no formal fighting experience to quickly and methodically learn and develop reliable skills for self-defense.

While training in the martial arts or competitive combat sports can aid you in a self-defense situation, it does not prepare you for those aspects that are unique to actual self-defense.

The video begins with the basics, upon which everything else relies—awareness, avoidance, and anticipation skills—before moving on to building a reliable arsenal of self-defense techniques. You will progress through a series of carefully selected actions for high-stress situations. The aim of this curriculum is to improve confidence and skills in a structured and logical way.

Topics include

·      Awareness skills, including situational, spatial, and environmental

·      Avoidance skills to deal with fear, escape, and de-escalation

·      Anticipation skills for being approached, posturing, and reading body language

·      Action arsenal, including targeting, striking, yelling, evading, and countering

·      Advanced arsenals for dealing with ground fighting, weapons, and multiple attackers

Whether you are just starting out or have been practicing martial arts for years, there are important self-defense skills in this video for everyone.
