SelfDefenseFighting.org is interested in profiling self defense disciplines which prepare people for the brutal realities of true-to-life attacks, arguing that it is necessary to be prepared, despite the unlikeliness of having such a random encounter.
Martial arts are great, but limited, and sometimes even producing dangerous overconfidence. For instance, a Karate guy is worthless in the trapping and grappling range, if not in the punching range. Muay Thai is ineffectual on the ground. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is vulnerable in the kicking and striking ranges. Traditional boxing is limited in trapping range, and endangered from kicking and grappling attacks. All of these disciplines are largely unequipped to handle multiple attackers, or for that matter, any setting or occasion other than a cozy, matted studio.
Max Strong, editor of selfdefensefighting.org, says this: "Unless someone has already initiated an attack or an altercation is imminent and unavoidable, I don't condone fighting. But when you get that dead-eyed stare from the druggie or lifetime criminal, you may have to get down to business - they have made the choice clear for you. Whether the attacker initiates the contest or you are forced to take action first, you MUST be armed with effective self defense fighting technique in order to debilitate the opposition. Yes, debilitate".
SelfDefenseFighting.org is motivated to showcase programs which prepare students for real life scenarios, and not necessarily with complex, year-after-year dojo training. It has to be direct, effective, and necessarily at least as dangerous as the uninhibited attack methods certain to be employed by some aggressors. It seeks to fill the gap that has improperly been plugged by fancy martial arts disciplines, which most people do not have the time or motivation to spend years learning.
Target Focus Training by Tim Larkin has been only program thus far which SelfDefenseFighting.org has discovered, though the search continues.
