We’ve spent six weeks looking at the different aspects of both armed and unarmed self defense. Now I’d like to come full circle and write a little bit about fitness.
You might be wondering what fitness has to do with self defense. A lot actually. Your fitness level sets the upper limit of what you can do, and how long you can keep doing it.
If you are sedentary and out of shape, your reaction time is going to be much slower, and your ability to effectively mount a defense is severely compromised.
Three Steps To Making Change
Posted: March 16, 2016
I can’t think of many things left on their own, that automatically get better. Usually it takes being intentional about things if you want to make positive changes.
Even when you let your body fight off a cold or flu virus by itself, there are some very intentional things going on. Antibodies are produced, and white blood cells attack the invading armies. If your system is strong enough, it will prevail. If it’s not, then you’ll have problems.
Many of life’s struggles begin like a virus. They start small and seem innocuous. But let them get a foothold and they can end up overwhelming you. Simple thoughts can turn into small compromises, which in turn open the door to much bigger problems.
