Learn to defend myself.

I’ve trained different forms of fighting and self defense arts since I was twelve years old. Most of my training was in Kenpo, which I attained a black belt in. During college I tried some Capoiera and Ju Jitsu and more recently I’ve been training an art called Vee-Arnis-Jitsu.

I’m not invincible and there are probably a ton of situations that if I got into, I would be in some serious trouble. However, for the most part, I’m comfortable with my ability to defend myself against the average attack. Whatever that is.

The more comfortable I become with my ability to defend myself, the easier it is to walk away from confrontation. I see fighting as a product of fear and insecurity. Today I train only to defend myself against an unwanted and unwarranted attack.

Hopefully I never need to defend myself, but in an uncertain world, knowing how at least makes me feel a little better.

I guess it’s kinda like wearing a helmet 😉
