It Depends, If You’re Ryan Hoover

The Self-Initiative Project, Podcast 21, It Depends, If You're Ryan Hoover

Ryan Hoover, of Fit to Fight, and I talk about ideologies that go beyond simple slogans and taglines and discuss aspects of self-defense generally in context of Krav Maga.

We talk about the realities of learning self-defense and that it is really about learning how to fight. Hear what is generally wrong with a lot of self-defense training today, and why "it depends..." might be one of the most hated responses from a self-defense or fighting coach. And we talk about why you have got to get uncomfortable to really make any progress.

Ryan and I talk about some of the fallacies of learning self-defense including why it's usually not a stranger women have to contend with or how gun and knife defense may not be accurately portrayed and what's right and wrong with teaching those topics today.

This is one, if you are taking responsibility for your own personal safety, you need to listen to, especially if you want an honest look at what you should expect.

Sit back. Relax. And listen.
