What Is Reality Based Self-Defense?

Reality Based Self-Defense is a broad definition covering the different concepts, tactics, and techniques that are simple enough to learn in a short period of time, require little to no strength or athleticism, and have a high probability of success in a real world self-defenses scenario.

Here is an interview that I did with a local media channel awhile back explaining a bit more about what that means…

Everything that I teach is based off of gross motor skills, which exponentially increases the likelihood that you will survive a violent encounter.

We also teach the concept of “attacking the attacker”, which effectively flips roles and allows you to become the attacker, not the defender, in a physically violent situation.

These basic concepts that I have taught for more than 20 years are the basis for why I believe that reality based self-defense such as Krav Maga (I’m a Certified Level 2 Krav Maga Instructor) is the absolute best martial arts for street fighting that is currently out there on the market today.

If you are looking for something very similar to what I teach in person in an online course, here is one I highly recommend.

About the Author: CHRIS FRIESEN

I am a gym owner, personal trainer, reality based self-defense instructor (Certified Level 2 Krav Maga), and passionate bushwacker, survivalist and prepper. I've been living on my homestead that sits on 60 lovely wooded acres out in the country in rural Canada for the last 23 years with my wife and 3 kids. I spend much of my time gardening, raising chickens and other livestock, hunting, and honing my bushcraft skills. When I’m not working on one of my many projects (which include trying to decipher current world events) I enjoy relaxing in my hottub with a glass of good bourbon. I hope you enjoy my prepping website, and get some valuable information from it.
