Defense is for suckers. There is a reason that our organization is called Fit Fo Fight not fit to defend. Defense is hard. That's just the way it is. If someone is intent on doing violence to you and they are purposeful and aggressive, it's very difficult to defend against that person. It doesn't matter how much training you have. It's just plain out hard. So in order for me to really win I have to fight. Even if your really good at defense, sooner or later you have to hit somebody and you have to hit them harder and more often than they hit you, the defense doesn't do that. If I'm gonna make somebody quit, either because they don't have the heart to continue or they don't have the consciousness to continue I have to fight them, I can't defend against them. So if instructors out there are basing a system on defense, on defending against violence, they are doing it wrong. I have to be better at violence than the guy that's coming to harm me. I'm not a huge fan of the term self-defense. I prefer self-protection, to me, it's more proactive and defense is more reactive. I prefer to be proactive and control as many variables as I can. If something looks sketchy I'm out, if violence is imminent I am hitting first. Defense is I'm already being choked or tackled. You could be a world-class jiu-jitsu player but if you hit your head on the way to the ground and get knocked out it doesn't matter how good your jiu-jitsu is. So being able to take the fight to somebody if where our emphasis is at all of our centers around the world in Baton Rouge, Prairieville, Charlette, etc.
