You Can’t Prepare for Everything
When it comes to being prepared for real life and death struggles on the street or the battlefield you cannot have the false idea that you can be prepared for anything. You can only do your best. Apostille NYC
Maybe I can give you some idea of how to get the odds more in your favor. First let’s look at some forms of preparation which will give you some of the pieces. No one has all of the pieces.
Standard traditional, as well as sport-based martial arts in general, Fight Night Champion PC leave much to be desired when it comes to preparation for bloody chaos. The basic exercises such as forms training and some extended sparring will tone the body and give a person some endurance. It will also make a person more healthy so that they might heal better if wounded or seriously injured. A healthy person will fare better than an unhealthy one in âEUR¨general. But as professor Brad Steiner (President International Combat Martial Arts Federation) says:
“A choice must be made. If a method can be practiced full force in a competitive venue, then obviously it lacks crippling, maiming, and killing skills – all of which, Dubai Web Design Company whether it is popular to say so or not, must be taught and embedded in the student’s psyche and nervous system. If a system is fully combat worthy, then any competition or full contact training in the skills (except against dummies and other insentient training aids) is nothing short of insanity.”
Basic strikes and throws may come in handy if the right amount of luck and proper circumstances occur during a truly frenzied life and death altercation with one or more armed or unarmed serious attackers who are bent on your destruction.
No One Is Invincible
Even the vaunted heroes of the ring can fall to a determined attacker.
Take, for instance, a true champion of ultimate style fighting and cage rage events Lee Murray from England. Here is a superb example of power, technique, and natural ability when it comes to competitive fighting in the ring. Here is a man who has demonstrated real courage on many occasions. Lee Murray showed many times what it takes to be a winner. His punching power and grappling ability have made him a top competitor and world level champion as I see it. C8 Corvette

Recently, according to the London Evening Standard, Lee Murray fell to a knife attack after exiting a famous London night club. As far as I know he was hospitalized and put into a drug induced coma to allow the surgeons to better deal with his life threatening injuries.
I do not know all of the details of the altercation and can only say that anything can happen in the street. Even a man in his class cannot be prepared for everything.
I pray for his full recovery.
Even a highly trained Israeli soldier, who is a personal friend, who has had extensive training in various Israeli military hand to hand fighting styles who also has real experience in battle can fall in the street to a vicious attack from a few young teens. These young teens were no innocents. They were involved in drug activity in Tel Aviv and my friend crossed their path at the wrong time. He was stabbed 19 times before help arrived. Luckily for him the help came in seconds in the form of a cab driver who was trained and had experience decades earlier in real life and death fights. Along with the cab driver some members of the crowd outside of the night club stepped in to help.
He is now back on full duty. He has a new world view when it comes to who is the enemy and where violence can occur. He also knows that even years of training in “realistic” scenario fighting did not prepare him for the proverbial wolf in sheep’s clothing situation.
Is there anything that will prepare one for all situations? NO. You can only do the best that you can.
What CAN You Do?
Above I showed that traditional martial arts training alone is not the answer. I even showed how a ring fighting champion and even a battle hardened warrior could fall to bad circumstances.
I could also enumerate many successful situations where a trained fighter prevailed in a life and death altercation.
The winners had some things in common.
One was that they were aware of their situation before it came down. Even seconds of preparation will often avail a highly trained combat oriented fighter.
These are the problems. The answers are too lengthy to address in this one article but will be addressed in two subsequent articles “Getting Your Mind Right” Parts 1 and 2 by my student Ari Kandel, 3rd degree.
