Decision Making: Violence and Control

A person that is comfortable utilizing violence is effective.

In self defense, this ability is especially important.

However…

If violence and aggression control our decision making, we are often exposed to making mistakes.

If we are in control of when and how we choose to use violence and aggression, we put ourselves in a strong position to defend what we love.

Breath and awareness = creating space between stimulus and response = controlling emotions = controlling decision making = controlling our use of violence.

In my experience, the psychological and emotional training is hugely under utilized in our industry.

If you ignore this area, we cut off the students potential.

Clouded judgement often leads to poor decisions.

In the world of self defense, the long term effects of poor decisions can be devastating.

Go forth and be awesome.
