If you're looking for belt tests and tournaments, you're in the wrong place. If you're looking for an approach to self defense that's right for you as an individual, read on.
       In a threatening situation, we all want to feel secure that the odds for survival are in our favor. We all want to feel physically stronger and more agile. We all want to feel calm and focused when everybody else around us is losing it.
       In our self defense sessions, we learn through free fighting. Free fighting is as close to a real self defense situation as is possible without severe injury occurring. What works and what doesn't work becomes clear immediately, allowing us to create our own styles of self defense quickly and efficiently.
       Because of the speed and inherent danger of this practice, we must first practice some preparatory exercises. We develop a strong root, or base, so that we will be very difficult to knock down. In addition, being well rooted delivers great amounts of power to strikes and neutralizing maneuvers. We develop the ability to knock a large man down, with no wind-up. Even a small person can develop this ability. When an attacker tries to hit or grab, that attack must be neutralized. We develop the yielding force, a condition of deep relaxation so that the body yields under any strike or grab
       Attacks by two or more people are very common, so we also learn to defend against multiple attackers. In addition, we train with the classic self defense weapons such as sword, stick, and knife, among others. Understanding their use allows us to defend against weapon attacks.
       These practices belong to the tapas family of consciousness exploration and provide powerful tools for dealing with the problem of consciousness.
