*The majority of police officers who are shot are done so with their own weapons.
People flock to Karate and Kung Fu schools to learn self-defense. Lacking adrenal stress conditioning skills, instructors taught the same old traditional methods that we learned from our instructors. Much of this was useless in real situations. I personally struggled with this for years, training in classic Martial Arts while at night I would experience real fights where my Martial skills helped very little. Yet to be fair we had no other paradigm to work from until the fairly recent advent of Adrenal Stress Response Training.
Yet even against all these odds, fighting back was often successful. The vast majority of attackers are frightened dis-empowered individuals looking for a sense of control or power in their lives. They prey on the weak and frail and do not want or expect a fight. When the alleged ?victim? does not respond accordingly, most assailants will back off. Now with the technology of adrenal stress training, such success stories abound.
Are there times when a victim should choose not to fight back? Not many but sometimes Yes. When the alleged victim feels that they have a better chance of surviving if they acquiesce than if they do not. These cases are rare. Such a case may be an armed gang attack where the odds of successful defense are almost impossible. Or perhaps to save a child or another loved one. But the operative word is that the person should ?choose? to submit, or ?choose? to fight back.
No matter what the end result, Adrenal Stress Response Training arms a person with many new choices and the power to act on those choices. And even if they choose to cooperate, their mental and emotional states are better than if they were simply victims. For when someone chooses either to submit or to resist, they are operating from a place of power.
