MULTIDISCIPLINARY: I'm happy to see my friend and #BJJ training partner @mikekaram_mma embracing the multidisciplinary lifestyle. We live in a weapons based environment. Violent confrontations such as Robbery, Rape, Kidnapping, Assault and now Active Killers, possibly even Terrorism may require more than physical skill and prowess. Having a fundamental understanding of physical defense is essential. However, those physical skills cannot solve every problem. Defensive weapons such as pepper spray, knives and guns provide us with force multipliers and the ability to traverse a force continuum. From verbal deescalation and boundary setting to empty hand defense to keeping threats at distance with pepper spray and finally having the option to utilize deadly force with an edged weapon or firearm when reasonable and necessary. Preparedness means having the ability to choose a level of force that matches the threat. I support anyone who wants to focus on the sporting or artistic aspects of a martial art, just don't forget the self defense and street applications AND limitations of your art. If "self defense" or "self protection" are a goal then expand your personal outlook on violence and consider a multidisciplinary approach to training and readiness.
