The Edged Weapon Defense seminar I attended a few days ago was headed by a man named Erwin Ballarta. Erwin spent many years as the head of Texas DPS’s Defensive Tactics. When he retired from DPS, a Recruit Cadet made a tribute video:
Pretty cool. 🙂
There’s one quote/voiceover in there that is a great adage for self-defense:
Move and stun, stun and move.
It’s simple. In a self-defense situation, you have to keep moving. Moving, attacking/defending, moving.
Another good quote?
Don’t give up.
