Self-Defense is a Way of Life (WAEP 18)

Self-defense the Hapkido Way

Self-defense is a way of life. Ever since my first day of training, when I was about 17 years old, I knew it would be with me forever. Training with others always is useful, but even when I haven’t had partners, I’ve practiced: mentally and physically. I run drills in my head, solo drills on an open floor, and practice kicks, punches, and blocks.

BUT…I always miss training with other people. It’s difficult to do a lock on yourself. Luckily, my son is willing to begin training with me, again, now that he’s taller than me! Keep me in your thoughts…

Back in August, Charlene Jones and I had a great conversation about martial arts and why I began studying. I mentioned a few tricks, tools, and tips. This is a nice addition to the chat she and I had earlier in 2016. Listening to this interview made me really want to practice a few locks!

Maybe it’ll motivate you, too!
