Situational awareness probably got more folk out of a bad thing than anything else.
Don't be there when it happens.
Recognise that something bad's happening, or about to & just go away from it.
Lot's to be known just right there & often way overlooked.
Took a few years of sho-ta-kan.
A bare-bones Japanese karate. When you block it, you break it. Hit it, break it. Works better for a more beefy body style than I have, but still .... no loss in knowing.
Never saw anything worthwhile in anything "high-kick & flowery."
Looks good on TV.
Solid Judo background & any decent hard-style works.
Better to see, know & leave.
