Self defense is a lot easier than you think! Sadly the movie industry has made martial arts something of a joke when it comes to self defense. There are so many things being taught which quite honestly don't work. In real life you only have one chance, and it must be quick. High kicking is a myth. The shin area for kicking, the metatarsals (the bones at the front of the foot) for stamping, and the groin area should be your targets. Another myth is the use of the fists. They are not the weapons to use, and are easily injured, which is why boxers have their hands taped and use gloves.
The weapons to use are the heel of the hand, the karate chop which uses that fleshy part of the hand close to the wrist, etc., but definitely never the fist. The knuckles were not designed for punching and can be easily damaged. Definitely not the preferred weapon!
Self defense is 90% awareness and 10% physical response. Trust your gut feelings and watch the body language of those around you or who are coming towards you. If you become suspicious of anything or anybody, make sure you get out of the way. This is the first thing you will learn with the Self Defense Company program.
The Self Defense Company provides practical and realistic personal protection solutions through live and online tactical training. Founded in 2007 by lifelong martial artist, coach, bodyguard and defensive tactics instructor Damian Ross with the motto “You don’t need a black belt”, The Self Defense Company provides its members essential self defense skills through the cornerstone program The Self Defense Training System (SDTS).
The Self Defense Company Training System (SDTS) is based on over a century of research and development of modern warfare conducted by the British and United States military and law enforcement beginning in China and Japan in the early 1900’s and reaching its peak during World War 2, Korea and Vietnam when close quarter combat was a part of warfare, espionage and civilian resistance.
The Self Defense Company and its instructors provide this elite training through on demand video course programs and live instruction you can see over and over again, both online and in person.

Martial arts aren't designed to teach you self-defense as such. You learn a style of fighting, in the comfort of your own home, that's based on sport and ceremony which is tactically inefficient when it comes to self-defense.
For example, as a complete novice, if you were to start any form of martial arts today, lessons would possibly start with some postures and protocols, maybe sparring, most certainly some warm-up exercises, maybe an introduction to traditional weapons. Then you would be introduced to 'kata', which in Japanese means forms, or choreographed series of movements as a means of memorizing movements used in a variety of techniques.
You may be taught self defense counters which they call 'self defense'. What you learn has very little functional
street significance. Learning to deal with confrontations in this way may be effective in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, but in the street, a great deal will probably go wrong, and almost all of it can be easily averted, which goes to show that martial arts is not the best choice for protecting yourself and your loved ones.
