I am not aware that a topic has been started in regards to de-escalation and the psychology of violence, so I thought I'd start it here.
The question is this; what do you do, or rather, what do you think are good drills to train and teach de-escalation and to prepare psychologically for violent confrontations? I think the old "What you lookin' at, bitch?" or "Why you lookin' at mah girlfriend?!" as set ups gets a little old, redundant, and don't reflect the true dynamics of violent confrontations.
Also, what are good drills to manage adrenaline dump and other associated feelings? What about incorporating the symptoms of tunnel vision? How about countering freeze-ups and the likes? I feel these drills are absolutely necessary for any self defense curriculum.
