I dont often open new threads but I feel this may be the best place to ask this.
In your opinions, what would you list as the fundamental skills of self protection, as seen in the martial arts? I don't want to give examples just yet for fear of influencing the answers but, I'm looking at this in terms of trainable skillsets more than say techniques or "punching and kicking fast".
I have been reviewing my own syllabus lately and making edits and kind of wanted to pull back and look at the big picture again. I think it may help to hear some ideas from practical karateka outside of my little group. Anything you can add is appreciated.
