Do not be fooled by intricate techniques that require both people to be in the right position at the right time. Do not be fooled by the use of pressure points. Do not be fooled by techniques that work in class against fellow students. Do not be fooled by techniques that work in choreographed demonstrations. Do not be fooled by techniques used by highly skilled professionals under competition rules. Ask a police officer who has had to arrest a 100 pound teenage girl strung out on PCP if any of the control techniques worked? Do control in this situation it usually takes, one officer on each arm and leg, and one officer controlling the head, and this is just to control the girl.
For self-defense, you only need to be proficient at few simple, effective techniques that are easy to use under all conditions, and, most importantly—you must be ruthless in their application.
