I boxed as an amateur, and wrestled in college, but never got into competitive martial arts. Now that I'm older and less capable physically, I've really come to more fully appreciate Tim Larkin's Target Focus Training as a great source of practical self-defense guidance that starts from the vantage point of “avoid avoidable conflicts”! While I fully support other tools in a personal self-defense arsenal that allow you to project force at distance, the ugly truth is many unavoidable conflicts are going to start with what you already have in your hands at the onset of an attack against you. As Tim frequently reminds people, whomever gets the first injury in on an opponent is most often going to be the one with the greatest likelihood of surviving the initial attack/encounter.
