0112 - Unarmed Self-Defense Tools: Your Hands

I have been studying unarmed self-defense for a lot of years. I began as a student with Ian Kinder of Live Safe Academy where I gained an understanding as a student.

Today as we begin an extended look at unarmed combat, we examine the principles that help to direct me as an instructor.
