0302 - Training and Practice Dangers We Ignore

In my opinion in the self-defense training industry we focus on the "glamorous" dangers to the exclusion of many of the more likely risks we face in our environment. Don't get me wrong, we need to talk about the reality that things can go wrong in self-defense training. Let's face it, any time we train with guns, the risk is there that someone could get shot. There is no way to bring the risk to 0. When we train with unarmed skills it is completely possible that some one could get their bell rung. Yes we should take precautions to try and prevent these situations, but in my opinion the trainers and trainees can't stop there.
