I ticked all apart from the special techniques. if you have good communication/diplomatic skills, are fit and strong and able to keep your mind working in a bad situation, then it doesnt matter if you have been learning eye gouges or a stiff left cross, whatever you have trained with resistance will work for you- no such thing as a 'magic' technique IMO

More than 25 years martial arts experience has convinced me what you call "pressure training" is THE key to martial arts effectiveness. Most martial arts have a decent number of strong techniques and tactics. But unless one regularly trains under realistic conditions. none of it means anything.






BINGO!






and a bit of dirty fighting like an eyegouge never goes amiss either.

I chose mental/emotional control and avoidance. Just yesterday I ran into someone who was totally out of control angry. Yes, I could have smacked him around, but I didn't have to; my reaction was not returned anger but amazement at how he blew up over nothing, and pity. His life must be a living hell for him to be carrying that rage around.

I chose the bottom three
the actual techniques used is irrelevant, and anyone regardless of there attributes can defend themselves

by far from my experience and research, the mental and emotion aspect is probably the most influential in surviving a physical attack, the avoidance and de-escalation skills will enable you to control the lead up to and the prevention of physical violence and the pressure test enables you to figure out what works for you plus provides some helpful familiarity with performing under stress.

Awareness should be included as well, as it is the fundamental element (the cornerstone) of self protection, awareness alone can stop you being chosen in the first place and provides you with a knowledge of what's happening

Thats My thoughts anyway
