Duration:   14  mins

In this Session, Alessandro, with the help of a training partner, demonstrates the use and advantage of taking a prepared but non-violent posture when confronted by an aggressor. Such a stance puts the hands in a non-threatening position, ready to act as a shield to fend off a strike. Additionally, many examples of specific pre-contact cues are discussed and demonstrated. By observing an aggressor’s demeanor and subtle physical movements, pre-emptive action can be taken from a non-violent stance, to stop an attack before it escalates.
