Having produced personal defense videos for instructional purposes since the early 2000s, Rob Pincus is a big believer in video as an educational medium. He discusses how you can learn self defense training from video and also discusses some aspects of training you need to get hands-on experience with. Concepts can be understood through video as you would from reading a book. You can also learn about physical skills and comprehend how something is done … but that doesn’t mean you can do it. Self defense training skills will develop faster when practiced regularly.
Rob Pincus and Deryck Poole work with a student to develop the ability to train realistically for multiple threats. Too often, students on the range just swing between targets instead of training to break their focus on the first threat and truly assess their environment to find and engage any other threats.
