Mental Conditioning for Self-Defense

Posted: February 11, 2021

One of the least treated, and probably among the most fundamental, aspects of self-defense training is mental preparation for the high stress involved in undergoing an aggressive situation. At the Academy of CKD, we believe that, for the best chance of staying safe in an act of aggression, our students should train not only to prepare physically for self-defense, but mentally and emotionally as well. To do so, it is very important to understand that self-defense situations that threaten our safety are very stressful and this causes our body to have instantaneous and instinctive responses. An awareness of how the body reacts may save your life!
