That is why we need the fighting algorithms of personal safety technique.
Such algorithms are the basic set of motor skills natural for the body, which will allow you to react correctly to any situation at a counter-instinctive (i.e. efficient) level.
In other words, from a thousand possible moves that are generally performable for our body (thanks to 244 degrees of freedom of osteoarticular system of a human body) one should choose a number of the most useful, universal, applicable to any environment (cold or warm, sandy or icy, restricted, standing or prone etc.), do not require any physical qualification (one can be ill or injured) and are easy enough to master.
Being able to use such algorithms you shorten the time necessary to get the skills for the right behavior and effective motor activity by a dozen or even a hundred.
It is the understanding of necessity of the algorithms for the forming of effective more skills and abandoning ineffective motor and behavioral stereotypes that is one of the basic concepts of the Kadochnikov system, which is essentially different from its counterparts.
It is based not on the brutal physical force, but on the clever and cunning interaction with the opponent.
Mind you, they can be much bigger and stronger than you are, or may exceed in numbers.
Even if you spend years training the classic techniques of lunging and striking,
The brain on the sight of a life-threatening situation cuts the scale and the volume of information it has to process.
This is the reason why most of us in such a case get too excited.
After crossing a certain line, our system shuts too many information channels making us helpless. When the heart rate is above 145 beats per minute, some serious problems with body control arise.
Complex motor abilities are no longer at their full capability.
It should be mentioned that the range at which we can function effectively is in between 115-145 beats per minute. The upper line of 140-145 is only suitable for trained people.
For others the range is 120-130 beats per minute.
Yet we’ve mentioned, that at a stressful situation the heart rate soars to 180 beats per minute and above. What happens to our system then?
At 175 beats per minute, the processing of information is shut down.
The forebrain is blocked, while the midbrain – the part that is identical to the brain of animals (that is present in any mammal) activates and hijacks the functions of the forebrain.
Visuals are the minimum.
In such a state the bowels are often emptied – at such an extreme level of danger our system doesn’t think such physical control necessary for survival.
In a state like this the objective of the body is different: the blood rushes from the external muscles and flows to the internal ones.
Our system is evolutionary predisposed to this reaction – it is aimed at turning the muscles into some kind of an armor to cut down the blood loss in case of a wound. However, it makes us practically helpless and transfixed in the process.
In the USA, for instance, people are advised to rehearse dialing 911, as there’ve been a lot of cases when in an extreme situation people were holding the receiver unable to perform this simple action – press three buttons.
I assume you’ve understood what kind of situations you have to be prepared for. It isn’t reasonable to believe that the skills acquired at a sports club can be applied in a real extreme situation. Moreover it is even criminal at least to yourself.
The duration of the presentation does not allow for the description of life examples, where even those with amazing sports training were helpless in life-threatening situations. Yet such cases are numerous, and if you want to you can always find them by yourself.
Among them is a story of a famous fighter Ivan Poddubny, who fell victim to a street robbery, and a story of one of the founders of modern karate Masutatsu Oyama, who was mugged by black thugs in USA (he described it in his autobiography) and a lot of other similar cases.
Probably you or your acquaintances also have a story to add to the list.
The SECOND important difference is the rules.
However rigid the rules of the tournament are, they exist even in ultimate fighting. Even there it is not allowed to push out eyes, crush joints or kick in the crotch. Yet these are the actions that are taken in a real fight in the first place.
Sports are to be spectacular and entertaining, real fight – effective. So the objective differs.
As the objectives are different, the training must be different as well.
No referee wearing a snow-white shirt and a dandy bow-tie will decide on the victor on the street or a battlefield,
