From a self-defense perspective, all research indicates that during real-life confrontation, the body undergoes a PCSR (Psycho Chemical Stress Response). When this occurs, the ability to access logical thoughts all but diminishes. Instead, under the conditions of PCSR, the human brain accesses what is referred to as the ‘Primal Brain’, which controls instinctive behaviour.
So what does this all mean? Unlike self-defense courses that show a person a set of logical defenses against a potential attacker (none of which become instinctive), Moon Tigers’ acclaimed self-defense karate strategy sets out to develop appropriate ‘instinctive‘ habits in its participants. This gives them the ability to act rapidly and to maximum effect when placed in stressful circumstances.
