The term 'self defence' gets bandied about a lot. I've been involved in the martial arts community for a long time now and I don't think I've ever come across a martial arts school or club that doesn't actively advertise self defence or personal safety as one of their main features. But what IS self defence? Does learning any form of martial art automatically enable you to defend yourself in a real attack situation? Can clubs really provide magic bullets and invisible, impenetrable armour that will keep you safe on the streets? Truthfully? The answer is no.
