I would like to give all people who visit the self defense area a basic course overview. I will attempt to break it down into beginner lessons. The first lesson will be on falling and how to land in ways to minimize injury.

During a self defense (martial art) situation ,it's a good chance the confrontation will end up on the ground.

Have you ever heard people say that intoxicated people don't get hurt when they fall. Well thats not true, but it has some basis of fact.The truth is that they have a tendency to be more relaxed during a fall. This will allow a person to go with a fall rather than collide hard with the ground.

Slapouts are the first basic lesson you will be taught when you come to my school.These are the techniques that professional wrestlers use .

The front slapout is taught as follows. Turn your head to the side with your tongue touching the roof of your mouth. Put your arms out in front of you,so they would hit the ground before your head.Use your hands as airbags to difuse the energy and impact of the fall. Finally elongate or lenghten your fall to give you a bit more reaction time. This basic technique if practiced and used correctly will be essential in your self defense program.

Any questions about any self defense/karate/martial arts. Please contact me at my website or school.

Highest Regards, MJ Bertucci
