The problem with many involved in various martial arts, including melee combat, is that the adept of a combat style, even when well-trained technically and tactically in a real combat situation (On the street, at the entrance or in the stairwell) is unable to apply their knowledge in the field of martial arts and often loses. What’s the matter? Experts estimate the outcome of battle by 80% depending on the psychological superiority. In my opinion, this figure is greatly understated. It all starts in your head. Long before the start of the conflict in his mind a man decides for himself, he won or lost. It is not necessary in this case to blame the unfortunate. After instinct for survival (or survival, as you like), by and large is a terrible thing! A man just could not believe that this situation is dangerous for him. The source of this problem lies in education.
We are taught from childhood, that fight bad (yes even fights should not be in nature – we are civilized people!), do not communicate with bullies (they engaged the police!), it is better to give Ham (be above that!). And with such a mental block with this model behavior at the level of reflexes people live their entire lives without even thinking about it. es a great future in this idea. And he concedes (in a conversation in a fight imposed) and loses. He’s just not ready to fight back! Man by nature – a predator. And it is a reality our lives – we would not have survived without being predators. And we remain predators. It is impossible to suppress in myself, this is just to monitor.
Psychology same melee – Psychology predator. Predator does not solve for themselves the moral problem, whether well kill their prey. No – he wants to eat and it kills. It is full – and it does not kill! Predator and prey are not enemies. And this difference of predator killer. It is necessary to understand and accept. And without breaking up the old stereotype of behavior is not necessary. How can a person remember that he is a predator? This process is very individual. For melee there is no doubt useful to have experience of victories in different situations, for his training in the same entryway or in the stairwell, on a street in a car, etc.
