Train Yourself Like a Warrior

Learning to grapple can be highly effective for self-defense because it teaches you how to control and neutralize an opponent, especially in close-range combat situations. Grappling techniques involve manipulating an opponent’s body through techniques like throws, joint locks, and chokeholds, which can allow a smaller, weaker person to gain the upper hand over a larger, stronger attacker.
