Self-Defense Requirements

We take the base techniques and apply them to what we call Offensive Self-Defense.  This puts us at an advantage as we are always in control and we're not simply waiting for the attack to happen.  With Offensive Self-Defense we need to recognize that it will not be a "fair fight."  There are no rules, weight classes, or referee.  This can be extremely dangerous if you're not prepared.
