Whether you are just starting your self-defense journey or have taken your protection seriously for some time, this series of articles is intended to provide you with a comprehensive overview of the areas you should be paying attention to. While this series is certainly going to be more valuable to the newcomer, I believe all of us who choose to live in a way that takes responsibility for our own protection should occasionally take time to consider fundamental self-defense concepts and examine our plans and preparations.
The full work of this series will be done in several parts, each of which addresses a different set of issues. Each part will become increasingly more specific, as we start with broad concepts that apply to anyone and will finish with advice on creating a specific plan for your next steps. As you might expect, each section of this article could be an article (or a book!) on its own. It is safe to say that Personal Defense Network has at least one DVD, if not several, as well as additional articles and video clips related to each section. I encourage you to spend time researching each in more detail before going on to the next collection of information.
