The Four Star Self- System is a comprehensive system for self- based on understanding and controling conflict. The theories and techniques we teach are accessible to ordinary people without age, gender or fitness level restrictions.
Self- is more than an eye gouge, a kick to the groin or a weapon used against an attacker. Defending oneself in real life rarely means fighting or injuring someone who threatens or attacks you. All too often a weapon is turned against a defender or an ineffectual kick or punch results in escalating the level of violence and risk of injury to the defender. Effective self- is about awareness and avoidance first, control and escape second and counter-attacking only as a last resort.
