This video is great.  In this video clip Jim Carey demonstrates the typical problem of most self defense instruction:  the attacker must attack you exactly this way, otherwise the technique will not work.  Any slight deviation by the attacker, and you’re done.  Self defense should intially start off with a good base in basic technique, than the student should learn Goal Oriented training.  If you want to know what Goal Oriented training is ask Linda or Joey de Los Reyes.  Better yet if you are a female and you have a concern about personal protection, check out the RAVEN Self Defense course being held by Linda on Feb 22, 2009-Jd
