    The Best Defense is a Good Offense……

    Lets see where this goes. Article by Don Robison Suarez International Tier 1 Staff Instructor.



    It’s a bit cliché’ but often said that the best defense is a good offense. What does that mean? To me; that means always be on the offensive. All over the internet we hear people expounding the idea of the “defensive mindset”; I say hogwash. A defensive mindset is the mindset of a person who doesn’t plan or take measures to better ensure their safety or the safety of their loved ones; they sit around waiting for something to happen so they can defend themselves against it. A person with an offensive mindset is always thinking, they are always planning ahead and doing things to mitigate the risk of being attacked.

    What kind of a person are you?

    What kind of a person are you? The defensive mindset person pulls into a gas station hops out of their car and fills up with gas. The offensive mindset person pulls into a gas station takes a look around and assess their surroundings, looking for possible problem people, areas, and avenues of approach and formulates a plan of action for the what if scenarios.
    I see where the author is coming from but what he calls offense is something that I have always done. However I have always considered it as establishing a defense.

    Semantics and interpretation often have those who agree in concept, debating.

    Yup, I'm for "pre-emptive strike(s)" if I sense something is coming. In other words, even if BG hasn't/doesn't throw a punch, swing his stick, pull his knife/gun, etc., I would much rather take aggressive, physical measures first, up to and including getting out of Dodge, before he has a chance to hit me.

    This is similar/applicable to one of the (advanced) elements of martial arts, whereby, you anticipate/sense your opponent's attack. Because you "struck" first, it may appear that you are being the "aggressor" when, in fact, you are the defender.

    What he calls offense I call situational awareness. Offense would be some one looking to make the first strike against another person. Otherwise you are "defending" yourself against another person's choice to harm you.

    SA is SA, regardless of what you want to call it.

    I never let my tank get below a quarter of a tank.

    An eigth of a tank is too low.

    I've always said that if you have to get defensive, you have already failed at something.
