What is the Definition of Self-Defense?

Self-defense is the ability to protect oneself and/or family members from bodily harm. The use of force is contingent on how much force was used by the attacker. This can look like punches, kicks, defense tools being drawn and used, and shoves to escape.  

What is the Most Important Part of Self-Defense?

The two key components to surviving an attack using self-defense are staying upright and conscious. If you want the best fighting chance, you need to keep on your feet. Of course, Katalyst Krav Maga also gives you the tools to fight from the ground if you end up on the ground. 

Should You Scream if Attacked?

Yes, when attacked, you should scream, call for help, anything that will draw attention to yourself. The noise will drive away attackers if they think they will get caught. Doing anything that attracts people or raises suspicion will help you survive the attack.
