In part 2 of the discussion between Tony Blauer and Sam Coffman, they talk about:
- How do you teach the body and brain to react to panic?
- What is the primal flinch or survival reflex, and how can that help us?
- What is Hick’s Law and how do we get the most out of our hard-wired survival mechanism during training for a violent street encounter?
- What is “stress inoculation” and how does that play a role in our response mechanism in a fight?
- How do you practice fighting in a way that forces your body to always know intuitively where its balance point is?
- Why should you avoid hitting someone with your fists?
- Where does ground-fighting and grappling figure into a street fight?
- Why is it important to learn to fight in small, claustrophobic spaces?
