Our self-defense classes train the low growl as a high-value technique in our toolkit. We start with a warning. If someone’s getting too close, you calmly, quietly, but firmly tell them to back off.
Warriors are trained to be fearless. What does “fearless” mean? The absence of fear? No one can keep fear from pouring in, but the warrior is trained to set it aside and act separated from fear. Hence, for all intents and purposes – fearless.
Here’s the kicker: a good posture will only get you so far. You need actual skill to back up your signals. They need to tell the truth. Otherwise, you might be the one crumbled in a heap. You don’t want that. You want to walk away alive and in one piece. Your loved ones want you back home safely. Yes, listen to your mom but do more than that.
