Excerpt: [on sharing what one of his colleagues told him] "Self Defense deals with the onset of Violence, the beginning of the violent moment. Basically the engagement, the first punch thrown etc... If you are amazing at self-defense maybe you did your 360, maybe you nailed them with a punch, situation over. But, more often than not, that self-defense moment turns into a fight. So he defines self-defense and fighting as self-defense the kind of before to the beginning and fighting as the during and maybe a little bit after." -Saar Markovitch
