Critical information on Self-defense
Did you know? Self-Defense is a legal term. It does not describe a type of martial art or personal protection training program. Self-Defense is literally an affirmative defense in the eyes of the law. If you say "I acted in self defense" to anyone at any time you have publicly admitted to committing assault. That's a crime.
