So, what is "GOING BADGER?"
Ok, take this little test. A stranger pushed you down. What's your response? Confusion? Fear? Attempt to rationalize that this person is either nuts or you somehow offended him? Maybe take a moment deciding how to react while the adrenaline slowly kicks in? All of the above?
Now picture this same stranger pushing down your sister, mom, child or grandchild. Feel any different? I'll bet you do, because now you likely feel NO fear and have NO response delay. Psychologically and physiologically the protective response we feel for loved ones is different that the protective response we feel for ourselves, and the thought of someone hurting a family member can unleash a fury in you that is instantaneous, with no confusion whatsoever to cloud or delay your response, like Mama Bear and her cubs.
Utilizing that kind of "fury" in an educated way to protect YOURSELF is what "GOING BADGER" is about… strategically reacting to an attack with the same instinctive fury as you would defending your child.
"GOING BADGER" isn't your stereotypical collection of specific self-defense moves countering specific attacks, because attacks are dynamic. A tit for tat, "if he does this, I'll do that" by the numbers approach against a static practice partner will not only overload your memory, but trusting those moves to work against an actual attack will ultimately get you hurt or worse.
"GOING BADGER" is instead a collection of real-world self-defense tips and doable, adaptable moves that SPECIFICALLY address the unexpected attacks that women have a split second to respond to... moves that ANY untrained woman, regardless of age or athletic ability, can instinctively recall and use to decisively stop a larger attacker and get away.
