Why Combat Sports are Better for Self-Defense (Even Weapons Defense) w/ Ward Hiney

My guest today is Ward Hiney, a self-defense instructor at Endeavor Defense & Fitness and a Krav Maga black belt. In this episode we discuss why combat sports are not bad for self-defense. In fact, we go a step further and argue that combat sports are better for self-defense than standard traditional martial arts and "reality-based" self-defense training, even potentially for weapons defense. This is another toe-stepper, and I know it's a controversial opinion, but hear out Ward's argument.

Combat Learning: Science for Better Martial Arts Training
Combat Learning is about radically improving you as a teacher and learner of martial arts using the ecological dynamics and constraints-led approach to training. We explore the little-known frontiers of skill adaptation, perceptual-motor learning, and performance science for combat sports such as jiu jitsu, kickboxing, taekwondo, karate, muay thai, and more.
