How do you feel about getting beat senseless or bullied and made to do something you don’t want to do?
It’s a ridiculous question right?
OK, so how do you keep this unpleasant, demeaning stuff from happening? Do you, learn some Ninja-Turtle defensive and offensive moves to guard against disaster?
I’m going to show you three aggressive moves. Because avoiding or preventing beat-downs is a highly self-preservation priority.
But also understand that every attack is a potential chance to learn and practice the art of effective counter-punching.
Of course, sidestepping an assault is a better movement. Then too, experiencing no conflicts is the best situation. But this is probably an unrealistic expectation given the world we are alive in.
Humanly speaking, I used to believe I could fight my way through anything. At that time it was me against the world. In my dreams I could take on all comers like Captain America … and win!
What were my attributes? Superior intelligence? A Hulk-like physique? Humor? Super friends?
No, I only pretended to have those qualities. Truthfully, I had no practice or skill with any of them. This reality led me to the realization that I’m no super-hero.
Honestly, all by myself, I’m incompetent.
So, what are the three aggressive moves for self-defense?
Here are the three aggressive self-defense techniques that will result in guarding (protecting) you from becoming a victim of any opponent or any threat.
- Yield to the Holy Spirit
- Focus on Jesus
- Resist Evil.
Yielding to the Holy Spirit is recognizing that you are inadequate alone. You need help. The Holy Spirit makes you adequate, but not independent.
Focusing on Jesus demands that you see things with the 20/20 eyesight of Jesus. What good is Jesus if you won’t learn to use what he has made available to you?
Resisting Evil means that every time temptation comes you have an opportunity to watch God work in your circumstance. The result is personal prosperity.
Whether it’s physical, psychological, or spiritual, when you learn and practice these three aggressive self-defense techniques you will prevent humiliating beat-downs.
These three techniques are lethal and should be employed with the full knowledge and understanding that they are extremely effective and harmful to your enemy.
