Self-Defense is what you are trying to do in the midst of an attack. Self-Protection is, "Let's not go there in the 1st place, but if we do, it is also the physical techniques you need to get the time you need to get someplace safe... even if you are attacked by the biggest badest person you've met in the passed few weeks."
I can teach you these things if you come to one or more of my seminars. Not everyone is nice. Be Prepared!
