Being aware of what’s going on around you is in essential component of self-defense. Lack of awareness can mean the difference between life-or-death.

A few weeks ago, there was an incident that occurred at our Bushiken Charlotte dojo. What started as a regular night, quickly turned into a tragedy avoided.  A young lady was being pursued by an unknown male who seemingly had bad intentions.  The young lady had enough awareness to choose the dojo to run too. Had the dojo not been opened that day, the circumstances could have been very different.

Sensei Randall Ephraim, head instructor of Bushiken Karate Charlotte Dojo, also had to have the ability to assess the situation and determine how to interact with the alleged perpetrator in a manner that would not only protect himself, but his students in the woman seeking help.

It is essential to make sure that you are aware of your environment of the person in front of you of anything that could potentially be a hazard to yourself. This is why it’s important to find a good school with practical realistic application to self-defense.
