The main characteristic of the Self Defense are the following:

1. A Self Defense priority – methods and tactics, and only then techniques

2. Self Defense has no rules

3. All tactics and applying techniques in self defense situations must be within the law

5. In Self Defense every practice must include realistic scenarios

 

However, it is almost impossible to practice in a fully realistic base, since every self defense situation involves special characteristics and unexpected factors.

Therefore ISDO, through its programs and championships, aims to simulate the realistic situations as much as possible.

ISDO fighting styles make all possible efforts to prepare the practitioner psychologically and physically to use Self Defense in the realistic situations.
