Since, I am physically a small human on the planet, I have designed a self-defense system based on science. I call it, Spherical Self-Defense. It uses physics and physiology to manage effective responses to perceived and real threats. This system incorporates the martial arts skills of Krav Maga, Judo, Kali, Taekwondo and QiGong.
