Re: Self Protection Blog

Should mention how men and women respond differently to adrenaline.

Re: Self Protection Blog

Wayne,

In the books I've read I've not seen anything that mentions that. Can you elaborate and point me to a source for further research please.

Thanks.

With respect

Re: Self Protection Blog

From things I've read, which I don't have have handy right now, is while both sexes release adrenaline the manner in which they do so differs. Men tend to have the big surge all at once while women tend to slowly build it up. I know in classes I took with Rory Miller he has spoken of this and I've witness it in sparring.

So both sexes will experience what you described, men will experience it much quicker then women. Which leads to things while men lose fine motor control at the start of the fight women can maintain this for quite a while during a fight and may not have the effects until after the fight is over.

I also recall reading one study that showed that when placed under stress the brain activity of men and women where much different. The parts of the part of the brain dealing with fight or flight (often called the hind brain) were showing increased activity whereas in women it is the limbic brain showing the increase.

Re: Self Protection Blog

A long awaited update on the blog, this time about improvised weapons, specifically a rolled-up magazine.

As before it's WFS.

Enjoy.
