Huge Self Defense Mistakes – Working Out in the Gym Does NOT Equate to Self Defense Skills – Meet World Class Body Builder Aaron Baulch

Working out in the gym:

  • Does NOT develop one’s self defense skills,
  • Does NOT develop the proper mindset, 
  • Does NOT develop situational awareness, 
  • Does NOT develop fighting skills, 
  • Does NOT develop tactics, 
  • Does NOT develop good judgement, 

… but it might develop an Over Inflated Ego that could lead to a Free ride to the hospital in an ambulance… or a hearse.

Meet Aaron Baulch – World Class Body Builder, Movement Coach, Cane Empowerment Coach, and an all around great person.

Today we will discuss that working out in the gym does not equate to knowing anything about Self Defense. In fact, it might lead one to gaining the unneeded skill of blocking punches with their face… quite painful, as well as disfiguring.

Aaron will also share First Hand, Personal life threatening stories  and dangerous experiences.

Aaron will also shares his personal advice for those who are foolish enough to believe that working out in the gym without learning self defense can be a HUGE mistake.

So grab your favorite drink, and listen… This Podcast might just Save Your Life!
