Real training vs. “REEL” training


Training for reality is about effectiveness.

Training for making a ‘sizzle video or  “REEL” or for demo is about image and presentation.

Both have a place in martial arts BUT it’s very important for instructors to know the difference so we don’t teach ‘show’ when we need to be teaching ‘go’ skills.

Here are some links to videos when I did a keyword search using “self defense, moves, techniques, demos”
1.  Which are “real” or ‘REEL’ self defense and why?
2.  Which one (or ones) accomplishes the ‘mission’ whether it’s ‘real’ or ‘REEL’ training.

    • Thanks David. I wanted to make the distinction w/o being critical of either ‘mission.’ I think I accomplished that.
