Are you a 'road-rager'?
Good old ‘road rage’.
I find it a pretty good barometer of a person’s ability to control their emotions, particularly anger, and to deploy any amount of self-control.
This is why our training is so heavily focused on de-escalation, verbal defusion, ego-control, self-regulation, fear management, and self-awareness.
Seriously, if you can’t control your anger response and impulses when someone cuts you off in traffic, how are you EVER going to control them when a threatening individual is in your face abusing, insulting, and threatening you?
Self defence starts with self-awareness and self control. When we learn to manage ourselves, managing the ‘other person’ becomes a whollllllle lot easier.
Food for thought.
