Realism In Self Defense Training
More than the Awareness/Avoidance segment of self defense, I think the biggest segment skipped is the verbal assault with realistic language and emotion. Either the instructor isn't comfortable doing, or they're worried about upsetting their clients, but if one can't deal with that, they can't perform any physical concepts! At least start off with a minimum level, and gradually increase the realism. Each client is unique, but you need to take them just out of their comfort zone with the drills once you've established a level of trust with them.
