I Have No Definite Answers Teaching Self Defense

I was thinking about some of the topics I teach and the reactions or questions I get to those topics.  One that might seem odd for a self defense instructor to say, but I totally believe, is a statement I make at the beginning of all my courses.  I say something along the lines of, "Today, I will not have any answers to any of your questions".  After the odd looks, lol, I will say, "I will offer you many many options, but I can't give any definite answers when it comes to self defense."  People have asked if me being a so-called "self defense expert" should require I have all the answers.  I ask people to bring up that question at the end of the seminar.  At the end I will generally remind them of the question ...
