Basic Self-Defense Moves with Carlos Jimenez

Learn about Carlos Jimenez, one of Howcast's self-defense experts, in this video.

Hi, my name is Carlos Jimenez. I’m a second degree black belt in Kajukenbo self defense. I’ve been training Kajukenbo since 1999. I’m also a trained and certified acupuncturist and I’ve been using pressure points for a long time. I combine those with my method of self defense.

The principal reason why I’m teaching this is because I like to empower people to know how to defend themselves so they don’t feel threatened or they don’t have to have the fear. That happened to me. I was afraid and I am still afraid in certain areas, but that always helps me a little bit more and more everyday, since a practice is a practice with real people. It allows you to confront certain fears that we all have. I think the training allows you to react in certain ways. Even if it’s totally different from when you practiced, still you have the tools in your mind, that once you are in this situation, you will be able to react in a proper way.

It really is all about training and about developing these tools and repeating them over and over again. If you want to know a little bit more about me, you can check out my website. You can also come and train. I currently offer different ways of training. I have the regular group where you can come with other people. You have corporate training. Also you have special training one on one. You have to be prepared but I hope you feel empowered and you feel curious about this. You can check out not only my website but you can have more information about this system or the systems that I’ll talk to you about.
