Unarmed Self-Defense

Unarmed self-defense is tricky. You can spend years learning things that are counterproductive to how your body moves and what actually happens in a physical conflict. You can also spend years learning skills that depend on youth. As you age, certain kicks, strikes and throws have less meaning because the body can't retain strength and elasticity. Keep it basic, keep it simple, and keep it repetitive.
