    It is more semantics than a fallacy.

    The injury rate in TJF is actually pretty high, IMHO you're at least as likely to get hurt as training in an alive style.

    So clearly you feel more confident about your ability to defend yourself with “Jitsu” than without.

    This confidence may alter your behaviour in a confrontational situation, for the better (less likely to look scared/like a victim) or the worse (more likely to stand up for yourself and thus go from a confrontation to a physical fight).

    If it’s an inferior fighting system, I consider it entirely possible that this false confidence could well do more harm than good. At least if you did, say, judo, the confidence you feel would have something to back it up. Don’t let your mouth write cheques that you can’t cash, or however the saying goes.

    And maybe you won't be crippled by the time you reach the age of 50.
    Ah yes—it’s of course a well-known fact that there are no old people in judo. And arts like BJJ—sheesh, we might all end up cashing out early like Helio!

    Relevant paper which I got sent recently: link to paper

    tl;dr: postural gait over gestural gait makes you a less attractive victim.

    Looks like good posture is safer as well as sexier. Maybe people should start recommending pilates, yoga or ballet for SD? I've seen poor posture in some gendai budo practitioners.

    You just did what he did.

    There are confidence building and situational awareness classes that help SD and have nothing to do with MAs. Yes, can involve pilates, ballet or yoga.

    *snicker* Semantics.

    My self confidence stems from the abnormal shape of mine.

    Is the injury rate in TJF from training, or ass-kickings?

    Training. Having to do loads of stupid break falls, and people who accuse you of resisting so they totally wrench-on joint locks. Wrists are apparently the most injured part from what I heard.
