    Bill Paul's nonviolent self defense system.....

    Hi everyone,

    How are you doing? Hope all is ok with you.

    I'm searching info for a future project about Bill Paul's non violent self defense system.

    Can you help me to understand more about it?

    Bill Paul was a famous judo champion and San Francisco activist too

    Take care.

      Don't spam channels with identical posts, man. This isn't the place for that. Pick one place, make one post.

      However, that indeed does sound like some total bullshit.

      Are you referring to this hilariously bad Wing Chun cult stuff?

            I think that it's only a short sample of it.

              Non violent self defense?? Unless it's the art known as sprinting the fuck away I can't see it as being useful. Hippies need to just stop trying to invent self defense systems. Look I get hippies get their asses kicked a lot and are looking for defense, but they can't be "violent" or it makes them toxic.

                  Instead of seeking out knowledge about an esoteric art of Question able value. I suggest you seek out something that is widely available and has been proven to work in violent situations.
                  The real question then becomes what exactly are you trying to accomplish?

                    Isn’t non-violence a state of mind? Could one be kicking ass and thinking happy thoughts...might that be this system that is being referred to (oh and drinking one’s own urine).

                          Are you mistaking violence and aggression?

                              For the record, Bill Paul was a senior judoka and a very smart cookie. His system was developed during the '70s and early '80s specifically for use in professional psychiatric care scenarios, where care workers need to defend themselves against attacks by people who are literally not in control of themselves, and therefore the care workers are ethically and legally obliged to use non-violent defenses. If you want a really depressing read, check out how many psychiatric patients are killed or seriously injured in "restraints" applied by well-meaning but under-trained staff in a given year. Paul's system was easily the most sophisticated method of that type I've ever seen, but unfortunately he died young and his system didn't get the chance to spread outside his own professional sphere (Boston-area psychiatric care units).
