1. Excerpts From “In a Heartbeat”


By Philip Holder, PhD.
Grandmaster Ying Gi Ga Wing Chun / North American Wing Chun Association
Copyright by Dr. Philip Holder 2000 – 2015


fightThere is a vast difference between a real fight and sparring. There is also a significant difference between non life threatening, “Beer Muscle Fights”, and a real fight for life and or limb (e.g. when high school chums get in an argument and try to punch each other in the mouth). When I refer to a fight, I’m talking about those situations where the attacker is attempting to inflict serious injury or to kill his opponent. Here are some of the more obvious differences between sparring and a fighting.

Sparring: A participant is usually fighting one opponent.

Fighting: More often than not if attacked on the street it will be by multiple assailants.

Sparring: The participants are usually matched as to size and experience.

Fighting: If someone attacks you it is because they feel they e and can beat you. Usually the advantage is size… An attacker will in most cases be bigger and or stronger than the person that he attacks.

Sparring: Opponents fight in a ring, on mats, or at least on level floor and will have adequate lighting.

Fighting: Can happen anywhere. The surface may be rough, uneven, littered with broken glass, sticks, bottles, or other debris. The surface may be wet or slippery. A fight can happen in daylight or in the dark of night.

Sparring (The Most Significant Difference): Your opponent will compete against you, and will try to beat you, but he or she will usually not try to maim or kill you.

Fighting: Your attacker is committed to doing serious harm to you or may try to kill you.

In view of the differences it is obvious that training for the street requires differences in both technique and in mental attitude from that of sparring for sport. In fact, a person who is a great point tournament fighter may be totally unprepared for dealing with a real street attack. Likewise, a person who is able to break a stack of boards with his hands, feet, or head (Why??) may have no significant ability to deliver a telling blow to a mobile opponent. Breaking inanimate objects requires no ability to create angles of attack and requires no defensive tactics skills. It is quite possible too that neither of the afore mentioned will have the ability to handle the intense levels of stress present in a vicious, real life-or-death, attack.


Although it is important to know what to do if you are taken to the ground (you need some grappling skills), wrestling with an attacker is not a good plan for the street. First of all, most street fights involve multiple attackers. While you are on the ground wrestling around, your attacker’s buddies may blow your brains out, or bash your head in with a baseball bat. Also remember, even though grappling on the mats can be fun, wrestling on pavement that may have sharp edges, broken glass, and other debris can cause you injury even if you ultimately “win” the fight. If this occurs, no matter how the other guy looks after the fight… you both lost. You may have just lost a little less than your opponent.

The key to successful street defense is to make your actions simple and expeditious. It is important that you “take out” your attacker(s) as quickly as possible. To do this it is best to stay on your feet thereby remaining mobile. This is especially true where multiple attackers are involved. Also keep in mind that less is more. I admit, it looks impressive in the movies when Jackie Chan fights the bad guys for a half an hour, jumping through the air, over cars, dodging bullets, executing precision spinning kicks, and leaping from rooftops. It’s great theatre and Jacky Chan is a great artist. The reality is… That stuff only works in the movies! In real life there are no re-takes and no second chances. The guns have real bullets and the knives are intended to cut you open. There is no time for fancy maneuvers in a real fight. Practical techniques for the street are rarely flashy. The techniques that really work are simple and can be executed in a heartbeat.


There are no better street techniques than those that are economical in movement and that neutralize your attacker in the shortest period of time. Great street techniques are those that require minimal force because, as I said, your opponent(s) will probably be bigger or stronger or have the advantage of strength in numbers. Trying to overpower a stronger opponent(s) is a stupid and possibly a deadly mistake. Your advantage must be in stealth, calmness, and the quality of the technique. Ideally, your technique must immobilize any attacker instantly and completely. It must take away the attacker’s ability to re-attack. Any instructor who teaches complicated fighting, or defensive tactics techniques, and claims that they will work on the street, has probably never been in a real fight. If you want to acquire great fighting skills for real situations, look for an instructor teaching quick and simple approaches to fighting. As well, teaching street-wise techniques in a realistic format prepares students to handle the emotional stress of a real attack. Street effective tactics can have risk and should only be practiced under the guidance of a qualified instructor, and with the right protective equipment.

Hypnosis feels great & is as natural as daydreaming!

When hypnotized you are always in control.  No one can make you do, or say anything that you would say in a regular waking state.  You are not asleep and can bring yourself out of hypnosis at any time, if you chose to. You’ve likely been in hypnosis thousands of times in your life and didn’t realize it, because the movie image of hypnosis rarely resembles the reality.

Hypnotherapy is a proven, safe, and effective method of achieving durable and long-lasting success with smoke cessation.

5. Online and Tele-Sessions Save Time, Travel and Money

Occasionally technology can be frustrating, I think we would all agree, but for the most part, technology has added wonderful new opportunities to our lives. It can save us time, money and give us the opportunity to learn and experience things that would be difficult or impossible to do without this wonderful new tool. We can now communicate face to face in real time worldwide.

BodySmart wellness has taken full advantage of this great technology. Once students had to travel from wherever their home base was, to wherever Dr. holder was, for classes or sessions, incurring not only tuition expense, but travel expense, lodging expense and the time away from home and/or work. People wanting to see Dr. Holder regularly for individual, family or group sessions were, for the most part, limited to people within a reasonable driving radius, but that’s all changed!

Thanks to technology, training and certification courses, sessions, life coaching, can be done from anywhere in the world so long as the person has a computer, Webcam and high-speed Internet connection. Imagine doing one on one sessions, training or mentoring with Dr. Holder from the comfort of your own home, office or from the park or the beach. Well now you can.

Those interested should call the BodySmart wellness office and schedule a phone conversation, personally, with Dr. Holder to discuss your needs and tailor the best options for you. Call and purchase before 08/10/2015 and receive an additional free hour with Dr. Holder when you purchase an 8-session program for either sessions, coaching, training or mentoring.
