"One thing has always been true: That book ... or ... that person who can give me an idea or a new slant on an old idea is my friend." - Louis L'Amour

"Ideally, your self-defense will never get physical. Avoiding the situation and running or talking you way out - either of these is a higher order of strategy than winning a physical battle." - Wise Words of Rory Miller, Facing Violence: Chapter 7: after, subparagraph 7.1:medical

"Read not to contradict and confute; nor to believe and take for granted; nor to find talk and discourse; but to weigh and consider..." - Francis Bacon

Why so many posts on "seeing and hearing?"

We process information of the world by our senses. The majority fall under either sight or hearing - primary. The others, i.e. touch, taste, smell, are important and most of us in martial arts must, should, will train to use those as well yet the eyes/ears are also a primary.

The others are more necessary when the two persons start to physically interact. Smell of a person tells you something; feel of a technique as applied tells you something; taste can also tell you stuff  be it a taste in your mouth or something tasted, etc. yet what you see or hear are a primary tool in awareness.

In deescalation you eyes and hearing are critical to the communications you use but that is also tempered with knowing what to see and hear as well as what to say in response to the many stimuli you encounter in a self defense/protection scenario.

This is why you will see far more posts on seeing and/or hearing than other senses for SD, etc. or just for training/practice of martial systems.
