UFC legend Chuck Liddell demonstrates some bad@ss self-defense moves

Chuck Liddell shows some bad@ss self-defense moves on 'The Ultimate Expedition'

A lot of times in the self-defense world, there are a lot of bogus instructors with no real-world experience teaching people moves that have never really been tested in reality, unfortunately.

However, in this video which took place during the YouTube Red adventure series 'The Ultimate Expedition', we get to see some self-defense moves from someone who's trained and competed his whole life and also happens to be a legend in the sport of MMA - Chuck 'The Iceman' Liddell.

As previously stated, compared to most self-defense instructors, Liddell has been there and is going to know what works and what doesn't. Liddell also allegedly had a lot of street fighting experience growing up so he's most likely seen it all too.

Chuck also makes a very good point in the video below alongside popular gaming YouTuber, Sniper Wolf, that in a real-life self-defense situation, your goal is not quite the same as it is in an MMA fight or even in a regular street fight. In self-defense, your goal is simply to do whatever is necessary to defend yourself so you can escape with your life intact.

So check out the video below to see some bad@ss self-defense moves from someone who has been there and may know a thing or two about fighting.
