Rostami Intelligent Self Defense (IISD)


Calm, but Alert. Relaxed, but ready. Smooth, but sharp. Humble, but confident.

Since the earliest history, security has been man’s vital necessity and human being has always been striving to provide persistent security in life .
We have all been granted a powerful defensive system in our body, called immune system , which is promptly activated by the very first virus or microbe attack to preserve life. As you see, your immune system is never off. It just reacts in special conditions. Now, if somebody is suffering a disorder in their immune system , such as Hepatitis and HIV , the body can be infected by a minor virus which manifests the significance of immune system . It is the same in our body . Can one live in peace and quiet without a worldwide defensive system, Is any peace persistent? However some are basically opposed to peace. We simply take no notice of the frightening newspaper reports, doubtless the next victim is not us or our family. No one will have their personal cap worldwide. So we defend ourselves or others against physical treats through systematic self-defense methods.
