Kinect Game Teaches You Self-Defense

 |  |  |  |  |  |  October 5, 2011

Self-defense is a good thing to know. It’s not just about safety either. It’s a good way to get some exercise too. Forget personal trainers that cost a fortune. The Microsoft Kinect seems like the perfect way to learn how to take on foes while in the comfort of your own home.

At least I’m guessing that Ubisoft thinks so, since they have released a new gamed called Self-Defense Training Camp. The game will teach you how to handle attackers and knock them on their butt. You get both workouts and self-defense exercises that cover technique, reflexes, composure, and stamina.

There are also mini-games that train your reflexes and exercises that are said to help you stay calm in stressful situations. Need some training? The game will arrive on November 8th for the Xbox 360 with Kinect. What do you think? Will this be a good way to train people in the art of self defense or just another poor selling exercise game?
