Do not teach self defense this way 🙈

While watching some videos on YouTube, we have found this video about one step self defense (han bon kyorugi). 
Honnestly it is a bit annoying to see this way of teaching, because it is simply destroying the idea of self defense. 
Let's talk about two major mistakes here:
1- the distance between the two practitioners should not be far from each other, and they should close.
By moving through open stance apkubi, the punch should be able to reach the target (head/body) if the opponent does not move backward or to the sides. 

2- the person who is defending should not move toward the attack as we can see in this video, and in general defending yourself requires moving to the sides or moving backward to minimize the percentage of getting hit.
