Ideal Self-Defense Moves

» Posted by on Oct 23, 2020 in Martial Arts | 0 comments

Hopefully, you won’t have to utilize force against another person to defend yourself. However, there’s a possibility that you will find yourself in a situation where you’ve got to defend yourself someday. You should be ready if that day ever comes. You want to improve your possibilities of safely getting out of that situation.  

Whenever it comes down to either the attacker or you getting hurt, you’ve got to ensure it is the attacker. Here are a couple of ideal basic self-defense moves that you will typically learn at a Kung Fu class Washington. 

Gouge the Eyes 

This might appear like a bad thing to do to a person. However, you’ve got to keep in mind that you have to do what’s needed in a self-defense situation. Picking the wrong mark is an occupational danger for attackers, kidnappers, and muggers.  

There are two ways to do this. The first one is to poke their eyes. Take your middle finger and your pointer on one hand and make a peace sign. Then, jab the eyes of the attacker as hard as possible. Make sure you hit both eyes.  

The other technique is much more brutal and painful. If you’ve got the chance, grab the face or head of the attacker with both hands and push your thumbs into their eyeballs. You have to do this hard.  

Kick to the Groin 

You should not utilize this move unless you’ve got to. The truth is that this move is not legal in almost every sport because of the amount of pain they can give. However, normal rules do not apply in a life-or-death situation. You’ve got the right to defend yourself any strike if a person is threatening you.  

A kick to the groin is obviously much more effective if the attacker is a man. However, it can still be used to incapacitate female attackers. Most attackers will instantly drop using a well-aimed front kick. This will provide you a lot of time to run away.  

Nose Palm Strike 

A palm strike to the nose can be deadly, according to urban legend. Though you should not expect this type of outcome in the real world, this method can definitely be successful against the strongest attacker. 

lot of various martial art forms use palm strikes. There’s a reason for that. Our palm contains soft tissues that make it a great striking surface. It’s able to deliver a strong attack without hurting yourself.  

The palm strike can cause disorientation and breakage if you deliver it to the underside of the nose.  

This method will obviously be more effective if the attacker is standing closely in front of you. Slam your palm’s heel into their nose as hard as possible. You should put your entire body into it. You need to aim for the nostrils since this strike is delivered at an upwards angle.  

Carry yourself with confidence wherever you go. If possible, stay away from sketchy situations and always trust your instincts. The key principle of self-defense is situational awareness and you should practice that.
