why aren’t these being reblogged more often? i rather see these than “keys in hand”
Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest?
I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)
Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.
reblogging again for that^
Reblogging for the steps in the image and the explanation in the comments. I don’t so much like the explanation on the image proper, but I appreciate the thought behind it (here, have a self-defense thing, it could save you) and so I’m passing it on.
You should also ALWAYS keep your arms up in self defense or fighting stance, it’s better for blocking (and pretty much the number one rule in martial arts). Hitting with elbows is putting more force into a smaller surface area (like when you step on a needle) so that’s something you’re definitely going to want to do. And if they ever grab you from behind in a bear hug, spread your weight and make your feet twice shoulder width with the knees slightly bent and slam your elbows into their gut and step on their feet.
Also if you have poor flexibility DO NOT attempt an axe kick at the end (if that is an axe kick?), you’ll hurt yourself. Instead I recommend repeatedly stomp with your heel as a driving force or raising your leg halfway at about chest height. Remember to keep your arms up (even if the person is on the ground) because it feels awkward to balance a kick when your arms are down.
Lastly step three looks really fucking risky, just land an uppercut to the jaw and slam a cross to the temple. Then proceed to knee them in the soft crotch area. While keeping your arms up…
It’s not often I feel fantastic about my body or how I look, so sorry not sorry for this display of narcissism. My face isn’t in the picture not bc it didn’t look good, but because I was brushing my teeth. Also, my bathroom is a hideous shade of green and no amount of Instagram filters will make it look good.
