Fighting techniques

just wondering, I don't plan on getting into any fights or anything. but, does any one know effective ways to take down a person? Like pressure points maybe, Or ways to defend yourself successfully? don't get freaked out, I am a nice guy. I like gardens and animals.

I know everyone will say, "kick thier balls" but that won't always work the way we hope. i think i want to but a gun later on. maybe one for my mom too. You never know what will happen these days...yikes!, I have been watching too much movies. Bourne Identity is a great movie.

Any way, Does any one know any effective defensive, (or offensive ) techniques?

Re: Fighting techniques

I think the best way to defend yourself is to walk away from any fights, I have tons of streetfights during school time, when I think back now, I could have avoided a scar on my face if I just walk away, just my opinion

The "Glasgow Kiss" always works well... as Zinedine Zidane showed us in the World Cup Final. Stick the heid on 'em!

Re: Fighting techniques

Unless you're at gunpoint or you are backed into a corner with a knife, the safest, and smartest defense is to flee the situation.

Re: Fighting techniques

You will NOT learn anything from reading in here. Go to a gym and start training. You must put your hands on another person and take him down to learn how to do it. It sounds like you want to take either greco-roman wrestling or jiu jitsu, those would be what you are looking for.

Re: Fighting techniques

:Lol:

I have done a few martial arts over the years. Although mainly Wado Kai Karate.

What that did for me is make me a lot more aware of, and sensitive to peoples actions and intentions. I find that I can read situations and get out of them when I need to quickly i.e. by walking away. To be honest in the tweny years since I first started martial arts I haven't ever really needed to fall back on it. Mostly because I don't get into a lot of those situations, but aslo because I will just walk away.

If self defense is a worry for you then do go to a self defense class. Apart from physical techniques they give you a broader look at how to avoid probelms, and psycologically deal with situations.

You can also join a martial arts club, although in my exerpience they don't always truly focus on self defense as much as self development within the confines of a grade/competition syllabus.

Re: Fighting techniques

I like to whip 'em into the ropes and follow through with a clothesline then pick 'em up for a snap suplex, tag my partner (waiting on top of a nearby parked car) and let him drop the big elbow. WHATCHA GONNA DO BRAH...

Seriously, I'd recommend getting some sort of self-defence spray if you can't (or don't want) to get physical. Scrapping in school is ok (well it's not ok, but you know what I mean) because if they fight dirty you can call the guy on it take the piss, plus you don't get into any kind of REAL trouble. In the big wide world you want to avoid fighting like the plague because you never know what the other guy has up his sleeve, literally.

But yeah, mace 'em, then kick him in the nadgers and RUN!

Re: Fighting techniques

get yourself a good pair of shoes and practice running away from things

like for example, stand near a tree, and then run away from it as fast as you can
