I want to share some important information about how to defend yourself in a street fight. You will learn how to avoid a fight, as well as techniques to use to get the best of your attacker.
Martial arts fighting techniques #1 – Be aware of your surroundings at all times. Hone your ability to be aware of people, lighting, places, and potential attackers during your everyday routine. Do not allow yourself to become another statistic who made yourself available to an attack by being ignorant of your surroundings.
Martial arts fighting techniques #2 – If you realize an attack is imminent, be the first one to make a move. Firmly state to the attacker, “I don’t want problems,” while holding your hands in front of your face and keeping your elbows tucked into your middle abdominal area; attack only as a last resort.
Martial arts fighting techniques #3 – When it comes to street fighting, a crucial detail to remember is that you never want the fight to descend to the ground. Get back to an upright position as soon as you can if you do happen to find yourself forced to the ground. Jiujitsu is a powerful sport based and mixed mma technique; however, it does not offer you any help in a street fighting situation.
Martial arts fighting techniques #4 – Overcome your opponent through forceful martial arts moves. Several effective, aggressive moves include kicking the shins or kneecaps, groin kicks, neck and throat strikes, eye gouges, and of course following through with your strikes until you have an opportunity to get away from your attacker. Use these four methods to keep yourself safe from an attack or to survive during an attack.
