self defence...

Post by spiroth10 » Sat Apr 01, 2006 6:36 pm

okay, this may seem rather strange, but I need to learn how to fight. I dont go looking for fights, and Ive only been punched a couple times (only one time when I was in a fight, and I dishonored myself by letting myself take a beating and saying I wouldnt fight back...)

I'm pretty sure that martial arts are worthless for self defence nowadays (they're mostly training for a sport, not real world situations), and I dont need a course to teach me how not to get in a fight or avoid it.

I ONLY need to learn how to fight... I'm not a violent person, and I dont feel threatened constantly -- I just need to learn just in case.

any suggestions on what I should do? Any course I should take or etc? I'm willing to take martial arts, but not if they wont help me like I said...

ALWAYS be moving. When hes punching you block your face, and DO NOT, I repet DO NOT be scared to quickly move up to him, and start punching him. It's a hard thing to learn, but if you sit back and wait, you'll lose. Be aggressive, and if in a street like fight, Tackelings OK.

Look for weak spots. If you're seriously being threatened, you could kick their knees as hard as you can. It's better to kick their knees from behind (at the back of their leg) because if you do it hard enough it can break their legs. I'm not speaking from experience though, only repeating what I've seen/learned.

Be dirty. Kick them in the nuts then kick them in the face.

Take boxing, and just realize just to get use to getting hit. Then learn every "Dirty" trick in the book such as going for knees, collar bones, and crotches. Also do not count anyone out, or think you can outwardly beat them.

Don't get into fights. Fighting isn't worth it in this day and age. Too many people are carrying knives/guns.

Let them hit you then roll around on the ground and scream in pain. Then sue them for every penny they got.

Yeah there is no point in fighting, mainly for the reasons Ace said. I carry a knife a lot, beucase I used to have a lot of problems with fighting becuase my friend's are idiots. I never had to use use it, not that I would unless things got grim. Things have settled down, no fights in quite a while, so I've stopped carrying it.

You can't learn how to fight from reading anything. Its something you actually have to do.
