Welcome back to Self Defense Situation - What Do You Do? - Part 26. In this series of posts, we usually talk about different situations and how you can defend yourself in that situation. Sometimes there are multiple attackers. And the attackers can have weapons. It can happen in any place.
You will find certain moves are very effective based on the situations. Sometimes you should not do something in that situation, although you can make the same move in another situation. If you have not read the previous post, I highly recommend reading this. Here's the link.
I'd like to mention that what we are going to talk about here, that's from the self defense perspective. If you do martial arts and focus on sports, you should train like that. In some fighting competitions, if you can touch your opponent's specific part of the body with kicks or punches, you will get the point. If you get more points, you will win.
In order to be a champion in a fighting competition, you need to focus and train a little differently. But when you fight for self defense, there are no points. If you just touch the attackers with kicks or punches, you might put yourself in a more vulnerable position. The attackers will know that you will attack them back. So they will be more careful to attack you.
I am going to share a video, and we will talk about different situations from the video. This is not my video. All video credit goes to chintya candranaya. You can like or subscribe to her YouTube channel if you want.
If you can avoid a fight, that's the best thing you can do. If you think you can run and get out of there, you can do so. But the thing is, sometimes you have to option except facing the situation.
When you attack your opponent, attack with a strong defense. The girl kicks the first guy who is about to attack her. Did you see the attacker's hands were wide while attacking [from 0:32 to 0:40 minutes]? If the attacker has a strong defense, it will be difficult to hit him.
If you fall on the ground, try to get up as soon as you can. Sometimes you do not get the chance to get up, and the attacker keeps attacking you. When the girl falls on the ground, the attacker kicks her. She defends that kick very well and counter-attack [from 0:37 to 0:57 minutes]. What would you do in this situation? Please feel free to comment below.
That's it for now. Thank you so much for reading this so far. If you are passionate about martial arts and want to learn more about martial arts and self defense, you can check out some of my recent posts.
