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.
I’m all for self-defense but, as a warning, step three is practically impossible to pull off.
Executing a precise headbutt is difficult during the best of scenarios but pulling off a vertical thrusting headbutt on a guy whose arms are going to be outstretched means you have to have enough force to break through his defenses. In the above scenario, there’s about a 2% chance you’ll actually connect with his chin. You’ll probably connect with his arms and immediately get put in a headlock or choke.
Instead, from step one you should duck and see how his weight is put on his left leg? While ducking, either throw a hard punch or a raise a strong forearm into his groin.
Not only will you smash his balls but if you then - after hitting his balls - rise up while stepping into him, he’ll go down. Then you can go to town with a bunch of kicks while he’s rolling around clutching himself.
Remember, when defending yourself, the key is to keep your most important parts away from the guy. Your legs and arms are their to create distance. A headbutt is severely risky. It comes too close to offering up your throat and face. Not only that but, if you have long enough hair, he can easily yank on that too. DO NOT GO FOR A HEADBUTT.
The truth is, instead of going for fancy knees and elbows, go for his groin, throat and eyes. Men have a variety of different resistances when it comes to pain but ALL MEN will buckle from a well placed strike to the balls, adam’s apple or eyes. Use your thumbs, nails, fingers…whatever you need to.
Tap your throat. Feels gross doesn’t it? Well imagine using two fingers to thrust into a guy’s adam’s apple. You won’t kill him but you’ll definitely do some serious damage.
The key, for anyone, isn’t to use style. Not when it comes to self-defense. I’m a man and not a particularly strong man. If I get in a confrontation with someone in the street; someone bigger and scarier than me…I’m not throwing up my hands and going one-on-one. I’m keeping him at a distance and, should he come close, I’m punching his throat or kicking his dick into his arse. This is DEFENSE NOT HONOUR.
The above scenario can probably be ended at step one. As he grabs your shoulders or clothes, take a step back pulling him forward and causing him to elongate his arms a bit.
Then place one of your arms vertically between his. Around the center of one of his forearms. Push into his forearm and then, with the palm or forearm of your other arm, SLAM into his elbow joint. Hit it hard enough and it’ll break. Hit it had but not hard enough and that works too. Threaten a body with a joint being snapped and it’ll automatically recoil. Then step forward and thumb/claw his eyes while kneeing him in the bollocks.
It’s not always smart to use brute strength against brute strength. Not if someone is more physically threatening than you. You need to be smart about how you protect yourself. Remember, your life is at risk. You’re not going to be put in jail for breaking the arm or puncturing the eyes of a potential rapist. Hell, bite his fucking nose off if you have to.
But remember, he has arms and legs too. They’re going to be doing exactly the same as yours. That’s going to make certain attacks a lot harder than they look. Especially that head butt.
Hell, when he grabs you, bend back two of his fingers and then roll to the ground. If you hold on to those fingers for dear life then your body weight, combined with the twist of your roll will break them. Nobody’s going to get right up from two snapped fingers.
Be smart, be safe and be vicious. Don’t open yourself up to even more danger. Do what you can to seriously injure him and then RUN.
