Title: Physical fitness/Self defense
Post by: gingerkane on April 02, 2011, 10:10:10 AM
I feel it is important that we all know some self defense, stand up (boxing/muay thai) and/or ground (grappling allows smaller individuals to defend themselves against larger indivduals (brazilian jiu jitsu, wrestling, submission grappling) Even if you only take a few classes - you'll know more that you do now - This may also provide you and your family with a physical outlet if stuck indoors for quite sometime and a way to defend themselves and keep in shape as you can repeat whatever you've learned in your classes with no equipment and exercises/training can be done in a small space.

"it is important that we all know some self defense"

This is from a recent e-mail that I received from David Morris of SurviveInPlace.com:

[start quote]
If you’re in a life-or-death situation, you also want to use
techniques that will allow you to escape or move on to the next
attacker as quickly as possible.

Out of respect for those who read their email with their
children, I won’t get into the super effective, stomach-curling
techniques here, but here are a few strikes that are MUCH better
than a punch to the face:

1. Striking the side of the neck with your ulna. (The pinky side
of your forearm)
2. ANY strike to the base of the skull.
3. Striking the esophagus with your ulna.
4. Scratching/jabbing the eyes. (there are specific techniques
that work MUCH better than others)
5. Using your shin to kick the groin.
6. Stomping on the ankle/hand of a downed attacker.

These obviously are techniques that you’d NEVER use on a drunk
friend or some meat head who thinks you’ve taken his spot in
line. They’re not for situations where your ego is bruised or for
any situation where you can simply apologize and walk away. They
are for situations where your life is in danger and an attacker
is trying to kill you.

Hi Gingerkane, I feel your new Topic would be good in this Board,
right in line with this Topic. Would it be OK with you if I moved it to that board?
