Whether it's in your daily life or a survival situation, there's always a possibility you may encounter some bad company at some point. By this, I mean some kind of violent, hostile, or aggressive person that may try to hurt you. When SHTF, this could be commonplace, but right now, it's a simple crime that could happen to anyone.
Because of this, it's important you know how to defend yourself. And there are many self-defense maneuvers out there that anyone can utilize. These will definitely help keep you safe when under attack, so they're critical to know!
Here are the 3 key self-defense maneuvers everybody should know, thanks to the folks from The Prepper Journal.
The attack on knee-caps:
For any form of a building, the base is an essential part which stabilizes the complete structure. So whenever you find yourself in a situation where the potential of getting attacked is high, the first thing you need to do is stay calm and try to have a verbal communication with the opponent.
The reason behind communication is to understand why the opponent is willing to attack you. If the reason is just a small amount of cash then it is better to give away cash to avoid conflict. This would not be the expensive trade to perform.
But, if the opponent doesn’t want to engage you with communication then apply the second strategy which involves making firm eye contact with him/her. This will send a strong signal to them that you also have the potential to fight. This will either break them and compel them to run from the situation or will offend them to attack and when they will approach to attack you then right away with your right leg attack on their knee-cap.
(Note: A forceful attack on their knee will provide you the time frame around 5 to 10 mins)
The attack on groin:
Most attackers are male and they love to show their irrelevant impact on others by performing meaningless acts. Behind every strong power, there is a small amount of weakness which makes them helpless.
So if you have been attacked and you can see there is no place to run, then try to be aggressive because if the opponent is pretending to be strong, then by seeing your aggressive behavior he will run instead.
On the other hand, if they start smiling at this behavior of yours then you should stop doing it immediately because they are the real fighters and could prove harmful for you. You do not need to become tense as what you can do is put your both hand on their shoulders and within a matter of seconds lift your right knee up and bang into their groin.
The groin is the most sensitive part of the male body by attacking that it would be almost next to impossible for him to get up for at least 15 to 20 mins. From this, you can see how advantageous this defensive move is?
The attack on Ribs/Solar Plexus:
The moment some stranger attacks on you can bring feelings of frustration and helplessness if you are not familiar with the concepts of self-defense. Relying on others has never been a healthy option at any cost. It is always better to protect yourself by developing our fighting skills.
So if you find yourself surrounded by a goon then the best way to avoid conflict is to run away from the situation. And by any means, if you are not able to do so then forcefully attack their ribs or solar plexus. This will break their force and will allow you 20 mins minimum of time to run away from the situation.
Attacking the ribs is the most favorable technique which has been used by many in terms to carry the fight for a long time period. What else you can do is attack the softest tissue of their body which is under their nose. This will make them unconscious and a hefty amount of time you will carry to get some help.
And there you have it! Three simple yet extremely effective methods of self-defense right there. So, just memorize and practice those, and you'll be a formidable foe in any melee or close-quarters combat!
