Hey guys! You can call me John. I spend most of my leisure time outdoors either hunting, fishing or doing something fun. I have to admit that I am no expert but I will be sharing with you interesting stuffs I know 😀
The original laws regarding self-defense required people claiming self-defense to first make an attempt to avoid the violence before using force. This is also known as a “duty to retreat.” While most states have removed this rule for instances involving the use of nonlethal force, many states still require that a person make an attempt to escape the situation before applying lethal force.
First, I could pull up on his arm so he didn’t hit the ground full force after the throw. I also had him on the ground with his wrist in my hand I could control him with it so he couldn’t come at me again. I applied pressure to his wrist to make him realize his situation and asked him to let me enjoy the show. He finally got the picture and agreed to leave me alone.” – Unknown (Sourced from a Quora forum)

Krav Maga is an Israeli art that has gained some popularity. It is the official self-defense system of the Israeli Defense Force and it teaches its practitioners how to deal with armed and unarmed attacks. Women can benefit from Krav Maga because this system’s drills help students to function both mentally and physically when under duress. Krav Maga can empower women to protect themselves against violent situations like sexual assaults. Women can learn how various parts of their bodies like elbows and knees can become weapons when necessary.

My take: Japanese karate has some effective techniques that would be useful in self-defense, especially kicks and direct punches. You don’t need a black belt to achieve real world practicality. But the emphasis on precision and repetition makes the learning process not a whole lot of fun.
I do not agree with those statements. I lift myself and found that in my opinion and performance they compliment each other. But it is dependent on the way you train. Muay Thai is a snapping action art and that comes from the triceps. The bigger the tricep the harder the snappier the punch, the bigger the biceps the pushier the punch. If you lift in proportion it shouldn’t be a problem. The only disadvantage you do have is the bulkier you are, the slower you are but then again…the harder you hit. So you have to focus on the strong points. In terms of damage you might pick up, it depends on what your Muay Thai training looks like. If you can find a club that trains in proper gear there is no damage as the gloves stabilizes your wrist and hands so, as long as you use proper form and technique you will never have a problem. I found that lifting with large muscle groups rather then muscle isolating exercises (like standing barbell curls instead of lets say preacher curls) do help in-proportion building. All the best
Moving on to the bullet specifications, it weighs 230 grain in total. The bullet type on the other hand is the full metal jacket (FMJ). In other words, it is a rather traditional design that features the Sierra accuracy and amazing feeding system. The FMJ bullets are mostly used in semi-automatic pistols. They are popular because they provide deep penetration due to its heavy jacket.
First, You cannot focus on only one aspect and expect your “self-defense” to work. For example, physical application is the most basic and simplest skill set. It is also the last ditch, extreme response. If a situation goes physical it generally means you have not applied the other skill sets correctly. You have allowed the situation to develop to an extreme. Unfortunately, physical force is also the most unreliable of responses. And, as you are now in an extreme, if it fails, you are in deep trouble. It is literally jumping out of a plane with only one parachute that has a 50/50 chance of not working..
Although self-defense is not sufficient to transform institutionalized relations of domination, unequal distributions of resources and risk, or the experience of double-consciousness, it is a form of decolonization and necessary for other kinds of mobilizations. The praxis of resistance is also an important form of self-education about the nature of power, the operations of oppression, and the practice of autonomy. When conditions are so oppressive that one’s self is not recognized at all, self-defense is de facto insurrection, a necessary making oneself known through resistance. While the most common form of self-defense is individual and uncoordinated, this does not make it any less political or any less important to the struggle, and this is true regardless of the mind-set or intentions of those exercising resistance.
Elements of Wing Chun include close-quarters trapping of hands and feet; no kicks higher than the waist, since kicking higher than this leaves the groin and standing leg vulnerable; and simultaneous attack/defense (see #1).
To illustrate, Richard advised us to watch a video of a stabbing that occurred during an ATM mugging in China (you can Google it, we’re not linking it here for reasons you’ll soon understand). It starts with two dudes standing next to each other …
Skills learned in the C.O.B.R.A.™ self-defense program are to be used in real life situations. This is not a sport or a point match. In real life you do not get to pick your bad guy. He/she will almost always pick the time, place and/or method of attack. You will never get this luxury. We train our students with this in mind. This is why C.O.B.R.A.™ was developed to be extremely effective in real life.
Training at 50 yards or greater distances with your defensive carry handgun — or thinking you’re going to end a fight this way — is unreasonable. But if you ever need to, it’s important to know what your capabilities are and what’s the best way to achieve the results you’ll need. Long-Distance Shooting When and
