7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, preferably in a zig-zag pattern! [or in a straight line to cover–an object capable of deflecting bullets]
The second reason for clarification is to distinguish the strategies, ways of theorizing, and forms of social relations of liberatory movements from those of reactionary movements. There is an increasingly influential understanding of self-defense today that reinforces a particular notion of the self—a “sovereign subject”—that is corrosive to horizontal social relations and can only be sustained vis-à-vis state power. This notion of the self runs counter to the goals of non-statist movements and self-reliant communities. To be aware of these possibilities and pitfalls allows us to avoid them, a goal to which the following sketch of a critical theory of community self-defense seeks to contribute.
We do this through the MMA Base, which consists of boxing, Thai boxing, stand-up wrestling, and Brazilian jiu jitsu. You don’t have to become a high level MMA fighter, but you do need to train against completely uncooperative opponents attempting to kick, punch, and wrestle with you. Otherwise, you will not be prepared for it if it happens on the street.
A wrestler or boxer is conditioned to transition when his attack doesn’t go as planned or when his opponent does something completely unexpected or when an injury or pain occurs suddenly. He’s practiced managing combat fear not just at a cerebral level but at a deep bodily conditioned level.
Some personal protection weapons are very powerful or lethal while others simply stun or incapacitate an attacker, which is usually all you need anyway. Remember: a very powerful weapon always has the risk of severe accidental injury.
Pencak Silat is a term used for a collection of Indonesian martial arts that were developed to combat the Dutch. It has a wide variety of forms, and picking the correct one is crucial for effective self-defence.
I stopped training in Hwarangdo when the teacher turned his dojang into an MMA cage fighting school, and there are no other schools in my area. I’m not interested in cage fighting, but I would really like to get back into training an art that is effective for street self defense.
Thanks to its effective grappling techniques, it is also widely used amongst MMA fighters. Though it has some limitations when it comes to striking techniques, its focus on tug-of-war type drills with partners has proven to aid its practitioners to succeed in real life altercations.
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 …
Sparring sports like boxing or MMA are not self-defense, either. They are fighting sports, and can make you kick ass in a ring setting, but they are not self-defense. And for some, being good at fighting is likely to work against you in self-defense situations, because you are more likely to think you can fight your way out of it, when fleeing is the much better option.
First and foremost, the bullet weight is measured in unit grains. Moving on to the type, there are various bullet types out there with the popular ones being the jacketed hollow point (JHP) and full metal jacket (FMJ)-there are others as well but the well sought-out ones are these 2 types.

In the first series, the brown belt chokes the black belt. The second series shows the black belt putting the brown belt in an arm bar. In the third series, you see the brown belt put the black belt in an arm bar.
The Terminator has an internal rechargeable battery, which removes the need to find 9V batteries all the time. It also has a built in super bright LED light which is good for temporarily disorienting an aggressor, allowing you to move in for the “kill”.
1. Bad guys hit back…AND defend themselves. Run away screaming from any system that tells you to ignore defense and just hit lethal targets on the bad guy’s body. This will work on a drunk. Maybe. Believe it or not, there are extremely popular and super-expensive training systems out there that advocate this. Their training borders on the criminally negligent.
Krav Maga is perhaps the most well know of any self defence system in the world. The word Krav Maga in Hebrew means “contact fighting” and it is the official self defence system of the Israeli Defense Forces,
Brazilian JuJitsu- most metro areas have an abundance of BJJ schools. And if you look, you’ll find schools with 50% or more women. And if you are rolling on the mat in close physical contact…. Well, I also know of multiple marriages that started as partners on a BJJ mat.
Can’t seem to find their affiliations on their site so can not unfortunately comment on their validity. Would rather recommend http://www.kravmagax.com/ as they are directly aligned with Eyal Yanilov. All the best
Original Jiu Jitsu has its roots in Japan in the 1500’s, but in the early 20th Century, a Japenese master taught the art to a family of Brazilians (the Gracies), and they truly made it their own. Relying less on brute force attacks, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu uses leverage and an opponent’s strength to his or her disadvantage. In the early UFC competitions, you can see this in action—Royce Gracie defeating much larger opponents with takedowns and submissions. People are more aware of this fighting style now. You can’t know only this one practice and be successful in MMA, but it’s a very useful martial art if you ever find yourself in a street fight. The only downside is the emphasis on pure ground fighting. It’s helpful to also know throws and takedowns, but some gyms don’t teach those skills if they’re more focused on sport Jiu Jitsu.
That being said, these 25 rounds are packed and neatly arranged in trays, in the box provided upon purchase. The orderly arrangement comes in handy for your added convenience, as you get simple access to the rounds when needed. All in all, these bullets are one of the most effective, consistent and reliable self-defense ammo out there. Why is that so?
Anyone who has grown up in a tough neighborhood, and has fought seasoned street fighters or multiple assailants knows how far solid wrestling, boxing and judo training can go. Any prison inmate knows a person with a solid wrestling or boxing background is a formidable opponent…point blank. And anyone who has a little street experience knows how far the average Karate/Kung-Fu training will get you in a real life confrontation with a committed, aggresive, experienced and fit opponent who will fight through pain and injury. Not that Karate or Kung Fu are defunct, only the way that they are trained in American schools does not prepare the students to defend themselves against a committed, experienced and large street fighter the way amateur boxing and wrestling do. My of the ‘lethal’ strikes that are taught sound great in theory and could work in the hands of a master, but are not enough against an angry committed assailant where much of the sport techniques and the presence of mind that boxing and wrestling develop can save your life. (Ex. I’ve been grabbed from behind and before I realized what I was doing, I applied inside slip in from hs wrestling and had turned tables on my opponent before I consciously realized he was my opponent)
Warming up and stretching is important prior to a workout, but it’s definitely impossible to get the best self defense training if you don’t stretch after each session. It can be challenging to make yourself take the time to stretch once your class is completed, especially if you’re attempting to fit Krav Maga training into an already-busy life. However, if you don’t make the time, you’ll be missing out on many of the benefits of training, and you might even be doing more harm than good.
Much of wrestling or boxing training involves sparring with better, bigger, faster, more conditioned opponents and being on the losing end. A judoka is not going to panic when he suddenly finds himself in a choke hold nor will a boxer completely fall apart when he takes an unexpected blow.
Well, that’s where prevention comes in, and that starts with paying attention. Violent street criminals, like most of us, prefer doing things the lazy way. In their world, that means picking easy targets. They like sucker-punching (or stabbing) distracted people, using the element of surprise to end a confrontation before it begins. With practice, though, you can adopt the posture of someone who can’t be surprised.
Sport based systems, such as kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing, Savate, Shoot Boxing, Sanshou, Grappling, Judo, BJJ, Sambo, MMA and Wrestling are not generally suited for Self-Defense, and therefore are purely sport oriented.
The Krav Maga Worldwide Training Center Darren opened was the first of its kind in the world. His efforts have since expanded to more than 140 training centers across the globe. Many gyms offer self-defense classes, but when you want to train under true leaders and innovators in Krav Maga, certified Krav Maga Worldwide training centers are the only option.
Although Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) has a tight learning curve, especially regarding the sticks, it’s definitely one of the most potent arts I have ever practiced. The knife fighting is ever developing since new ways to cut and defend with a knife are constantly incorporated into the syllabus. They even have legal live knife fights to the death in the Philippines.
The multi-layer approach is back-up. To be more specific it is having options that prevent you from ending up in that situation. Including, not going parachute jumping in the first place, but if you do, knowing how to pack your chute so it will open. By having these layers, you have control and influence anywhere along the process. It is also knowing the further down that path you go, the more extreme the danger and the more likely you are to lose control of the situation.
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..
Beyond the despicable efforts to blame the victim and not the alleged gun-toting racist charged with the crimes, Cotton’s assertion reflects a common and romanticized argument by the gun lobby. If we were all armed, we would all be safe, an argument as devoid of humanity as it is of logic.
