When in my teens someone told me that if I was being threatened and thought that it was going to come to blows, spit in the agressors eyes as a distraction and then kick them between the legs really hard and run away.
For years I thought it was quite a silly thing but now I wonder if actually it would be a simple and effective thing to do?
Hi all. In our syllabus, we have a set of techniques for defending against various knife attacks. While they are fun to practice in the company of trusted fellow students, with fake knives, I wonder if they are practical at all, or worse, if they are counterproductive.
Apologies for the graphic detail that this interview goes into, however, it is a very open and honest interview with a man who faced the most horrific events any person (police or otherwise) can, and survived:
I was looking at an old self defence manual the other day and the moves presented in the book just seemed to be quite ridiculous. While we do train self defence at our club I wouldn't consider myself an expert by any means.
This has got to be my favourite from the book. Maybe it could work in some situations.
