Action in extreme situations

Breadcrumbs EN

The fight on the street is fleeting and does not require a complete "cut" of the opponent, i.e. a clean victory. Usually it is enough just to shoot down aggression with a couple of set blows, or to delay the fight until the appearance of patrol policemen.

The applicability of fighting skills in the stalls on the street is also very questionable. A fighter trying to strangle his opponent while lying on the dirty asphalt is not convincing. In this case, it is assigned the role of a soccer ball for the bully's friends.

In reality, this is just as frivolous as attempting a roundhouse kick in a vandamme-style jump. A drawing (scene) of a real street fight usually looks like this: demoralization of the victim with blows to the face, then a series of deafening blows to the head, sometimes to the body. Then the victim is felled to the ground, most often with a push, a jerk, less often with a footrest, but almost never with a throw over the hip or chest, and other techniques that require a certain skill. Finally, finish off the legs.

What to do on the street? There are their own rules. there.

  1. the most important thing is constant combat readiness. Most often, hand-to-hand athletes are beaten on the street precisely because they are not ready to fight at a particular moment. This applies to both physical and psychological factors. No one on the street will let you properly tune in or stretch your muscles and joints before a fight. You should always be in a certain average physical condition, as the peak form of athletes always alternates with failures, which is absolutely unacceptable on the street. Morale is even more difficult. Being ready for a fight is always very difficult. In a person with an unbalanced mind, this can even lead to delusions of persecution. But if you are calm for your brains-be ready!
  2. Forget the word "nobility", chivalry in a fight with scum - not nobility, but stupidity. Make it a rule to finish off the defeated. Your task is to make sure that the enemy can not continue the fight. And, quite well, if he can't fight at all. You will have to be cruel. Don't spare your opponent when your health, or even your life, is at stake. Try to cause a traumatic shock (blow). There are no prohibited techniques, which means that you should use exactly the actions that are not allowed in sports. Bite, hit in the groin, throat, break your fingers, tear your hair, poke in the eyes (and not with a "fork" of two fingers - you will not get hit, and you risk damaging your fingers. It is better to spread your hand and hit the face from top to bottom, as" extinguish " a volleyball). And always apply full force-the blows should be accentuated. If you catch an opponent on a painful grip-break, do not wait for him to Pat you on the back. Blocks should only be hard. One of the principles of ningjutsu is useful - the block is not perceived as a separate category, but as a normal blow, only applied to the attacking limb of the enemy.
  3. Don't be afraid! Fear shackles the body and slows down the brain, leading to the loss of skills honed, it would seem, to automatism. The best cure for fear is the experience of street fights. A deep yawn soothes well.
  4. "Not to be afraid" is a broad concept. You need to learn not to be afraid to hit hard. Many (a lot of people) cannot bring themselves to cross this barrier erected by civilization. Don't be afraid to cause injury. Don't be afraid to get weak injuries yourself, but avoid heavy ones. Don't be afraid of blood. Don't be afraid of pain. Keep cool. Only then will you be able to respond adequately to the actions of the enemy, use the environment meaningfully and hit accurately. Speaking of accuracy. You only need to hit specific points, vulnerabilities, and not in any gedan or abstract average level.
  5. Develop confidence in your actions. You must know exactly the consequences of your blows. The problem there is the other extreme - overestimation of his own abilities. A confident fighter is as much a potential victim as an insecure one. So evaluate yourself soberly.
  6. The versatility of the skills. The owner of a black belt can lose a duel to a simple village guy, if you have to fight in felt boots and waist-deep in snow. The fight in the Elevator or car, on the stairs, in the water, in a moving bus will have a completely different character.

CONCLUSION: those who are familiar with a large number of martial arts and are not too lazy to train not only in the gym, but also in other, sometimes the most unexpected places have a better chance to win in any conditions. Narrow specialization, even honed to perfection, is of little use in everyday life. At least to have a heel or two polished "crowns" is very useful.
