The weapons you have!

First of all, REMEMBER THIS: There is no such thing as a fair or unfair attacker.

During karate tournaments there are judges. They stop all illegal elbow strikes, groin and knee kicks etc. Even in boxing they stop the fight for biting etc.

On the street though, there are no judges, bells, timers or rules. The person or persons attacking you are not going to give you a chance to get back up on your feet, pick your knife or give you a chance to catch your breath.

There is no “honor” among thieves or street gangs or attackers! Remember this!

You must understand that your attacker can do just about anything! But what is more important to understand it that you have this advantage too. You can also do anything to hurt your opponent since there are no rules! Use this. Do anything and everything to hurt your opponent as badly as possible.

To understand this a little better, you should understand the weapons you have. “Fists” and “feet” are just a few of the obvious weapons you have.

You have MANY other weapons. Mike Tyson might have got in trouble for biting in the boxing ring, but on the street, your teeth can be an excellent weapon. When using your teeth, take as big a bite as possible and hang on tight. 

I know, this may seem like a very “gruesome” thing to do now. However, in a life or death situation, this could end up being the only thing that will save you. So I repeat again, take as big a bite as possible and hang on tight.   

Another good solid weapon is your elbow. They are great for hitting an opponent in the head, over the kidneys, groin and various other parts of the body. Don’t forget your knees either.

Fingers are often forgotten when thinking about weapons. They seem so fragile and weak but they can often be effective when used to scratch or gouge face, eyes and throat.

Also remember your head can be used as a weapon itself by slamming it into the nose and mouth of an attacker.

You also have other weapons that may be close to hand. These can be something like a heavy purse or flowerpot. Other possibilities are a set of keys, a pencil or screwdriver, a glass bottle, piece of broken glass, good sized rock or even a coat or jacket that could be thrown to trap a weapon.
Practice looking around yourself in different areas and try to think of uses for the items at hand. Do this on a regular basis so your mind will be able to spot them quickly if needed. You want to practice this enough so that is becomes instinctual.
