Let’s face it, it’s not a perfect world with sunshine and rainbows! Evil does exist and no matter how conscious or careful you are, there are always chances that you might end up in an unwanted situation.
With the growing impatience and anger in people in today’s world, there are more chances of you getting caught up in a situation that you would totally want to avoid. It can be as simple as a road rage incident or as complicated as a mugging or kidnapping attempt. What should you do in such a situation? Sure, letting things take its course is one way to go, but it won’t always guarantee your safety.
Here are some basic self-defense techniques which are really simple to learn and will help you in messy situations:
This move is an easy way to stun your attacker which will give you ample time to decide your further course of action, i.e. to fight or flight. To do this, cup your hand and slam it into your attacker’s ears to send a blast of air, which will pressurize their ear canal. It’ll definitely stun your opponent and will throw them off balance.
Doesn’t matter if you’ve seen all of Mohammed Ali’s matches or if you’re an ardent follower of Ronda Rousey, if you’ve not been trained in self-defense avoid using complicated moves. Chances are, that you’ll end up wasting your energy in worthless punches. Instead, use calculated amount of force to hit your opponent at strategic points.
