Here are four instant and basic self-defense moves, which are very adaptable to a variety of situations. The first is the knee strike. Targets include the groin, thigh, and even abdomen. The knee is a simple direct movement, where you strike with the kneecap in a thrusting motion. You can use this move in any frontal assault very easily. When you practice this move, perform repetitions with the front and rear knee, as well as the right and left. Although you should get this move down in a couple dozen reps, additional reps can only help.

The next move is the eye jab. Whether you are attacked on the ground, from the side, or from the front, this move works wonders. If there is some space between you and the attacker, simply flick your fingers at the person’s eyes. A minimal touch on the target will give you enough time to escape or follow up with one of these other moves. If you get tackled down to the ground, this move can adapt to an eye gouge. Realizing you would only do this move if your life depended on it, simply plunge your thumbs into the attackers eye sockets. If you are on the ground, continue to gouge until you can get up.

The third move is an elbow strike. Targets for this tool can range from an attackers face to their abdomen. To complete this move, bend your arm at the point where your elbow protrudes. As you strike

with this tool, you must complete a downward strike, aiming for the side of the face (assuming the person is in front of you). If the person attacks from behind, it may depend on where your arms are. If they are pinned down low, go for the stomach and ribs, if the attacker grabs you around the waist, perform a rear elbow to the face. The point is to try a number of positions, and see how versatile and effective this move is.

Finally, there is the head butt. Many people squint their eyes at this one, or think it may hurt them too much to perform it. However, take a look at the surface area of your fist, and compare it to the much larger surface area of the top of your head. I also want you to realize that a person’s fist is made up of dozens upon dozens of little easily breakable bones. The skull, on the other hand, is among the strongest structures in the human body. Therefore, if we have to use it, it is a great tool to strike an attacker’s face. Think of a person grabbing you from behind or in front, and then picking you off the ground. You can’t elbow strike them, kick them, get your hands free to eye jab them, or even stomp on their foot. The only striking tool you may have is your own head. You would want to use as much of the top of it as possible, as this is the thickest and strongest part. Furthermore, aim for his face, which is the weakest and most vulnerable part.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]
