Whats everyone favorite self defense technique? My favorite self defense technique is irmi nage.
Rear naked choke, because in the one real fight I've been in, it allowed me to restrain my attacker without any significant injury to either of us.
I have been liking good clinch work. Just because it sets me up nicely.
Just getting this sort of nice position.
Very cool, I like how Lenny does his irmi nage.
Avoiding the conflict.
Anyone that saves my butt
A large knock on the head, preferably with the heavy end of a large shillelagh; by far my favorite hand weapon.
Sorry, I don't have a favorite. In the Hapkido I studied, defense is type of attack specific.
Awareness. Being aware of the people around you, the environment, the situation... The more aware you are, the easier it is to avoid the situation or if thats not possible, the more aware you are gives you the most options.
The best self defense advice I can give... pull your head out of your cell phone.
Can't say I have a favorite but for being aware of the every changing situations and just not being there.
But are several movements I tend to use often. Here is a piece from a old vhs video I made a long time ago.
Was unable to post it directly so here is a link to it on FB. I apologize for it being grainy.
Simple strategy - if your opponent has no leg on the ground, he will fall. You can then take off.
- Hook your opponent's leading leg into your arm.
- Hook his back leg off the ground.
Headbutt followed by whatever is there.
Re-stomping the groin.
I have two favorites.
1 - Avoiding the conflict whenever possible.
2 - Massive, overwhelming numbers of backup.
I like the way you think
I was given this advice once by an old black belt.
1st thing you do in a fight is headbutt the other guy right in the bridge of the nose. 95% of people will lose the will to fight when you do that.
The other 5%.....well you better pack a lunch because it’s gonna get ugly.
I love them, but I find them extremely limited in their scope. Mostly only good as the opening salvo, and even there they are limited by height of the opponent.
Once the fight is on, you're not often in the right position. And fights don't last too long.
But like the three bears porridge, if things are just right....oooh.
I have favorite techniques, but I don't have a favorite self-defense technique - that's just too variable for me to even consider. My favorite technique over the last decade is probably Peel-off (in more recognizable terms to most folks, the entry is similar to some versions of shiho nage, and the finish is close to a variant of kote gaeshi). It has a nice flow, and looks complicated, though it's pretty simple in action. It covers some important principles of control, and is pretty dramatic-looking in practice (in application, it'd look less interesting - it turns into a destruction instead of a throw).
Now that is truly a Jack reacher philosophy lol
I always thought yubi dori was a very effective technique.123
