For Lord sake, DO NOT GO FOR THE GROIN. That is the worst thing you can do. My ex was one of those that if you nailed him there accidentally or on
purpose,he would simply get really mad and go after you. My father taught me the 1,2 philosophy,which I in turn taught my boys. 1. cripple. 2.
destroy. Sounds simple doesn't it? He was on pork chop hill during Korean war and was in hand to hand combat with the enemy. He was a former street
fighter that ended up in Japan during his tour,he was being treated there and ended up going around Japan and talked to masters in Bushido at their
dojos.They compared philosophies on fighting and then he came home. When I was 4 he decided I would never be very big,(he was right,I only made 5'2)
but said I could and would defend myself if I needed too.
First,the cripple part. You look for ANY weakness on the enemy and strike out at it to try to cripple them up so they are unable to fight.If you
don't have time to find it or don't see one,you make one. The weakest part of the human body is the throat,NOT the groin. You lash out at the throat
and hit AS HARD AS YOU CAN. If you crush their throat,oh well you get to now run away. Thing is,women need to be taught you DON'T PLAY NICE. The
attacker sure won't. You hit like your going through to the other side of their neck.
2.destroy part.Once down on the ground,if you are unsure if they will be able to pursue you are not,you now go into destroy mode. You proceed to kick
and stomp as hard as you can,leaving them screaming and squirming trying to get away from you. You want them afraid,you want them to run. You want
them to go away and crawl in a gutter to die. It sounds harsh,but you stand a better chance of surviving the encounter this way. Most attackers go
after small women in the hopes of having very little fight with their victim,if the victim puts up a HUGE fight,this is exactly what they don't want.
They then feel it is better to flee and victimize another day.
Also there are certain tricks that are helpful to learn in case they get blindsided yet are still conscious. If someone grabs your throat,easy way to
get out of it is to grab their little finger of their hand and twist the hand off your throat,do this before you start to go unconscious or your
outcome is nil. And being female,chances are that you will be smaller than your attacker, DO NOT try to put your weight up against theirs,bad
move.They have size and weight on them to defeat you(plus a prior plan of attack that you don't),use that weight to your ADVANTAGE. If they run at
you,misdirect their movement away from you to where you want them. Off balance and out of control of themselves. Wing Chun was a martial art that was
developed by a small female monk for protection,it was used by Bruce Lee,you don't need to be very large to protect yourself. If you misdirect their
motion,chances are that they will go down by their weight alone. A large object in motion tends to stay in motion.
Being small is not detrimental in a fight,you need to use your size to your advantage.Thats all fighting is about,your attacker is using their
advantages and you have to use yours while using their weakness' against them. Being small you tend to be able to move quicker than a larger opponent
(though don't always bank on this,Mike Tyson comes to mind here). You need to be a 'thinking' fighter. Be looking for that advantage,that
mistake,that weakness. It will serve you well. I was born and raised in Ferguson Mo.and I NEVER fought anyone my size. I was only 5' at the time and
there wasn't many people my size,those that were didn't fight. So my attackers were always larger than me. When I first started fighting, I lost a
few fights which taught me well what to do and not to do.Those are the harsh lessons of life.After that I never lost another one. I got in fights
often enough to practice fighting and keeping in top shape. WOMEN,this is for you. If for no other reason,keep yourself in shape. I don't mean so you
look good in that slinky dress,but in case you end up attacked,your weight and out of shape muscles don't keep you from defending yourself.Very
important,you never know when it will happen to you,attackers look for someone that can't fight.
Mainly girls,change your way of thinking. ALLS FAIR IN LOVE AND WAR. Anyone that will attack you is not in love with you. Attack back like you mean to
kill them! No being nice,no being fair,as we used to say on the streets,
"TAKE NO PRISONERS,SHOW NO MERCY".
I have watched these videos on self defense for women and cringed,9 times out of 10 they are made by some guy,or used some guys moves. You CAN NOT
fight like a larger person if your not larger. Use what you have and work with it. It will feel more natural to you and will become second nature to
you. I hope this helps.
