In our last post we looked at self defense against a haymaker or a roundhouse punch. This is a commonly used power shot, used to really knock a person's block off.
Today let's look at a simple self defense "counter" against a straight punch or slap. Again ladies, take note that you don't need to make a fist, which can hurt very badly if your hands aren't conditioned properly, to take out the attacker.
This video displays powerful strikes using the palm of the hand as well as knees, which can be launched to the groin, bladder area or stomach. These techniques can be practiced alone or with a partner.
If you don't carry a gun or a self defense deterrent such as Mace pepper spray or tear gas models, then you may want to try these out. See you soon!
