Mind and Skills 3

When your in a vulnerable spot in a fight you need to react not think quickly and use the quickest techniques to get yourself out of that bad position.  A vulnerable spot could be in a chair, on the ground, up against a wall or in a small area like a bathroom or some type of vehicle all you need to have is knowledge of how people will attack you no matter what position your in.  The simplest way to defend yourself is the best way no one should use the most difficult techniques like throws or take downs even trapping like in "Wing Chun" might cause you to get your arms tied up.

Being in a vehicle like a car to me is the hardest place to use self defense because it doesn't have a lot of space to move around.  The best defense in any vehicle is to simple make sure no attacker gets in it after you or is in it when you get to it.  When going to or getting out of your car give a good look around someone could be close and pull out a weapon or just try to strike you and the best thing to do is use striking and parries combined with doing whatever it takes.

Being on the ground is another dangerous spot you never want to be off your feet because you won't have much defense.  The best defense if you have someone fighting you on the ground is to do whatever it takes be as deadly as possible combined with fast continuous movement to try an get from under them and back to your feet.  If you are on your back on the ground and your opponent is standing in front of you simply keep moving and kicking their legs while trying to get up.

Doing whatever it takes simply means to do anything using no rules limitations and having no boundaries people must learn to not hold back anything that can help them and at the same time learn to relax at all times like nothing bad is happening and flow from one useful move to another just as long as it helps you.

  1. Interesting posts with some good points. Enclosed spaces can work against your assailant just as much as it does for you. If you can minimize the number of angles of approach, you make it a little easier. In a multiple attacker situation, getting one assailant in the way of another so as to avoid simultaneous attacks from 2 angles can be of huge benefit, and with a little luck, one attacker may inadvertently click the other. The staging ground for a fight is hugely important in determining the outcome.
