Finger-Jab Attack

A finger-jab is a straight arm technique that strikes the eye with the longest finger and you do not need to put any of your body into it like it's a punch all you need is speed and accuracy.  Practice this technique by hanging a peace of paper with eyes drawn on it to build up accuracy.  Practice your finger-jab in combination with any strikes mostly hand techniques and defensive techniques.

Body Blows: Good or Bad

When you try to perform body-shots with punches you leave yourself open to be hit with punches and knee-strikes.  It's best to just have all of your punches target the head, shoulders and chest.  Your knees and kicks are the best to use for a low body attack.

Avoiding The Strikes

Most people know of bobbing and weaving to avoid strikes but you can also avoid strikes by simply moving in the same direction as the technique for example if someone straight punches or kicks you move backwards.

Low Round-House Stopped

A good defense against this attack would be a front stomp-kick to block it or you can simply use footwork and back away quickly. Don't try to use your hand to block this kick that would be very stupid and keep those hands up.

No Pain

The person that you fight may not feel pain but that doesn't mean you can't stop them with some eye jabs and swelling in their legs and arms with strikes.

Street counter for clinch

There's nothing stopping you from kneeing the other guy in the groin or kicking him in the groin.  You are also free to strike with the hands to open areas from the ribs and up plus stomp kicks to the legs to block the knee strikes.

Hair Grab

No matter what position your in for this attack when standing a front, side or back straight-kick to the leg or groin is a good defense.  Bobbing and weaving are good for this but awareness and reaction are always the best defense against anything.
