Welcome back to Self Defense Situation - What Do You Do? - Part 32. In this series of posts, we analyze and talk about different situations and what you can do to protect yourself in that situation. If you have good intentions and work hard for something, you will see the result sooner or later. The cloud can hide the Sun for a while, but it will appear again sooner or later.
We go through different challenging situations in life. If you can avoid a fight, please do so. When you fight for self defense, your focus is to protect yourself. You are not fighting to prove something or show off. We can avoid many things that can lead to a fight.
Today we are going to share something interesting. You will see both guys are fighting. Well, we are not going to judge who is a good guy. Let's watch this video. All video credit goes to Nick Drossos.
It looks like two guys are in a fight in a formal way. Fighting with someone to prove something or show off is not a good idea. The way the guy with a black t-shirt moves, you can guess he might have some background. Pay attention to his footwork. It gives a clear signal. So in a situation like this, if there are no other options and you have to fight, you should be careful.
Just throwing a couple of punches does not scare him. You see, the guy did punch before throwing a punch with the rear hand. The guy with the black t-shirt waits for this. He moves back as a defense and hit him right away. And the guy falls on the ground.
So why did the guy fall on the ground?
When the guy stepped forward to punch, his body balance was not on his both legs. You see that the whole body balance is on this front leg. As a result, he could not handle the strike and fell on the ground.
There is something you should not do in a street fight, that is, get on the ground and grab the attacker like this. He might have some friends who can come and attack you instantly.
