When you practice martial arts, you understand how to handle a situation and protect yourself. You can fight, it does not mean you will let someone attack you. If you do so, that will be a mistake.
Today I am going to share my thoughts and opinions about a particular attack. Let's watch this video first to understand the situation. I respect all martial artists. Here I'm sharing my opinion.
Common sense can be applied in any situation. If you sense that someone is going to attack you, you should be more careful. You will not let the attacker attack you easily. That's the first line of defense. If you watch the video, you see the attacker has already pushed him. So in a situation like this, you can expect the attacker will keep attacking you.
When you make a distance from the attacker, keep an eye on him so that you see the attacker's move. If you turn back like you watched in the video, the attacker will usually attack you from behind. You give him the opportunity to do that.
You can turn back and go from there, if you are able to make a certain distance from the attacker where the attacker cannot attack you easily. Until then, keep an eye on the attacker and move back.
It is good to drop your weight when the attacker grabs you from behind aka, bear hug. But when you jump and then put your weight down, the attacker might lift you up if he is strong enough. In that situation, you can step one leg to the side, make the distance between your legs, and put your weight down.
You can do elbow strikes as you watched in the video, but the attacker can move his head as a defense, and you might find it hard to hit him. What works best for you depends on the situation.
If you can, you can suddenly get down and grab the attacker's one leg and pull that between your legs. Or, you can hit the attacker's toes with your heel and then get down. It works better when you don't let the attacker understand what you are about to do.
So what would you do in a situation like this? Please feel free to share your thoughts in the comment section. Thank you so much for reading this post.
Stay safe. Always be happy!
