You expect that the attackers will not have any weapons. That's unlikely to happen. The attackers can have weapons and you have to know how to defend yourself in a situation like that. If the attacker attacks you with a stick, and you don't defend that properly, you will end up getting injured.
Welcome back to Self Defense Situation # 130. Every situation is different and you cannot fit one thing in every situation. What works in one situation, that might not work in another situation. When you fight for self defense, your move should be based on the situation.
Today I'm going to talk about what not to do as a self defense technique when someone attacks you with a stick. I'll share a video for you to watch. Then we will talk about what specific thing you should not do that shows in the video.
I'd like to make it clear that when I say some self defense techniques are not effective, that's my opinion. It does not mean I do not respect someone who shows that technique or his/her other self defense techniques are not effective for self defense.

When the attacker is going to hit straight to your head with a stick, you need to use your hands, but if you do what shows in the video, you will get hurt on your hand pretty bad. Yes, the stick can slip. The fact is, it will hit on your hand instead of the head.
The attacker will not strike you once, if the attacker cannot hit on your head, he can hit on your head again. In case your hand is broken, you cannot use it to defend yourself like that.
So what can you do to defend yourself against stick attack to your head?
You can move to the side. What happens is as soon as you move to the side, you are getting out of the attacking line. Now you can use your hands to parry and grab his hand with the stick.
Then you can take his stick away or do knee charge and strike him. Even if you cannot parry, the attacker will not able to hit you at that time because you are moving out of the attacking line. I would not recommend standing at the same spot and using your hands like that to defend yourself against a stick attack.
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!
