When you see someone has a stick and he is moving forward to attack you, the sooner you stop the attacker the better. Maybe you think you can run and get out of there. But sometimes there is no place to run. So you cannot run and get out of there.
Can you step back as a defense against a stick attack?
Yes, you can. If you move back and defend yourself time, that's good. But do you think that the attacker will stop attacking you with the stick?
If the attacker misses you, there is a high chance that he will attack you again. So what would you do then? And how long are you going to move back?
When your life is in danger, you want to do something that can save your life. You will not like to make some fancy moves. So the goal is to end the fight fast.
If you want to defend yourself against the stick attacker, you need to move forward and use your hands to defend yourself. Your hands are supposed to contact with the attacker's hands. Do not try to hit the stick to block, you will end up breaking your hands.
In case the attacker swings the stick to the side, you can step forward to the side of the attacker, parry, and grab the attacker's hand. Then you can do knee charge, elbow strike, or sweep his leg.
So what should you do if you move back as a defense against a stick attack?
If you move back and the attacker misses you, that's fine. But do not give him another chance to attack you. As soon as you move back and the attacker misses you, step forward quickly and grab his hand. Then you can attack him. You can kick his leg and make you fall on the ground. You can disarm his weapon.
You have a lot of options when you are in control. You can watch this video to get a clear idea about what to do once you move back. Video credit goes to Martial Techie. Please feel free to share your thoughts and experience in the comment section.
