Do You Need To Attack The Eyes?

When you fight or make any move for self defense, you have to do that based on the situation. Is that a serious situation? Is your life in danger? Is there any way you can avoid the situation?

There are some questions you have in your mind. And your moves should be different based on those factors. So do you really need to attack the eyes?

We all know that eyes are very sensitive. If something hits on the eyes, you cannot see and suddenly you might lose your balance. If you hit the attacker's eyes, it can make some serious damage.

You can strike other parts of the body. Maybe you have to fight to get out of the situation, but you do not want to make some serious damage, so you will not strike to the eyes?

If you want to do eye jab and you use two fingers to strike, that might miss the target. Instead, you can use all fingers when you strike. There is a high chance to hit the eyes. There are some other things you have to keep in mind when you strike to the eye. To do eye jab, you need to be in a punching range.

Most people move away reflexively if they see something is going to hit on the eyes. If the attacker moves his head, you cannot hit the target. Or, if he lowers his head, your finger will hit on his head. You will get hurt since your fingers hit against the head.

So you have to be careful to strike to the attacker's eyes. If it is a grappling or choking situation, you can easily reach the attacker's eyes and put pressure. In this situation, it can be very effective for self defense.

What you are trying to say is detaching a cornea will stop any attacker. Regardless of size or skill.

The nerves involved are not able to be over ridden. Add to it the blinding pain and auto kinetic responses? The victim is helpless.

UFC fighter was going a seminar and picking on a very small person. Was instilling a flinch reaction onto the partner. He moved fast and only feinted. However his partner put up his hands to defend. An eye poke had this huge professional fighter crawling on the floor and screaming.

Next. Eye damage is nearly assured. You can't train this as only one accident and your student loses half of their vision permanently. Unless you have surgery.

and it is cumulative. So that damage can add up.

It is better to avoid a fight, let alone eye jab. Yes, I agree with you. It can make some serious damage. So don't just attack the eyes. And if you cannot do hit the target, there is a high chance, you will get hurt on your fingers.
