Where To Strike and Hit In a Fight

Do you remember when you play football in your childhood?

You were running after the ball. Football was close to you and you tried to kick the ball. It seems the ball just hates you. lol... You were trying hard and looking for the football, but you could not be able to hit it.

You might be wondering that today I am going to talk about football. Well, just shared what we did as a kid playing football with our friends. Let's go back to martial arts. Likewise football, maybe you are looking for where to hit your opponent. You are confused and not finding anywhere to strike and hit.

When you fight for self-defense, the attacker will not tell you, hey, come and hit me here, will he? In case the attacker tells you something like that, it means you will be in a trap if you make your move the way the attacker expects and tells you to do.

Strike and hit the closest target. You can kick to the attacker's leg. If you move forward or the attacker is close to you, you can hit the upper part of the body. You can hit the solar plexus, ribs, or any other part of the body that is close to you. You are not searching, you are making your move based on the current situation.

Making some fancy moves, moving your hands and legs here and there look good on camera. If you do those moves in a fight for self-defense, you will not look good on camera, I mean in the mirror. ;)

Your strike should be direct, simple, and to the point. Of course, you will make your move in a way the attacker cannot predict. Otherwise, he can defend that easily.

I'm going to end the post right here. Thank you so much for reading this post. Please feel free to share your thoughts and experience in the comment section.

Stay safe. Always be happy!

It is always useful to know something and never need it, than to need it and not know it.
Without a doubt, knowing how to defend oneself is necessary.
Kicking the knee of a possible criminal who wants to assault you, will give the necessary time to run and get out of that situation, no doubt good post.

Agree with you. That's why, when it comes to self-defense, use those moves that are useful. Making unnecessary moves that only look pretty will not help anyone in a situation like this. Thank you @kraken99 for your comment!

There is some good advice ! I hope that I will never need this 😅
Maybe it's lacking some more precise exemples ?

Hope no one has to fight for self-defense. Unfortunately, if that happens, it is better to prepare yourself. If we get into training, it can be shown precious moves with example. Thank you so much @ykretz for your feedback!
