  • When it comes to self defense training, there are
    several basic martial arts techniques at the
    core of every good program.

Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Strikes and Blows
  • When it comes to self defense training strikes
    and blows are some of the most common movements.
    Generally speaking, striking refers to your
    standup offensive strategies. They are your
    kicks, punches, head butts, knees, elbows and
    other attacks. At their core, strikes are
    designed to be your tools for aggression. They
    help you wear down your opponent.

Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Blocks
  • Youre going to have to accept that fact that
    your opponent is going to strike back in self
    defense training. One of the martial arts
    techniques that you can use to minimize the blow
    is a block. Blocking is the act of stopping your
    opponents strike before it is completed. The arms
    are most commonly used for blocking, but your
    legs will be used sometimes too.

5
Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Stance and Footwork
  • Sometimes footwork is underrated, but the best
    martial artists work day in and day out perfect
    their footwork skills. You can tell the
    difference between an average fighter and a great
    fighter by checking out his footwork. Your
    stances are important to, as they are where you
    derive your support and balance during a match.

6
Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Takedowns
  • Takedowns occur when you actually bring your
    opponent to the ground. There are many different
    ways to accomplish a takedown. You can try using
    strikes and blows. Wrestling moves can also bring
    an opponent down during a fight.

7
Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Throws
  • Throws are actually a kind of takedown, but there
    more defensive than they are offensive. During a
    throw, you maneuver to use your opponents own
    strength against him. The end result is that your
    opponent is brought swiftly to the ground.

8
Basic Martial Arts Techniques
Submissions
  • Choke holds and joint locks are examples of
    martial arts techniques known as submissions.
    They are an important part of self defense
    training. The goal is to force your opponent to
    give up or submit. If he doesnt give up,
    however, serious injuries can result.

9
  • For every martial arts discipline the type of
    techniques employed will vary. From Kung Fu to
    Karate to Tae Kwon Do, each one emphasizes
    different strategies and specific techniques, but
    most of them fall into one the previous six
    categories. When you lean these tools, you build
    a solid foundation in self defense and martial
    arts training that can be used whether you
    compete professionally or as an amateur.

10
Self Defense Training Tips
  • Sometimes bad things happen to good people. And
    while we dont go out of our way to find trouble,
    trouble just seems to find us. In this day and
    age, it is important for each of us to learn
    something about self defense training. It can
    help us protect ourselves and our loved ones.

11
Self Defense Training Tips
Keep a Clear Head
  • It is important that you stay calm and use your
    head when danger strikes. When your bodys
    adrenaline kicks in, you will notice that things
    to happen to you in slow motion. If you stay calm
    and avoid panicking, your brain will work quickly
    and it will seem as though you have plenty of
    time to decide on the appropriate course of
    action.

12
Self Defense Training Tips
Look for Common Weapons
  • There will almost always be something around you
    that you can use as a weapon to defend yourself
    from your attacker. You dont need years of
    martial arts training to figure out that a rolled
    up magazine, your keys, a can of hairspray, or
    even a can of green beans can be an effective
    tool for helping you fight back. When you find an
    object that is hard and heavy, the best way to
    use it is to throw it against bone.

13
Self Defense Training Tips
Think Triangles
  • One of the worst things you can do during a fight
    is move in a straight line forward, back,
    right, or left. However, this is what we
    naturally tend to do during an altercation.
    Instead, you should move your body in a triangle.
    When you move at angles, you actually step out of
    your attackers intended path. You change the
    entire angle and positioning of your body.

14
Self Defense Training Tips
Dont Make Yourself a Target in the First Place
  • Avoid being in dark places alone, and keep your
    head up and your eyes peeled for anything or
    anyone that looks suspicious. If you arent
    paying attention to your surroundings, you make
    the ideal candidate for the victim of a mugging
    or assault.

Important Tips
  • Whenever possible, perform a direct
    counter-attack. They are the most effective at
    stopping your opponent.
  • Your best shot at countering an attack is when
    they approach. Many times they will cross one
    foot behind the other to perform a kick. Hit them
    in the moment they move to position.
  • Protect your ribs. You can do this by keeping
    your elbows low all the time.

How to Master Self Defense Techniques 15
Important Tips
  • Practice self defense techniques that can be used
    in lots of different situations. Dont worry
    about memorizing fancy combinations of moves for
    every possible scenario. Concentrate on about
    three to five versatile techniques until you have
    them perfected. Keep your fighting simple.
  • When your opponent throws a punch toward your
    head or upper body, immediately take a shot at
    the part of their body that become vulnerable.

18

Important Tips
  • Similarly, when an opponent tries to take a body
    shot, immediately strike their head.
  • An oncoming kick can be defending by striking
    while your opponent is on one foot with
    compromised balance. It is also impossible for
    them to retreat from their position in time.
  • If you cant get away, step into the punch or
    throw. Its unexpected and you can often jam or
    stifle the strike, minimizing its effectiveness.

19

Important Tips
  • If jamming the attack doesnt work, sidestep to
    avoid contact. Use circle footwork to stay out of
    the line of a combination attack.
  • When you find yourself on the defensive and you
    have to back up, never retreat backward in a
    straight line. It is the worst possible thing you
    can do, as it sets you up for a combo strike.
    Always jam, block, or sidestep.

Important Tips
  • Its more effective to keep your rear hand up. If
    you are hit on an open side there is no way to
    roll out.
  • If your opponent goes for a head strike, lean
    away for pull your shoulder in tightly for
    protection. If they make contact with your jaw,
    the damage could be serious. If you dont protect
    your jaw, its likely your opponent will be able
    to knock you out.

21

    on your toes with your knees bent and your legs

    you to move quickly, no matter what direction you
    need to move.
