You might be wondering whether self-defense and martial arts techniques will really work against a bigger, stronger attacker.
A lot of what people learn in karate, kung fu, mixed martial arts, boxing, etc. would absolutely fail in a real street fight against someone twice your size.
It’s just the God’s honest truth.
But even a bad ass 265 lb barroom brawler has his weak points. It isn’t theory – it is plain science… In fact, the street fighting technique you’re about to read has been used to topple one of the biggest giants of the old school UFC “bloodsport” days.
“Tank” Abbot was the meanest looking barroom brawler biker dude you’d ever hate to be on the wrong side of.
About 265 lbs of muscle and fat mixed together in a nasty soup of “I don’t give a sh#t!”. In bars, he would get drunk and crush skulls just for the fun of it.
Except that Tank had one weak area that smaller attackers used to EASILY defeat him no matter how much he tried to defend Himself.
Here’s how it works…
The fleshy part of the outside of your upper leg (midway on your upper, outer thigh) is filled with a bunch of unprotected nerves.
Knowing this, a few of Tank’s smaller opponents simply took their shin and drove it sideways right into this soft, fleshy explosion of nerves.
His size actually worked against him as there was no way for him to move fast enough to defend against this sneak attack.
The effects were immediate… and devastating!
Tank’s leg instantly weakened and you could see the defeat in his once-vicious eyes. He hobbled and gave up, realizing he had no more “structure” to put his massive frame to use.
He was powerless!
THIS is how we need to think when facing a bigger, stronger attacker. Don’t think “punch” like most people do – it will just bounce off of the giant thug in front of you and piss him off.
Instead, a dirty “low blow” where you drive your shin through the outside part of your attacker’s thigh will send him to the ground like a bag of dirt.
(Think of it like you’re literally chopping off both his legs with your shin.)
Look, it’s not some “pretty” move like a lot of those martial arts will tell you to do.
And that’s the point…
When it comes to defending yourself against someone who is much bigger and stronger than you, you can’t use fancy martial arts techniques.
The pretty stuff works in tournaments, where there are judges and no desire to actually damage your opponent.
You need to understand that the common street criminal, loudmouth bully, and predator looking to target you isn’t going to follow any “rules”. He’s going to fight dirty.
THAT is what “real fighting” looks like on the street.
