Street Combat – This Ain’t No Game! Pt 3

from Survival Blog:

With a few exceptions, it takes years and years of training to become proficient at defending yourself with nothing but your bare hands and feet. The “average” person on the street isn’t prepared to undertake this sort of lengthy and time-consuming training process. So, what are the options?

I’ve been involved in the martial arts for close to 30 years, now. If there are any shortcuts or secrets, I sure haven’t discovered them. I’m continually amazed at the number of people who come to me for self-defense training with the same question: “How long will it take for me to get my Black Belt?” I wish I had a dollar for every person that asked me that question. I’d be sitting on Easy Street.

    Excellent article with a lot of great advice in it. I studied martial arts for a time so was never an expert at it but I trained with a guy who was… a former US Marine who studied under 2 masters on Okinawa. He was a devastating street fighter and not at all into competition training or flashy Hollywood moves. His motto was “Those who sweat more in training, bleed less in combat”. That applied whether one was training with rifles, pistols, knives, fists, or boots.

    But, just to poke a little friendly fun at Pat…

    “While living with a relative on the near southwest side of Chicago, I once again had the misfortune of facing a knife-wielding suspect.”

    A suspect is someone not known to have committed a crime but who is thought to have done so. When faced with an armed and aggressive attacker, he is not a suspect but a “perp”. There is NO doubt whatever whether or not this guy is a criminal because he is demonstrating that right before your eyes. 😉

    “This walking refrigerator stood 6′ 8” tall and weighed-in at over 640lbs. He was billed as the “world’s largest athlete”. If you saw his size, you wouldn’t have much argument with this claim.”

    Holy cow! This guy was H-U-G-E! I have a very good friend named Leroy who is 6’7″ tall and weighs 345 lbs. He is a BIG boy and one of the few people I know who makes my 6’2″ height and 225 lb weight seem small. I simply cannot imagine a guy his height but who is packing another 300 lbs. My technique for fighting this guy would be to run like hell. lol

    “Obviously, the bigger they are, the harder they fall!”

    Obviously? Heh heh… yeah, and very often the harder they are to make fall too!
