Self Defense Practice Tips. Hey all. I teach self defense tactics and combat to women 12 years and up. Here are some answers to some of the questions I have seen. I not only teach this stuff but have used it at different crazy points of life so I know what works and what doesnt.
First, play with your own pressure points. Stick 2 fingers in the hole of your throat and you will see how effective it is. Now try inserting your thumbs under the holes behind your earlobes and turn. You can make people go on their toes with a motorcycle twist or your thumbs.
Palm strikes (not closed fists) work excellent against the lower part of the nose, hitting upward, full force. You can throw someone just by taking their head off balance from their feet. Then always finish with a stomp to head or knee. Run BUT ONLY WHEN IT IS SAFE TO RUN. Men can run faster than us.
But finally, mental state is 90% of effective self defense. Learn to get pissed rather than scared when someone violates your space, your body and such. Everyone in my class first says Mike Tyson could easily take a 120 female, until I tell them later that the female is a Rottweiler. Why do you think that is? Hmmm. All the Rott has is teeth.
