Top Things to Train
« on: August 24, 2008, 07:49:13 AM »

I'm sure this has been addressed somewhere on this forum, but I'm not sure where and want updated opinions anyway.

While we can train scenarios and techniques from now until eternity, I think it's most prudent, for most students, to hit the highest probability attacks hardest/most often.  In addition to all the other stuff we train, I've been thinking about automatically repeating one of the top 5 in each session we do, just for students to get incredibly comfortable with the "core" attacks.

With that in mind, what do ya'll recommend for the top 5 or 10 ways we men will most likely be attacked (unarmed)?  What about women?  I know some out there have a better sense, stastically speaking, of how we'll be attacked.

I guess my list for men would look something like this, not necessarily in order:

1.  Unexpected shove/posturing/sucka punch
2.  Wild haymaker swing
3.  Some sort of grab--lapel with punch, double lapel
4.  Multiple, wild swings moving forward.
5.  Attempted tackle/takedown

Are weapons entering in higher on the list, on average.  If so, what sort of attacks?  I'd assume some sort of slashing or stabbing jack knife (or kitchen knife if your wife is pissed at ya).  Of course, he may have a buddy near, too.


What are your thoughts?

Most commonly you will be attacked with the assailant's hands, so here's a good place to start.  With the addition of number 5, you get to experience both the role of the ambushee and the ambusher.

1) Right Straight- outside entry
2) Right Straight- inside entry
3) Right Straight Lapel/Throat Grab- split entry
4) Big Right Hook- inside entry
5) Verbal Assault- preemptive entry
6) Big Left Hook- inside entry
7) Left Straight Lapel/Throat Grab- split entry
8) Left Straight- inside entry
9) Left Straight- outside entry

You can practice this s as a statue drill  and then feed one for one isolated.  All of these should initially be delivered through a posturing street stance.

The next step is piece mealing combat scenarios together utilizing the elements from the various levels.  The elements are:

1) strikes
2) kicks
3) choke points
4) takedowns
5) finishes
6) escapes

Depending on your people's level, you can dictate the individual elements or just get them to freelance it.  Eventually, it is all improvised.

Great question and reply!!  I would also add something that Uncle Nicky talks about in his DVD's and I am sure Joe does in his, that is having the person attacked have something in his/her hands when attacked.  Either a beer bottle, water bottle, bag of groceries, suitcase/briefcase, backpack on their back, or computer bag on one shoulder or slung over both.  This will certainly change the dynamic of your scenarios.  Also you can do one where multiple attackers are involved and you have a buddy down and can't leave him.  Hope these help as well!!

Self defence is situational.

So include situation where the bad guy suddenly drops his knife if you point a gun at him.
Where he backs off, because you resist, what can you do, what should you do, how far can you legally go to press your advantage.

Just a few thoughts.

Yes! And you'll get cake and cookies along with Uncle Nicky's special birthday punch. And I already had the advantage because someone bothered me.
And go to the Super Secret Book and look under "How to Handle and Situation Anywhere With Rawhides 12 Step Dance Program" Plus you'll look good doing it! Or maybe some of you will. And then some of you will look like the Grand Marshall at the annual Gay Pride Parade. This year, I'm told, they will be having precision smart car driving. Need I say more?!
