I’ve only been in 2 fights, the benefits of being large at a young age I guess.
But fwiw, at a Bas Rutten seminar, I asked him if you can’t get out of a fight with someone, what should you do when they attack you first. This is assuming a bar fight of some type where you’re not going up against a trained opponent.
Like the other poster said, he said to react. When they throw the first punch, his favorite move was to put your head down and purposely intercept their punch with the top of your skull, which is much harder than the bones in your hand and wrist and can easily break.
He continued by saying its never expected, it will hurt them quite a bit, and then you can counter-strike from a distance, bull-rush them and go for headbutt, hook, nuts, whatever, or run away.
( Or, for those of you who have his tapes, you can hit them with a leeeeever shot!)
Man, these kind of threads are always hilarious.
BTW. The RNC doesn’t attack the throat. It attacks the carotid arteries.
People need to watch less martial arts movies.
Throat death punch… Hilarious.
