How to fight
1. Attack in a fight
1.1 Take up a fighting stance. If you are going to fight, you need to take a fighting stance. To do this, place your feet shoulder-width apart and bend them slightly at the knees. You need to keep a balance so that it is difficult to knock you to the ground. Be agile. Take small steps to the right and left, and keep your hands in front of your face to defend yourself.
Clench your teeth - this way you will be less likely to get a jaw fracture if you get hit in the face.
1.2 Beat your opponent. The first thing you need to do is point your fist. To make the punch effective, squeeze four of your fingers into a fist, and place your thumb on top - not inside the fist, so as not to break it. Hit an enemy in the nose or stomach to deal serious damage. A simple straight punch is good for beginner fighters. It is performed as follows:
Hold the arm in front of the face, bending it at the elbow at an angle of 30-45 degrees.
Begin to straighten your arm, moving your fist forward.
Apply the weight of your body to your punch to get the most out of it.
1.3 Make the first blow. If you are already confident on your feet, do not hesitate. By making the first blow, you are likely to unsettle your opponent, and take a dominant position in the fight. Don't spend a lot of time walking around the bush trying to find the perfect conditions to attack. Instead, aim carefully and strike again.
1.4 Adapt to the fight. At the beginning of the fight, get an idea of your opponent. Base your fighting technique on your strengths and consider your opponent's weaknesses.
If you are taller, keep your opponent at a distance. You can hit him at a distance where he can't even reach you.
If you are shorter, be quick and approach your opponent. He will try to move away from you to take advantage of his height.
If you have good dexterity, make quick strikes and run away. Be dynamic.
If you are slow, take your time. Let the opponent come to you; don't run after him.
Know your advantages, and use them at the right time. One well-adjusted move far outweighs a dozen unadjusted ones.
1.5 Fight back from the enemy if he grabbed you from behind. You need to get out of this position as soon as possible so that the enemy does not knock you to the ground and begin to dominate you. Here are a few ways to correct this situation and get back in line:
Kick his leg. Hit your heel as hard as you can on his leg and wait for him to loosen his grip.
Hit your head back. Try to hit your opponent in the nose with your head. After he feels pain, he will loosen his grip.
Twist his fingers. Instead of grabbing his wrists, take his fingers and start twisting them until he releases you.
1.6 Save energy. Go all out on punches, and don't make too many unnecessary moves so you don't run out of steam in the middle of a fight. Some opponents will deliberately force you to move a lot in order to strike when you are tired. Be prepared to use aikido techniques. Take a few hits while defending confidently so that your opponent is physically and mentally exhausted.
1.7 Never take your eyes off your opponent. Never take your eyes off your opponent. Some won't do anything if you turn your back, but more experienced fighters will take advantage of this and knock you out.
1.8 Fake the attack. Every time you attack, you become vulnerable. For example, if you make a punch, your attacking hand can no longer protect you, and the opponent can block the attack, and strike back at a weak spot. However, if you fake an attack, your opponent will want to counterattack and become vulnerable himself. The point is to convince the opponent that you are going to make a certain move and anticipate his reaction.You can combine fake punches with real punches to get your opponent confused and unable to predict your moves.
2. Defense in a fight
2.1 Receiving a blow to the head. Of course, it's best not to get hit in the head, but if you're fighting, you're more likely to get some sort of hit, so you need to know how to counter them. To block a blow to the head, move in the direction of the blow, clenching your neck and jaw to minimize damage. Try to make your opponent's fist hit your forehead and hurt him, instead of getting hit in the nose, cheekbone, or jaw.
Moving towards the impact instead of leaning back actually minimizes damage because your opponent will have less time to accelerate.
2.2 Receiving a blow to the stomach. If the blow is to your stomach, you need to tighten your abdominal muscles as much as possible without pulling in your stomach. If possible, try to turn or dodge so that the blow hits the side, and not the very center of the abdomen, to avoid damage to the internal organs and serious injury.
Don't hold your breath because you will literally have it cut off. Instead, breathe out a little before taking the punch, which will naturally tense your stomach.
2.3 Do not fall into the hands of the enemy. If your opponent tries to grab you, he wants to knock you to the ground to dominate you because you will lose your balance. Don't try to grab his head, although you'll want to do so. Instead, grab him by the hips or upper body and try to push him away from you.
After you have done this and gained balance, you can try to hit the opponent in the groin or in the leg.
2.4 Avoid chokeholds. If your opponent is behind your back and chokes you, don't try to crouch and throw him over your back. This will only strengthen his grip and cause you serious damage, especially if you are not strong enough to handle his weight. Instead, grab your opponent's hand that is holding your neck, and while holding it, start turning towards your opponent to wriggle out of the hold.
If you manage to turn around, you can even knock your opponent to the ground from this position. If possible, try to lay it on the shoulder blades.
2.5 Know what to do if you are knocked to the ground. If your opponent has pinned you down, don't try to wriggle out to get up. If you turn your back on him even for a moment, you will surely get hit. Instead, look at the attacker and try to kick him in the shin, knee, or groin as hard as you can. If he's close to the ground, try to hit him in the face. After you deal damage to him, you can start getting up.After you hit your opponent, push him away and start getting up.
Keep looking at your opponent even as you stand up. You may think that he is damaged, but he will still be able to resist you even after getting hit.
2.6 Don't let your opponent knock you to the ground. If you find yourself on the ground with your opponent, you need to avoid getting him on top of you at all costs. If you lie on your stomach, or on your side, you are more likely to get out of this position than if you were lying on your back. In this case, try to get out and stand up as quickly as possible.
If he manages to get you on your back, he will most likely pin you down and punch you in the face. Avoid this at all costs.
2.7 Shout. If you want to end the fight as quickly as possible, start yelling. This will increase the chances that someone will come to the rescue, and your opponent will be scared, which will undoubtedly be to your advantage. Even if there are no people in this place, still continue to shout as loudly as possible, in case someone does pass by. Shouting will also scare your opponent off because they don't expect you to start screaming in the middle of a fight. Even if no one comes to the rescue, shouting can confuse your opponent, and he will be afraid that someone might come to the rescue.
3. Dirty fight
3.1 Hit the opponent in vulnerable places. If this is a fight without rules, then your only goal is to win. So if you want to win in a fight, you don't have to follow the rules - just try to beat your opponent as hard as possible, cripple, or just knock him to the ground to buy time to escape. Here are a few ways to do this:
Knee your opponent in the groin. This is guaranteed to stop him.
Kick the opponent in the groin, knee, or stomach. Do this with the bottom of your leg. Make sure you hit quickly and keep your balance - otherwise you will be easily knocked back during the hit.
3.2 Hit the opponent in the face. The face is a very vulnerable place. Injuries to the eyes, nose, and face result in severe pain, and can quickly slow down an opponent. Here are a few ways to do this:
Headbutt your opponent in the face. Aim your forehead straight at his nose. If you hit accurately, you can break your opponent's nose.
Press your fingers into his eyes. This will cause him great pain, and may blind him and confuse him for a while, which is long enough for you to escape, or cause even more damage.
Punch him in the nose. By striking at this place, you will inflict severe pain on the enemy.
3.3 Neck and throat. A blow to the neck and face of the opponent will stop him for a while. If you want to do more damage, try these punches: Hit the back of your opponent's neck to temporarily black out their eyes.
Hit the opponent in the middle of the throat to damage the airways.
Fake punches are a very useful technique, but difficult to use if the opponent is experienced.
Try to see how your opponent fights before going up against him. This can give you a tactical advantage, although this is not always possible.
Do not look at the opponent's legs or arms. To read the movements, you need to look at the knees and shoulders. If the enemy is looking at your legs, jerk them and hit him in the head.
