What can a person do to defend themselves against multiple attackers? This famed question is asked by dozen of martial artists all across the globe. In the following article, we will real answer this question, and you may not like it. BUT..
Before we do, let me start by saying a few things. First, fighting multiple attacker is one of the DUMBEST things you can do. In fact, there are only a few ways I would even consider the notion.
1.If I was jumped
2.If my family was in immediate danger, and I truly felt that their lives were on the line.
3.I was in a situation where I knew that I would be killed or gravely injured if I did not act.
In any other situation I would try to avoid a fight at all cost or RUN as if my life depended on it, preferably into the closest business, where I would call the police, and ask them to escort me to either my vehicle or my house.
Second, if you want to learn how to fight multiple attackers, you need to practice by training in techniques and implementing them by fighting multiple people (in a controlled setting of course).
If you are under the notion that any home course alone will prepare for an altercation with multiple attackers, you are sorely mistaken. It takes practice and implementation before you can be effective in using any technique. That means, getting your butt kicked a whole lot and learning what works and does not work.
Alright. I feel better.
So if you still truly want to learn how to fight multiple attackers. Here it goes.
1.Start calling around to local schools in your area and ask if they also offer sparring (Make sure you specify non-point sparring) against single and multiple opponents in their classes.
If they give you some crap about their style being to deadly for traditional fighting or sparring, hang up the phone. Chances are this school is not worth your time. Make a list of around 10-20 martial arts schools that say that offer this.
2.Take your list and visit the martial arts schools. Plan for at least two trips, one on their fighting or sparring night and one on their traditional training night. Plan to stay the whole time.
Make sure you watch out for red flags. Are the students in shape? Is the instructor very willing to honestly answer all of your questions? Do the students move well, and do they seem like they are able to defend themselves in a effective manner?
3.This should be the final test. Let the instructor know that you are very interested in the school, but you want to be sure that it is a right fit.
Ask if they would be willing to let you do a trial run for at least a week (many of the schools I know that are worth their salt have a month trial run, but a week should be enough time to let you know if the school is really any good or not.)
Ask if they will let you spar before the trial is over. If they do not offer some sort of trial run, you should seriously consider the schools motives.
If they start trying to force you into a contract right away, leave. Do not even waste your time with that sort of nonsense.
4.Spar the students. Do not punk out. If they can hand you your butt on a platter, thats a good sign that you have a school that can teach you a thing or two.
Thats it! There you have it.
If you have followed these steps correctly, be prepared to do some of the toughest training in your life. But if you stick it out for several years it will be worth it.
If you are really smart, you will do what the real tough guys do. Now what do I mean by tough guy?
I mean the guys that deal with violent dangerous people on a daily basis. I am talking about bounty hunters, prison guards, police officers, correctional officers.
These guys are in the thick of it. They eat, breath, and live violence every single day.What do you think these guys rely upon to bring down, even the toughest criminals? Their two fist and feet?
Well, um no. Their gun??
Self defense weapons like pepper spray, and taser guns?
Think about it, why waste your time trying to out fight a criminal whose twice my size when I could just tase them, stun them, or spray them, and they will be down for the count in just a few seconds flat.
Makes since right? Truly smart street smart people know to use the tools that will get them out of a situation alive and unharmed.
And guess what? In most states these same weapons are 100% legal for civilian use!!
Do you own a taser, stun gun, or pepper spray? If not you really should consider it. Because it can really save your life.
Great Tips for Anyone Thinking about Cosmetic Surgery
Getting cosmetic surgery is not a light decision. You need to take your time and research the surgery you are having done, before committing to it. It is important that you find out as much as you can beforehand. Here are some things you need to consider, when you are deciding to have cosmetic surgery done.
You will probably have to remove hairs before the operation; ask your surgeon what method is best. Usually, waxing is the best solution, but you might be able to shave if you do not have a lot of hairs. Your surgeon should be able to recommend the better method and the best products.
When contemplating cosmetic procedures requiring surgery, it is wise to request a fair number of before and after photographs prior to scheduling your operation. By assessing the true potential as well as the limitations of your chosen procedure, you will head into the process with realistic expectations of what is achievable, thereby avoiding possible disappointment.
Before you decide on plastic surgery, consider other options that are available to you. Sometimes there are measures far less severe that could be taken to address the issue. You might be able to get satisfactory results by simply using make-up, going to a dermatologist or developing a better beauty regimen.
Check to see if your surgeon is qualified. When considering cosmetic surgery, you want to be sure that the surgeon you are using is competent. Check online reviews. Contact the medical board. If the surgeon is board-certified, and ask about any complaints. Checking the surgeon out now can save you a lot of grief later.
Before going under the knife, always seek out a board-certified cosmetic surgeon. It is imperative that you get to know your surgeon. Ask about his qualifications, and certifications. Request before and after photos. If possible, speak with former patients. A good surgeon will be proud to show off his best work, and will always be forthcoming about qualifications.
You should keep your expectations of the results of plastic surgery realistic. Most procedures are about just an improvement over what you already look like and will not create a new face. If the procedures are centered around body contouring, remember that this is not a weight loss procedure but will merely improve the shape of your body by a few degrees.
