Straight Punch

If the person attacking upon you is in front of you, then a straight punch will be the most effective way of self-defense. In order to boost your strength, just push your foot and make sure to shove your hips along with the fist at the attacker. Also, attacking the areas like eyes, nose, or throat will be the most effective one.

Bear Hug Defense

This one is most common while a male attacks any female. The attacker will always grab the victim from front or behind around the shoulders. In such situation, try to grab the attacker’s elbows trying to take the arms away from your body. The best thing is to get as low as you can toward the ground and twist as much as you can so that you can easily wriggle out of your attacker’s hold.

Knee Kick

If the person appears to be close to your body, then kicking your knee can be very effective. Just drive your knee powerfully to hit the attacker’s groin. Using the bony tip of your knee will be more effective and painful. Grabbing the attacker from neck or shoulder prior giving this pick will help you more leverage to knee-kick harder.

• Always attack the weak body parts like eyes, nose, throat, chest, knees, and groin.

• The simplest and most effective move is to grab from the wrist.

• The most sensitive area to attack anyone in the groin. Therefore always aim to hit at this area for a sudden fall of your attacker.
