I am a professional fight trainer, not a street fighter. I deplore violence and work to avoid any
type of street fight, challenge, or encounter. But they have not always avoided me. Here are my
top seven ways to make sure a fight ends quick and with me unhurt.
1. The Straight Right Hand
This is easy to fire and keep your balance, best followed with left hook or ridge hand. This is
also the most common attack, so move to your right and watch for it. It's coming.
2. Carotid Choke
From the front, side or rear, this is the fastest, most humane way to end a fight quickly. A short
interruption of the blood flow to the brain makes Mr. Tough Guy take an instant nap. This has
been outlawed for use by the police because it can be applied wrong and become an oxygen
choke, which is deadly.
3. Finger Flick to the Eyes
This is the fastest weapon you can fire. You're not trying to injure their eyes as much as get them
to blink, raise their hands to their face and stand up a little. This sets them up to get blasted.
4. Shin Kick to the Leg
There is nothing quite like watching the fear come into Mr. Tough Guy's eyes when he has a
hard time standing on his leg because you just cut into it like a baseball bat with your hard
shin. This is very hard to block. Takes the fight right out of guys.
5. Head Butts
Go straight in with your forehead to his nose. Snap your chin down at the last second to add
velocity and explosion to the blast. His nose will explode and his eyes will water. Basically, he's
your to finish or forgive.
6. Knee Strikes.
Devastating strikes—it really doesn't matter what you hit. A good knee strike penetrates deeply.
Cup the guy behind the neck with both of your hands and pull him into a series of five or six
hard knees. Whatever you hit will hurt
7. Major Sweep Takedown
A major sweep is a large outside to inside backwards sweeping pull of your leg behind Mr.
Tough Guy’s leg. Smack his jaw with your palm heel and then grab his head and push in the
opposite direction of your sweep. As he falls slam his head into the ground or the corner of a
table with your hand.
Of course if you can read you opponents intent ...thats always always good for starters......
