Martial Arts Book Two
Harry J. Chong
IntroductionOnce you have a foundation for self-defense you must go on and expand your knowledge. The followingis advice about fitness, and a fair collection of useful techniques that one can add to his or her repertoire.Again this is only for my personal use.Getting Better at Self Defense: Fitness and TrainingWhen you want to learn self-defense for yourself you must find a proper instructor and learn a variety of fighting techniques to be well rounded. You must do classes or a combination of classes, which teach youhow to use yourself in every way you can.
You should learn:
-How to use your hands, elbows, knees, and feet for striking.-How to grapple, and wrestle, and fight on the ground.-How to exploit/take advantage of weaknesses in the body, what areas to target, how to manipulate joints,and pressure points.-How to do footwork, block, evade, and dodge.-How to deal with multiple attackers.-How to deal with weapons.-How to use weapons.-How to avoid trouble.-How to prepare yourself mentally, and how to think, and even how to communicate with your attacker.
In addition to this you must also get in shape. This requires several things:
1. A good diet, with lots of fruits and vegetables, and milk, and eggs, and wholesome foods.2. Meditation and relaxation, learning how to cope with stress.3. Stretching, similar to what one might find in yoga or Pilates.4. Tough work and internal conditioning. That would include things like battering your forearms and fistsagainst wood -- in a controlled manner -- to toughen your bones and skin. (See: Wolff's Law.)5. Sparring.6. Shadow boxing.7. Drills or katas.8. Practicing against human substitutes, like a dummy, and/or a heavy bag and speed bag.9. Competitive Fighting.10. A combination of aerobic and anaerobic exercises. Skipping rope, sprinting (doing interval training),and swimming.11. Compound weight lifting exercises. The basics would be the squat, bench press, overhead press, barbell rows, and the dead lift. (See: Stronglifts.com.)
Recommended martial arts:
1. Krav Maga - Developed by the Israeli army, for realistic self-defense, and if you have little time totrain. (Make sure you go to a school that also incorporates grappling.)2. Combat Sambo - A mixed Russian martial art, designed for combat by the Red Army in the 1920s.3. Systema - Another mixed Russian martial art, used by Russian Special Forces.4. Kajukenbo - A mixed martial art, founded in Hawaii, that combines Western Boxing, Judo, Jujutsu,Kenpo Karate, Eskrima, Tang Soo Do, and Kung Fu.5. Hapkido - Another mixed martial art that is traditionally Korean. (Again, like Krav Maga, find a schoolthat incorporates grappling.)6. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - Mainly grappling, but it teaches you how to fight excellently on the ground, andeven when standing, by using your opponent's major weaknesses. For completeness, combine it withanything below and vice-versa.7. Boxing - Basic, easy to learn, and natural. This should be combined with something like Brazilian JiuJitsu or even American Wrestling.8. Muay Thai - Like boxing, but uses your feet, knees, and elbows. It can be very brutal. Again, combinewith a grappling art.9. Wing Chung - Fast and direct. Does not require much strength, but relies on speed. Combine withwrestling or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, since two thirds of fights go to the ground.A last tip:Take it slow. Don't push yourself too hard. Go at your own pace. Learn at a speed that makes youcomfortable. You do not want to injure yourself while training. Be as realistic as possible.Techniques and TricksAgainst Weaponry:Facing The Knife
