Street Fighting Moves – Do You Know the 2 Mindsets For Women’s Self Defense and For Middle-Aged Men?
Do you think that the approach to self defense and self protection is the same for women and middle-aged men? In this article, you will discover that there are 2 important mindsets that are vital for effective self defense for the woman as well as for the middle-aged man, 50 and over.
When you walk into the typical strip-mall martial arts dojo to observe a lesson, what is it that you typically see? You usually see, young people, say between the ages of 18 and 35, predominantly and on the average (with the exception of course of the teacher who he himself may be in his 40’s or 50’s) more males than female. You will likely see a lot of showing off of high and spectacular kicks by the senior students. This is the typical traditional martial arts scenario.
What I want to talk about now is what sort of reality-based, proven, easy and tested method can the average woman and/or middle-aged man utilize for effective self defense and self protection.
Essentially there are 2 mindsets that in particular the average woman and middle-aged man must adopt because in both of these cases it will almost always involve a bigger and stronger man attacking you.
The 2 Mindsets for Women’s Self Defense and Self Defense for the Middle-Aged Man
Mindset #1 – Put Situational Awareness and Distance Awareness In The Forefront of Your Personal Safety – You be always be in the moment and notice your environment. Notice suspicious situations and suspicious characters. Once you put on alert your situational awareness, you must know be aware of the proximity of the perceived danger is from you. If you can see danger coming before it hits you, you can either avoid it or more effectively deal with it.
Mindset #2 – Be Not Afraid To Strike First With The Most Destructive Blow Available – The preemptive strike or as some may like to say “the sucker punch” can be the difference between your survival or your demise. When danger approaches, strike first, hard and without hesitation with the most destructive blow available. Let me interject here that one of the easiest to execute and the most destructive first strike blows is the head-butt. The smallest woman or middle-aged man can head-butt an aggressor by surprise and easily cave his nose bone in and knock him out. (Be sure to strike not with the eyebrows or the mid-forehead but with the area high on the forehead, just about where the hairline meets the forehead which is the hardest part of your head.)
