    Self Defence Techniques And Training

    What are some of your favorite self-defense techniques that you employ against muggers, kidnappers, and unarmed and armed assailants etc. at and on the way to and from the pool hall, especially late at night. What kind of education and physical training do you engage in to this end? -Slim

    SlimJim,
    If I was in Miami-walking with Voodoo!ha ha ha-I noticed you stated"walking to and from the pool hall"-anything can happen anywhere at anytime-even out your front door-just being aware of your surroundings,streetwise!I mean, you dont walk through central Park at night alone! Streetwise-I would NEVER fear leaving any of my poolrooms-is there a problem in your area of this occurring?I feel we all have the Flight/fight instinct-when adrenaline pumps, people can do amazing things
    Carol~hmmmmmm!Hopes Slimjim is in a safe area!

    Like most of us I have a 10 pound pool case, wanna take a shot?

    PS. I also carry a very large screw driver in my case. If I can get to it you're toast. No problems ever in any of the pool rooms I have frequented.

    Dont go in dark allies or other places where you can be penned in. Stay in the open, be aware of all that is around you and especially in dark places, under cars etc. If someone attacks me in the open, as long as they dont have a gun, that gives me a chance to get away. I can run pretty fast when I have too. [img]/ccboard/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

    <blockquote><font class="small">Quote CarolNYC:</font><hr>anything can happen anywhere at anytime-be aware of your surroundings! <hr /></blockquote>Correct. Many problems can be avoided by being aware of potential danger and giving it a wide berth. Potential assailants will notice your alertness which will tend to make them wait for an easier target.

    <blockquote><font class="small">Quote Kato:</font><hr>I have a 10 pound pool case.<hr /></blockquote> Correct. Weapons may be utilized out of anything that is nearby. Be creative. <blockquote><font class="small">Quote Kato:</font><hr>I also carry a very large screw driver in my case. <hr /></blockquote>Correct. Carrying a weapon is a good idea. However, it is not enough just to carry it, one must know how to use it. This will take some forethought and practice. Also, it will do no good if it cannot be reached in time. At the first sign of potential danger the screwdriver should be made handy. You may want to consider carrying something that is more handy all of the time.

    <blockquote><font class="small">Quote silverbullet:</font><hr> Dont go in dark allies or other places where you can be penned in.

Don't wait until you are being threatened to try to figure the best way out. Watch for this while driving also. Don't pull up so close to a stopped vehicle in front of you that you can not get out around it.


    <blockquote><font class="small">Quote silverbullet:</font><hr> get away. I can run pretty fast when I have too.<hr /></blockquote>Correct. However, this idea needs to be developed furthur. The process of "just running" is more complicated than a casual thought of it implies. For instance, can you climb a fence? Have you practiced it? Also, it is difficult to run while wounded. Think of escaping in terms of evade and escape. You must evade the immediate attack, neutralize the immediate threat of injury, and then escape.

    I can climb a fence but not very fast,so it would not accomplish much to gain distance by running and then to have to climb a fence, losing what i had gained. Now I assume we are talking high fences here. 3-5 foot fences are not much of a problem, unless they have barbed wire.

    As far as running while wounded, would use objects such as cars between us to slow my assailant down while I could look for a weapon. In the case where I am not able to outrun an attacker due to injury or another reason, it would be regretfully necessary to turn and fight. I guess that is why it is good to know self defense, in case that ever begins necessary.

    otoh, i do not walk in closed places. It may be walking to my car in an open parking lot or walking on a street that I know well, even then do not walk where I can be closed up alone.

    The thoughts of when driving are good too. It is a good idea to keep doors locked and windows up, as well as being aware of if anyone is approaching the car.

    Kidnappers?

    Anyway, let's see. Since I checked my testosterone bag at the front desk, I'll say that running and screaming for help would be just slightly behind the strategy of handing over the money, if my life depended on it.
