How would you deal with the Examples shown in the JFS thread?
As requested by Dreadnaught:
Ok so here goes. We are all having a ball here, but Lets take the example of the double leg take down. Shown is an elbow to the back. It MIGHT work, but in my experience it is not that effective.
SO how would you deal with it?
My answers is as follows.
(a) try to side step the attack, and control the head of the attaker. Swift axe kick to the back of the knee and stomp them a few times.
(b) That fails and they get you on your back. I'd start by "distracting them" with a thumb in or near the eyes (unless they are on drugs that generally stops people from doing what they are doin). Roll them off and get to your feet fast, some form of finishing (a stomp, a kick, or a run like hell).
(c) I might also try a choke if my arms were free (not my favourite idea but if all else fails try something else).
I'm more experienced at getting out of the way or eye gouging (yeah it's not nice but neither is being attacked).
I am NOT a fan of pressure points as they don't work very well all the time!
Ok this is likely to be slammed, but hey I can cope with a cyber slam.
