    AoM: Don Draper's Dapper Judo





    I find one can get a sick sort of kick reading self defence advice from any source that doesn't specialize in the subject, especially by browsing any accompanying discussions. This week, testicular pride blog The Art of Manliness brings us scans from a 1962 PopSci article on unarmed street-defence. Along with containing beautifully hand sketched diagrams of old school "street jujitsu" reminiscent of some of the better instructional books of the era (Feldenkrais anyone?), the article shows a slick way to keep one knee up when doing drop seoi, a classic hammerlock defence from a loose rnc, and of course the obligatory rapist choke defence. The real gold, however, follows at the bottom of the page. Some favourites:



    I studied martial arts for 16 years and learned a bunch of live knife techniques [...] I would suggest stepping back so that you’re facing his knife while using your left hand to slow his momentum. Then slide your right foot forward while doing the grab and continue as described from there.

    Judo’s awesome but it was created as a sport version of Jiu Jitsu. These days Judo emphasizes more throws than Jiu Jitsu does, but Judo is just not as practical for self defense.

    Don’t forget that if you are attacked with a knife, expect to get stabbed.
    The person who wins a knife fight is the guy that bleeds out last.

    The method for escaping a bear hug has two big flaws. 1) When you lower yourself, the attacker can easily slip his arms up and you’re now being choked. 2) When you lower yourself and start reaching for that leg, he can easily knee you in the balls.

    Instead, reach up and grab both of his forearms, so he can’t choke you, then lower yourself and get one leg behind the guy. (your right behind his left, or your left behind his right.) Then, keeping both feet firmly on the ground, twist your body. Your thigh will trip him and he will end up on the ground on his back, while you should still be standing.

    I love the Art of Manliness in general, but skip over anything involving martial arts, because invariably, the comments will make me flip my lid. Street vs. Sport, karate is t3h d34d7y, all the usual bullshido arguments.

    Twist your body?

    hrnghrngrhgn ouch. I may be limber but I don't want to herniate anything by twisting my body while against someone potentially stronger than me.

    "Evolve" doesn't mean "improve," so at least partial credit is due.

    I don't entirely disagree with this. Many people believe evolution to be a process programmed to draw an organism towards the most perfect form possible, but this isn't so. It is instead a process by which random and accidental mutations and genetic changes within a population are passed down in the event that they are ideal for survival in their current environment (and thus the organisms having them getting laid more).

    In this case, aikido is a randomly and accidentally mutated form of Judo, ideally suited for survival in its environment (the minds of larpers who have never had a real need to defend themselves and who are easily spooked by reality).

    Looks like they're at it again, only this time with a krav maga theme in a monthly article.

    And today's favourites:

    Read up on it. Youíll see what I mean.
