Actually, I can work with the putter, thanks to miniature golf. Yes I lied. But the five iron, I can smash that. And that is it. I am not kidding."We often joke -- and we really wish it were a joke -- that you will only encounter two basic problems with your 'self-defense' training.
1) That it doesn't work
2) That it does work"

I've never used BJJ in the street, but last Sunday I did use it in the park. Some guy saw me rolling with my little brother, teaching him an armbar from guard, and challenged me.
He was bigger than me and looked stronger too, but I said 'yes' anyway - can't back down in front of my brother after all!
Long story short: Pulled guard, swept to mount, took his back, then clung to him like a limpet till he got tired and gave up. Interestingly enough, I ended up with a busted lip and scratched-up hands, while he looked just fine.
For the record:
(1) I didn't encounter any needles, broken glass or lava.
(2) His friends didn't jump in - they actually seemed quite impressed by my jiu jitsu.

2. If you have someone's back, and you're not having a friendly spar, use a ridge hand under the nose (you can just put your hand there instead of hitting him wit it) and force his head back to expose his neck for the RNC. You can also palm his forehead and pull his head back to you to do the same thing.
3. Make sure they know how to tap before you start.

He fell on his ass on the grass.

That said--while it's painful for many--it's merely a bit uncomfortable for some (I'm one of those), and may not yield the desired effect, so be sure to have a "plan B" ready in case it doesn't work.

I have used both these techniques out of the gym to slap on RNC's in a swift manner in the past however. As Vieux pointed out (indirectly) there is almost no risk of being bitten using the forehead technique. Although I performed the ridge hand technique as a low impact strike and withdrew it immediately when I used it against a hostile person. My hand was in front of his face for a very short period of time.
