7. basic takedowns
8. roundhouse kick
9. rear kick (if you see a attacker behind you, a good one of these to the groin will prevent the whole fight lol)
10. basic, small joint locks, such as wrist.
... have you ever grappled?

the kick to the balls is definitely going on my list.

i take it this is the more serious half of your entry. ;) i notice you don't have a lot of striking techniques there. is that intentional, to emphasize "getting out" of a fight situation rather than continuing it? is it just your personal preference? i see how all of those could be used to momentarily thwart an attacker, whether he was trying to strike or grab you, and get out from under an attacker if they happened to tackle you. i like your five, anyway.

your list seems to emphasize striking from the clinch and grappling. any particular reason why you chose clinch and ground work? is this just "your" personal list, or would you recommend it for anybody?

I think these are good rules for anyone anyway.
word. i like your list too, i think that's a lot of good advice for anyone, trained or not.

I recommend doing this in any potential threatening situation
Add throwing your own feces to that and you'll have them running in terror. Long range monkey style techniques are said to be devastating.

Style: Judo. Some BJJ/Kickboxing
1. push kick
3. covering block (also known as the 'answer the phone' block)
4. Clinch work (double underhooks and/or thai clinch, I suppose)
5. Rear naked choke
8. Thai kick to the leg or knee
10. Elbow escape from mount
In no particular order.
The idea being if you get in a fight use your jab to discourage your opponent, a hook if they don't go down. Stop haymakers with the covering block. If you don't want to punch them, kick their lead leg and run.
If you need to, go for a dominant clinch and then either osoto-gari them into the ground or go for a standing RNC once you slip to a rear clinch. Alternataivley, clinch them and headbutt while holding their head.
If someone takes you down and they're untrained you'll probably end up mounted. Hopefully you clinch will protect you from some takedowns, but **** happens. Use the elbow escape to get some room. You'll need to ad-lib you way from a guard situation to standing, but against an untrained person you should be okay.
Main goal: Incapacitate attacker with jab, thai kick to leg, or hook (as needed) and escape or follow up.
If fight starts at close range clinch and RNC, throw or headbutt, the escape and follow up as needed.
If you somehow end up mounted, know how to escape and then move on to clinch or strikes.

"[Fighting for Points] is doubtless very pretty, and invariably draws applause, but preferences should always be given to blows that do some business, to good straight hits that do something toward finishing the fight.
A man who has carefully trained for brilliant tapping play, will find himself considerably out of it in case he is called upon to do any real work."

Style: MMA, BJJ
1. Draw pistol.
2. Aim pistol(this is very important)
3. Fire pistol.
repeat steps 2 and 3 as necessary. If required, use step 3a: Reload.
The move to step 4: Leave the scene before the cops show up
and step 5: Hide the weapon.
You are in a lot of trouble.

Are we talking self defense for women? Or in general?
1. How to break various grips and grabs (always go against the thumb) in regards to women because most often they are grabbed.
2. Bridge and Roll
3. Mount Escapes.
4 Elbows, Knees (short range striking)
5. Guard sweeps
6. Peek a boo/Bob and weave
7. Osoto Gari
8. Sprawl (really should be like number 2 or 3)
9. Escape from Clinch/Clinch (dirty boxing, delivering strikes from the clinch)
10. Improvised weapons, rocks, glass, keys, pepper spray etc.

I can't believe half the people are completly ignoring the sprawl, breaking grips on you (more a skill then a technique), push kick, and everyone underestimates the kick to the balls.
Now most importantly what are the 10 best technqiues to know if you are the one doing the attacking/robbing
Posted On:2/15/2007 8:54am
I assumed that this attack was in the form of a robbery or generic assault, in which case, the double leg is less likely to occur in the traditional manner. Sprawl is on my list...just not my top 10. Defiantely 11, though.
Like most grappling types, I think position is more imortant than grip fighting, hence I do not prioritze grip fighting. If you are wearing clothes...he'll get his grip eventually. I would rather see a beginner able to clinch properly in this scenario.
Knees can be thrown to the balls, hence I like them...I'm just not picky about targets with beginners.
