Hand To Hand Combat Weapons You Can Use On The Streets

There's a common misconception that hand to hand combat is synonymous to unarmed combat  This is not necessarily true  H2H combat is efficient and effective use of your hands, with our without weapons.

Knowing how to defend yourself with weapons is very important because it's almost a sure thing that your assailant will have a weapon of his own  There are no rules in street fighting  The one with the advantage usually wins.

This is the reason why you should know the hand to hand combat weapons that are readily available  These are things that are usually on your person or if not, you can easily find it on the streets.

1. Keys

Most people have keys on their person  It doesn't matter if they're house or car keys  As long as it protrudes from your fingers when you clutch it, you can use it as a stabbing weapon.

2. Umbrella

There are basically two types of umbrellas “ a straight and a foldable umbrella  Check out this video to know how to use them as weapons:

I agree with the use of the foldable umbrella as it can really be as effective as a baton  On the other hand, I believe that a straight umbrella would be more effective with thrusts rather than slashes  Most umbrellas won't hurt your attacker that much if you use them to whack at him  I also disagree about opening the umbrella as it negates the thrusting power of the umbrella  It can also distract you in the process.

3. Sticks, stones or whatever you can get your hands on

This is your last resort  Grab anything that you can use  A stick would be very effective and you're going to use it depending on the size  A short and blunt stick is perfect as a baton while a long one is perfect for whacks and thrusts.

On the other hand, use the stones as projectile weapons  You can easily disorient and even harm your attacker with a few stones thrown his way  This will give you the chance to flee.

Knowledge on how to use these practical hand to hand combat weapons can easily save your life  Arm yourself with this knowledge today and gain an advantage over future assailants.

How to Street Fight the Smart Way

People should know how to street fight  It's that simple  No, you're not going to use it to go look for fights  You're going to use the knowledge to know how to defend yourself when someone decides to pick on you.

There are two ways to street fight “ the smart and dumb way  Let's take a look at this video  I'm sure Kimbo Slice doesn't need any introductions.

The first thing that you need to know is there are bigger guys than Kimbo out there on the street  Big Bird was only slightly smaller but the size difference will always be a disadvantage  Don't make the mistake that the Bird did and go head to head by fighting fair  Now, I'm sure that they had rules in this fight  But in the real world, grab that steel pipe at 1:32 and use it as a weapon  In a kill or get killed situation, no one is expected to fight fair.

Kimbo did one thing right by using his strength and luring his opponent in  He's probably packing explosives in those fists and he knew how to use them  Know your strengths and train to maximize them.

He did one stupid thing though that you should never ever do in street fights  He became overconfident and he put his guard down letting Big Bird hit him at 0:40  Don't give your opponent a chance to gain an advantage.

He got away because his opponent didn't take advantage of it  What did Bird do? He punched his thick jaw and his trunk-like chest  In a real street fight, hit him in the groin  Big Bird already knew he was going to lose after that  If it happens to you and you have a chance to flee, use it  In the first place, always take the chance to flee  If you can avoid a street fight, avoid it  Big Bird made the mistake of fighting when he could have avoided it, and he gained (only) a busted left eye out of it  You might not be as lucky.

Assault And Battery Cases For Hate Crimes Still Happening

In a perfect world, we'd like to believe that African-Americans, Mexicans, Asians, Caucasians and other races can get along well together  After all, the days of lynching are all over  We're past the era of harming other people just because they're of a different race  Are we, really?

White Guy Charged With Assault of Black Teenager

This has hate crime written all over it  This just shows that assault and battery cases for hate crimes still happen  Here's a 22 year old white guy, too young to witness the heydays of the KKK, picking out the only Black guy (a 16 year old teenager) out of 14 people to hit him with a coffee mug repeatedly  Donnivin Brown, the victim, said that he doesn't know Chase Lewis McClary and didn't have an idea why he assaulted him  But the witnesses may have an explanation.

While repeatedly hitting Brown, witnesses said that McClary kept on calling Brown with a racial epithet  I'm sure we all have a pretty good idea what that racial epithet was  The case is now being reviewed if it should be processed as a hate crime.

Now, Brown had two faults here  First, he's Black but he couldn't do anything about that  Second, he let his guard down  Once hit, he couldn't do anything about it as he was hit pretty solid  Be aware of your surroundings and be vigilant against threats so that you won't fall victim to hate crimes.

On that note, it's a wonder why McClary was able to do that much damage  What were the other 13 guys doing? If they knew basic hand to hand combat, they could have easily disabled McClary to prevent him from causing further damage  I guess they just have to list it as a what if  The question is, are you going to do something so that you won't fall victim to a hate crime?

Crime On Video: Proof That Shit Happens When You Least Expect It

What started off as a relatively calm Tuesday morning almost ended up in a nightmare, when a guy in apparent road rage approached a car whose driver apparently cut him off to challenge him to a fight  Sensing danger, he had his son shoot the crime on video.

You can see how the attacker is oblivious to what's happening around him  It seems that all he cares about is to inflict damage to the driver and probably to the son  Now, this kind of thing happens all the time  The driver can consider himself lucky that his attacker didn't have a weapon and let's face it  The attacker was pretty stupid.

The driver already asked his son at the 0:13 mark to call 911 but the son (calmly) said that he couldn't find the phone  That's a concern right there  What if other drivers didn't call 911 for him? The police was pretty fast as he arrived on the scene after over a minute  But a lot could have happened in that minute  The driver was lucky that his attacker is stupid enough to look away during a fight and the driver got a lucky punch in.

How about you? Are you feeling lucky?
