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.

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.

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.
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?
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?
