The Importance of Empty Hands Self Defense

Regina Pinpin - Wednesday, December 17, 2014

'I would just use my gun, I don't need to take Self defense.'

This was a quote from a gentleman we met at a promotional marketing event years ago. He felt he had all the answers. The perfect solution to any confrontation that would come his way. Did I agree with him?

Stadiums and sports events. Airplanes and airports. Schools and universities. Special events and concerts.

There's a rise in crime in the stadiums where the spirited teams lose control. The alcohol is consumed and temperaments of the fans heighten . Senseless attacks on rival fans or even fans of the same team. According to a recent article I read on Kiro 7 iPad news , in our city of San Francisco , at the 49ers games last Season of 2013 there were 3415 incidents, 23 felony arrests , 201 fights and 631 ejections from the stadium. Two Men were attacked at the Levi Stadium on Monday October 6,2014 , in one of their bathrooms. One seriously injured .

As for schooling my middle school was adjacent to one of the more violent high schools of San Francisco. Metal bars around the perimeters, metal detectors at every entrance. Guns and knives didn't make it through but there were still fights and sexual attacks against women.

In situations like these, using your own limbs as weapons might be the only option to defending yourself against attacks or sexual assaults . A knee kick to the groin, a roundhouse elbow to the head might be the only way to go in a tight quarters or small spaces. Or what about in a chaotic situation during a sports game with Huge crowds.?

Shortly after 9-11. A pilot from United Airlines had called our dojo in regards to safety , awareness and self defense on an airplane , stepping out of the cockpit or the restroom . We worked on grab defenses, against chokes or double lapel grips.

We looked at all things on the planes that someone can use against another. After the incident of that year , that horrible terrorism that occurred, The eyes and lookout of America changed . More people would try to identify if there was some looming danger, some possible threat, anything that would effect homeland security.

The economy was going through hardship, but we were getting calls for more self defense then ever. The purchase of Gas masks and empty hand training elevated.

Fingers, thumbs, heels, ball of the foot, palm of the hand, elbows, knuckles, shin, knees, forehead, hips , shoulder. Can all these body parts be lethal weapons ? If used properly with technique and with speed. Every second counts in a matter of life and death . Vital center targets must get struck to stop an assailant. So yes fist my fist of security or my power kick has the potential to save my life if I was in danger.

Security officers, body guards, police, bouncers, department store agent, CIA , FBI, can carry weapons but still take lessons in self defense, to use their bare hands and strong legs. Weapons can be taken away . And most of all, the number one human weapon is the mind, the quick reactive thought processing of responding to a situation . The mind. The control center.

You're already equipped with weapons of self defense. Where you can be in total control. When taught properly and safely , your hands and feet with quick reactive response can save your life.

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks
