Learning Self-Defense Part 2 – The top ten ways to win a street fight

An Eye Gouge From Behind -- Ruthless, dishonorable and dirty BUT also very effective . . .

In Part 1 of this article, I discussed what most (at least 99 %) self defense instructors teach and the fact that it has no basis in what has been proven to be effective in modern street combat.

I also told you that the more of those points are present in a system of combatives or self-protection, the less you can rely on it to save your neck when your back is against the wall.

In this article, I’m going to list ten positive points that you should be looking for when choosing a self-defense system.

When I teach self-protection, I only teach things that either I have personally used to survive real street self defense situations, things that I’ve seen used to survive real street fights or things that people I know and trust have used or seen used to survive real street fights or self defense situations.

Sometimes I teach variations of those concepts that I have changed to avoid any problems there might have been the first time I used them or saw them being used.

Just speaking generally, without mentioning specific examples, here are what our experiences have proven to be the deciding factors in winning street fights / surviving street violence.


The Top Ten Ways to Win a Street Fight

1.Attack the other guy first
2.Land the first blow to your opponent’s head or neck
3.Be the one who fights dirtiest
4.Be more aggressive than the person you’re fighting
5.Be more concerned with offense than defense
6.Be the person who hits with more force
7.Be the (first) person to use a weapon
8.Be the person who remains standing while your opponent goes to the ground
9.Be the person who’s on top, if you have to go to the ground
10.Be the person who lands blows instead of locking or clinching


As opposed to the first list in Part 1 of this article, the more of the winning ways that are present in a system of combatives or self-protection, the more you can rely on it to save your neck when your back is against the wall. They may not be honorable, traditional, sporting or pretty, but they work and that’s all that will interest you when you’re in a life or death situation — believe me.

That’s it for today, until next time, go out there and be awesome!
