Unless there are well written, developed female characters with good character arcs I literally don’t care if something was written by a woman.
Doesn’t mean it can’t be sexist.
Being written by a woman doesn’t automatically make something feminist.
why aren’t these being reblogged more often?
i rather see these than “keys in hand”
Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest?
I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)
Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.
reblogging again for that^
Reblogging for the steps in the image and the explanation in the comments. I don’t so much like the explanation on the image proper, but I appreciate the thought behind it (here, have a self-defense thing, it could save you) and so I’m passing it on.
Anybody else up for some ringen after reading this. No?
Simpler solution is to make a nice fist and punch him in the throat as hard as you can. I guarantee you, it will put anybody and everybody on the ground instantly.
Also, let me deconstruct those instructions for you. They’re not entirely correct, and doing it wrong can give false confidence, anger your attacker, and possibly get you killed.
Step 1: This will never work. Nobody grabs pre-emptively and over-commits on a simple grab unless they’re intoxicated. Already, this system is invalid. Same for Step 2.
Step 3: DO NOT USE YOUR HEAD AS A WEAPON UNLESS YOU KNOW HOW IT’S DONE. Done incorrectly (and it is SHOWN incorrectly in the picture), you will end up off-balance, and your head will hurt like CRAZY from the impact with the sharp jawbone on the crown of your head. You won’t even be able to think about Steps 4-7.
Step 4: Perfectly valid step. Probably should be Step 1 if you don’t want to go for the throat punch.
Step 5: This is literally useless. Unless you’re some sort of world-class fighter with a killer elbow, this won’t really hurt at all. An elbow is one of the weakest strikes you can do, and the broad of the back is one of the most resilient targets, at least against unarmed strikes.
Step 6: You can knee him in the face if you want. And the nose doesn’t have enough bones to pierce anything. Even if they did, you won’t kill someone just by poking their frontal lobe with some bone shards. DO NOT KNEE TO THE MOUTH. Chances are, your target’s teeth will be there and they will DESTROY YOUR KNEE.
Step 7: DO NOT ATTACK SOMEBODY WHO IS ALREADY DOWN AND HAS CEASED TO ATTACK YOU. THIS IS ILLEGAL, AND IT CAN LAND YOU IN AS MUCH TROUBLE AS YOUR ATTACKER. If your attacker has already ceased to attack, you have ABSOLUTELY NO RIGHT TO CONTINUE ATTACKING (from both a moral and legal standpoint).
Please please please please don’t follow simple (and completely wrong) “do-it-yourself” charts like this for self-defence. I’ve been a martial artist for over a decade and I can tell you, believing in this stuff and having false confidence is what gets people killed more than anything. Please seek out proper training if you want to defend yourself.
^a better explanation
^^ This explanation is more helpful and will probably help you from being hurt or getting in trouble yourself while still being able to protect yourself from the attacker.
