Street fighting tactics

Street fighting tactics DEFAULT

Street Fighting Techniques are available to you twenty four hours a day and seven days per week. The great news is you don’t have to be a martial arts master or study mixed martial arts (MMA) to use these practical street fighting techniques. As a matter of fact, if you are reasonably intelligent and have a modicum of strength and coordination, you can apply several of these techniques in a real world self defense situation.

Street Fighting Technique Requirements

Before you decide to apply any street fighting technique in a real world self defense situation, you must be ceratin that it has specific attributes or qualities that will enhance your survival. For example, in my reality based self defense system called Contemporary Fighting Arts (CFA), each and every street fighting technique that we teach our students must fulfill three essential requirements: efficiency, effectiveness and safety

  • Efficiency means the street fighting technique achieves its objective quickly and economically.
  • Effectiveness means the street fighting technique produce a desired effect.
  • Safety means the street fighting technique provides the least amount of danger and risk for the practitioner.

“Contemporary Fighting Arts concentrates on going to the root of a street fighting situation and quickly settling it.”

All three requirement are interdependent. If just one requirement is absent, it could quickly spell disaster for you or a loved one. However, when these three requirements are united and synergistically applied, you have street fighting techniques that have the capacity to disable, cripple and even terminate a criminal adversary. Perhaps this is a good time to remind you that whenever you decide to use force against another you must be absolutely certain that your actions are legally warranted and justified in the eyes of the law.

“Each and every street fighting technique must be efficient, effective and safe. Anything less can spell disaster for you in a self defense situation.”

What Makes a Street Fighting Techniques Lethal?

There are generally two factors that really determine the lethality of any street fighting technique and they are:

  • Target that you select.
  • Amount of force you deliver to that target.

14 Street Fighting Techniques

For reasons of simplicity, I have identified fourteen street fighting techniques that can be used in a real world self defense situation. Once again, they are based on efficiency, effectiveness and overall safety for the practitioner. Keep in mind that just about all of these street fighting techniques can be developed on various types of martial arts equipment. Please see my martial arts equipment article for more information. Having said that, lets take a look at some very practical street fighting techniques.

“There are fourteen street fighting techniques that you will always have at your disposal.”

Head butt – When fighting in grappling or clinch range, your head can be used for butting your assailant’s nose. Keep in mind that the head butt can be delivered in four different directions: forward, backward, right side, and left side. When delivering a forward head butt, be certain to make contact with the top portion of your forehead. If you want to learn more about applying the head butt, see my DVD, Engage With Rage: Mastering the Street Clinch

Biting – The teeth can be used for biting anything on your assailant’s body (nose, ears, throat, fingers, etc.) Remember to bite deeply into the assailant’s flesh and shake your head vigorously. Note: There is an important concern to biting in a street fight: you run the risk of contracting AIDS if your adversary is infected and you draw blood while biting him.

Yelling – Believe it or not but your voice is also a street fighting weapon. When used correctly, it can distract and shock your assailant causing him to temporarily freeze. For more information, read my book, When Seconds Count: Everyone’s Guide to Self Defense

“Never use fancy or complex techniques when involved in a street fight. Such ornamental techniques are just too risky and impractical for street combat.”

Elbow strikes – The elbows are devastating weapons that can generate tremendous power. Elbow strikes can be delivered vertically, diagonally and horizontally to the enemy’s nose, temple, chin, throat, solar plexus and ribs. Note: Elbow strikes are explosive, deceptive and difficult to defend against.

Punching – The fists are used for punching the assailant’s temple, nose, chin, throat, solar plexus, ribs and in some cases, the groin. Punching is an art form that requires considerable training and practice to master. Note: When landing your punch, remember to make contact with your center knuckle. For more information, see my book, 1001 Street Fighting Secrets: The Principles of Contemporary Fighting Arts. You might also want to read my online article entitled How to Punch. 

Raking – Your fingers and nails can be used for jabbing, clawing and gouging the assailant’s eyes. They can also be used for pulling, tearing and crushing the enemy’s throat and testicles. Note: Your fingers can be an awesome street fighting technique. Just make certain your actions are legally justified in the eyes of the law!

“Street fighting techniques are not the only element of combat; your mind and body must work with each other to defeat the adversary.”

Palm heels – The heel of your palm can be used for delivering palm heel strikes. A strike of the palm can be exceptionally powerful and it is best delivered on a 45-degree angle to the opponent’s nose or chin. Note: When striking with the heel of your palm, remember to torque your shoulders, hips and foot into the direction of the blow.

Edge of hand strike – The edge of your hand can be whipped horizontally into the opponent’s nose or throat, causing severe injury or death. It can also be delivered vertically or diagonally to the back of your opponent’s neck. Note: Beware! Striking with the edge of your hand can be a lethal street fighting technique.

Web of hand strike – The web of your hand can be used to deliver web hand strikes to the opponent’s throat. When striking, be certain to keep your hand stiff with your palm facing down. For more information please take a look at, The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall

“While a fighting stance is the ideal vehicle for hand to hand combat, many of these street fighting techniques can be applied without the structure of a stance.”

Open Hand or Fisted Strikes?

Are open hand strikes (finger jabs, palm heels, web hand strikes, etc.) or fisted blows (lead straight, rear cross, hook punches, etc.) the preferred street fighting technique? While open hand blows are generally safer to deliver than fisted strikes, both are essential for self defense (if you also like to learn more about delivering fisted blows, see my how to punch article). Open hand strikes are generally used as first strike tools while fisted blows comprise the majority of your secondary strike arsenal.

Some people are reluctant to employ fisted strikes for fear that they will injure their hands. Be Forewarned! When a fisted blows makes contact with the opponent’s skull, it often results in a fractured hand. Therefore, its essential that your fisted blow be delivered accurately and at the proper moment. For more information about specific hand strikes that you can use in a street fight, see my DVD, Armed to the Teeth (Volume 1).

Knee Strikes – The knees are excellent street fighting technique that can bring down the most powerful of adversaries. Knee strikes can be delivered vertically and diagonally to the opponent’s thigh, groin, ribs, solar plexus and face.

Kicking with your Shins – The shinbone is another powerful technique that can quickly cripple your assailant. When striking with your shin, aim for the opponents thigh, the side of his knee, or groin. Note: When kicking with your shinbone, always aim through your target.

“Kicking techniques are just one of the skills that separate the martial artist from any common boxer, wrestler or street brawler.”


Kicking with the Dorsum of your Foot
 – The dorsum of your foot is used for delivering vertical kicks to the opponent’s groin and in some cases his head (i.e., your assailant is on the ground and you are standing above him). Note: Kicking with your dorsum increases the power of your blow, prevents broken toes, and also lengthens the surface area of your strike.

Kicking with the Heel of your Foot – The heel of your foot is used for delivering side kicks to the opponent’s thigh, knee or shin. It can also be used to stomp down on the assailant’s toes. Note: Never underestimate the effectiveness of a simple foot stomp. They work!

Kicking with the Ball of your Foot – The ball of your foot is used for delivering push kicks into your opponent’s thigh. It can also be used to deliver a quick snap kick into the assailant’s shin bone. Note: When striking with the ball of your foot, remember to pull your toes back to avoid jamming or breaking them. If you would like to learn more about kicking in a street fight, see my self defense DVD, Armed to the Teeth (Volume 2).

“There is a direct correlation between ranges of combat and street fighting technique. You must be able to choose and apply the technique appropriate for the distance you are fighting.”

Before we continue with this article, we want to stress the importance of attempting to solve a problem without physical altercation. Try your best to deescalate a situation before it becomes a fist fight. There are obviously many dangers when you’re fighting someone, not only from the impact you make on each other, but the impact of someones head bouncing off concrete. A head bouncing off concrete can lead to many problems such as concussion or death.

Keep these possibilities in mind when you’re angry and about to let fists fly. A street fight isn’t worth someones life, no matter how angry you are at the time. If you would like to be trained for real life self-defense situations, please visit our article on the 10 Reasons Why You Should Study Martial Arts. I always try to avoid street fights when I can, however this guide will still do a great job in teaching you how to win a street fight.

What Not to do in a Fight

Knowing what not to do in a physical fight is just as important as knowing what to do. When an attacker comes into striking range with you, the worst thing you can do is let your guard down. Watch your opponents body language, if they clinch their fist they are most likely preparing to punch you. Continue to step back and keep a good distance while talking to your opponent. Stay out of striking range while they are still being aggressive.

Remember, your opponent could be on drugs or could possible have a weapon. This is especially dangerous when the opponent is a random stranger being aggressive towards you. Don’t assume a fighting stance yet if the situation can still be defused. However the moment that a physical altercation takes place, assume a good fighting stance and posture so that you’re not easily moved. DO NOT LET YOUR GUARD DOWN, under any circumstance. This is especially important in a street fight where there are no rules.

Example of a good fighting stance:
Good fighting stance for a streetfight
The reasons why this is a good fighting stance:
– Hands are up and alert, always stay active with your hands, never let your guard down in a street fight.
– Proper foot position. It doesn’t matter if you stand with your right foot first (southpaw) or your left foot first (orthodox), however always make sure that your rear foot is at a 45 degree angle, and at a good space from your front foot. (around shoulder length apart)
– Chin tucked! This is so important, keeping your chin high in the air will leave you susceptible to getting knocked out.

Throw the First Punch

Believe it or not, we’re completely serious. If you believe a situation has escalated to the point of no return, throw the first punch, especially if your opponent is bigger than you. The best advantage you can give yourself is ending a fight before your opponent even gets a chance to react. Throwing a punch that lands clean will possibly rock your opponent, or at minimum create the opportunity to throw more punches. Landing with a clean punch will help you end a street fight before it even starts.

Push forward and be aggressive, if the fight goes to the ground then use grappling to submit your opponent (we’ll talk more about this later). Once you have the advantage, don’t let up until you sense there is no more danger. This DOES NOT mean continue punching an unconscious opponent. If you knock out or choke out your opponent, get up and stop attacking them. Continuing to punch or choke an unconscious opponent can lead to serious brain damage, or even death.

Street Fighting Scenarios

Scenario 1: Standup Fist Fight

This type of fight is usually when two people stand up and trade blows, this is usually agreed upon beforehand because most street fights usually make their way on the ground. A standup fist fight has a high chance of a knockout, because the typical untrained fighter will typically swing their fists recklessly. This usually involves reckless swinging with chins up and absolutely no defense. Don’t let this be you, don’t leave yourself susceptible to a knockout in the street, because you never know if your opponent will stop after you’re unconscious. This is another reason why it’s so important to win a street fight and not be on the losing end.

You can practice standup fighting by shadow boxing in the mirror. Throw basic punch combinations and work on your footwork and head movement. If you need more tips on how to improve your standup fighting or boxing, please visit our guide on how to become a better boxer.

Be ready for the right hand
The most common first punch thrown in a fight is the right hand or right hook.

Video example on how to defend against this:

Scenario 2: Fighting on the ground

As we explained earlier, almost all street fights will eventually go to the ground. This can happen from someone being punched and knocked down, or it can happen from someone being tackled or taken down. This type of fighting will be an advantage for people who have wrestled in school. The best thing you can do in this situation is get in a dominate position. Either get on top of a person in a mount position, or get behind a person and take their back.

Mount position
This position is great because you’re able to do some good ground and pound, which will eventually lead to your opponent rolling over (and then you’ll have their back). In the mount position you can throw all types of strikes at your opponent, like punches and elbows. Be careful if you’re on a concrete type of surface such as the street or sidewalk. Hitting the back of your head or your opponents head off of concrete can lead to serious brain damage or death. Also, be careful when throwing punches while grounded on a concrete surface, it’s very possible to break your hand off the ground if you miss your opponent.

Example of a mounted position:
street fight on the ground
Take your opponents back
When you’re in the mount position and inflicting serious damage on your opponent, they will eventually roll onto their stomach. This is the perfect time to take their back and end the fight with a submission. The most common submission is the rear naked choke because it’s quick and effective. When you have your opponents back it just happens to be the perfect position to choke them. If you start choking your opponent chances are that you’ve won your street fight, however don’t let your guard down for one moment during or after the choke.

Video example explaining the steps of a rear naked choke:

After the Fight is Over

Be respectful after the fight is over, while also being aware of any other possible attackers, especially if the person you just fought isn’t alone. If you win the fight and your opponent is with friends, those friends might want a round two (or some sort of redemption for their friend). You always need to keep your guard up before, during, and immediately after a street fight. I hope that this article has given you the confidence to win a street fight, however I hope that you’re never in this situation.

Learning “how to win street fight” with the skill and confidence of a seasoned fighter is something that can certainly be achieved. As a matter of fact, I’ve dedicated my entire live to teaching law abiding people how to defend and protect themselves in the streets.

However, I have to tell you from the start that it’s not such and easy task; it will require a bit of dedication on your part. But, if you are willing to do some serious studying as well as some practical self-defense training you could learn the skills necessary to win a street fight. 

Before we begin, you must understand the information in this article is just a small fraction of what you need to know about winning a street fight. I strongly encourage you to take your research further and read the many books featured on this website. Having said that, lets talk about street fighting and what it takes to win. 

STREET FIGHTING IS NOT MMA

First off, let me clarify that learning how to street fight is not the same as studying mixed martial arts or a practicing a formal style of traditional martial arts. Street fighting is an animal with proteon behavior that often has deadly consequences for the participants.

The truth is, a street fight also has many different faces and takes on many different forms. One minute it can be a fist fight in a trendy yuppie bar while the the next could be a deadly knife fight in a godforsaken part of town. As the saying goes, no two street fights are ever the same! So your training will have to be “alive” and combat diversified!

In many of my street fighting videos, I have defined a street fight as a spontaneous and violent confrontation between two or more individuals where no rules will apply. A real street fight is not about the boxing ring, rules and regulations or any combat sports competition. It’s about protecting yourself and your loved ones from serious bodily injury and possibly death.

YOU NEED TO STUDY STREET FIGHTING LIKE A SCIENCE…

In my instructional Street Fighting DVD, Armed to the Teeth, I discuss that one essential part of learning how to street fight is knowing and understanding it from a purely academic perspective. That’s right! Reading books and studying instructional self-defense videos will certainly help you and its an important part of the learning curve that is often overlooked by many people. If you take the time to study street fighting like a science you will be way ahead of your opponent. And that’s what it’s all about – gaining the advantage over your adversary so you can prevail and get home alive in one piece!

THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT STREET FIGHTING

The more you know about the dynamics and characteristics of street fighting, the greater you chances surviving and ultimately winning the fight. There is an old saying in my self-defense school, “The more you know, the less you will fear in the streets”.

To help get you started on your academic journey, here are some important facts about the nature and characteristics of street fighting.

  • A real street fight is fast and explosive, similar to a car wreck.
  • Street fighting is unpredictable and spontaneous.
  • A real street fight isbloody, ugly and brutal.
  • Street fighting is extremely dangerous and can often lead to death.
  • A real street fight usually turns into a ground fight.
  • Most street fighters will target you face and head, also known as “head hunting”.
  • Kicking techniques are seldom used in a real fight.
  • Compound hand strikes are the most attacks common method of attack.
  • There are no rulesin a real street fight which means it is almost always unfair for one of the participants.
  • Spectators enjoy watching a street fight and they often get involved for the hell of it.

In order to win a street fight there are several elements you must posses and ultimately master. The more attention and training you devote to these elements, the greater your chances of winning. In other words, the more you put into street fighting training, the more you will get out of it.

CONVENTIONAL OR EXTREME STREET FIGHTING

Before moving forward, it’s important to distinguish the difference between both conventional and extreme street fighting. So what is the different between the two? To answer this question all you need to do is look to the weapons in a military’s arsenal which includes both conventional and nuclear weapons. The same applies to personal combat, you too must have an arsenal of both conventional and extreme or nuclear weapons at your disposal.

Unlike conventional self defense, extreme street fighting techniques are nuclear in nature and designed to immediately stop a criminal from continuing his unlawful deadly assault. Extreme street fighting techniques can possible cause severe injury or death and can only be used in life and death self defense situations! These self defense techniques are not designed for sport combat, tournament competition or any self defense situation that does not justifiably legally warrant the application of deadly force.

Unlike other self defense systems, Contemporary Fighting Arts recognizes the distinction between conventional and extreme street fighting situations and I have designed three unique street fighting programs that will give you the knowledge, skill and power to survive a life and death combat situation. These programs include: The Widow Maker Program, Feral Fightingand Savage Street Fighting. .

LET’S TALK ABOUT CONVENTIONAL FIGHTING

For the purposes of this article, I am only going to address conventional street fighting techniques and scenarios. So now I’m going to share with you some of the fighting techniques that are taught in my Contemporary Fighting Arts self-defense system. These reality based self-defense techniques are strictly designed for real street fights and should not be used in sport oriented training.

You can learn more about these street fighting techniques in any of my self-defense videos and books. It’s my hope that you can use these helpful guidelines to reduce your chances of criminal victimization and help you win the street fight, both in the streets and the courtroom.

LEARNING HOW TO STREET FIGHT REQUIRES A GOOD STANCE

Before I show you any actual fighting techniques, you need a posture or stance that will maximize your offensive techniques and provide defensive protection. In my Contemporary Fighting Arts, I teach my students a broad scope of strategic stances that protect your center line during a street fight. But for purposes of this how to article, I will only address the fighting stance. But, in order to better appreciate the fighting stance you should have a basic understanding of the center line theory.

Basically, the center line is an imaginary vertical line that divides your body in half. Located on this line are some of your most vital anatomical targets that you must protect in a street fight.

These targets include the eyes, nose, chin, throat, solar plexus and groin. Your center line is best protected by using a fighting stance that strategically position your targets away from direct hits.

Proper weight distribution is another important factor. When squared off with your opponent, always try to maintain a fifty percent weight distribution. This non committal weight distribution will provide you with the ability to move in any direction quickly and efficiently. At the same time, it will provide you with the necessary stability to withstand and defend against various blows and strikes during the street fight.

I know this might sound trivial but its worth mentioning to a beginner who wants to survive and hopefully win a street fight. Keep your chin slightly angled down when you assume any type of fighting stance. This placement will initially seem strange to you but its what every boxer, kick boxer and mma fighter will do when they square off with an opponent. Lowing your head and chin make you a more elusive target and also helps minimize direct strikes to your eyes, nose, jaw, chin and throat. However, avoid forcing your chin down too low during the fight. This will inhibit the mechanical fluidity of your tools and techniques and ultimately slow you down during a street fight.

Simply learning how to use a fighting stance is not enough to win a fight. You will need to remember to stick to the fundamental techniques of street fighting. For example, always keep both of your hands up when fighting with your opponent. Avoid the natural tendency to lower your hands when fighting. This will leave you wide open to a possible counter attack in a hand to hand combat situation.

Remember, when executing a punch or strike to always keep your other hand up to either defend against a counter strike or follow up with another strike. One of the best ways to train yourself to keep your hands up when fighting is through simulated street fighting, full contact sparring sessions and punching bag workouts.

CAN YOU FIGHT IN ALL THREE COMBAT RANGES?

A street fight is dynamic and unpredictable. One second and you will be kicking, the next you might be fighting on the ground. If you want to win a street fight you must know how to fight in all three distances of combat. They include the following:

  • Kicking Range – this is the furthest distance of unarmed street fighting. At this distance, you would use your legs to strike your adversary.
  • Punching Range – this is the mid-range of unarmed street fighting. At this distance, you are able to effectively strike your assailant with your hands.
  • Grappling Range – this is the third and final range of unarmed street fighting. Grappling range is divided into two different planes (vertical or horizontal). In the vertical plane, you can generally deliver impact techniques. Some include: elbow and knee strikes, head butts, gouging and crushing tactics, biting and tearing techniques. In the horizontal plane, you are ground fighting with your adversary and can deliver all the previously mentioned techniques, including various submission holds, locks and chokes.

THINGS YOU NEED TO LOOK FOR

Here are three critical factors to consider when deciding where to look when engaged in a street fight. They include:

  • Distance of combat – what is the proximity of your opponent? For example, is he standing 15 feet from you or is he in your face threatening you?
  • Confrontation type – street fighting can take on many different forms. You will need to ask yourself, exactly what type of confrontation stands before you? Are you are faced with a de-escalation situation or a surprise attack from behind that requires immediate tactical response.
  • Armed or Unarmed – what type of combat altercation are you faced with? Is your opponent armed or unarmed? For example, in street fighting, what type or weapon is the assailant holding (i.e. handgun, knife, baseball bat or heavy chain). Avoid using flexible weapons (chains, belts, key chains, etc.) in a real street fight. For example, some self defense instructors advocate using a kubotan as a flexible weapon by flailing the key portion across an attacker’s face. Such flexible weapons are ineffective for fighting in the streets. Here are some reasons why:
    • Flexible weapons are difficult to control in a fight.
    • They lack the necessary amount neutralizing force required to stop a tough opponent in his tracks.
    • They lack quick retraction and must follow through the complete range of motion before being used again.
    • The act of swinging a weapon often exposes and opens up your body targets to a variety of possible counters.
    • Flexible weapons often get snagged or tangled on your assailant’s body or limbs.

WINNING A STREET FIGHT REQUIRES DEFENSE SKILLS

Defensive technique are just as important as offensive skills. There are seven defensive technique you have to master in order to win a fight. They include:

  • Distance – this is the spatial relationship between you and your opponent. You must be able to manipulate and exploit distance or range to your advantage.
  • Stance – the strategic posture you assume prior to or during a street fight. This is your fighting vehicle that maximizes both the offensive and defensive capabilities of you your fighting arsenal.
  • Mobility – the ability to move your body quickly and freely while balanced. This will require using strategic footwork skills to transport your body through the different ranges of both armed and unarmed combat.
  • Blocking – your various defensive tools designed to intercept your assailant’s oncoming blow during the street fight. Avoid reflexive blinking when a punch or kick is thrown at you during a real street fight. A split-second blink could leave you vulnerable to the opponent’s blow. Blinking is a natural reflex. As a matter of fact, the eye blinks every two to ten seconds. However, reflexive eye blinking during a physical attack can be eliminated with proper self-defense training. For example, during sparring and full-contact simulated street fighting sessions, you must make a conscious effort to keep your head forward and your eyes open amid flying blows. This skill, of course, will take time and above all – courage.
  • Parrying – your various defensive tools that redirect your assailant’s blows.
  • Evading – defensive maneuvers designed to strategically move you away from your assailant’s blow.
  • Attacking – offensive action designed to physically control, injure, cripple or kill your assailant in a real street fight.

For those of you how want to learn more about mastering the seven defensive techniques, see my Defend or Die: Defensive Skills for Street Combat Video.

THE BEST OFFENSIVE STREET FIGHTING TECHNIQUES AT YOUR FINGERTIPS

You have fourteen body weapons or street fighting techniques that you have at your disposal at all times. When properly executed these techniques have the capacity to disable, cripple and even kill your criminal adversary. Keep in mind that whenever you use physical force against another person in a street fight you must be absolutely certain that your actions are legally warranted and justified in the eyes of the law. Therefore, you should have a fundamental understanding of the law so you will know when it’s appropriate to use force against another person in a fight. Moreover, you will also need to know how much physical force can be applied in a fight without facing excessive force charges.

Since I’m on the subject of offensive techniques, I’d be remiss if I did not tell you that you should never use probing techniques or feelers in combat, like a boxer’s jab, in an attempt to test and assess your opponent’s fighting style and general abilities. This is actually a popular sparring tactic that has no place in a real street fight.

Another example of what not to do is to judge the skill of a knife fighter by the way he holds his weapon. The bottom line is, you should always assume that your adversary is an expert in all forms of street fighting combat. You must always respond to what the assailant is doing in the fight and not what he seems capable of doing. Deal with the here and now and not the what ifs!

During an actual fight, you will be under a tremendous amount of stress. This often causes many people to tense up and actually hold their breath as they are fighting. Breathing is one of the most important and often neglected aspects of real street fighting training. Proper breathing promotes muscular relaxation and increases the speed and efficiency of your compound attack. The rate at which you breath will also determine how quickly your cardiorespiratory system can recover from a real street fight encounter. NOTE: Remember to always exhale when executing a striking tool or technique in a real street fighting situation.

Whenever you are squared off with a dangerous adversary and there is no way to safely escape the situation, you must strike first, strike fast, strike with authority, and keep the pressure on. This offensive strategy is essential to the process of neutralizing a formidable adversary when street fighting. A first strike is defined as the strategic application of proactive force designed to interrupt the initial stages of an assault before it becomes a self-defense situation. 

Telegraphing is another thing to keep in mind when using your street fighting techniques. Essentially, telegraphing means unintentionally making your intentions known to your assailant during the fight. There are many subtle forms of telegraphing which must be avoided in when street fighting. Here are just a few:

(1) Cocking your arm back prior to punching or striking.
(2) Tensing your neck, shoulders or arms prior to striking.
(3) Widening your eyes or raising your eyebrows.
(4) Shifting your shoulders.
(5) Grinning or opening your mouth.
(6) Taking a sudden and deep breath.

The only way to stop your opponent in a fight is to inflict enough damage so he is incapable of further aggression. This means you have to know what anatomical targets are available for you to attack in a fight. This is actually important form both offensive and defensive reasons. Essentially, this means you have to assailant’s anatomical targets are located in one of three possible target zones.

  • Target zone one is the opponent’s head and it consists of vulnerable targets related to the assailant’s senses. They are the eyes, temples, nose, chin, and back of neck. 
  • Target zone two includes the neck, torso, groin and all of them relate to the assailant’s breathing. They include the throat, solar plexus, ribs, and groin.
  • Target zone three are the legs and feet and consists of anatomical targets related to the assailant’s mobility. They include the opponent’s thighs, knees, shins, instep and toes.

Striking techniques alone won’t be enough. You must learn a variety of ground fighting skills and techniques if you want to cover all your bases. This often creates a problem as many people who want to learn how to street fight because the submission fighting techniques taught Brazilian jujitsu (BJJ) and mixed martial arts (mma) schools are not created or designed for real street combat. You will have to find functional and pragmatic ground fighting techniques that can readily be applied in a real world self-defense situations.

So there you have it. I’ve managed to outlined some of the most important concepts an principles you will need to study and master to prevail in a street fight. Also, don’t forget the plethora of street fighting resources on my web site. They are designed for people who really want to learn how to fight, people like you!

Best of luck in your training!
