Knocking Out A Person With one Punch
If you’re lucky, you never have to defend by physical violence. But if that time never comes, or never enrolled in a club to fight against his will, would you know what? You saw punches thrown on TV a bunch of times, but do you really know how to throw a right?
Disclaimer: Despite knowing the drill bases is useful, is not enough to defend itself adequately without practicing. Certainly not for you to go out and pick a fight, but everything should be smart enough to figure that out on your own.
basic self-defense moves Anyone can do it (and everyone should know)
Would you be able to defend you and your family if someone were to attack you physically? …
We asked some experts to help us learn the proper method of drilling. We martial artists Aiman Farooq, Christopher Waguespack Keith Horan, and Pete Carvill boxer. Our professionals show you the right way to make a fist, the right way to guide your wrist, what part of the person to hit and what to do after the coup. The aim is to launch an effective strike without hurting themselves in the process.
How should my hand and which part of it should contact?
When being drilled, the key is to know that the thumb should be outside his fist, between its first and second phalanges of the index and middle finger. “If the thumb is inside by hitting a hard target that will break your thumb,” said Farooq. Horan told to make sure the thumb is hidden under his curved fingers, to be out of the way of impact . Chris Waguespack added:
You do not want to keep your thumb on the side of your index finger (as if holding a frog or something in hand). Instead you want to take your thumb and envelope down through the bottom of the curved fingers. You also want to keep their fists clenched, “but not so tight that the cutting start of traffic. It is important, in the martial arts, to remain fluid yet powerful.”
As regards its fingers:
There are different schools of thought on whether to undergo the knuckles of his index and middle finger point a little further when drilling in order to make the most (which is usually accentuated more traditional styles). I would say it is more a matter of personal preference and you should do what feels natural. Technically though it might work a little better when drilling specifically at certain pressure points instead of going strictly on impact.
Horan recommends a right punch, making the most martial artists, which looks like a fist “cross” in boxing.
[It is] known as a punch front, or front knuckle Two Punch. It is extremely important that the first two fingers are aligned with the bones in the forearm to the maximum structure in order to avoid injury. Generally people will knock his knuckles / pink ring and break your hand (known as rupture name of a boxer) and prevents clearly their ability to fight.
Waguespack said the main reason why people hands hurt when they hit someone “because the floors are bored with their fingers instead of his fingers.”
When you see people shaking hands after a stroke, it is usually due to sudden, usually with the wrong part of your hand. Many people think that you punch with the right fist. The truth is that your goal is to hit the first two phalanges. To achieve this, it is necessary to slightly tilt your wrist down (which actually strengthens the punch too). Turning the wrist slightly down, he puts his finger on the front of the fingers. also align your wrist with his forearm, which is less likely to bend the wrist backward or down and break it.
Farooq agree that you should pay attention to how the dolls are also considered.
The fist part which should take the impact the flat surface between the second and third phalanges. Want to keep your right wrist on impact to maximize strength there. The most common mistake I see with new students is that you have to bend your wrists forward or backward and hit the top of the hand or the area between the first and second joints and heel of the palm of the hand.
What types of strokes should take?
If you’ve seen a boxing movie or played a fighting game, you know there are different types of punches thrown at different speeds and angles. You might be tempted to throw the biggest blow, heavier than I can, because he wants to end his fast attacking and get out of there, but Carvill said that this is not the best idea. (It is probably the worst idea.)
Instead, it should be the basis of a two (also known as the cross-jab) is pulled. The reason is that one of the two birds travel in straight lines and therefore are more difficult to detect your opponent. For a beginner, your defense will also be stronger. And it must be started from a good position, for example on the right is the video above. You have to throw blows his arms to shoulder height remain. If you have your chin down and punch out straight, shoulders automatically increase and protect your chin. Throw the jab, but do not pull too hard, it is a rangefinder. Then blow his cross.
Where should I target?
Because you want the fight to end as quickly as possible, you are fighting not only to fight against-will neutralize your opponent as quickly and efficiently as possible so you can escape. So you should aim to do?
Keith Horan said that, contrary to what is thought, should not break the face. “What you lack, or commonly badly punch and hit his jaw and broken hand. The punch for the beginner is best used in the body in the chest, or if you are on the side ribs. ”
Pete Carvill suggests a slightly different tactic, but also advises against the head.
If you want to put anyone out of action, the purpose of the throat. When they see the punch coming, they will automatically fall head, bringing his chin in line with his fist. If you bother to remove it hits them in the nose. However, cold-callers in the street (been there and done that, and I’ve never been so scared before or after) is a terrifying experience for the person throwing the punch. If you know how and can pull right or hook to the body. Left hook, trying to hit the liver. Right, you want to put it in the heart. Hitting someone in the body is much more effective and safer than knock on the head. In addition, the heads are solid and blood.
Waguespack also explains why you should mix and go for body shots.
People always think that the objective of the face is a sudden knock once. What they do not realize is that knock out are usually lucky shots. You do not throw a punch and intended to hit the man. If it happens, great, but I was lucky. a fist with the intention to blow cause your opponent to stumble / moving head / blind man / etc is launched, so that the street in a fight, keep your cool and remember that you cause pain to let him down. Look what you have open, shoot them in the face, do not be afraid to hit a side or stomach. Remember that an inexperienced opponent knows nothing of breath when taking a shot, so a single blow to the stomach may be more effective than a bullet in the face.
As for his followthrough not think like a baseball pitcher. Using his hips, monitoring will be natural, even if you hit the back punch after hitting him (as a boxer). This will also prevent you from changing “country” again.
Aiman Farooq, however, said that there are cases where you can go for the head, or more precisely the nose.
When we are talking only a means fight that want to target the face, however, is not going straight directly. You want to come at a slight angle in which is actually hitting the bones of the first plays and moving inside the nose or similar just above the jaw moves inward. The reason is that drilling directly into the nose can be very painful if struck incorrectly. This method maximizes the damage and minimizes the risk.
In the most brutal situations (ie, self-defense) I recommend areas that are hit in the throat and sides of the neck (near the carotid artery). These strikes are severely disrupt breathing allows attackers much easier escape of a situation. If the situation keeps sort of hit you on top of a person who recommend touchpoints are the sternum (using two fingers extended like I mentioned before driving) is drilling forms of a very common style karate, wind can knock a person. However, another point would be very useful is the kidney. Hitting the kidneys can cause severe regression and is very common in boxing.
If for any reason you are knocked down, the best place would be to hit half of the inner or outer thigh. Although it is not as vulnerable to a coup as the other previously described pressure points points here are very sensitive and hit hard enough, it can be very surprising for an opponent and make him fall. these parts, however, the typical attack is a kick.
What should I do?
If you have not been clear now, his punches have to be fast and compact, rather than large oscillations mongers crazy drunk disorders are running. Waguespack said:
Another important part of a punch, is to remember that you must use your hips to maximize power. What I mean by this is that, as you will throw his punch, rolling her hips in his punch. This also forces his shoulder to support the coup, and the participation of its core and causing more torque and power across the punch. Swaying, as it is different from the “country” swing you see so many people. This is a big no-no to throw a punch. A) it is evident B) Wild C) which leaves you wide open if your opponent is faster and D) is just not very effective.
Before and after the coup
KEITH HORAN IS A LAWYER CHANT much noise while beating.
The most important part of the launch of every time: You were screaming. There is a reason karate guy scream: There is fierce, adrenaline gets, and awakens the animal nature in us that will lead us to overcome our fears of the fight. So scream and hit, and do not stop punching until they are on the floor. But do not go there, stay there and go.
As a result of the blow, advanced Carvill helps you have the right followthrough. “Everywhere you drill, the goal of two inches beyond what is piercing through it.” Farooq expands on this point.
Followthrough is very important. Followthrough is, in fact, contrary to what you might believe, which will minimize the pain when throwing a punch. The punch must follow a straight path toward the goal and out away from the goal does not mean that the shot should be slow, but it should not be an extension of the full arm that tracks through followed by hand back straight his face ready for locking.
He also said that the things you do before launching a coup is equally important.
Another key to the drill is how the punch is prepared. Think of any fight I’ve ever seen. Comparison of a boxing match in a drunken brawl. The main difference in the shots is the part before the punch. Boxing has mastered the art of effective and efficient printing. untrained people putting their hands in typical possible to “close” their hits. This is extremely against-productive, because it really reduce the power of his punch and is very telegram. You want to start their forehands from your face and keep your movements tight. How to maximize the power is to involve the whole body and although this is turning his back foot and hip in the punch. With a burst of energy (usually a right cross) is swinging the right foot to the tip of his foot while extending the punch outward and rotate the hips, so it allows you to push the soil and use by the power of your shot. Similarly with a race (more than a quick shot off the front) that can make a lighter touch with your front leg to get a little more power.
Although this is less to do it and more generally fighting real punch boards, it is very important to keep your hands on the face, at the bottom, so the top of the fingers just below his eye level. When you want to hit the drilling from there and ride your hands directly there after the coup.
The drilling philosophy
I want to emphasize that even though you may know how to hit, that does not mean you should, because once you do, things are out of your control. Carvill Pete says:
The most important thing about the drilling is to be the last thing I do. If you can get out of a fight, do so. If you are docked and only want your property, let them lead. There is no sense in trying to be a hero or think you can take on the world. When a punch, changes in the game you might get a beating or worse is released. You can even get a shot at someone and kill them if they get sick or there is something wrong with them (I know two separate incidents in which people were hit once and died, and not a value).
And when he pulled his punch and his opponent is at rest or in recovery,
Run. Outside the gym, I had a street fight where they threw punches. I was seven and has been stopping this tyrant push seven years old at all (she was a child, as well). I pushed him away from her, he attacked me and hit back to clear. Then he ran like hell. Unless you want or need to stay there, no reason to stay.
But if you just want to look like you know how to throw a punch, for example, when shooting a new series Street Fighter fan-made YouTube? Jenn Zuko Boughn, combat instructor, shows us exactly how to do this.
For a real success, the alignment is not only necessary for efficiency, but also to the punch-er is not going to the wound (or more) than the punch-EE.
We are fighters step in the company’s effective illusion, however, and as such we do not want our blows land on something solid. As a teacher a teacher of mine said: “Air does not bleed” (1). Now we’re not firing their “real” on stage or film, it is true, but it must be accurate illusion. As I always tell my students the exhibition match we want to ensure first, but I want to look impressive. A perforation appearance is a beautiful faux look, so I think it’s important for fighters thing to know what it feels like to get hit, so they know what it feels like and since then can do so. This, however, is where martial artists who begin the exhibition match in difficulty. What they do in combat doubles feels wrong for them. Sometimes they prefer “single mast”, which is the worst thing you could do in a film or on stage, for several reasons (2).
The main point, however: the fighters want to stage a) be safe, ie not getting a sudden your partner, and b) look like they have actually landed a blow to your partner.
This shot looks at his base shows across the face. It can be as big as a fist, or small like a rap closely in the future through the cheek. The illusion that we create for an audience is a very powerful blow to the side of the face. Faces of our players are often their resumes, however, you really do not want to do this (even a stuntman). So what we do instead. First, players measure their distance from each other to ensure that the extended fist striker is at least 4 inches of touching the face of the victim. Then:
Attacker: liquidate the arm parallel to the ground forearm
Victim: Place your hands for a sound effect
swivel hips, pushing his fist straight into the air: Attacker
Victim: They react with the side of the face, sound effect
Attacker: Drift ground fist
Victim: the pain of the law
Obviously, the sound effect of the film, it was not done by the actor, which is made by the post-production team. But the main idea is that the fist and the actors’ faces almost end up a foot away, but due to the flattening of the perspective of the perception of a member of the public (or the eye of a camera) it seems that the actors they are much closer and the punch hits home.
Another note: this one looks good when one of the players back to the public. From the side, the space between the actors is clearly visible. Thus, the cameras should be placed strategically, and a proscenium is best for this type of punch. “Sale” of the victim of the reaction is the key to maintaining this illusion.
funny fight scene story / sad: This step involves a slap, not a coup, but it’s a similar idea.
I was part of the choir in a musical time (I will not give names or can insult someone) ago. The director knew he had experience in stage combat, so I ask a slap secure framework for the actor and the actress who plays the cables needed to operate such a slap as a highlight of the artwork. So I did. They tried twice, maybe three times, then the actor (who received the slap) decided that rather really slapped him because “he felt more authentic” Me, of course, pressed him to reconsider.: with enough practice, it looks pretty real and you are a great actor, I’m sure you do not …? Good. I washed my hands of the matter and let him give full left four nights a week for a month.
Of course, you can imagine what happened: one night, the adrenaline was particularly high, or the angle was off, or something. All kinds of strange little nuances perform on stage; when a hand hitting a cheek more. Anyway, the actor was hit very hard tonight. He came backstage between scenes with the annoying red face, discombobulated, and pain. I do not say “I told you” (although I thought). I am glad it was not worse than it was pain (4).
1) Dale Girard, author of child actors, often said that when he taught / directed.
2) real punches simply do not read to an audience are not clear, are not easy to trace in the eye, they are fast. A perforation step is really super great, and the player must indicate enormously. This is something every martial artist in his right mind would. Step fight tells a story, it’s not about fighting. Also, although we like to see Jackie Chan hurt himself making out, or hear about the adventures stunt, injury at work is anything anyone wants. A nasty blow to the face is not an easy thing to be taken again, certainly not over and over, no matter how difficult it is.
3) With this punch (often called the “direct hit”), there is a vaccine (which is the illusion of a live shot of the nose), the against-punch, the snake punch, hook and all kinds of variations with ground fire. You can see some interesting photos behind the scenes extras in Fight Club and student-led videos on YouTube MSCD fight scene chain.
4) The first chapter of my book scene of battle reports an “unfortunate” Thirteen bad things that can happen to a face when there was a real slap.
A big thank you and a bump-fist successfully launched our staff found that the time between drilling objects / people / animals to show us how to do it properly.
