One of the big differences between street-fighting and every other kind of martial art is, in street-fighting everything you do causes your opponent pain — even your blocks.
For example, let’s take the really devastating move called the limb or nerve “destruction.” This is a really nasty move that anyone can use to defend themselves with if they have to.
Here’s how it works:
As your attacker throws a punch or kick, you simply use your elbow (if it’s a punch) or knee (if it’s a kick) to destroy the attack.
In other words, if he throws a jab or punch at you, you “block” the strike with the hard tip of your elbow (just make a movement like you are combing your hair). If he tries kicking you, you “block” the kick with the hard tip of your knee (simply by lifting your heel).
In most cases, you will barely feel a thing. But your attacker will be in a LOT of pain. With his hand crushed or his shin smashed by the force of his own strike. In fact, the harder he hits you…the more pain he will feel!
