There are some 30 different martial arts and self defense styles, philosophies and disciplines I teach in my street-fighting classes and seminars.
Each of these moves and skills are extremely simple, fast and easy to learn, no matter how big, small, fat, skinny, smart or slow a person is.
But by far, the most unorthodox of all these different fighting tactics — the one people actually have a hard time believing and taking seriously — is what’s called the “drunken style.”
This is where you fight in a way where you appear to be…well…drunk.
In other words, you move in a clumsy almost baffoon-like way, just like a sloppy drunk guy blindly stumbling out of a bar would move.
And what happens when you do this is…you lull your attacker into thinking he can easily take you down. He thinks you are super uncoordinated and slow. He may even think you are a little mentally off or just plain stupid.
When this happens, when they think you are some buffoon with two left feet, they get over confident — usually even cocky — and leave themselves open to all kinds of different counter attacks by you. In many cases, they won’t even know what hit them.
This is an incredibly effective strategy that’s not talked about very much. But it works like gangbusters when you do it right.
