Street Fighter Moves – The 4 Best First Strikes to End a Fight Fast and Why You Should Use Them

This is an article about Reality-Based Self Defense and survival.  Before I can even go in the description of the best first strikes, I feel that I need to lay a little ground work by explaining a couple of key RBSF principles:

RBSF Principle #1 – You Must Be Target-Centered and Not Technique-Centered – What this means is that you should not be concerned at all about looking pretty or making the perfect execution of some exotic martial arts move (such as a spinning flying back kick to the face or something else as ridiculous as that) but rather, you must focus on the best target or spot to hit that will cause maximum damage with the least amount of skill necessary for execution.

RBSF Principle #2 – Play Timid, Then Attack First, Fast and Furiously Non-Stop Until The Threat Is Neutralized – This ploy is a bit of psychological warfare in combination with a physical follow-up.  You aim is to strike when the opponent is distracted or not ready. 

With these two basic RBSF principles established, I can now go into the subject to be expounded here:

The 4 Best First Strikes To End A Fight Fast

Best First Strike #1 – Throw Any Drink In To Your Aggressor’s Face – This one is a favorite of Norm, one of my RBSF teachers.  If you are at a club, a party an eatery or any place where you can get a drink of something, this can be used very effectively as a first strike to a flurry of follow up blows.  Any drink will do – even water.  If it is hot coffee, so much the better.  The technique is to extend your arm out fully if possible into the face, in mid-sentence as you are talking to the aggressor.  Avoid short choppy overhanded throws or you may miss hitting the eyes with your drink. 

Best First Strike #2 – Finger Jab To The Eyes – You impair the vision by finger jabbing the eyes using an open palm.  Your fingers should be slightly curved and spread out.  Doing it this way will reduce the likelihood of injuring your fingers.

Best First Strike #3 – Punch Or “Karate Chop” The ThroatIf you punch, or “karate chop” with the side of your hand, the fight is pretty much over – because at that point he is not thinking about fighting you any more, he is only coughing, gagging and panicking as you see him thinking with his eyes wide open in a state of semi-shock, “Can’t breathe!  I can’t breathe!  I must breathe!”

Best First Strike #4 – Spit Into The Attackers Face – You can do it using just your “plain-ole” saliva, or, even more effective is if you are chewing on something like an apple, and just suddenly spit the pulp in his face. He will reflexively raise both of his hands to cover his face. Everything below the neck now is wide open for “the touchdown”. At this point, you can start by kicking the inner thigh just above the knee or just go for the gold – nuggets that is! (You know where I’m talking about – the family jewels!)
