Dealing with a continuing attacker, practically the attacker after his first attack probably also after one or two counter attacks of yours, managed to continue. The principle here is responding to the opponent’s response. Here you start with the defense, continue with the counter attack and then you have to defend yourself again. So, defend, attack, defend. This is the principle here. We should train on different situations. Start training slowly and pick up the speed. Naturally, the attacks can be with a weapon and then with a leg or the hand, with the hand or the leg and then a weapon, or with a weapon and then a weapon.

The moment we are defending and counter attacking, we should be ready for the opponent’s response. If the opponent is responding with another attack, we will need to deal with it. If the opponent is responding by falling to the ground, by moving away, by continuing in any other direction for instance to grab a weapon, we should be ready for it and we should be responding. Practically changing our actions according to your opponents reaction. This is the warrior level.

A. Takedowns - Cavalier Leverage on the Wrist Joint

  1. Backward - step diagonally backward while securing the attacker's hand.
  2. Forward - advance forward against resistance.
  3. With an elbow strike - done as in numbers 1 or 2.

B. Escaping Holds in a Sitting Position (using previous principles and techniques)

  1. Methods for getting up from a chair – in place, forward, sideways, backward.
  2. Falling backward from a chair
  3. Escaping from chokes; four directions
  4. Escaping a headlock from behind

C. Defending an Attempt to Throw (attacker coming from front or side)

  1. Attacker approaches to grab clothing or body, low or high – prevention
  2. Attacker grabbed and attempts to throw – appropriate push, lower central mass and attack.

D. Defending Stick Attacks

  1. Against a swing from below (cricket, golf) – stabbing defense
  2. Against an overhead swing coming from the side – turn and step.
  3. Against a horizontal swing from the side – 2 forearms (one high, the other high or low)

E. Defense Against Knife Attacks from Various Angles

  1. Defense against an attack from the rear – move, defend and counter so as not to get stabbed by the second attack.
  2. Defense against straight knife attack from the side – turn to the dead side.
    1. Against a high straight stab (neck)
    2. Against a low straight stab (ribs)
  3. Defense against an assailant attacking from various angles (including from behind) – with elements of surprise.

F. Defense Against Handgun Threats

  1. Gun at the side held against defender's side (ribs), behind arm
    1. Deflect, turn and wrap.
    2. Deflect turn and grab with back hand
  2. Handgun held against defender's side (ribs), in front of arm.
  3. Gun threat from behind, held against the back - train defense for various heights (from lower back up to head level).
    1. Turn to either side – wrap of arm.
    2. Turn to dead side – grab with back hand.

G. Dealing with a Continuous Attacker – Whilst Defending Against Previously Learnt Punches and/or Strikes

Attacker launches a second attack during counteractions that the defender is doing against the first.

H. Correct Decision Making

  1. Defend against (unknown) attacks, from a variety of angles, distances, directions, etc'
  2. Responding to opponents reactions –
    1. Following with kicks (and punches) an opponent that retreats or moves sideways.
    2. Following with kicks and punches, according to changes in distance and ranges against an opponent that moves to any direction.

I. Overcoming Disorientation Caused by an Attack (groggy)
Problem: Defender suffering pain and/or concussion resulting in inability to breath or function, the defender's tendency is to remain in standup fighting.
Solution: Fall sideways, softly to the ground, with legs toward the opponent, counterattack.
Advantage: Taking the initiative recuperates; improving position.
Disadvantage: against more than one attacker; problematic terrain

J. Simulations of Real-Life Situations/Scenarios

Dealing with an attacker outside or while seated in a car.

K. Fighting Drills

  1. Mental training – improving and deepening.
  2. Slow fighting and light fighting exercises.
  3. Elements of CQB – wall, corner (inside, outside), door, staircase.
  4. Simulated “real” fighting with protective gear.
    1. Students will be tested in two rounds of fighting.
