How To Win A Fistfight

How To Win A Fistfight
March 3, 2016 Admin

One of the more frustrating things one sees coming from Europe are the ubiquitous videos of European men getting beaten up my immigrants.

I do not say this because there is anything wrong with getting beaten up by immigrants- anyone who has read Fisfights With Muslims In Europe knows I spent at least as much time doing so as I did the opposite- but rather it is the utterly helpless, beleaguered, effeminate way these men act in the altercations which so offends one’s sensibilities.

It should also be noted that the climate of European cities has changed rapidly just in the last ten years, and today having a immigrant attempt to fight you is very likely to lead to 20 of his friends attacking you as well. I would argue that this is more reason for young European men to do likewise and band into gangs/self-defense units, and learn proper self-defense skills and weapons training.

That is a topic for another day, but because this website attempts to provide value, and set an example of being proactive (being a feeder rather than receiver), we wanted to include at least a couple actionable resources related to fighting.

To that end we have embedded the three videos below. They are not perfect by any means but they do a good job of introducing the subject of fighting, and the question of what the most effective ways to hold one’s own in a fight are.

Look for more posts like this in the future, and a podcast on “The Beginner’s Guide To Picking An MMA Gym”.

    Excellent. You’re one of the few who actually ‘walks the walk.’ I wish more of our young (and old) White men would learn self-defense, MMA, boxing, weapons training.

      That is an awesome link DaShui thanks for posting it! I am actually going to try to reach out to Orlov and see if he would let me republish the Chechyan bit translation. Not sure what his politics are but yeah, it is very valuable in its relevance for the situation in Europe I believe.

    I firmly believe that the “palm strike” is essential. One solid punch with a fist hurts you more than your victim (most of the time). Hitting with the part of your palm opposite the thumb is also more powerful and more efficient. It also forces you to punch straight rather than using the haymaker.
    Well done.

      Hi Matthew-

      Thanks for your comment, and for your readership of the site! I do not have any formal martial arts training so I have just always gone with haymakers 🙂 Hoping to begin MMA Lessons within the next couple months though!

      Have you been involved with martial arts/MMA at all? If so, any recommendations to someone looking to begin them?

    A USMC Drill Instructor showed me a “finishing technique” many years ago that I have remembered ever since because it is so simple and yet so obviously effective. Since other skills have been referenced in the post above, I would like to share it with your community. Obviously, this is for self-defense against a deadly threat and not to be used when just “horsing around” .
    When you get your attacker’s back in a grappling situation, or when you need to take out an enemy sentry, don’t waste time with the “gentleman’s chokes” as taught in judo/BJJ/MMA. These take time to apply and can be recovered from as quickly as any other KO. Instead, grip your hands in front of you, palm-to-palm, right-over-left. Hold them at eye level, with the wrist bone of the right wrist at eye level. The trick is to place that right wrist bone directly on top of the enemy’s Adam’s Apple. At the same time, push your forehead solidly into the natural curve where the base of his skull joins his neck. Violently pull your clenched hand/wristbone toward your own forehead. This will quickly crush his windpipe (while preventing him from crying out). This is probably the #1 unarmed combat technique for a situation where deadly force is justified, because this is damage he won’t be able to walk away from.

    From the AnonCon vault. Speaks for itself:

    Bruce Lee was once asked what technique would he teach someone if that person was going to have to fight for their life in 10 minutes. His answer? The eye jab.

      God that was horrifying man happy that’s never happened to me…

      Speaking of the amygdala, I’ll tell you what just going on AnonCon’s site is hardcore amygdala-stimulating enough by itself for me half the time. Its the only site I know of where I almost get a shot of adrenaline beforehand (seriously) because it has a tendency to unsettle me (when he talks about all of us in this ‘movement’ being under surveillance, when I see eye gouge videos like this, when he talks about antifa blowing people up with ied’s, etc, etc, etc, etc lol).

      Its good though I’m glad he is on our side!

        James LaFond adds footwork to the eye-jab defense in an edged-weapons scenario. (Note the use of protective equipment.)

        This defense should also be practiced against the knife held in the attacker’s left hand. As proficiency improves, the pace can be steadily picked up while keeping balance and “smoothness” as priorities. Once proficiency is attained, trainees should add in some role-playing by the attacker, with posturing, verbal distractions, and other ungentlemanly pre-attack behavior.

          Very good stuff. I was just picturing the same sequence with 1-5 Din-Nuf’s around him doing exactly what you were talking about in your last sentence lol.

          Lafond is great but I always feel ridiculously guilty after watching his videos because I KNOW I should be dedicating time weekly to learning all this stuff but I am so focused on writing/Europe/business that I am not doing so. Huge, huge, huge priority though. I think once my son is like 6 or 7 that will bet he catalyst because I will want to get him into martial arts and will join as well. That of course presupposes things don’t fall apart to the point I desperately need advanced fighting skills and weapons training and don’t have them yet lol.

          Appreciate you linking them on this article. Next time I get the site updated I will add this one and some of the others to the right side of the home page so folks can continue to benefit from them.

            My two cents worth: Since it is so “unathletic”, this particular technique could be “grooved” into your subconscious as an instinctive response with a very small outlay of time. I have begun doing this myself: When I’m shaving or brushing my teeth, I practice bringing my three middle fingers up and jabbing/tapping them on my eye reflection in the mirror. I try to do it suddenly but smoothly, and I don’t involve anything but the hand/arm itself. I think that this is a “quick and dirty” way to practice timing and targeting without adding any more chores to my day.

            My theory is that if this is done enough in a casual situation, it will instantly be available to be called up from my subconscious under stress, without any planning or preparation: See threat, poke threat in the eye. I also get a sort of “wake-up call” through this — it seems to focus my mind on the idea that today might be the day I need this stuff, and now I’m just a little bit readier than I would otherwise be.

            I know what you mean, there’s certain things like headbutts or stuff like this that I like the idea of but I just don’t know if I would ever actually think to do it in the moment with the adrenaline going and everything. I think your onto something with the practice.

            You ever do any MMA or martial arts classes as an adult?

            The rice bucket and the piece of paper…fits the ol’ budget, no?

            That is excellent.

            What did he mean by a ‘coned’ hand re: the rice exercise though? Did he mean a fist or the tips of all five fingers pressed together? (I am presuming the latter).

          • SteveRogers42 1 month ago

            It’s the fingertip thing. The impact with the rice strengthens the tendons for the eye jab, and the action itself provides a mind/body connection for “forming the weapon”.

    Well, if you’re physically fit and have an alert, aggressive mindset, you’ve got 2/3 of the equation covered. The whole point of learning some simple, decisive techniques is to have something productive to channel your adrenaline into, so that you don’t waste time and energy with a less-effective response. One of the things that I have found is that it is important to find a few basic moves that fit YOU — your personality, your physique, and your movement capabilities — and then drill them until the movements are as second-nature as swinging a bat or shooting a jump-shot would be to a ballplayer. If self-defense is one’s goal, there’s no need to “master” the entire curriculum of some traditional martial art, because many techniques will be unsuitable for you to pull off under stress and others will require extreme mobility and athleticism. Instead, it’s better to follow the Fairbairn/Applegate model used to train the OSS and SOE in WW2. They had a relatively brief time to turn marginally-athletic white-collar professionals into agents who had a chance of surviving behind Axis lines. So they stressed mindset, and taught a few very effective techniques that could be used by any healthy adult.

    For instance (and I never get tired of this video) here is an example of the basic edge-of-the-hand blow which was one of the mainstays of the OSS. One simple movement, delivered with 100% commitment to an area that is vulnerable on everyone, no matter how powerful:

    It seemed to work even better for this diminutive female former agent:

      That video is absolutely awesome lol. I had actually never seen a move like that used before in real life, its interesting.

      My entire ‘training’ vis a vis fighting comes down to one season of wrestling in high school, so my actual knowledge or skill base is effectively nil. In the fights I have been in I usually ended up just throwing lots and lots of repeated right hooks, and just using my left to block strikes. I have a very strong right hook (in my opinion) but am probably below average in wrestling ability, so wouldn’t do well being on the ground, and anything to do with my left arm or my legs would be so not intuitive that I probably wouldn’t even think to use them in a fight in terms of offense.

      Its been years since I’ve been in a fight though, which is probably good lol, but I absolutely do need to get started with some MMA/etc again sometime soon. I’m totally ignorant of the science behind it and any success I did have in fights (and they certainly weren’t all successful!) was just brute strength and aggression.

    Improvise, adapt, and overcome. There are weapons all around us, to be accessed in an emergency:

      I had never forgotten that Robin Hood Prince Of Thieves line lol.

      But yeah, that might be the most impressive/memorable combat story I’ve heard.. It seems the spoon must have broken and become sharper though I would think? I would think the flat bottom wouldn’t puncture skin on its own. How did you take it? I was picture him stabbing him with it, mabe the bottom inch of the spoon handle breaking off the first or second time, then the sharp remainder of it going through his neck. Really have no idea though..

      • SteveRogers42 2 months ago

        Yeah, that makes sense. A credit card or drivers’ license, folded back-and-forth until it breaks, makes a surprisingly-sharp slashing tool, so a broken plastic spoon to the carotid artery would have much the same result, only a puncture, not a slash.

      Very painful even to read….

      Favorite part was beginning though:

      “I don’t want to start laying out my playbook, because I assume at some point I will be walking to my car, find myself surrounded, and have to come up with a creative way to break contact and beat feet into the underground railroad shuttling alt-rightists to Eastern Europe, to plot our return after enough K has passed.”
