Tony, how do you overcome (in a street fight) when an attacker goes for your balls? I was simply play fighting with my friend the other day, I had him beat with a guillotine choke and all he had to do was grab my nuts untill I gave up. This was kind of a cheap shot but it got me thinking that in a real fight, attackers arn't going to play fair. Can you give me any advice on which submission move(s) to perfect where my balls arn't within reach?? :-)
Good message Danny and not much to add...if you
had little little balls that would be harder for others
to grab...(that was a joke and everyone better be
laughing the nuts off...that was two jokes for price
The philosophical reality is: "you should not be
using sport tools in place of street tactics"
Bottom-line as Danny implied, if it were a real fight
and you cranked the throat...well, in the world of
'barter' the thraot is more valuable than the balls,
my bet is he'd of let go.
I HAVE ENCOUNTERED SIMILIAR PROBLEMS AS WELL. EX. DOING SOME 30 PART AWESOME JOINT LOCK/ KNIFE DISARM ON A FRIEND, AND HE JUST GRABBED THE KNIFE WITH HIS OTHER HAND. REALITY HAS A WAY OF SOBERING YOU UP. OF COURSE, BETTER SOBER THAN DEAD ( AND THAT MEANS SOMETHING, I'M IRISH !)
Same topic, different perspective.
When I teach LEO DT, often someone says "I'd just kick him in the balls" as if that was the end of the problem. dve's above response also addresses this.
In a real confrontation, i kicked a fellow belligerent party goer in the groin three times in row ! only after the altercation ended did he feel it. By the way, he felt the eye poke immeadiately.
just an observation.
