- 1 Attack first!
How to Recognize Violent Dynamics and Act First for Your Safety
Don’t be tamarro if you don’t want to hit first.
Face to Face in the street is not good! either you hit or you are not close to your attacker because it is not a press conference of a match.
Even today I saw yet another video where two who come face to face and one of the two starts with a single shot and knocks out the person in front.
I also place these videos, place dozens.
Am I a violent man?.
NO, but if you go to my Facebook/Instagram page or my YouTube channel it doesn’t talk about cooking and the fight or real fighting is unfortunately something violent and if you want to learn to really defend yourself you can’t think of facing this by imagining that it’s not violent.
Someone writes to me or tells me it’s cruel to see these scenes of violence and whether it’s right or I like posterity this type of video.
I agree it’s not nice but I’m an expert in self-defense and people ask me how to solve certain situations and what I do is show in these videos what are the dynamics that are created in those situations.
So once you understand that the dynamics are always the same you can work on how to avoid getting into those conditions and if you have the misfortune to find yourself in these situations there are distances, positions of the body and hands to take but still carefully because you do not know if it is right or left-handed but you can understand it from some details and the position it assumes.
Ps. You don’t get certainty and lucidity withball adrenaline is not the best.
I want to point out to you that the dynamics are always the same, the same attitudes,the same distances, the same positions of the hands, etc.
There are many training methods that I have developed specific to this kind of situational conditions from static positions but now I want to explain to you the attitude that you see and it is not what I want you to do unless you want to hurt yourself.
I want you to see it from a different perspective: the one that you’re your hitting.
It’s crucial to understand the timing and dynamics and also what’s very important to learn how to hit from that distance because if you start doing that game you’re putting yourself in a fucking red zone where whoever starts first often get the better of them so what the fuck are you going to do there?
You only go there if you want to hit right away otherwise you have to stay farther and your hands high but in an open position that control the distance.
Rule #1 – Attack First
So the no.1 rule is if you go close it’s to hit and hit first otherwise if you’re not convinced stay away, don’t play hard if you know you don’t have the balls to hit right away.
Rule No.2 is approached by faux dummy, speaking with a remissive attitude and immediately strike with strength and precision.
But what if you don’t like this??
Ok I repeat again stay away.
The pattern you see now is simple but must be applied without moralistic comments that do not interest me in this case where if one approaches you you have to comply with this rule because if you do not the risk becomes too high for you want to know why?.
He’s not coming to talk but to hit you or to bring the tension level to the point of exploding and then hitting you but the end is that he wants to hit you, do it first.
To learn not to be a “prey” you have to train yourself to strike from that distance.
You have to use focus pads but if you only train you can also do it packed but much better focus pads or paos with a training partner.
Personally I use focuses that reproduce a human face to acquire the right precision and I find it very useful, but it is the same if you always look for a certain area on the pad.
There are many possibilities to explore from that distance because you have a high attack line and a low attack to simplify but really, if you don’t want to hit because you’re a good person, you have your morals, I understand But then don’t put yourself in that situation, screw your ego and bring home your life stop end point and that’s okay even if the guy deserves a hard lesson.
But if you get close, don’t do the tamarro but the fake dummy and hit it right away.
Step and Shot and remember, don’t do the tamarro!
Act First: The Key to Self-Defense
The street is not a place for vain confrontations. If you come face to face with a potential attacker, there is no time for unnecessary intimidation.
I have seen countless real-world situations and surveillance videos where one person is knocked out with a single blow after challenging the other in a pointless face-to-face.
Real combat is violent, and if you wish to learn to defend yourself, you must accept this reality.
Although some people may consider this representation of reality raw or violent, I am an expert in self-defense and my goal is to show the dynamics that emerge in potentially dangerous situations. Recognizing these dynamics is the first step to avoiding them or dealing with them safely.
Here are some things to keep in mind:
- Recognize the common dynamics: The same body positions, the same distances, the same attitudes. Once recognized, you can train yourself to respond effectively.
- Attack first: If you approach someone in a potentially dangerous situation, you must be ready to strike first. There is no room for ego in these situations.
- Don’t play hard: If you’re not ready to strike, keep your distance. Approach with a submissive attitude, but always be ready to defend yourself.
- Train properly: Use Focus Pad or Pao with a training partner. Personally, I prefer Focus Pads that mimic a human face to improve accuracy.
Self-defense requires preparation and awareness. There is no room for ego or intimidation. Your safety is the priority. And if you decide to get closer, make sure you make the right move.
Advantages and disadvantages of attacking first in a situation of potential physical confrontation on the street:
- Surprise: Attacking first can surprise your opponent, giving you an immediate advantage in the situation.
- Control: Taking the initiative allows you to control the situation, rather than react to the opponent’s moves.
- Prevent the opponent’s attack: By acting first, you may prevent your opponent from attacking, especially if you can neutralize them quickly.
- Increased security: If you assess the threat correctly and act accordingly, you may reduce your risk of suffering serious injury.
- Improve Confidence: Knowing that you have the ability and strategy to attack first can improve your confidence in confrontational situations.
- Legal Liability: Attacking first could put you in an unfavorable legal position, as you may be seen as the aggressor rather than the victim.
- Wrong rating: If you misjudge the situation and attack a person who was not a threat, you could cause unjustified harm and face both legal and moral consequences.
- Risk of Counterattack: If the initial attack fails to neutralize the opponent, you may expose yourself to a potentially more violent counterattack.
- Social perception: Others may see you as aggressive or impulsive, rather than someone who is defending themselves.
- Internal conflict: Although attacking first may seem like the right choice in a situation, you may later struggle with guilt or moral conflicts about your actions.
Always remember that every situation is unique, and while “attack first” may make sense in some circumstances, in others it may not be the best choice.
Mindfulness Exercises for Self-Defense
Self-defense isn’t just about physical ability; Mental awareness plays a vital role in preventing dangerous situations and responding effectively when they arise. Here are some mindfulness exercises that can help you develop a greater perception of your circumstances and recognize potential threats.
1. Situational Awareness Meditation:
- What: Find a public place, such as a park or square, and sit in a comfortable place. Actively observe people, their behaviors and interactions. Try to notice specific details: who is arguing, who seems nervous, who is trying not to be noticed.
- Because: This exercise helps you develop the habit of actively observing your environment, making you more aware of the dynamics around you.
2. Exercise “What did I see?”:
- What: As you walk down the street or into a building, pause every now and then and ask yourself, “What have I seen in the last 30 seconds?” Try to remember as many details as possible.
- Because: This exercise helps you maintain a high level of awareness of your environment and quickly recognize changes or anomalies.
3. Role-playing of Scenarios:
- What: With a friend, create scenarios where one of you is a potential aggressor and the other has to recognize subtle warning signs. This could include body language, tone of voice, or specific behaviors.
- Because: Simulating scenarios allows you to experiment in a controlled environment, honing your ability to recognize warning signs in real life.
4. “Sixth Sense” game:
- What: When you’re in a public place, close your eyes for a minute and focus your attention on the sounds around you. Try to identify the source of each sound and imagine what is happening around you based only on hearing.
- Because: This exercise helps you develop a greater awareness of your senses, which can provide valuable clues in situations of potential danger.
5. Awareness Diary:
- What: At the end of each day, take a few minutes to reflect and write down any situation in which you felt uncomfortable or perceived a potential threat. Analyze what made you feel that way and how you reacted.
- Because: Regularly reviewing your experiences helps you recognize patterns and develop insights into how to respond better in the future.
By incorporating these exercises into your daily routine, you can develop greater situational awareness, which is critical to preventing and responding to threats. Self-defense begins with the mind, and a careful mind is your first line of defense.
Importance of Prevention in Self-Defense
While the concept of “attack first” is essential in self-defense, it is equally crucial to emphasize the importance of prevention. Prevention is always better than cure, and this also applies in the context of personal safety. Taking preventive measures can significantly reduce the risk of being in dangerous situations.
De-escalation techniques: Before considering the possibility of a physical confrontation, it is always better to try to de-escalate a potentially dangerous situation. Here are some examples:
- Positive Body Language: Maintaining a relaxed posture, avoiding too intense eye contact, and not invading the other person’s personal space can help prevent tension from escalating.
- Active Listening: Often, a potential aggressor only tries to be heard. Showing that you are listening, nodding, or repeating what has been said, can calm the situation.
- Distancing: If you feel that a situation is becoming too tense, increase the distance between you and the other individual. This can reduce the perception of threat.
Preventive strategies: In addition to de-escalation techniques, there are various preventive strategies that can help you avoid dangerous situations in the first place:
- Safe routes: If you know that certain areas are known to be violent or criminal, try to avoid them, especially at night.
- Avoid verbal conflicts: If someone verbally provokes you, it’s often better to walk away than to respond. A simple verbal disagreement can quickly escalate into a physical confrontation.
- Be Environmentally Conscious: Being aware of your environment allows you to recognize potential threats before they get too close.
The ability to defend oneself physically is essential, prevention and de-escalation are equally crucial.
By combining these tactics with proper self-defense training, you can ensure optimal security in any situation.
When it comes to self-defense, the decision to attack first can offer a significant advantage, allowing you to control the situation and potentially neutralize a threat.
It is essential to assess each scenario individually, bearing in mind the associated risks and responsibilities.
Understanding and training are essential to ensure that actions taken are both safe and ethically justified.
Careful evaluation and proper training are key.
Stay Tuned! Attacking first is the best choice!
