Why we never teach punching as a form of self defence.
In 1988, the then undisputed heavyweight boxing champion of the world, "Iron" Mike Tyson got into a street fight in New York with another boxer named Mitch Green. Tyson hit Green with a straight right smashing Greens right eye and ran away from the encounter....In the video above, you will hear Tyson talk about how afraid he felt...We are talking about the "badest Man On The Planet"!
TYSON RAN AWAY FROM THE ENCOUNTER WITH A FRACTURED RIGHT HAND. THIS IS THE REALITY OF STREET FIGHTING.
FIRSTLY IT IS SCARY. NO MATTER WHO YOU ARE.
SECONDLY, EVEN A WORLD CHAMPION CAN BRAKE HIS KNUCKLES USING FIST STRIKING AS SELF DEFENCE.
As the owner of V1 FITNESS, I was born and raised in one of the toughest neighbourhoods in London (Hackney in East London), with several REAL street fights under my belt, real as in not knowing the outcome. I can also confirm that the one time I used my highly trained strong fists on the face of someone, I damaged two of my knuckles exposing the raw bones and lost a lot of blood from my hands.
V1 FITNESS Combative self defence is based on Defendu, the only combative self defence proven by millions during World War and now fully modernised for today's REALITY based street self defence.
In the video below, you will see me demonstarte just how effective no fist striking can be and with no risk of damage to knuckes and wrists.
Seperating the BS from reality.
Anyone teaching or training in fist striking as self defence, firstly has to be questioned on just how REAL (unknown outcome, no rules with a complete stranger) street fights they have actually had?
Secondly fist striking is NOT combative self defence.
Thirdly, teaching women with smaller wrist and forarms that one size fits all and they too can puch with their fists into the hard bone of their assailients face is at best negligent.
