I ended my last post with a suggestion to use the bad guy’s expectations (fantasy script) against him. Allow me to amplify.
He grabs you by the wrists (the most common “attack”). He expects you to attempt to pull away. Strength against strength. He knows if you do that, he has a distinct advantage. Blow his mind away by first pulling away (what he expects) and then waiting for him to “win the fight (in his mind)” by pulling you hard toward him. When he pulls you, he expects you to stumble defeated and lifelessly toward him, but, now, you are going to be a confident and ready warrior and you are going to propel into his center-line targets like a beast. Many of his center-line targets are what I call Kill Switches.
- Drive the palm of your free hand hard into his groin. Repeatedly.
- Drive the palm of your hand into his chin and drive his head up and back as if trying to knock it off his shoulders.
- Growl like the animal you’ve become and bite his nose off.
Or, maybe the bastard is able to grab you and pull you in close. He expects you to melt in fear. He expects that he has won. Use this against him by, at first, relaxing your body and make that he has won, maybe even pretend to return his caress. Place the back of your head on his shoulder and move the hand closest to his head around to his opposite cheek. Now, quickly, drive your thumb into his eyes and use the side of your head to prevent him from moving his head away. Once he relinquishes his grip on you, begin to assail him with strikes, bites, head butts, etc.
There are hundreds of surprise techniques I have in my Hammer Survival Blueprint. But I am sure you get the idea.
Stay safe. Be Confident. Be an Animal.
