A Ready Defense

Have you ever wondered what you'd do if someone was coming at you with a club or bat? This happened to me last week in my martial arts class and I didn't have a clue. I think I just threw up my arm to block but that wouldn't have worked too well in real life - it would have really hurt and it did nothing to stop or disarm my attacker. If you can't run away, here are some options:

Club attack

Stick attack

I figured I would just throw The Boy at them. That's why I pay for all the expensive Jeet Kun Do right?
Thanks for the safety tips! Between you and The Boy, I'm learning so many common sense defenses that I never thought of.

You charge in and block their arm (not the stick). And then you punch them several times in the face, knee them in the balls a couple of times, and get the heck out of Dodge.

Welcome to Krav Maga ;)
