I like to thrust my open hand like I'm gonna grab their throat, but just thrust it into the throat without grabbing them.. Most cops and MP's do that to subdue someone real quick..
Either that, or shoot in for the knees and apply a choke or heel hook..

Too many variables for one difinitive answer. I like joint locks/arm bars personally as I can obtain and maintain control of my opponent and either take him completly to the ground or keep him partially upright to act as a shield against multiple attackers. (After softening them up of course. Perhaps an eye strike, groin kick, ear slap, etc.) An upper fake hook as I twist into a low downward round kick targeting the side of the knee can be quite effective as well. Personally, I would predominately only be fighting for self defense and I would match force with the apparent intent of the would be assailant. You strike at my throat and I am going to assume you mean me grave harm. Expect deadly blows reciprocated ad hoc. You have a knife, forget about it, dead man walking.
Chances are, if you are asking this question, any attempt to take someone down who has a fair amount of training may not end up in your favor.

Watch Bass Rutten's Leathal Street Fighting video "everyone underestimates the kick to the balls" lol. If it's a street fight then by all means kick em in the balls first then proceed with a punch preferably as was mentioned earlier to the throat.

People underestimate a punch to the gut... I've "seen" many a man go down with a punch to the stomach. Likely they have a good chin and are not expecting it, with the wind knocked out of them they hunch over pretty easy.
I call it the Houdini.

Depends on the person and how they measure up to my size. In all honesty if you go into a fight looking for one particular take down and don't get it off you're screwed. The best bet is to avoid them all together. If you have to fight then it's best to learn to protect yourself over taking someone down.

Shoot-style wrestling, BJJ and Wu-Shu, all informal training.. Took TKD for 4 months, boring and they wanted me to do tournaments all the time since I was the biggest in the class..

Kajukenbo (mix of Karate, Judo, JiuJistu, Kenpo and Gung Fu)
Grappling (Similar to BJJ)

16 oz gloves are standard boxing size and wraps are good to use for wrist and hand stability. One of the reasons Fedor Emelianenko has broken his hand several times is because he does not wrap his hands.

Definitely wear a mouthguard; it will help to lessen the impact on your head and so you don't have as many cuts in your mouth.Originally Posted by khan8

This is a interesting question. I am interested in learning Krav Maga which is a Israeli self defense and disarmment Martial Art. Seems very interesting.
06-18-2006, 08:42 PM
They teach this at my Kajukenbo school. I have not taken it but it looks to be pretty down and dirty. I like it but I prefer learning a softer style art that can be mastered and used effectively even as an old man. I can't see my self doing Krav at 70.Originally Posted by asap nutrition

Krav needs alot of force, tai chi (not the americanized exercise in your pj's type) is more fluid and can be done no matter how old you get..
06-18-2006, 09:08 PM
ok so this is what i ordered/will order:
pairs of 180 inch wrist wraps
16 OZ boxing gloves (they have sparring gloves on ringside.com, should i get those or 16 OZ gloves?)
is that all?
06-18-2006, 09:10 PM
Exactly. The Kajukenbo style I take is Tum Pai and has a lot of Tai Chi incorporated.Originally Posted by bigpetefox

these are the gloves im looking at BTW:
Top Contender Super Soft Training Gloves at Ringside.com
oh and one more thing, are these mouthguards good for protection?
Double Guard Mouthpiece at Ringside.com
sorry if it seems like i am asking too much i just would like to make this safe as possible when we box.

You may want to get a pair of gloves with laces instead of velcro so they last longer...or you could just reinforce the wrist with tape.Originally Posted by khan8
