    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.

    Muay thai
    BJJ
    Wrestling

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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..

    Exactly. The Kajukenbo style I take is Tum Pai and has a lot of Tai Chi incorporated.

    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.

    Stick with the 16 oz gloves. Those mouthpieces are a real pain in the ass because they are really hard to fit and restrict your breathing.
    Try this one instead.

    I prefer a handgun, but picking up any object within your reach seems to work well if available. When all else fails and you must use you limbs to strike, give him a solid foot strike to the knee to either hyperextend or break it.

    I promise he will never attempt to mess with you again, nor will anyone else that hears about what you did. Putting someone in a wheelchair for 3 months or longer will make them think twice about ever starting another fight.

    Just be aware that my advice could lead to criminal charges, jail time, a felony, the death penalty, serious injury, death, a lawsuit, or endless hot chicks wanting to bang you. Proceed with caution.

    Consider this carefully. If you try to strike me with a limb, I will reciprocate with equal force untill you are subdued, preferably without causing you serious injury. If you pick up a weapon the chances of me obtaining a favorable outcome of litigation have increased significantly in the event that I do you serious harm. I know many people who look and act as normal as the next guy yet have significant physical and mental abilities allowing them to dominate most physical encounters with ease. Especially against the typical untrained fighter who picks up a weapon that he has no proficiency in yielding. Usually a weapon will delineate the agressors intended strike. If your holding a club in your right hand, chances are you are going to be swinging a club with your right hand. On top of that, if you are not lucky enough to land a strong blow, you will have commited a lot of energy and motion toward a line or sphere allowing a minimal amount of force to send you on a circular journey toward the ground. IMHO
