In Two Weeks!
The Problem with Most Martial Arts
How to Become a Lethal Weapon in Two Weeks! – The Problem with Most Martial Arts I’ve seen many a martial arts expert with all the colorful belts and flying kicks gets beat up in the streets.
It’s just like taking a highly trained circus lion and throwing him into the jungles of Africa. He just won’t be able to survive in the wild, despite his fancy jumps, rolls, and acrobatics.
I hate to say it because I’ve spent many years in martial arts schools and on sparring mats; and I learned a lot. But these days, it’s all about colorful belts, expensive uniforms, and monthly dues i.e. money.
Inside the school, there are rules and there are restrictions. But out in the streets, there’s only one rule, and that is “There are no rules!” That means, anything goes. You have to use any means necessary in order to survive and live to talk about it.
With most martial arts, you have to learn complicated and weird moves that don’t feel natural at all. It’s no wonder it usually takes years to learn to use them effectively. This is why Bruce Lee decided to create an art that was “formless” – so that he could easily adapt to whatever attacks the opponent threw at him. He wasn’t limited to a particular style.
Most street fighters operate the same way. They have learned the hard way that anything goes.
Most martial arts consist of too many techniques that you have to learn and remember. So, when it comes time to actually use them, most people get so overwhelmed and confused that they simply aren’t able to remember any!
Martial arts schools teach you to wait till your opponent strikes and then you can defend yourself. You are not to ever strike first.
Out in the streets, he who strikes first wins! There are no second chances. If you don’t strike first, your opponent will. And there is a very good chance that he’ll continue to strike while you continue to block. Eventually, he will be able to get a few good ones in there and take you down. That’s just the reality of the streets.
So that is exactly what you have to do. You have got to strike first! If you’re caught in a dark alley and you’ve got a 6-foot monster coming at you with an expression on his face that clearly says “you’re dead,” guess what, you have to shoot first and ask questions later. Because if you don’t, there is a good chance that you’ll never leave that alley alive.
One of the most popular martial arts, Karate, requires you to build a certain amount of strength in order to execute effective punches and kicks. And even then, if you run into a guy twice your size, your punches and kicks may not work as well as you think they would.
Let’s face facts here… The average guy does not have years to learn complicated moves or build up enough strength into his strikes. And he certainly doesn’t have the money to throw away in learning an art for years and still getting his butt kicked out in the streets.
This is why many trained martial artists, who perform very well in the ring, get their butts kicked out on the streets.
And this is why you need to do things differently, in order to survive out on the streets.
New Understandings & Learnings
In order to survive an attack out in the streets, you have to break most of the fighting rules that you’re currently familiar with. You have to realize that the only rule is “survival” – take them down or be taken down yourself.
What you will learn in this manual is a system that has taken me several years to put together. You are very fortunate in that sense. I have managed to take the very best from everything I learned and put it together into a very simple, but lethal system.
I have studied the fighting methods of the armed forces, the navy seals, the Russian special forces, and some of the best full contact “no rules” fighters of the world, including the Israelis – one of the most feared hand-to-hand fighters on the globe. And, of course, I have spent my share of years studying various forms of martial arts, including, karate, kung fu, jujitsu, aikido, kickboxing, and others.
What I’ve learned over the years is this…
To win a fight, you have to use moves that are easy to learn, simple to execute, and quick to work!
You have to use moves that do not require much strength to be effective, and can work just as well on a small person as on a giant. Size or strength should not matter much.
And most importantly, you don’t need to learn 101 different techniques and strikes. You only need a handful of them that work well in just about any situation!
Always remember that knowing more is not the answer. It’s what you can effectively apply and execute those matters. It doesn’t matter how much you know; it only matters what you can use!
Out on the streets, there are no rules!
That means, anything goes. Whatever it takes to save yourself and take the attacker down!
Don’t wait for him to strike. If you sense danger, strike first and end the fight quickly, before it gets to a life-threatening stage.
Use anything at your disposal. Use your environment and surroundings. Use whatever is available. That means, walls, bricks, trashcans, beer mugs, tire irons, baseball bats…hair pulling, groin kicks, and yes, even biting in extreme cases.
Don’t wait for a technical knockout. Hit till the attacker’s down, then get out of there fast.
Keep your distance! Don’t wait for the attacker to come close enough to swing a punch at you. Get him before he gets too close.
When you attack, don’t just use the strength of your hands and feet. Put your entire body weight behind your strikes. Push with your entire body.
And finally, use your head!
Avoid being a target in the first place. Prevention is always better than cures.
Don’t purposely get caught in situations where your life can be put in danger to begin with. Avoid dark alleys and unknown shortcuts. If you’re not sure that it’s safe, it probably isn’t.
Whenever possible, take another person with you. Go when it’s brighter or busier. When in doubt, don’t.
If you sense danger up ahead, cross over to the other side of the street, or take a different street.
Be aware of your surroundings. I don’t want you to turn into a paranoid freak, just learn to pay attention. If you end up in a new club, or new neighborhood, turn your awareness up a notch. If you happen to notice any shady characters around, keep your distance and be aware of their movements.
Keep a confident, alert posture at all times. Many times, the attacker will pick weaker targets if he has any choice in the matter.
Remember, they’re also trying to get things over with quickly so they can leave without getting caught or being seen (identified) by others. If you seem like too much work for them to deal with, they will move on to a weaker target.
Of course, there are times when things can happen despite all your precautions. And that’s what this manual is for.
So, let’s get to it…
