Self-Defense Tip #57 — Knockouts and other fight enders

Here is a video one of my friends, Karim, posted on his Facebook page with his comment:

K1 Greatest Knockouts

Karim’s comment:

This video shows just how powerful K1 truly is. The best fighting on the planet has been squeezed into this clip. Enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can lock and grapple as long as you like but the striker only ever needs one shot!!!

My comment:

And the grappler too needs only one strangle or one lock. . . .

See the stand-up locks on the DVD Basic Instincts of Self-Defense. Practice them, and with “a little feeling,” you will be ending not just fights but fighting careers. And keep this in mind: A knockout punch cannot be explained as an accident, while a crippling armlock can. How? You just held on to the opponent’s arm to keep it from striking you and then you slipped . . . or twisted out of the way of an incoming punch with the other arm. . . . It can happen. . . . Again check the stand-up locks on the Basic Instincts of Self-Defense DVD, and you will see the potential.

For your defense moves to work under stress they must be based on your natural, instinctive reactions, require little strength and limited range of motion, and be proven in fighting experience.
