There are old kung fu martial arts fans and combat fighting fans arguing between traditional Chinese martial arts and modern fighting forms, such as boxing, boxing, and Muay Thai, who is powerful?

In fact, any martial art and combat originated from battlefield fighting, the purpose of which is to eliminate the opponent or disarm the opponent’s combat effectiveness, and the principle of fighting and killing is the same as the survival of the fittest in nature. For this reason, there are many pictographic fists in Chinese martial arts, such as: tiger fist, snake fist, monkey fist, eagle claw fist, etc., these fists imitate and learn the unique fighting advantages of these creatures in nature and attack the weakness and fatal weakness of the other party to achieve the purpose of defeating the strong with weakness.

Therefore, when we understand the above truth, we know that there is no strongest fighting art in this world, only the most suitable fighting art. Because any species has the most lethal weakness, as long as it hits the opponent’s Achilles heel, it will have a chance of surviving the fight.

Modern fighting, boxing, Muay Thai and other ring competitions are precisely forbidden to attack the weak and lethal parts of the human body, and the corresponding rules such as weight are stipulated, so they are just a game like football matches.

However, in real life, when you encounter a gangster who is extremely vicious, fighting with them is not a game. In particular, victims who are physically and physically weak can only protect themselves by applying the principle of survival of the fittest in nature, rather than the rules of the game in the ring.

Fortunately, there are now tools such as surveillance and cameras in public places that can be used as a means to restore the scene as evidence to legally prove that they are legitimate defense.

Therefore, when we encounter illegal infringement, our first choice is to avoid conflict and leave the scene. When conflict is unavoidable, when the gangsters are already vicious, attack their physical weaknesses, protect themselves, and leave evidence.

Introducing the “Eight Fighting Tricks” in traditional Chinese martial arts.

Eight dozen tricks 1: A dozen eyebrows and eyes

The eyes are not protected by bones and large muscles, and it is difficult to withstand slight blows from external forces.

Actual combat case: When our side launches an attack, we can use the feint tactic of hitting the fingers. Our front leg kick strikes the enemy’s knee and shin bone, and whether the kick is hit or not, we will stick our forehand into the enemy’s eye.

Eight dozen tricks 2: Two dozen ear root temples

The bone in this area is fragile and has an artery and a large number of nerves concentrated subcutaneously. Hitting here can cause the enemy nerve to be shocked and cause concussion.

Actual combat case: When the enemy attacks our chest and abdomen with a positive kick, we immediately dodge sideways, and at the same time swing the wrist of the enemy’s ear root.

Eight Dozen Trick 3: Three Dozen Heart Nests

The so-called fossa is the median depression under the xiphoid process of the sternum (heart bone), which is the distribution area of the solar plexus, where the diaphragmatic plexus, gastroesophagus, aorta and inferior vena cava are distributed. If hit violently, the blood vessels will expand due to external pressure, causing the heart to beat rapidly or stop beating and suffocation.

Actual combat case: Our side adopts the feint attack tactic of finger up and down to take the initiative to attack, first attacking the enemy’s eyes with the finger to force the enemy to defend, and then slamming his heart with a heavy punch, or you can use a bullet leg kick.

Eight Dozen Trick 4: Four Dozen Knees

The knee joint is composed of two joints, but it is very fragile, and it is easy to dislocate or fracture after a strong blow, and the meniscus is ruptured, causing the enemy to collapse.

Actual combat case: When the enemy attacks us with its side legs, our side uses our toes to kick the enemy’s knees while flashing sideways; Or when actively attacking, kick sideways with your foot hard.

Eight dozen tricks 5: Five dozen lips on the people

The middle part of the lip is the junction of nasal cartilage and hard bone, and the nerves are close to the cortex, which is the key part of the face. A heavy blow can make the enemy faint, and a light blow can also make the enemy feel severe pain.

Actual combat case: The traditional martial art of back flipping is an excellent punch to hit this part, and Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do has this punch. In actual combat, when the enemy attacks us with a straight fist, our side uses one hand to block it, while the other hand uses a flip back fist to hit the enemy with lightning speed.
