Stick art was the most important form of fighting in the Cold Weapon Age.
Short sticks have a good technical value. The short stick combines the excellent techniques of knives, guns, swords, sticks and whips. It can be like a knife, performing the method of chopping, chopping, and stacking; It can cast points like a sword, prodding and erasing; It can stab and pierce like a gun; It can smash, punch, and cover like a whip; It can slash, pull, hit, and sweep like a stick.
Short sticks also occupy a very important position in self-defense and self-defense in modern society. The armed police have special stick art teaching materials, Bruce Lee’s nunchucks are popular all over the world, and the Philippine short stick art is also a compulsory course for police in many countries.
As an ordinary person, short stick art is a good self-defense fighting technique. Short sticks are not controlled instruments and are easy to carry; At the same time, modern daily necessities can be used as an alternative to short sticks, which are more portable, such as: umbrellas, selfie sticks, baseball bats, flashlights, etc.; The short stick moves are simple, the attack is concealed and direct, and it is easy to learn quickly.
Let’s introduce you to 3 short stick killing moves. They come from Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do Short Stick Technique, which is perfect for self-defense.
First, kick the crotch and split the neck
We stand in a left-hand fighting style, holding a stick in our right hand; The enemy stands in a left-hand fighting style; confrontation between the two sides; Since we are holding a stick, the enemy’s attention at this time is generally on the short stick on the upper plate, and the guard against the lower plate will be relaxed, I can deliberately shake the short stick in my hand at this time to further attract his attention, and then take advantage of his unpreparedness, use the front leg (left leg) closest to the enemy’s crotch abdomen to hit the key point of his crotch.
If the kick is hit, the enemy will be in unbearable pain and lean forward, exposing his left neck; If it is defensive, it will generally instinctively tummy down, because it is a left fighting style, it will block down with the nearest left hand, at this time the upper body will also lean forward, and its left neck will also be exposed; If it moves to the left and dodges, its left neck will be closer to the short stick.
Therefore, after hitting the key point of the crotch and abdomen with the left leg of the front leg, whether it hits it or not, we must swing the stick and slash the enemy’s left neck. The two actions of kicking the crotch and splitting the neck do not pause, but must be completed in one go.
Second, split the fist and sweep the ribs
We stand in a left-hand fighting style, holding a stick in our right hand; The enemy stands in a left-hand fighting style; confrontation between the two sides; Our side takes the initiative to attack, using a split fist to split the enemy’s head or face from top to bottom, the enemy will generally use his left arm to block upwards or both hands to block upward, at this time his left rib is exposed, at this time we use a short stick to sweep his left rib violently.
Third, the leg pokes the crotch
We stand in a left-hand fighting style, holding a stick in our right hand; The enemy stands in a left-hand fighting style; confrontation between the two sides; The enemy attacks our middle plate with his right leg, and we hold the enemy’s leg with his left arm, and the enemy’s crotch is completely exposed; Therefore, we quickly stepped up to the right and struck the enemy in the crotch with the short stick held in our right hand, knocking him down.
