Throughout this site you will be see different ways of attacking your
opponent´s vital areas with your body´s own natural weapons. People
tend to think of a weapon as some object or instrument which is picked up or
carried with you for possible use against an attacker. However, the body itself
makes some very effective weapons available at any time. Your own natural weapons
are almost unlimited in the ways that they can be used, and they cannot be over
rated. And, parts of your body are not illegal to carry;-) This is not to say
that they may not occasionally be improved upon, as we shall discuss later.
By using enough speed, it is usually not too difficult to hit the target,
but sometimes must create an opening by using misdirection. If your opponent
is in condition and is trained in fighting, attacking a vital area may not entirely
accomplish your purpose. Any single punch or series of punches may be inadequate
to stop a determined or drugged street fighter. In such cases follow up movements
and ground work may be necessary. The likes of armlocks or chokes, may be needed
to finish the fight.

There is practically no object that cannot be used as a weapon. Almost anything
in your reach right now can be put to work as a weapon, although in many cases
your natural weapons are better. But sometimes, since a weapon can reach further
or is harder or more damaging than a natural weapon in blocking or attacking,
it can sometimes be successfully put to use in a serious street fight. If you
pick up a weapon, you had better know how to use it and be willing to use it.
Weapons can also be used to deter fights. Laws regarding the use of weapons
in a fight are strict. Negative aspects of using a weapon include illegality
and the possibility that the weapon might prohibit you from using your natural
weapons, but if you are potentially going to be badly hurt by an attacker and
you feel sure that a weapon would be to your advantage, perhaps a weapon might
Here are some examples so that you can have an idea of common and easily available
objects that might be used as weapons, but the list goes on and on and you should
be ever conscious of the variety of objects that may make effective weapons.
