Self Defense for Every Survivalist

by Erich

The following article was contributed by James Smith, an avid prepper with a passion for self-protection at all levels.


As humans, we are always vulnerable to danger, no place on earth is safe and no one can be immune from experiencing the unexpected.

People, who laugh at the idea of prepping or learning to survive in the face of danger, don’t realize that no one on earth has ever lived without experiencing anything terrible. Not that we want to experience something like that at all, but we want you to be mentally and physically prepared if things go wrong because dangers are somehow inevitable.

Given the growth in crime rate and the rise in catastrophic events due to various reasons, it is very important for people to learn how to defend themselves. In fact, everyone; men, women, young or old should be able to fight back if someone tries to attack you or anyone close to you. Rather than giving your attacker the benefit of the doubt that you are weak and can’t do anything you better learn a few basic self-defense techniques which can sometimes save you from any big loss.

Here’s a summary of highly effective self-defense tactics that don’t require much in terms of strength or skill:

Simple but Effective Means of Self-Defense

Get the eye

When attacked, the first thing people do is slap, kick or punch as a natural reflex. However, what you can easily and safely do is gouge the attacker’s eye. For this, you don’t have to keep your fit closed, like you do when punching someone. Instead, keep your fist open in a way that your fingers are sprouted out and can hit the eyes. Naturally, humans are rather sensitive with their eyes and when you scratch the attacker’s eyes, he/she will automatically move back or touch his/her hurt eye to ease the pain. This gives you enough time to either run for help or disarm your enemy. If you think your attacker is physically stronger than you then make sure you hit his thigh with an intensity that causes maximum pain and disables your attacker in the most effective way.

Quick tip: Don’t make your action too obvious to your attacker by just spreading your fingers out in the front as he might get an idea and grabs your hand before you even attack. So keep your hand movement as subtle as possible.

Ear Attack

Ears can be easily torn off they require only 10 lbs. of pressure to do so. Furthermore, a real hard slap around the ear can send off the attacker to a state of shock, immediately. Like we earlier said, a punch may leave you defenseless, because if the attacker grabs your closed fist there are chances he’ll leave you entirely powerless. Tearing off your opponent’s ear causes more pain than a punch. Also, the latter requires more force and pressure and might.

Chop, chop

Although basically being a martial arts and a karate trick but you can use this easy and majorly effective trick when you’re attacked or are in a dangerous situation. Keep your palm flat and strike with the edge of your hand—the beginning of your wrist and top of your pinkie finger. Target for the neck, near the throat or on nose and leave the opponent unconscious.

Break a finger

This again is simple and effective as fingers are the easiest bone to break. Smartly grab the palm of your assailant and bend his fingers to an extent they break. This may sound ruthless but when you’re in a situation where your or your family’s life is in danger this aggressiveness comes naturally. If your attacker is armed then it is better not using this technique. In a stressful time like this when you’re threatened by someone, you won’t be remembering difficult movie stunts or karate tricks but some simple and useful tricks can be of great help.


This one comes naturally and even children are aware of this reflex action if someone tries to grab them against their will. The harder you bite the more pain it will cause. It’s a simple yet brutal self-defense technique. The most sensitive areas like fingers, neck or ear can inflict extreme pain. If you are within close range of your attacker, this is the best technique to use and can give you time to run and even scare your attacker.

Tips to Keep in Mind

  1. Always carry some sort of weapon like a folding knife or extremely strong pepper spray.
  2. You should always carry a flashlight with you so that if your attacker takes you to a stranded place and you somehow manage to escape, you have something to use for help or see in the dark.
  3. If your attacker is armed, don’t try to intimidate him/her because this might provoke him to attack.
  4. If your attacker is unarmed then give an impression that you’re not afraid and have the power to call for help or even fight back.
  5. Teach your children how to respond in an emergency and give them code words to remember if they are ever in trouble. They, themselves should know a few tricks to attack someone. Yes, even children can be brave and powerful enough to strike back.
  6. If you’re unfortunately stabbed or wounded then you should know how to provide first aid or stop an open wound from bleeding.
  7. Sometimes your best bet is to do as you’re told rather than fighting back. Trust your gut if it tells you that the attacker is extremely powerful and can cause harm.
  8. Always keep some emergency numbers on quick dial and teach your children to dial 911 in emergency.
  9. Before trying out any of these tricks make sure you’re not going to make things worse for you. Try to figure out your attacker’s size and physical strength before you just go about hitting him with a kick.
  10. Although, it’s easier said than done but if you show your attacker that you’re stressed and panic he will take that as a sign of weakness and can attack you more easily.

Great advice, but I’ve got one move to add; A good strong punch to the throat will make an attacker change their mind about you immediately!

It’s genuinely very difficult in this full of activity life to listen news on TV, therefore I simply use world wide web for that reason, and take the most recent news.

When you order the bouquets online, you’ll have your list organized
and have the flowers delivered your preferred
location and time. In some cases, with well constructed websites, you are able to often add additional items like balloons, champagne, chocolates, stuffed animals or
possibly a quantity of add-on gifts. Some people will be sending
newborn baby gift baskets no matter what you signal; oahu is the love that
