My Top 5 Self Defense Jiu Jitsu Techniques to use against Punches or Grabs
Make sure and check out my latest video: Jiu-jitsu against knives and guns when your opponent is on the ground.
This video was inspired when some guy on YouTube commented on this video. He said the ground is the last place you want to be in a street fight. He then went on to say an attacker can pull out a gun or knife. I was dumbfounded when he said this, because he also claimed to have trained for many years in jiu-jitsu even though he also claimed he was a JKD instructor. He never provide any credentials.
My 5 favorite and proven jiu-jitsu techniques that anyone can use in a street situation for self defense and protection. I am Mark Hopkins, a 3rd degree black belt under Carlos Valente and a masters level competitor and multi-time medalist in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu competition.
Comments are always welcome, always question comments coming from those who do not provide you with valid credentials as a martial artist or self defense expert. Fakes or self-proclaimed experts without real names or real credentials love to validate themselves by making comments that are not proven.
Brazilian Jiu jitsu is the perfect martial art for self defense when you really don't want to hurt somebody or if you don't want to show visible damage. Of course, you can hurt somebody with jiu jitsu if you really wanted to, but these techniques usually will not show signs of visible damage, like a bloody lip or nose from a punch would. Many schools are against fighting of any kind, even if you or your child is fighting back to defend themselves against bullies and punks. Give yourself and your child the gift of Self Defense.

How to End a Fight in Seconds
If you're faced with a larger attacker, the importance of going pre-emptive is huge. If you want to take out a bigger attacker, you need to strike first in a fight. You want to put as many odds into your favor as possible.
It might be considered a cheap shot by some, but honestly would you rather wait and be gravely injured before defending yourself? It's best to just go pre-emptive and strike first. First though, you want to try and verbally diffuse the situation. If you've done everything you can and nothing seems to be working, then you strike back and defend yourself physically.
One of the most important strikes is the head butt. If you're talking to your attacker, or if he lowers his head to speak down at you, you head butt him as quickly and strongly as possible.
Another possible hit to commit is a double palm strike. One hand will come forward, another will come on top and then you can snap the neck by moving towards your opponent. You must drive that power that is in your palms forward and strike towards the attacker's neck, creating a lot of damage into the head area.
To continue, another strike which comes to use in this type of situation is a hammer fist. If your opponent is coming at you and you are talking to him trying to distract him, you can bring your hands up and then perform a hammer fist towards the facial area, particularly the nose.
One last possible self-defense move you can perform is an elbow strike at your opponent, right through the center line, which is a very devastating blow because it's non-telegraphic, coming straight through the middle.
These are some of the basics and best ways to strike back against your attacker and end a fight as quickly as possible.

How to Defend against a Larger Attacker
This is the biggest fear most people have, facing a larger attacker. Size will always be important...It plays a huge role in a fight. There's a lot of energy coming from a larger attacker so you need to be prepared and know how to defend yourself effectively.
If ever you are faced with a larger attacker, a great way to survive is to strike first! If you don't get the opportunity to do so, you will be at a disadvantage. You can't afford to wait for your opponent to make a move and then wait for a chance to strike back at him, because just with the energy and force behind his attacks, you'll be lucky if you'll be able to defend yourself against him.
With that said, if you're faced with a larger attacker, you must start and finish the fight, by striking quickly. In a lot of cases, larger attackers have a tendency of lowering their heads towards you and talking down at you. This gives you the perfect opportunity to head butt your opponent.
Whatever you do, you should never try to wrestle with an attacker who is bigger than you because you will waste so much energy and most likely won't accomplish anything due to your opponent being much larger than you, hence having more strength than you.
You can't wrestle, you need to strike first whether it's with your head, your palms, your elbows, etc. They need to be big blows, and most importantly they should be performed as quickly as possible.
One last thing to keep in mind, as long as your attacker is standing up high, this places you in a vulnerable position. You need to bring him down to your level to finish him off and strike him first. As long as he is up, it's more difficult to perform a solid strike. Bringing him down can lead to you having more of an advantage.
