One of the best things about this Native American Combat technique is how simple and instinctual it is. In requires virtually no fine motor skill, yet it will have a devastating effect on your attacker.
That being said there are a few things you must understand to make this move effective. The first thing to understand is where this self defense move should be used.
This move is perfect for situations where you are in tight quarters or near walls, fences, dumpsters, or any other object which you can ram your attacker into. An empty parking lot is not an ideal place for this move, but fights most often occur in areas where this can be used.
Next you want to pay close attention to where you grab a hold of your attacker. To be able to throw the attacker you need to have him around the waist. This will also get your body low enough that it is out of the way of the haymaker punch.
If you grab to high on your attacker you will have to use brute force to throw him instead of using his own body as leverage. If you have your attacker by the waist his weight will be above and behind you, making the throw easy to perform.
Another benefit of this fighting move is that it closes the distance between you and your attacker. Most people rely on punches and kicks in a fight. By closing the distance you are disarming your attacker. Punching you will no longer be an effective strategy for him. Closing the distance gives you the upper hand in the fight.
The key to getting in close is recognizing the right time to make your move. Most fights start with one guy throwing a right hook or haymaker as you saw in the video. You must recognize your attacker’s intentions early on so you can adapt your self defense strategy and stay one step ahead.
Here are some common ways to know a punch or other attack is coming:
- Your attacker looks away suddenly
- Your attacker pokes or pushes you
- Your attacker stops looking at your eyes and starts staring at your chin or nose
- Your attacker suddenly stops talking or arguing
