    Hi AD readers, I thought I would put up a couple of the free pictures of self defense charts. Please use the charts only for self defense purposes in a serious and responsible manner. I hope these charts save Deaf people's lives someday. There is a mixture of American and Russian self defense charts as well as some good reading materials.

    Here are the charts.....For Self Defense Only and to be used appropriately.

    I should be adding some video clips of the physical demonstrations of self defense in the next few days. No closed captioning UNLESS you know how to turn the CC on Windows Media Video ( WMV ) Please explain how??? Thank you ....

    The video clips has alots of visual and easy, clear to understand physical demonstrations of self defensive measures.

    As Always try to avoid fighting in the first place and avoid bad places and situations if you can.

    Please have a Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless and stay safe, Heath

    Hi AD Readers, I hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving and God Bless...

    Here are some excellent self defense video clips I have found on the internet that may save Deaf people's lives someday. I pray you are never in a situation like this and that now you have the resources to deal with a self defense situation. Please keep in mind they are not closed captioned. I did make sure it was very highly visual and easy to understand without captions. I searched long and hard for ones that make alots of sense and would help you in a self defense situation.

    The first video clip is basically a silent and very relaxing one then will get into more video clips as it progresses....Enjoy this one relaxing video clip ....

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=4369833376437554224&q=self+defense

    In this 2nd video clip ... this video is very nice for its showing a very visual understanding of what is happening. The only thing is that in a real life situation. There will be no fancy high kicking and it would be more like mid-level or low kicking because you want self defense to work to your advantage in a very serious self defense situation.

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=7922722110772344306&q=tae+kwon+do

    This 3rd video clip is of the US Army Combatives course. Please do not try these moves.... Please seek professional instruction from a certified martial arts instructor ( teacher ) This will give you an idea of how the US Army trains for war. No one wants war and peace is always the best. God Bless the US Troops...

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-5033767784827785557&q=hand+to+hand+combat

    This 4th clip will show you something from a self defense school.... you will learn alots from this one and how much training and effort they put into becoming stronger and healthier, if you have the money by all means go for it and if you do not have money ... you can always read books and check for DVD's on the internet usually about $20. I have yet to see one that is closed captioned though. This video clip is basically an overview of what training is like.... it should be fun and enjoyable. This is a good example of a good school. Clean , professional and respect at all times. Safety is taken very seriously.

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-3745824026145431013&q=combat

    This one is worth putting here because there are some very good self defense movements shown and in the opening of the video clip ... there is that high kick which most people in real life would not use in a real life and death fight ... if someone tries to kick high towards you. The best thing you can do is to take a couple steps back then grab his feet and trip him on his another leg , always being careful to watch what his hands are doing....5th video clip

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=5583616370404212643&q=martial+arts&pr=goog-sl

    This video clip is really good once you get past the first few seconds of the video clip because it shows the level of highly physically fit people... Enjoy the 6th video clip....God Bless...


    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=-2453038677839094535&q=karate&pr=goog-sl

    This 7th video clip will give you an idea of how the US Marines train for their green belt in the Marine Corps Martial arts program ..... (MCMAP )

    http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=3510738508968565338&q=MCMAP&pr=goog-sl

    Here is one last one ....about how the US Marines passes or fails their students on the MCMAP tests to be ready for war. It is a 48 page computer print out to mark what ones you passed or need more work on. It is available to the general public. You will need Abode pdf format if you do not have one then the next link will show you where to download for free the Abode pdf format.

    If you are able to afford classes in martial arts then you will get a certificate after training and it will look something like this ....also please make sure to study in military hand to hand combat and learn law enforcement techniques, Why law enforcement techniques you may ask ? Many of the law enforcement techniques are excellent for the civilians and military hand to hand combat for the civilian is usually reserved to a true and serious life and death situation. A good example of law enforcement use of technique would be....


    ( for example you have a drunk family member or your cousin coming home from the bar all upset over something and you can not use lethal force.)

    You will need to know how to restrain him to the ground and not kill him with your body weight on his chest ( lungs are there ) or your arm on his neck and the arm pressure cutting off his breathing. There is a right and wrong way to every technique, of course in a real life situation ... the techniques may not be always perfect, the idea is to move with a swift technique as close to a real life situation.

    This is an example:

    Here is what the training certificate will look like....Notice what it says on the certificate at the top of the certificate....

    Here are some of the training devices you will see in a martial arts class. The weapons look real but they are not and they are made entirely of rubber which is alots safer. Plastic may seem good but I would say go with a rubber training knife then have a plastic gun for training this way you have a lower chance of getting hurt if you can not afford the classes and train on your own. Never train with the real thing if you own a handgun or a knife please for your safety !!!!! Even Martial Arts Instructors do not train their students with the real weapons. Please use common-sense and train responsibly and safely.....

    As you can see there are many good schools out there and please do not limit yourself to one school ...you can learn alittle bit of everything because when using ASL everyday you will see many different applications of martial arts through American Sign Language....that is the cool part about it. I would love to go to all the schools and learn everything and get tons of certifactes I do not have the money to do it so I enjoy martial arts as a hobby

    Training Warnings

    Always consult a physician before engaging in a program of rigorous exercise.

    Consult a physician immediately if any persistent pain or swelling occurs during or after periods of training.

    Always train under the guidance of an experienced instructor to insure effective and safe training procedures and techniques. Children especially should be closely supervised while training.

    Always warm-up adequately before each workout and begin each training session slowly, gradually increasing the speed and power of your techniques.

    Be careful not to over train. Over training may result in an injury due to fatigue or lax concentration.

    If an injury should occur, allow adequate time for it to heal before resuming training.

    This article will help clear up many misunderstandings and concepts about getting help. I used to think people would help me because I am Deaf .... now I am older and an adult. I found out that is not always the case. Here is the article. Prayer never hurts either.

    Rely on Yourself

    When you are in trouble or in danger, the only person you can count on to help you is yourself. There may be others around to help you, either because they care about you, they have a legal duty to help you, or there is a moral duty to help you. However, they may be unable to help, be too late to help, or choose not to help you. The only person who is always available to help is—you.

    If available and able, family or friends may help you. If available and able, public or private safety personnel have a legal duty to help you. We all have a moral duty to help others if we are able. All this being true, you cannot count on their help. Many people are either too scared to help you or for legal, safety, or personal reasons, they do not want to get involved.

    Many people are even afraid to report to authorities that you are in danger. People know that if they get involved, their act of goodwill may result in having to testify for you, lawsuits from you or you attacker, lawyer fees, threats to themselves or family, or even placement in a witness protection program. Most people react instinctively to help others, but others hesitate, and then choose not to help.

    So do not rely on others to help you. Only rely on yourself. If help comes, fine. If it does not come, you will take care of things yourself. To be able to help yourself, you must be prepared. When something bad happens or you are attacked, it is too late to prepare. Preparation not only prepares you for action, it gives you the confidence that you can take action to help yourself when the need arises.

    Ask for help when needed, take help when offered, but only rely on yourself.

    Good Life saving advice... especially in the post-9/11 environment for Deaf people. I hope this article saves Deaf people's lives God Bless... read on...

    Licking Your Wounds

    If you watch animals fight, they fight to their utmost because they know that a loss means—death. No matter their injuries, no matter their pain, they do not surrender. After the fight, the winner will probably be seriously injured. As the effects of the adrenaline rush fade away, the pain of the injuries will intensify, but the winner cannot relax. He or she must retreat to safety, lick the wounds, and get back to business of survival. After you have fought a tough street self-defense battle, you also must retreat to safely and lick your wounds so you may get back to the business of life.

    First aid training is not just for the times you must treat others, sometimes it is for treating yourself. All fire fighting personnel, police officers, and military personnel get first aid training, not just to treat others, but so they may treat themselves when needed so they may get back into the battle and do their job. All of you should be qualified in first aid.

    By first aid, I do not just mean just basic first aid, such as CPR, stopping bleeding, splinting breaks, treating minor cuts, etc., I also mean battle field first aid, the type of would you would need in combat. Nowadays, a self-defense situation may not only involve the fists, pipes, chains, and knives of the past, but the firearms and even tragically enough acts of terrorisms involving the use of explosives. Nowadays, first aid may have to include gunshot wounds, sucking chest wounds, exposed guts, missing limbs, etc. You may not only have to deal with these types of wounds on others, but also on yourself. If you are to survive a self-defense attack, even one you win, you not only must ignore your injuries during the battle, you also must be able to lick your wounds afterward and get on with your life.

    In a empty-hand street battle, even if you are the winner, you will get hit hard and often before the battle is over. If a knife is involved, you will get cut. If a gun is involved, someone will probably get shot. During the combat, you will probably not realize you are injured, but after the battle, after the effects of the adrenaline rush fade away, the pain will come.

    Most martial arts schools train for "Pil Sung" (certain victory), but they do not train for the aftereffects of victory. In a tournament, the aftereffects of victory are rejoicing and receiving praise. In a street battle, victory means getting to safety to check yourself for wounds, treating the wounds quickly, and then either getting away safely or preparing to take on the next attacker. During sparring, if you are hurt, you raise your hand, the fighting stops, and you are protected and treated by others. In a street battle, if you are hurt and show it, the attacker will pounce on the hurt area with a vengeance. Also, there is no one else to protect you and treat your injury. You must fight the through pain no matter the severity of the injury, if not you may never be in pain again.

    After a street battle that involves knives or shots being fired, even if you are the winner, immediately check yourself for wounds. A clean, though deep, cut may not have much pain, but you may bleed to death quickly. A .22 caliber bullet hole is small and may not even be noticed or felt for a few minutes, but if it pierces a vital organ, you may go into shock and die quickly. Rub and press your hands over every part of your body from head to toe. Blood on a hand or a sharp pain from a press may indicate a serious injury. If shot, also check for an exit wound.

    Prepare yourself for what you must do after losing a street battle, but also prepare yourself for the possible results of a victory. First aid courses are available from your local Red Cross or community college. Many businesses make courses available to their employees. If unable to take a course, many web sites have first aid information.

    About Hand Attacks

    Hand techniques uses the muscles of the arms and torso to transfer the power generated by the legs and hips to the target. The thrusting motion of arm techniques and is essentially the same as the thrusting motion of leg techniques. Students must concentrate on the following points in hand techniques: the path of the hand, speed, and concentration of power through the proper use of the summation of forces.

    Four major categories of hand attacks

    Punches

    Hand attacks using a closed fist in mostly linear attack. Some punch arc (such as hook punch) or travel upward (such as uppercut). Fist may be held horizontally or vertically. Contact area is usually first two knuckles. Power comes from hip snap and driving off ball of trailing foot, also use the knee-snap sine wave to generate power. Punches may be "snapped" out and back very quickly or "pushed through" where upon contact, the fist pushes into the target.

    Strikes

    Hand attacks using some variation of a closed (such as back fist), semi-open (such as bear paw), or open (such as knife hand) hand in a circular attack. Impact area depends on the type of technique. Power comes from twisting of torso and footwork that permits body spinning. The arcing of the strike and the rotational speed of the body greatly increase power. Arc may travel along a vertical or horizontal axis. Strikes may be "snapped" or "pushed through" or a combination of the two.

    Thrusts

    Hand attacks when some part of the hand (such as two-fingers, palm, or middle knuckles) is jabbed into the opponent in a linear motion, usually to specific targets (such as eyes or solar plexus). Power comes from hip snap and driving off ball of trailing foot. There are three types of delivery:

    A snapping whip-crack motion.

    Pushing off an incoming attack with a thrusting motion.

    Combining the whip-crack and push-through. This is used when breaking boards to leave the first board intact while breaking the others.

    Elbows

    Although not a part of the hand, elbow attacks are categorized as hand techniques. Most elbow attacks are circular. Arc of attack may be vertical or horizontal. Impact areas are front, back, tip, and sides of elbow. Power comes from hip snap and driving off ball of trailing foot.

    Hand Strength

    To use the hand as a weapon requires it top be strong in all actions. Not only must the action of gripping be strong the motion of opening the fingers from the grip must also be strong, as in releasing the hand from a grip.

    Most people strength train their arms, legs, and abdomen but neglect their hands. Mas Oyama, one of the most powerful martial arts of this time (he fought and killed bulls barehanded), describes hand and finger exercises in his book Essential Karate. One exercise consists of placing the palms and fingers of both hands together in a prayer-like position with the fingers pointed upward in front of the chest. The hands and fingers are then pushed together in an isometric manner. While maintaining the pressure, the hand are raised above the head and then lowered to the level of the solar plexus. The same up and down motion is used with the finger are pointed away from the body and then with the fingers pointed downward. These motion strengthen the wrists, arms, and chest, while also building flexibility in the wrists.

    To strengthen the fingers and wrist, perform pushups on palms with fingers pointed inward, forward, outward, and backward; on fists with knuckles facing inward, forward, outward, and backward; on five, four, three, and two fingers and finally on the thumbs. Another traditional exercise is to stand in a sitting stance with the arms extending to the front and repeatedly close, squeeze, and extend the fingers rapidly for a few minutes.

    Dan Hodge, Olympic champion and Oklahoma wrestling coach, noted for his incredible grip, strengthen his powerful grip by repeatedly crumbling a sheets of newspaper into a ball with one hand. At his peak, he could crush a whole apple in one hand. As another exercise, try to fold a sheet of newspaper (or any size paper) in half more than seven times.

    Proper Path

    The correct path is determined by the position and angle of the target surface in relation to the attacker. To be effective, the hand attack must strike the target surface at a 90 degree angle, going straight into the target, so that maximum force can be concentrated into the target.

    Speed

    To increase the speed of a punch:

    Contract the muscles‑being used more quickly

    Relax the muscles not being used

    Don't put power into the arm until the moment of contact

    Retract the non‑punching hand as quickly as possible

    Power Concentration

    Power can be concentrated properly only when the hips, chest, shoulders, arms, wrists, and fists are firmly linked, and all the necessary muscles are used properly. By proper use of the summation of forces the power flows smoothly from the legs and hips out through the fist at the point of contact. For this to happen it is necessary to release all unnecessary tension from the arm and the hand at the start. This allows the power to flow freely up through the body to be released in a concentrated blast at the moment of impact.

    Clinched Fists

    When tensing the body to resist the reaction force in a punch, body muscles are tensed to lock the body in position so that the target absorbs the impact rather than the person punching. We all know the fist should be clinched at impact, but when you it initially be clinched? Beginners should probably clench the fist all the time. Intermediate students should begin to try to clench the fist only at impact. High ranking students should have the timing and distancing necessary to easily choose the proper moment to clench the fist, so that safety is not a concern and they may benefit from the total relaxation provided by a loose hand. During sparring drills, many high ranks like to keep their fists loose even on impact, so they may strike actually touching the opponent without injuring them. After long years of training, the expert may easily choose when to clench the fist or to keep it relaxed.

    Fist Rotation

    Fist rotation while punching and blocking is one of the very first things taught to a beginner. Rotation of the fist causes the forearm to twist, which changes in the orientation of the muscles of the forearm such that some of these muscles naturally tense. The tensing of the muscles help make the technique stronger. Training with a rotating fist helps coordinate the tension to occur only at the final instant of the technique (timing). The twist of the fist encourages a greater movement (power). When in a self-defense situation, twisting during impact may cause tearing injuries to the attacker. Mohamed Ali's twisting punches ripped many opponents' faces. See Punching topic for more information.



    Contact Area

    The contact area for a punch is the base knuckles of the first tow fingers. This concentrates all the force of the punch into a very small area and keeps the impact point in alignment with the forearm to lessen the chance for wrist injury. When punching a a high target, some students, especially beginners, have a difficult time keeping the first two knuckles in proper alignment.

    This is a common problem when using the twist punch at targets above the solar plexus and particularly the head. To help correct the problem, roll the punching shoulder upward and inward. This realigns the first two knuckles. Another way to avoid the problem is to use a different technique to attack the head, such as:

    Use a palm heel strike or knife hand strike.

    Use a straight vertical punch, where the fist is not twisted but is held vertically with the thumb side up.

    Use a modified punch where the forearm is held vertically in the guard position and the elbow is rotated upward before the punch begins. This lets the punch travel over the opponent’s guard and then slightly downward into the target. Since the punch is angled downward the first two knuckles strike first.

    General Tips

    Keep the upper body perpendicular to the ground. Do not lean.

    Form the attacking hand correctly and firmly.

    Be sure the hand travels to the target along the most direct route.

    When withdrawing the hand to the side, pull it back as if to hit the hip. Withdraw the hand at maximum speed.

    Keep the shoulders relaxed and in a natural position. There is a tendency for the shoulders to rise or for one shoulder to move ahead of the other.

    Tense the abdominal muscles at impact.

    Breathing should be coordinated with the attacking motion to develop effective focus.

    The stance from which the technique is delivered must be strong and stable.

    Power comes from the use of the hips and the pivot leg, not just the arms and shoulders.

    To extend the range of a hand attack, either move the entire stance toward the target, or widen the distance between the feet and lower the hips. Don't lean forward with the upper body, or reach with the shoulder.

    Only strike the head with open hand strikes. Save punches for the soft parts of the torso and neck. The exception to this rule is when you use a hammer fist. You can close your fist and still hit to the hard parts with the bottom of your fist without damaging your hands.

    Inverted Technique

    An inverted technique is one that is turned upside down. For example, an inward striking knife hand strike has the palm up. If the hand is turned over palm down, it may become an outward striking inverted knife hand strike.

    Spinning Technique

    A spinning technique is one that is applied after spinning the body 360° toward the side executing the technique.

    To Punch or Not to Punch

    When knuckles meet skull during a confrontation, the skull will always win. So, maybe the fist is not the best hand striking tool. The palm heel strike may be the better choice.

    To execute a palm heel strike, the hand is pulled back as far as possible, locking the wrist, and the fingers curl slightly forward. The palm and finger tips should face the target. Contact is made with the very bottom of the palm just in front of the wrist. The palm heel strike is quite effective. If used on a slightly upward angle, it has a tremendous amount of leverage.

    A punch to the head will usually only affect the area where the knuckles make contact. Palm heel strikes have a secondary effect. A palm strike to the head probably will not cause much damage to the contact point, but it will have an effect on the neck and usually will jolt the body. A palm heel strike the underside of the will often produce a knock-out due to the whip lash effect. A palm heel strike anywhere to the head area will almost always affect balance, because the it will take the assailant's ears out of line with the hips, which will expose other parts of the body to combinations or a takedown. The palm heel strike may be used effectively to the hard parts of the body. Punches are best used against the softer muscular parts of the body to avoid injury to the puncher. Palm heel strikes do not appear as violent as clenching your fist and striking someone. To a witness, an open hand strike may appear as a push.

    The most common injury in punching occurs when the fist strikes with the last two knuckles. The 5th metacarpal (between the knuckles of the middle finger and pinkie) usually breaks, commonly referred to as a boxer's fracture, which is why boxers always tape their fists prior to training or fighting. A fracture will take 6-8 weeks to heal, while a sprain (tear in ligament) could take up to 6 months to heal, and then rehabilitation could take another 3-4 months.

    Grip strength comes from the ulnar side (pinky side) of the hand. A boxer's fracture would significantly affect your grip. Try to hold anything with a handle without using your fourth finger. This means you will not be able to defend yourself by grabbing or gripping a weapon.
