When it comes to using street fighting techniques in an actual fight, remember that there are no rules. Your opponent will probably not follow any regulations and may fight dirty if they have to. You have to rise to any challenge and do the same whenever your life and safety are concerned.

Most street fighting techniques are built around the concept of giving you enough time to incapacitate your opponent quickly and make the first exit possible. There should be no shame involved in escaping an attack, especially if there is no one around to help you. More injuries, rapes and deaths occur when people decide to fight longer than 15 seconds instead of calling for help.

Thus, learning what are called "stop hits" is very important, as these moves will stall the attacker just enough to give you a head start. However, if the aggressor gets you in a lock hold, then you must be able to jab, punch, kick and roll yourself out of it. If the situation gets so bad as to require full force, make sure you are aware of your surroundings and how your own adrenaline rush is affecting your body.

Street Fighting Techniques Against Two Attackers

If you come across more than one attacker, you should know how to immediately go into action and perform a "stop hit" on one of them as soon as you can. You will be able to defend yourself easier against the second opponent and possibly even scare him off with your ferocity. If you feel that you are outnumbered, rely on your instinctive strength and smarts to use every kicking, holding, punching, slapping and biting street fighting techniques you can to get them off your back.
