It's a pretty well-known fact that most fights get taken to the ground.
And one of the scariest things in the world can be when a very large person - 200 pounds or more - pins you to the ground with all their weight, slowly suffocating you to death. Cutting off your air, your oxygen and your will to win.
Luckily, there are a couple fool-proof things you can do in a case like this guaranteed to get someone off you fast - regardless of your size, strength or skill level.
The first thing you can do is simply bite the guy. Preferably on the neck. I know the thought of doing this isn't pleasant. But if your life is on the line, you just have to do it.
Another thing you can do, if you can move your hands, is rake your attacker's eyelids with your thumbs. In other words, just take your thumbs and press them right into his eye lids. . . and rake away.
Now, neither of these “moves" is complicated and yet, they both work like gangbusters.
Because, when you bite someone on the neck or try to rake their eyelids 99% of the time the person will try to put as much distance as possible between the two of you.
This is mostly instinctual and practically automatic. Even for the strongest and toughest people in the world.
Reason why is because the neck and eyes are among the most vulnerable parts of the body.
That's why wild animals will many times go for the neck or face. And why we naturally defend those two areas when attacked.
It's a built in mechanism for our survival. And the best martial arts and self defense experts in the world know how to exploit these instincts. . . and use them against their attackers.
