Common object defence
Last week we talked about using the hammer strike. Now let's make it more effective, and think about common object defence. Pick up a pen and think about how much more effective that hammer strike will be. Remember, you can't carry a weapon in the UK and if you intend to carry anything that you intend to use as a weapon, it will make it a criminal offence. However, there are pens lying about everywhere and you can carry one wherever you go. Think about the pen being a force equalizer and it can make someone smaller safer against a larger meaner opponent. Get a cardboard box and practice your striking on that. Realise the damage that can be done, and then keep that in mind and the force ladder in a self defence situation.
