Techniques may be used for either defense or for offensive, or for both. For example, a hard, powerful forearm block against a punch may incapacitate the punching arm; thus, the block may also be considered an attack.

Use of techniques may include

  • Avoiding.
  • Using releases (from grabs, locks, chokes, strangles, or hold downs).
  • Appling come-a-longs (forcing a person to go where you wish).
  • Blocks using the head, shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knee, feet, or the body itself.
  • Attacks using the head, shoulders, elbows, hands, hips, knee, feet, or the body itself.
  • Biting.
  • Throwing.
  • Appling pressure to pressure points.
  • Appling chokes (to the windpipe) and strangles (to the cardioid arteries).
  • Appling hold-downs (pinning a person down in a way that they cannot harm you).
  • Appling joint locks ( to the neck, shoulders, elbows. wrists, fingers, hips, knees, ankles, toes).
  • Using flesh tearing with fingers (using clawing, eye gouges, etc.).
  • Using mutilation (ripping body parts, such as ears, nose, and genitals).
  • Using maiming (bone breaking).
  • Using single techniques.
  • Using multiple techniques.
  • Using edged weapons (knife, razor, etc.).
  • Using thrown weapons (objects, knives, etc.).
  • Using launch weapons (slingshot, bow and arrow, etc.).
  • Using bludgeoning weapons (bat, stick, etc.).
  • Using firearms (pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun, etc.).

Techniques may be used to

  • Escape.
  • Block or avoid an attack.
  • Obtain a release from an attack.
  • Gain compliance.
