why aren’t these being reblogged more often?i rather see these than “keys in hand”

Fatality

Umm so since I’m stupid could someone kindly explain each step for me like step 3 am i head butting him in the face or the chest? 

I think it depends on the height of the person, but I suppose the head is a more effective target. I hope this helps :)

Step 1: Step back the moment he reaches for you.
Step 2: Duck!
Step 3: Head butt him in the chin. It’s very important that it is the chin and not the chest because it is much more uncomfortable and disorienting to have your teeth bang together especially if it cuts his tongue (which it will if it is in the way). More than likely height won’t matter. He will be leaning forward from the missed attempt at grabbing you.
Step 4: Knee him in the balls.
Step 5: When he doubles over, jab him on his back. I believe at the base of the neck just above the shoulder blades would be best. I’m not an expert, but this seems like the best place, imo.
Step 6: Don’t lose contact. Bring your other hand over and slam your hands against the sides of his heads as hard as possible. Right on the ears is the best place; it is extremely disorienting if done correctly. Then take his head and bring it down on your knee as you bring your knee up. It’s very important that you avoid the nose because if you knee his nose it will definitely break and more than likely the bones will stab his brain killing him, so aim for his mouth instead.
Step 7: Keep your knee up and bring your foot out to kick him over. Personally, I don’t like the image because it looks like she kicked him with her toes. You do not want to do that. Instead kick him with the ball or heel of your foot and put power behind it with a push.
Step 8: He is on the ground. You could probably stop here and he would get the picture, but if you really want to…Your leg is still in the air from the kick. With all your force slam the edge of your your heel on his side. It will be more effective if you lower your body first by bending at the knee of the leg your weight is on. Done right, you can break a rib or two.

reblogging again for that^

Reblogging for the steps in the image and the explanation in the comments. I don’t so much like the explanation on the image proper, but I appreciate the thought behind it (here, have a self-defense thing, it could save you) and so I’m passing it on.

My sister posted this on her FB, and my parents said it was offensive. SO FUCK THAT, I’M REBLOGGING THIS.


I fully support this, besides the head butt.. chins are hard, and sharp blows to the top of the head and not the forehead can be seriously damaging, and very likely to knock people out! I’ve actually seen a dude get knocked out from a soccer ball hitting the top of his head.. I would suggest a good punch to the throat, gouging eyes, throwing an elbow, or of course all three in rapid succession. Stay safe y’all.

I can’t give you the Seven Wonders of the World. I can’t give you diamonds
or the Sphinx, I can’t give you gold
and I can’t give you the earth.
What I can give you is this rusted heart of mine,
I can give you the warmth of my hands.
Lips, to kiss every part of your body that you hate. Your skin and my lips will be married, believe me,
they will become the sea and the moon.
Everyday will be gravity. Magnets.

I can’t give you a crown, though you deserve it more than anyone.
I can’t promise you that we’ll always be fine. That we’ll never hurt.
Life will mark us. I can’t save you from that,
but I can endure it with you, I can hold you when it’s painful.
I can give you cotton sheets and tangled limbs
and remember-when’s when we are 67 and our skin has become crinkled paper,
I can give you the comfort of knowing that even the silence will be beautiful.
That when your fists are burning
and you can’t stand the world, I’ll love you.
All of your darkness and all of your light.
That even when you are screaming with rage, that you are still the universe to me,
that I need you to breathe.

I can’t give you everything.
I can’t give you wings.
But I can carry you when your legs are heavy,

and damnit, I can love you until you and I combust. Until we turn to stardust.
