The Secret of Winning Against a Bigger Attacker!

By       (Page 1 of 3 pages)   2 comments

In my previous article I covered why fighting back is the biggest mistake you can make when defending yourself.

Fighting is confused with self defense.

Defending yourself is not the same as fighting back!

The prevailing attitude is that you need to fight to protect yourself despite the fact that the playing field is not level. Your attacker is likely to be bigger, stronger or more aggressive. The reality is that fighting back against a bigger or stronger attacker has little to no chance of success.

Yang (white) represents the masculine characteristics of strength and aggression.

Yin (black) depicts feminine qualities of softness and passivity.

Fighting against a bigger attacker positions you as the little black dot in a sea of white. The odds of you winning here are not good.

In 'the Art of War', one of the principles is not to let your enemy choose the battlefield. If you follow this advice and shift the battlefield to the Yin's arena, magic happens. The sea of white is now a little white dot in a sea of black.

The table has turned. Winning is a foregone conclusion if you have the right tools.

The Key To Winning Against A Stronger Attacker

Clearly the key is to shift the battlefield from one where you don't stand a chance to the one where your attacker's superiorities are negated.
