Are you looking for some magic moves for self defense?
There is no magic moves or one thing that will work in every situation. You practice something and when you do sparring with your training partner and use that technique, it works. Well, it does not mean it will work in every situation against every attacker.
If you think something as an ultimate move, that might put you in a vulnerable position. Maybe because of strength, body size, and skills, the attacker can defend your strike that you thought very effective. Now what?
You cannot plan to fight, you can have a strategy to fight. There is a high probability that you will see something different.
When you are confused and cannot decide what to do, that is a vulnerable situation in a fight. Things can happen pretty fast. In case the attacker makes his move to attack you, you will find it difficult to defend that. It is not that you do not know how to do defend the attack, it is because you are not able to decide what to do at that moment.
You have to focus but do not see only one thing. Fighting with multiple attackers is not easy. Most of the time, you see someone is arguing, shouting and moving, the other guy attacks you from another side. So observe the whole situation. Then you see if someone moves and gets close to you.
Another vulnerable situation in a fight is when you are in the middle and the attackers are around you. If you move forward to attack someone, other attackers attack you from behind. In the situation the sooner you can get out of the central position, the better.
Do not overcommit to attack, it might do more harm than good. When you fight for self defense, it is better to control your emotions and do the things that can protect yourself.
