    Cannon ball in with arms over head, then explode. grab the arm with the weapon in and do an armpit lock (like monkeys wont take their hands off of food in a hole, sort of style) and rotate to a position where if they move that are or try and punch, they will do themselves more harm.

    HOW DOES ONE DEAL WITH THE SPEED OF THE ATTACKER SWINGING THE BAT? AND WHAT IF I GO IN FOR THE "WINDOW" BUT THE ASSAILANT MOVES BACK QUICKLY, CREATING ENOUGH DISTANCE WHERE THE TIP OF THE BAT IS ABLE TO REACH ME?

    So…. where did the bat "suddenly" come from? Up the sleeve? Why wait at all, as soon as I see a blunt weapon I get out of dodge unless I'm at a baseball game. Thank you.

    I used something like this at school during the tennis unit one of my friends just kept bumping me with his racket all the time and one time I said he wouldn't be able to hit me if I didn't want him to and he was like yeah sure prove it and before he finished the sentence I had the racket in one hand and the other was pushing him away from me with my other hand. He was so surprised and said do it again when I am ready for you and I did the same thing and it still worked.

    I don't know about all this strange Beta male fetish thing where the guy want to be below the woman BS, but I generally find a woman who does fighting and fitness attractive to me, because those are things I like too! Example if you like guns & muscle cars like I do then you will likely find a hot chick who is into muscle cars & guns more attractive than say a liberal activist who carries a small dog in her pink handbag and only talks about celebrity gossip?

    Let's say why don't we grab another weapon or an object and beat the shit out your enemies the bullies at my school got a cutter knife or a bat let's say i used a table and won the fight all i'm trying to say almost every thing around you is a weapon our fist rocks trash pipes tables trash cans what ever but let's say what i think about this video is for teasing lower level jerkos with weapons but when it comes to real experienced guys who know melee weapons just use a table or a chair at them like i did lol maybe could help you maybe…

    problem is when you attack, you can shorten or lengthen the bar, hammer etc.before it hits, pretty easily in mid air… I think what you should be saying is how to avoid the full force of the hit. And if Amber was me I wouldn't let you get that close, or/and would make my distance and hit at the same time…. One would have to be faster then the swing to get in or avoid full force of hit… I don`t think there is many people who can move that fast, especially if the attacker has some common sense.

    Or the attacker does a fake swing to get you to come in and they step left then swing and put you in a deep sleep. If someone wants to really hurt you they will do it when you are not ready. I have found that the majority of bad ass street fighters were born that way. You can't teach a poodle to beat a pitbull.

    thank you ryan for all of your experience and teaching. ive learned a lot from watching your vids. cant really afford classes but this is def helpful in helping me keep my family safe

    Yeaah but that technique assumes you catch the attacker mid-swing. Not very realistic. It's either you catch him before he decides to swing or… well, you don't catch and you get cracked. Also, two handed baseball bat is rare- people carry small pipes or telescoping batons held in one hand. These are truly dangerous.
