The simplest and most effective moves:
One of the best moves that will make any attacker of any size whimper and drop on their knees is to take ahold of their little and ring finger with one hand and middle and index finger with your other hand and bend the wrist forward.
In case you can’t grab your opponent’s hand, him the attacker with a fist or with your fingers between the collarbones or his Adam’s apple. This will allow you precious time while your opponent is puzzled and taking his time to come to his senses.
The most noticeable area of an attack should be the groin. All self-defense courses and technique advise to target this area. Hitting the groin will literally incapacitate your attacker and you will have enough time to escape.
If you are grabbed from the front and cannot lift your hands, do the following. Try to move your hands forward and make a fist in front of your pelvis.
This will create enough room between you and the attacker. After that, hit the attacker in the nose with your forehead, as it will make the attacker step away from you.
At this point, hit him in the groin with your knee.If there is still space between you and the attacker, there is a way you can defend yourself with your palm.

Now the attacker will lose his balance and you will be capable of dropping down even the biggest opponent.If you are approached and grabbed by the side, an elbow is one of the most hazardous hits in all kinds of martial arts.
It is one of the hits you need you pretty much have to do if you are attacked from the side.Hit the attacker in the jaw, nose or temple with a curved move.
After that, the attacker will have to take a few steps back. Hit him in the belly or the chest if he steps back. Elbow hits are so heavy-duty that they will be disorient any attacker.
If you are pushed against a will, as most attacker will try to corner their victims or pin them against a wall. In this circumstance, it is essential to remember the weakest places and hit one of them.
– If the attacker’s arms are up, straighten you palm and hit them in the armpit.
