My Reply - Why does it matter how tall he is to decide on which technique to use, short person knees break just like a tall person.

And they react the same way if hit on the chin or solar plexs. Tall people can move the leg just as a short person can.

Unless thats the only target available to you why concentrate on just the knee. What if he moved his leg or you missed what would be your next target or attack? Not caring if he's tall or short. He surprised and wide open lets say, one leg in the air.

I would only go for the knee genraly, and of course there are exceptions and depends on the circumstance, if the other person was big, tall.
The knee breaks a lot easier if there is a lot of weight on it, and if they have long legs.
If he was my height (average) I would probably do a take down? again it would depend on his stance, how far away he was, how unexpected my dropping the other guy was to him.
But a knee is a good disabler, if the other person is tall and heavy (usually the two go together). Again I might be talking crap, but that is what my instinct would be.

Tall=bring them to my level=break knee

Average=can manipulate centre of gravity=take down.

that was my line of thinking.

If you're changing a tire, you have a tire iron. If you have a tire iron, you can drop someone just as fast as you could with a bullet to the head.. Some initial surveying and talking would be a good idea, and if the situation deteriorated further, and became violent, you could destroy the person close by with a tire iron strike to the temple or similar area. I'd say after seeing this there's about 90% chance the second guy would want to leave. If not, lather, rinse, repeat. If you're changing a care tire, you have lots of weapons around you like the tire iron, the car jack, nuts and bolts, hubcap, etc.. If you're on guard there's no good reason your attacker should beat you unless he has a weapon such as a gun, or decides to start throwing his weapons at you.

Magr - I see your point, battle conditions and your plan of attack. I thought you were getting tunnel vision, knee break, I gotta break the knee.

Pradoxbox, Thats exactly what I see why use just your body if attacked by multiples. The scenario speaks for itself you are changing a tire, you stand and guy places his hands on you threatening. Tire Tool him baby and the other guy too. I'd probably stay away for head strikes with TT, you could kill them and may face MS charges. This is the only way we think different, you are way too vicious hitting them in the head with an Iron tool.

But we almost on the same brain wave, but you are a little too wolverine for me. Steaks good enough don't make hambuger out of them LOL.

I suppose hitting the temple would be pretty extreme. Then again, I was looking at it from the perspective that the situation become violent, rather than just someone placing their hand on your chest. I.E. The man starts trying to strike you. I'd react with whatever force necessary in such a situation- they aren't just curious passers by, they stopped with intent to rob you then attacked you, so you know they don't give a damn if you get hurt or not. No need to worry about being politically correct in such a case, IMO.

Personally never had a situation like this, just basing it on what I have seen of various police & citizen attack videos I have watched. Usually in a situation like this, the good guy gets a sudden and complete beat down, sometimes not surviving.
