    How do you defend aginst a front shove

    How does your system defend against the dreaded "Double Handed Front Shove"? You know that drunk guy that thinks you spilled beer and is up in your face. Then, when he gets close enough both of his hands shove forward slamming your chest back.

    I am going to try and put together a youtube video together explaining this hopefully tommorrow. I am going to get a couple of students and film a bit of our self defense against the shove.

    what's your opinon?

    well, the way we defend against that double handed push is to take a step back with one foot (like stepping back into a Tip Toe or Cat Stance) to avoid the "PUSH" while the right hand comes up under one of his arms while the left one comes over the top of his other arm. One hand presses down and out while the other rises up and out. This causes the other guys arms open wide while his torso pushes forward. After that we can either knee him, or front snap kick, or whatever. it's up to you at that moment of time.

    I don't drink, therefore I don't go to bars, therefore I don't get shoved by drunk people. Probably not the answer you were looking for, but the easiest and most effective way to avoid a fight is to avoid a fight.

    the two handed shove is common in street fights even when youre attacker isnt a drunk

    usually both parties shove each other hoping one will back down from it turning into a full on altercation

    Out here in the SF bay area, we don't push back. one someone has decided to put his hands on you "IT's ON!" that's when the blows start flying.

    I would fall down. Stand back up, drop my pants and underwear. Start crying. Throw my arms open and ask for a hug.

    This tends to get people walking away from you and diffuses and adversarial situation.

    Basic principle is that if his hands are on you, there's nothing protecting his face, or anything else.

    You can fight the hands, or you can fight the 'man'. Since you're going to have to fight the man eventually, might as well get on with it promptly.

    Your opponent's pushing arms is like the "clinch" situation. He gives you some "free" contact points if you know how to take advantage on it.
