How to Heighten Your Senses in a Street Fight

A different element of self-defense

There are many different tactics when it comes to enriching your senses during a street fight. In our video on Heighten Your Senses in a Street Altercation, we focus on the sense of sight.

We believe that when it comes to fighting techniques, the sense of sight is an important sense that you should focus on.

By being able to heighten your sense of sight, you’ll not only be able to have a better read on your opponent’s body language, but you’ll also be able to better manage your focus on your attacker.

Words are important but, body language is also very important

Contrary to popular belief, focusing only on what your attacker is saying is not something that you should be relying on. Yes, the words your attacker is using are to be considered, but they should not distract you.

Therefore, finding a technique to ignore your attackers word to focus on their body language is of the upmost importance in any street fight.

There’s a lot that can be revealed through your opponent’s body language. For starters, it can give you clues and signs on when to strike.

See an example on how to heighten your senses in a street fight:

As you can see in the video, by blocking your ears, you can now better focus on things you were unable to before.

Important factors such as their foot position, the movements and stance of your attacker as well as opportunities to strike first become more obvious now that you are no longer distracted by the noise around you.
