Suggestions.

Post  RomiX on Thu Jan 20, 2011 1:04 pm

I SUGGEST here to give ideas about site edition and so on. I'm a very unexperienced graphic editor, and I have absolutely no idea how to edit site appearence and/or interface. So, if someone's got more information about that, please, post here.

I was waiting to see if anyone else had input, but I guess it's been long enough. I can definitely sympathize with your suggestion; I myself have little know-how in site management, letalone design. So anyone with those skills would be more than welcome to offer some assistance.

Well, I think I have some more suggestions. Well, not preciselly suggestions but questions.

1rst: You built this site with a free site builder Forumotion, right?
2nd: those PRs are needed to feed the site, right?
3rd: If we find someone who appears to be in trouble, may we send him/her a link to the site?

Few avvies.

Post  RomiX on Sat Jan 22, 2011 1:45 pm

Well, I've seen some peoples that actually are very active, but they don't have an avvie. an avvie can tell a lot about a person, actually, for me, it's easier to talk to a person with an avvie, that without one. I suggest to make an avvie gallery, private of InterHaven.

I agree with Romix. about the avvies and the design stuff. i was actualy gonna do a course this year on computer programing and graphic designs. but the school does not offer anything in the way of I.T. studies. so iv had to teach myself... (not going too well) Sad

Personal Defense and Combat

Post  RomiX on Tue Jun 28, 2011 11:17 am

Mmmm.... Just for fun I checked my library for "Personal defese" tutorials and books.
Found none, except "Karate manual"
I guess there is 1/1000 who will be pacient and deduced enough to learn by those. Those are marcial ARTS, you need to have a talent for those.
Well, what I propose, is to make in "Advice" a part for "Personal Defense and Combate", to be applied in "Stone jungle" of towns and cities.
Just to defend yourself from attack and bullies. There's a problem, to hang things like those in this website.... I will have to translate and write a lot, and to that not be in vain, I'm asking your opinion: Should there be such a topic in the forums or not?

Hmm, a topic on self-defense? Good idea. Just be sure it covers more defense than offense. Even in play, it can be too easy to transition from dodging blows to giving them. And I should know.

The best defense is offensive, XD.
Hm, Why don't we start with general Physical preparation topic, while I'm on that one?

haha im not a confident person. But i dont get into fights any more. the self defence thing, i'v done 5 years of self defence training. and now i refuse to fight. i will not fight any one who starts on me. the only time i ever hit some one is to end the fight. and that usualy only takes one direct blow either to the throat making them un able to breathe. or a direct hit in the lower part of their jaw. hit the right spot and their unconciouse. or you got basic blocking moves which is pretty good to get away from a bad situation.

Yeah. When I took self-defense, the first move we learned involved getting someone's hands off your throat and turning your back to them, obviously in order to run.

haha yeah thats obviously what its for. get away before the trouble starts. but if the trouble has started and you have no choice the best way to imobalise your aponent is to try and one hit him. direct strike to the throat. or a hard enough hit in the jaw and he's out. or if your fast enough and good enough grab their arm and twist it behind their backs. trip them to the ground and hold them down until the police come

I re-read that book from which I was gonna get those advices and such:
-"If you strike from behind, hit your opposer's ears, the sound will pierce his membrana and cause lethal bloodspill to brain"
or
"There is a big nerv center, and it is close to skin level, hit it really hard, to make sure you killed your opponent in the moment"
^^. I guess I'll have to search something more gentle, but those things aren't much use.

Haha yes those also work. instead of hitting from behind you can also hit from the front and pretty much cup your hands and slap the sides of you opponents head strinking both ears and you will pop their ear drums. hurts like heck and works like a charm.

Actually, the best first line of defense is to shout "Back Away!" It draws attention and often throws the opponent off guard. Go for a deep voice.

I've also designed something called "Cactus Armor." Can be worn under most outfits and will cause instant regret for anyone who tries to grab you. 'Nuff said.

Actually, when ya pucnch, try to yell a lot, to ventilate your lungs and demorolise your opponent.
Check how you stand. Ya ' should be stable. Like, feet on shoulder length, a bit flexed, one hand (My case - left) Covers the throat , and in case of a punch to the chest, goes down and blocks the incoming hit. Another one protects the right side of your face.

Now, the defense can win time, but not a combat. Those who only defend themselves but not attack, almost never win.

How and where to hit? Hmmm.... Ask a marcial arts trainer, or Elithe soldier.

False ribs. Very soft part of the body, a hit there causes quite a pain. I'd hit with feet, but making sure that the opponent can't grab me.
Belly. You should strike hard, cuz It's got also muscles and fat reserve. Don't hit where the buttom is, but a bit above. Hit with the fingers doubled on the second Joint. Your enemy may double, hit the temple or the throat from aside or below. Just make sure he ain't getting up.
"Sunny point" Ya know where sternum ends? There's kinda pinnacle. Hit there with a finger joint, or well prepared punch. The only place where to hit as the fight starts. If the hit was good, it finishes inmediatly. There is a nervous center very close to upper dermus, a strike there if not knock outs your opponent, will leave him very-very unbattleble.

Life experience:If the opponent comes at you, like a normal bullying bustard, to produce fear and confirm his status, and you got pplenty space between you two, hit him with foot. Once I asked my taekwondo trainer how to defend myself from a knife-armed somebody who was coming from infront, knife above his head. He showed me. I layed 5 minutes on the floor without movement, and 10 more I could barely move. If you got struck there, well, it hurts, if you can, sit down; squat and try breathing normally.
The groin. Everybody knows the importance of that point. If the guy's coming too fast and from too away on you, use the leg. To protect yourself, one foot a bit behind other.Be ready to jump away.
In close combat (Quite close) don't be stupid use your elbows. Try to strike at the head , throat, points indicated before, and those tiny hollows near the neck.
Your target should not be throwing your opponent down only, but winning the combat. If the guy grabs your shoulders, and you got only plain floor behind, Use that: ride back, pulling him with you, just make a rotation, nothing more. To make sure he won't fall on you; put a knee between his chest and yourself. If ya do it fast, he'll fly away, very usefull and demoralising hint I found in a book.

Be continued

Continued it is:
Nose: a good strike in nose may cause great pains, and if you break it, even death, for nose um... "bone" will stuck brain
Hit a bit from below, heading for the bridge. Completely demoralising.
Below the nose, and almost on the upper lip is a great nerv concentration, a goot hit with a joint will leave sbd KO.
Funny thing, applying a massage there, you can briing back to life somebody whos'e KO already.

Don't go after the throat (aslo good point to hit) in the first moment. If you see that it is very well protected, don't bother yourself, search something else.

Those could be used with class bullies, and bastards, I doubt ifusing those you can bring down a soldier, a cop or a professional fighter. Choose your opponent!!!!!!!!!!!

I think my time with the church choir helped. Maybe you should try it.

As for the cactus armor, I'm thinking it would be marketed mostly to girls in dangerous areas. As an added bonus, it would be best worn over loose-fitting clothes that cover plenty of skin, further reducing their chances of drawing the, uh, wrong kind of attention.

IDK, I'm not a girl, I can't even rp as one. Just calling less attention, and not risking, it could be quite enough to reduce any assaults to 0.
In case of an assault, us the leg, haha, as my Taekwondo teacher said.

P.S. About yelling, it doesn't matter the temper, it matters how loud. A high-frecuency female scream, and loud enough may make the hearts of small mammals as mice, blow up of tension.
P.P.S. I don't yell cuz I'm shy. But, "BACK OFF" is a good idea. The years of black metal and music school won't pass by.Wink

Well, in all fairness, I understand that girls are not always assaulted based on their appearance. But I figure a little extra preparation never hurt anyone.
