I don’t think I’ve ever moved so fast in all my life. ’ Extract from Unleash the Lioness. As you can see from this extract, the head can be devastating and effective, even when used by accident. This woman, in the midst of an attempted rape scenario felled her attacker by accident with a devastating reverse head butt. Reverse head butt: This attack is potentially one of the most dangerous head attacks because of the pure surprise of it.

Power in the butt relies upon two major things. Firstly, the whiplashing effect of your head as you lurch forward to attack – the body weight being projected slightly before the head, secondly the momentum of the propelling body weight (which should still be travelling forward as the head strikes its target), adding weight and travel to the said attack. Left to right: Please try to follow the pictures here, they will show the technique better than a description. It goes without saying that I would ask a question before attacking, so as to engage the opponent’s brain, thus ensuring a window of entry.

As they meet smash your knee through his face. As I said earlier, if you have the choice better to go for the lower extremities than try to knee him in the head by dragging his head to your knee.
