PE Assignment 2

Done By:-
1) What is skill?
→ is simply the ability to do something well. It’s also the learned ability to
perform an action with determined results and with good execution, often
within a given amount of time, energy or both.
*Skills can be divided into domain-general and domain-specific skills; briefly:- Domain-general:- is a cognitive ability, such as general intelligence or
speed of information processing, that influences performance over a wide
range of situations and tasks.
- Domain-specific:- is the development of one set of skills which is
independent from the development of other types of skills. It suggests that
training or practice in one area may not influence another. So it’s basically a
specialized knowledge of something, such as knowledge of chess, baseball or
music, etc.
2) What is Technique?
→ is a way of carrying out a particular task, especially the execution or
performance of an artistic work or a scientific procedure. So it’s a skilful or
efficient way of doing or achieving something.
E.g:- - Using only one finger while finger painting.
- Using certain techniques to make food (like in baking bread).
- There are also many different techniques that football players use while
playing soccer. Etc.
3) What is Self-defence?
→ is the defence of one’s person or interest, especially through the use of
physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of
violent crime. So it means the use of physical force to protect oneself from the
attacker. It is very important as it allows you to protect yourself, build
confidence, awareness and take appropriate actions in a dangerous situation.
E.g:- He claimed self-defence in the attempted murder charge.
Some of the effective self-defence moves
- Elbows and Knees:- Since our hands have many small, fragile bones, it can
break easily. That’s why using our elbows and our knees, at close range, are
- Front, Side and Round kicks:- Kicks are a very effective strikes because we
can keep our opponent at a distance. The legs are longer than the arms, so we
have a longer striking range resulting in the opponent not being close to us.
Legs are also much stronger than arms, so we can be able to do some serious
damage if we learn how to throw a proper kick.
- Rear naked chokehold:- It focuses on the skill of taking an opponent to the
ground, controlling one’s opponent, gaining a dominant position and using a
number of techniques to force them into submission via joint locks or
chokeholds. Through this technique, you can completely control someone
without hurting them.
- Palm strikes and Tiger claws:- Punching someone in the face with our fist is
not optimal as we’ll more likely break our hand. But, striking someone with the
palm of our hand or scratching them across the face (also known as tiger claw)
might be effective enough to fend off an attacker. The heel palm strike can
cause damage to the nose or throat.
- Running:- Yes, running; because the best way to protect yourself from a fight
is by avoiding the situation altogether. That means having enough social
awareness to prevent chaos, or knowing how to diffuse a potential physical
altercation with words. But since that don’t work sometimes, you just need to
run away, putting your ego aside and getting the heck out of that situation.
“Awareness is key, wherever you are”.
- Hammer strike:- Using our car keys is one of the easiest ways to defend
ourselves. We can either stick them out from one side of our fist for hammer
strikes or use our keys to click them onto a lanyard to swing at our attacker.
- Groin kick:- The classical groin kick is the kicking of a man in the balls. This is
mostly done by women’s towards men. A groin kick may deliver enough force
to paralyze the attacker making it able for the defender (victim) to escape.
*So the above diagram shows the most effective places to hit a person during
self-defence; briefly:- The eye is where you can use two of your fingers to push or press on to
causing severe pain making the attacker fall off.
- The nose is where you can thrust on to by the sharp edge of your finger
bones to let the attacker let go.
- You can use your hands on both the throat and solar plexus to hit it
- The groin is where, like I mentioned above, you can use your knee (if very
close) or leg (if a bit distant) to strike it causing a temporary paralyzing pain to
the attacker letting him fall to the ground.
- The knee is where you can use your leg to smash on to in order to break
off the opponent’s stance and make him fall or to at least slow the movement
of the attacker.
The End!!!
