I was currious what some of the dog trainners recommend as the best way to fight an all out attacking pitbull empty handed.
I have been to some martial arts seminars . and have heard two basic styles to fighting a dog unarmed.
I am also curious of how often decoys are injured. when bite suites go bad.

Depends if the dog was trained or not.

I have heard some stupid stuff about poking the eyes and breaking the dog's back.. LOL. That doesn't work.

With an untrained dog, you can usually blow it away into avoidance. A person can fend off a dog with a jacket. However, many people go into their prey mode.

Bite suits don't go bad. It usually happen because of inexperienced decoys trying too much or almost always, due to INEXPERIENCED HANDLER NOT FOLLOWING FREAKING INSTRUCTIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I had one BRUTAL BRUTAL HANDLER that sent her dog on me when I had no suit top on on at a show! This dog was an EXCLUSIVE top body biter. I fended off the dog with my pants. YOu don't see this in a ring or sch club. However, at a bulldog show.......just brutal handling! yOU JUST HAVE TO KEEP A COOL HEAD. If you are afraid of being bitten, you are not going to be a good decoy.

They get bled alot. hands feet.

My arms and legs are FULL of scars. My fiance thought I was a drug user! LOL.

It is not for slow fat guys, I assure you. YOu have to accept you are going to the hospital sooner or later. Suit work is especially demanding.

This is why a good decoy is like GOLD! They ARE the club. A shitty decoy means a shitty club. A great decoy means a good club.

no I am talking about haveing a trained dog sicced on you. fighting and killing the dog is your only option whats the best way empty handed. If the dog still has it's collar it can be choked. I understand this is better than beating the dog. it's a given you will be bit

Well I carry a knife and it goes right into the dogs ribs if it attacks me or my dog if I cant get it off.

I carried mace but I realized that was abot as useful as spraying perfume in a fight so I guess I will have to get a knife.....There are a lot of intact Pits in my area and I doubt there owners are that responsible

Same here. They dump them in the park when they are done fighting them or using them for bait. Its a big city so there are lots of wannabe tough guys around with their "pits".

If you ever have to use that mace spray it in their nose too.

A lady that I work with claims to have a GSD in the past that was a show champion, and during training in England, she was taught that if a dog ever attacked, to get in front of it and grab it as high up as possible by the front legs, by the chest and suddenly jerk them apart as hard and as far as possible, thus damaging the heart.

I dont want to personally get in front of the dog close enough, I dont want a scarred up face!!

I think shes crazy, but thats just my opinion, seems like a big risk to more injury to try to do all that.

I have encountered a few dogs that have intimidated me off leash, and you never know what they know, so I always act as aplha when I encounter them. And most of the time they listen because they are surprised we know they understand what no means!!

I have been lucky, I know this, a real dog attack?????????Kicking and screaming I guess!!!IF Im not prepared and have no other means!!! Right in the stomache.

No Mase, no knives, no sticks, no stun guns, just with your hands and one visciuous dog. I know it will not be a pretty sight. As A friend of mine that does military training says with regard to knife attack defense better to lose a finger than to lose your head.
I have read where they used to fight midgets and pits in the 1800's , and I would imagine if a midget could beat a pit a full size man should too.

I have never heard of midgets fighting pits and doubt if that did occur, the midgets would not win or it mustve been one POS pit.

I dont think eye gouging would work on a pit that was really determined.

on a side note 3 years ago my daughte 3 at the time triped over a loose pit bull mix.. as it turned to nip at her I grabbed it as only a psyco parent would and twisted it scruff and lifted the 40lbs mutt in the air walked it over to the owner and punched him in the chest with his dogs snarling face. I then told him to put a leash on the dog before I put a leash on him.
10 mins later whwn things cooled down my wife made me appologise. :oops:

They recently had a special in our town on like 20/20 or 60 minutes - one of those type shows - on how to defend yourself during a dog attack. They said the first place you should go for if the dog is over/on top of you, is their thigh area - they said you should grab their inner thighs and squeeze real hard, as this is a very sensitive area for them. Don't know how true it is since I've never been attacked, but that's what they said. :)

it's a given 20/20 needs glasses and sixty mins need to have it's watch repaired, Flanking a dog or pulling on it's inner thigh is a good way to aggitate it not kill it or knock it unconcious something you will need to do if you want to surive an attack of let's say a chriss Fraise trainned dog
