Phukwiv Mien Dai

This is a new self-defense system invented by unassuming longtime abused ex-lawyer with background in karate and being beaten.

In some ways similar to hapkido, it uses a combination of karate, wing-chun, and aikido as the base with some addition of judo, brasilian jujitsu, boxing and improvised available objects as weapons for murderous survival.

It is not meant to be useful for actual brawling or to prove anything. It is not meant to look good or help gain popularity. It is specifically designed for loser outcasts who have neither the natural physique nor the personality for fighting to protect themselves when abused, by any means necessary.

As an ex-lawyer, the founder incorporates legal issues into the training and conditioned responses so that people know when they can resort to efficient and potentially lethal responses in order to avoid physical assault and public or private humiliations without being charged with a crime (since they are acting in self-defense).

This is a style that would be guaranteed to fail in the ufc or similar theaters but that may well succeed in real life for its stated purposes. The purpose is to allow the abused person to neutralize their opponent so that they can evade and continue to live freely.

The punches include boxing and standard straight karate punches as well as wing chun striking and karate based kicks, knees and elbows but the primary strike is a wing chun adaptation that is also found in some styles of karate as the ‘sparring punch’. These short quick and precise straight punches are the main response followed by aikido-like joint breaking if necessary. During a melee, judo and jujitsu submissions may also become necessary.

Finishing according to wing chun attitudes is taught so that at the first opportunity quick blows to key zones such as eyes, throat/adam’s apple, groin, or solar plexus are employed or immediate breakage of a joint if possible. Key positionings for landing strikes at the chin such as to KO someone (ie upsetting the jaw from the side to jar the skull into blackout) are also taught but are not relied upon as much. Clawing, gouging, and biting are also encouraged as is mobility that enables one to strike the person from their back, preferably in the back of the head at the base. Finally, at any appropriate point during a melee, practitioners are encouraged to develop creative improvisations of found objects available to use as potentially lethal weapons. Since the people for whom this style is suited do not start fights, it is always ethically sound.

The training method is similar to krav maga but the style is different. Real life full contact fight is the emphasis in the training but it is not aggressive nor is it about extended fighting. It is about survival as one who is not suited to fight physically or psychologically and knows it, one who in fact never truly wants to fight, but one who is being abused and thus must end the abuse with extreme prejudice. The shorter the fight the better and if the opponent must die for the abused to be free, good riddance.

Interaction with the experienced street fighting community is encouraged as these people have a lot that the Phukwiv Mien Dai community can learn from, however it is only useful insofar as it improves our ability to adapt our style to our needs and specifications ie we do not and know that we cannot be full out ‘fighters’ so we use fighting wisdom for what would work for us, not for a showy brawler in good physical condition.
