H2H FIGHTING: The Sucker Punch


The sucker punch has no political affiliation

The Sucker Punch surely has to be one of the oldest H2H fighting moves, I can just imagine a cave man pointing over the shoulder of another cave man and yelling “Tyrannosaurus Rex” then clocking him over the head with a club.

Out of all the H2H fighting techniques this is also one of my favorites and most used, it is also funny and makes me laugh every time I use it. Now you may be thinking “no way I would fall for that” – Ha! I can pretty much guarantee that you will, it is an uncontrollable reaction to look when someone yells and points over your shoulder.

You may not totally turn around, but you will surely take a peek, and that’s when I kick you in the nuts 48 times.

How to Properly Sucker Punch Someone:

- Get close enough to strike your adversary, but not too close - Think of something to say (see list below) like “Godzilla” - Suddenly point over your adversaries shoulder and scream it - Punch him in the face - Kick him in the balls - Kick him in the balls - Kick him in the balls

The hardest part of the Sucker Punch is thinking of something that will not only make your adversary turn around, but is also funny enough so when you tell your friends about it later you can all have a good laugh.

Sucker Punch Distraction Words:

Just point over the shoulder of your sucker and yell one of the following…

- Superman!!! - Jesus!!! - Hamburger!!! - Moose!!! - Zoiks!!! - Book!!!

Out of all of the words above yelling “Superman” seems to be the most effective at distraction for some unknown reason. Why a grown man who was getting ready to fight me would turn around because they thought Superman was behind him escapes me.

But putting aside the humor aspect of this article for a second, the Sucker Punch is actually an effective preemptive fighting technique.

If you are in a situation where you believe violence is imminent and attacking first to defend yourself is the best way to survive, then the Sucker Punch is a good option. So don’t disregard the Sucker Punch as just a gag or something only bar-room brawlers do.
