===Defending Yourself From an Attack===
#Attack their throat with strikes and chokes. The throat is a weak point in a person's body. When defending yourself, attack their throat by punching or hitting it. If you’re able to get your arm completely around their neck, you can apply pressure to their carotid artery to induce unconsciousness. This artery can be found on both sides of the neck and only requires 11 pounds of pressure to close.[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 1 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Kick them in the groin. While this tends to be more effective when dealing with a male opponent, kicking anyone regardless of sex in the groin will temporarily incapacitate them, making it a great strategy when defending yourself. Make sure you are close enough to them to make clean contact, and don’t hesitate.<ref>http://www.self-defense-mind-body-spirit.com/4-mistakes-groin-strikes.html</ref>[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 2 Version 2.jpg|center]]

#Use their momentum and size against them. The art of Judo uses your opponents momentum and size against them in the form of throws. Even though your opponent may be bigger, it doesn’t mean they are immune to being thrown. Think of ways to use their size to your advantage. For example, instead of meeting them face on, try tripping their feet while they charge forward at you.[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 7.jpg|center]]

#Go to the gym and get in good physical shape. While superior technique may give you the ability to beat a larger opponent, having good physical fitness is also critical. Make sure to weight train to build up your muscle. Work on your cardio and endurance by doing drills, running, swimming, or biking. If you are in a prolonged fight, it’s important that you have the endurance to overcome your opponent.[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 9.jpg|center]]

#Do calisthenic exercise on your spare time. Calisthenic exercise is exercise that’s performed without any gym equipment and uses your own body-weight as resistance. This is a great alternative for those who can’t get to the gym, or want to get stronger while they are at home. Try to drill and chain your calisthenic exercise together in order to simultaneously work out your cardio and endurance.[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 10.jpg|center]]

#Train in a striking martial arts discipline. Striking is the art of punching and kicking your opponent.

#Learn how to grapple if the fight goes to the ground. Many fights end up on the ground, or in a wrestling or grappling situation. This can pose an obvious disadvantage if you are competing against someone that's strong. If you’re able to learn how to grapple however, you will have the advantage against someone who is untrained in any grappling arts.[[Image:Beat a Strong Man Step 14.jpg|center]]
