People - A creature with generally two legs and two arms of which natural motion could be generated in any direction to create impact with any point of body contact. Generally it is wise to use hard bones to hit soft pressure points...
Strikes - to strike at pressure points you need to create momentum which is acceleration of mass over distance and maintain it through penetration of that pressure point to reach the desired effect of control, damage or death. You need not project your attempts as your opponent might move away from your intended hitting location and your attempt will be futile. Also you need to plan your next move if that happens.
Kicks - To kick at pressure points you need to create momentum which is the same principle of aforementioned strikes.
Pressure Points - Striking, tearing and gouging points which upon activation, cause distraction through the senses, and bodily damage limiting functioning to the purpose of being unable to attack back.
Using Leverage - Using greater force achieved with more parts of the body or with a stronger part, motion, or faster speed, in the weakest direction or redirection even in the same direction to deflect strikes, kicks, and to escape restraining holds.
Using bare hands - Meaning using your body only.
Using Sharp Objects Using a handy object or a knife.
Using Blunt Objects Using a chair or a club or such.
Preventing getting shot at when possible Using the limits of reaction time to overcome a gun threat.
Preemptive attack makes sense that if you are the first to properly attack your opponent will not be in attack mode and you will have an advantage, so if you keep going and nothing stops you, you will prevail. If you let go, there could be a reversal of fortunes.
