Defense against an opponent who is using one arm to block a doorway

  • Tell the opponent to stop.
    • Blocking a door does not constitute assault, so the use of violence is not authorized.
  • If the opponent does not stop once you’ve made it clear that you must escape to avoid a real threat of injury, then they are maliciously playing a part of the assault attempt, and the use of violence is authorized.
  • Front kick to their groin.
  • As they bend over, attack with a two-fingered spearhand strike to their eyes.
