What are some effective self-defense techniques?

I have moved to a less-than-great neighborhood.

Use your elbow in anyway you can. Go for the soft spots including the groin, throat, solar plexus, kidneys, temples, and eyes. If the attacker has a weapon disarm them by setting them off balance or tripping them. Don't be afraid to be cheap including throwing sand and kicks to the groin. Avoid a conflict in anyway possible.

Basic hand to hand combat training would do you good in a fight on the street .Most marshall arts teach basic self defence .That way you basicly know how to defend youself in a fight or to defend yourself if someone was to come after you in a fight.Good luck
