Like the ancient warriors of the Philippines who smeared the tips of their arrows, spears or blades with deadly poision, the KOMBOKAN is happy to share techniques that could come in handy in case of attack. I call this the Labuyo or "Bird's Eye Chilli".
This simple technique employs the crushing of dried or fresh labuyo in the fingers and hands and as soon as the attacker approches, the defender goes straight to the attacker's eyes by way of jab and face scraping which will cause temporary stinging and painful blindness. After applying chilli to the eyes, this technique can either be followed up by series of disabling strikes or simply escape. The exercises for this technique is hand/wrist and arm flexibility, speed and coordination. Instead of focusing on the attacker's hands or limbs, it is best effective to go straight to the eyes especially if the attacker is armed with a weapon.
I would highly recommend to always carry a piece or two of the chillies in your pocket kept in a small zip lock bag. If trouble is around the corner, grab into your pocket and be ready to break the zip lock bag and crush the chillies with your fingers. Make sure not to touch your eyes with your hands after you crushed them.
In case you stung your attacker with your chillied hands or fingers resulting to some injuries, you can always give the police a very good excuse. Simply tell the police that you love chillies in your food and they will always believe that.
