This is without a doubt one of the most dangerous and worst ideas for killing a zombie I’ve ever seen. But guess what? I’ve actually seen this in a zombie movie. Return of the Living Dead 2. The zombie in question was a real squishy, soft type. The bone had gotten all soft and it seems like it’s whole head just melted under this woman’s punch. I don’t know if you’ve ever been in a fight, but punching people hurts. It hurts your hand it breaks the skin, it causes cuts, and it can break the bones in your fingers. That’s with a regular person. Now imagine that you’re trying to punch something that’s trying to eat you. I don’t think this is a really good idea for anything other than a last resort. With a regular zombie it would be just like trying to punch a person. You know how many times you would have to punch someone in the face to actually kill them or stop them the way we see in the zombie movies? By the time he destroyed the zombies bring your hands would be Paul and you’d probably be infected if it was a medical zombie.
Even though I don’t like this method I can at least understand. After all if you’re backed into a corner, you don’t have a weapon and the something is coming after you, of course you’re going to try to punch it or push it or kick or something, anything to get away from you. My feeling with these things is that I want to have as little physical contact with them as possible. The chances are that if you try to put them in a headlock or you try to strangle them or you go anywhere near their mouths they’re going to bite.
So if you want to get a little extra training or you want to be just a little bit more prepared for the zombie apocalypse you might want to try taking a self-defense class that lets you avoid contact with people who are trying to hurt you and helps you find ways to push them away or get them away without actually having to come into contact with them. Unless you’re properly trained in hand-to-hand combat like kung-fu or other martial arts you’re not likely to stand much of a chance against zombies using this.
