Although I've not been trained in FORMAL martial arts, I've been trained in various
defense techniques that are designed to cripple, kill, or put out of action IMMEDIATELY an attacker.

I'd love to learn some of your tips, tricks, and techniques.

Here are a few of mine:
(you probably have heard these before)

testicles: grab, twist, pull, then strike down on them with the free hand

eyes: gouge with thumb and forefinger while striking with palm of hand

knee: if you're on the ground- using palm of hand, strike hard blow to outside of knee

What others do you know?

Stand against evil, lest evil have its way...

two painful ones to list:

1. a good jab to the throat/windpipe area will make most people take a few moments to think about how much we take respiration for granted.

2. properly done, a sharp blow into the armpit will really smart. A knife or something truly sharp will sever a large artery.

there are lots of areas on the body where there is a lot of nerves but little skin/muscle/fat covering them. Like on the back of the hand, top of the foot.

a good cat fight move is the hairpull. of course this might be more for getting someone to comply with you rather than you helping them expire

Headbutt, knees and elbow. To the the most local point of the adversary, at the earliest

Get past their punch and a elbow or palm heel to the base of the skull is a pretty convincing behavior modificator.
