iFightback for iPhone: Stop Being a Wimp and Learn How to Protect Yourself

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

I'm no tough guy and I try to stay in my lane but sometimes there's just these prickjob nutcases who get a little too close, you know? iFightback teaches you how to protect yourself. Self-defense is a good thing!

What's it do?

It's an app that lets you scan through a series of self-defense tutorial videos complete with what you should do, what you shouldn't do and instructions on how to perform the exact nose punch (and other ways to get out of that sticky situation) . The app presents you with semi-plausible scenarios like being stuck in an elevator with a perp or escaping rape and more, and literally guides you through the steps. You don't have to be scared anymore! Or at least, you can be less scared.


Why do we like it?

Cause people should know these things! The app isn't exactly expansive with selection (sadly) but what it does show you can be incredibly useful. Obviously, already knowing how to fight or running through situations in an organized class is much better than learning from your iPhone but seeing videos on how it's done is still better than being completely clueless. The app is also well-intentioned, though I would love to see tips that generally work in all situations. Like a "five things you need to learn" or something. iFightback is free but it requires a $2 in-app purchase to unlock all the videos.
