Unarmed combat versus zombies?

Any recommendations for the best moves for unarmed combat with zombies should one forgot a good edged weapon?

I'm assuming flying kicks or anything in the chest area to knock the zombie as far away to avoid getting bit or clawed, and I assume to avoid pressure point techniques because zombies don't care if you are jamming on a nerve center. Perhaps bone locks but the more close a contact one has with a zombie, the higher the chance of being infected.

You do realize that this only prolongs the inevitable death or zombiefication... Without a decent weapon, you will be overwhelmed by them in a short time.

Without armament what you need is deterrent, like a dog in a junkyard.
In the case of zombies I would recommend taking Rosie O'Donnell off of her meds and that should chase most of the zombies out of earshot.
However one needs to be careful not to fall into a cycle of diminishing returns. To get rid of a manic Rosie you need an enraged Barbara Walters, and so on. Very quickly you may end up missing the zombies.

Why not go get a car and run em over? I can believe that you might be without a gun, and shame on you for not having a blade. But cars are everywhere. I don't care where you are, if you are anywhere with any number of people, you can find a car. Cars, especially big ones, are outstandingly dangerous.

They are, but not for repetitive killing. A human body can damage a car pretty well, and after 5 or more, you're car is getting to the point of being undriveable. I'd say, look for a semi, one with a full cab. It would be a pretty good zombie killer/traveling safe haven.

You would need someone like Jack Burton to do the driving though. He as experience running down the supernatural with it.

(let's see who knows that reference)

Failing that, an armored bulldozer is your friend.

We have cell phones now right? I'd text that little kid over in Japan and have him wake up Godzilla for me. Godzilla could eat tens of thousands of zombies a day.

I think I'd rather steal a WWII tank, half track from a war museum or a modern 6x6 or 8x8 from an army base though.
