What would be the easiest and shortest way to describe that someone does something without looking at it?

This »on blind« is a direct translation from my home country language, but in Google books, I cannot find any connections with what I am trying to say with it.

Does that make sense in American English?
Any other suggestions that do not implement numerous of words to describe this simple action like:
He raises his hand without to look at the approaching opponent – danger – thing.
