NOTE: I don't know how many people are into MMA, firearms, self defense, lifting and the shooting sports. Quite honestly in my opinion it all goes together...especially if you have an interest in military matters. For those that are interested read on. For those that aren't go on to the next post.
I picked this vid because the guy was talking about tactics instead of giving a quick one or two choreographed best case possible scenarios against an unmotivated attacker.
Every class I've been to stresses a couple of things. First is to EXPECT to get cut. Second is to give up your arms but protect your head, neck and core as much as possible. Third, you will be attacked from ambush.
Another thing I liked about this video is the opening sequence where they show an attacker attempting to inflict maximum damage in minimum time. Not hating on OPSGEAR...they're doing a service by giving out tips and tricks. But compare their video to the one above.
Again, not hating but it leaves out...
* How dynamic an assault will be...
* How it will come seemingly out of no where...
* How injury is a given...many times to both the attacked (by the attacker) and the attacked (because his hand slips and he cuts himself in addition to any damage caused by the person in defense)
* How you're more likely to face multiple attackers due to the physicality required to conduct a successful knife attack.
Knife culture is here and its only going to get worse...especially in states that ban handguns. Get ready for the possibilities. Get off your ass, get in shape, get training and get more training.
