So, you read the title of this post and thought to yourself, why, exactly, should I bother clicking play on this video?
The answer to that is quite simple….the same reason it’s important to know how to perform CPR or have an emergency funds savings account. We don’t anticipate having to save someone’s life or the car breaking down but we know it could happen and we prepare for it, right?
Why not take a few moments to learn a technique that could possibly save your life and de-escalate a potentially violent situation?
I would suggest, however, that you actually practice this many times before even attempting to use it in a real life situation. And your motive should never be that of hero status but because you had zero choice. Your life should be equivalently on the line at that point. However, anytime someone is pointing a gun at you, your life is potentially seconds away from being non-existent. This is what you call blurred lines. Not being able to tell the difference.
With so many incidents of people shooting up schools, movie theaters, malls, etc….as well as murder suicides, robberies, home invasions, domestic violence and all of the other foolishness going on in today’s society, being able to properly disarm a violent fool is certainly better than the alternative? What’chu think?
Thank you functional self-defense for this video, I’m looking forward to practicing this technique until I’m able to do it in my sleep!
Do you think knowing how to disarm someone is a valuable skill? What are your thoughts on the disarming techniques used in this video?
