In the liveleak.com video below, a police officer tries and fails to subdue a suspect. Repeatedly. Eventually shots are fired and the suspect is perforated. Whether or not the officer faced an imminent, credible threat of grievous bodily harm, justifying lethal force, is a separate question. My enquiry here . . .
Are you ready to go hands-on?
You may find yourself in a fight where your firearm is either unavailable or undesirable. If so, you need some sort of hands-on self-defense skills. Simple, effective techniques that allow you to end a fight or, at the least, escape. Quickly.
I recommend Krav Maga. You don’t need to be particularly fit — although it will help get you there — or coordinated. You don’t need years of training to learn something useful to do in a physical altercation.
The basics of going hands-on are basic enough: attack! And then leave. The longer a “situation” lasts, the worse your chances of emerging unscathed. Or relatively unscathed. Or, indeed, alive.
