Here’s a great video search to look up on YouTube Why blocking is useless! A Las Vegas Cop. It came up on my feed today.
Not sure if we can directly post the link because sometimes there are ads, so check it out it struck home with me because of my experience recently and I remember this topic so I felt it might be a good share.
These are the techniques he points out
- Control range
Body language is a tell when someone is frothy or code “hobbit”(hostile belligerent threatening)
I used these elements in September last year and because I didn’t kick or beat the tar out of the guy I was good.
I could have used kick boxing or jiu-jitsu but it’s not about going toe to toe. It’s to take the threat out as quick as possible with the minimum amount of force, if I went toe to toe, I would have been a mutual combatant and most likely been deemed excessive.
On a side note after this event it got me thinking I should check out that USCCA thing, so I joined thereafter. It’s been such a great experience ever since.
Love the organization and our community/family
Have a great weekend everyone just my 2 cents and getting off my soapbox.
