Someone approaches you in a dark quiet road, perhaps as you are entering your home, or as you fumble for your car keys to enter your vehicle.
Immediately fear and adrenaline explode into your veins as you stare at the weapon (knife or pistol, your response will be the same).
The assailant demands something from you, money, jewellery or worse case demands you go to another location with him.
What do you do?
A) Give him everything he asks?
B) Go with him to another location of his choosing?
D) Grab for the weapon or his wrists and disarm him like Jason Bourne?
E) Clear the weapon and attack the assailant?
Only 3 of the above would give you the best chance of surviving this type of self-defence scenario. How do we know? Firstly we do our research on the facts and statistics of such encounters, then we train in exactly the same scenario to test the results in as real as possible confrontations. The answers of what works and what doesn't always surprises our students, until you train for REALITY you will never appreciate what you are capable of and what you are not UNDER STRESS CONDITIONS.
What we will say here is D would give you highest rate of being killed. The very thing that is still taught today in so many so called self-defence classes. Don't do it.
