UNARMED SELF-DEFENSE AGAINST WEAPON ATTACK

FOUR BASIC RULES
  1. CLEAR YOUR BODY of the weapon's line of fire and/or angle of attack.
  2. STABILIZE and CONTROL the WEAPON, breaking the base of the enemy's balance, utilizing low kicking and sweeping, joint locking and breaking, spinning and jerking the enemy off balance.
  3. DISARM the WEAPON. Utilizing joint breaking, throwing and tearing, the unarmed defender focuses his/her counterattack and mental concentration upon the weapon, never losing control or "feel" for the weapon. His/Her primary concern being this one factor, giving lethality to his/her assailant's attack.
  4. NEUTRALIZE the ENEMY. Once the assailant has been disarmed, the enemy must be neutralized and physical control must be maintained.

 

NO MATTER HOW PROFICIENT THE UNARMED EXPERT AT DISARMING AN ARMED ASSAILANT, HE/SHE WILL REMAIN VULNERABLE TO EVEN THE SMALLEST WEAPONS EXPERT.
