i've used it once or twice. i used arm locks on a bully who was picking on this 'simple' kid i knew.
i used to know a guy who descided to be a Kato to my inspector cluso and attck me at various time thorughout the day.....he seemd to think it was a great idea. other tha these i ,by the grace of God, have had a very nice peacefull existance.

>>>Your 3200 figure brings to mind a question. Do you think it's necessarily better to have so many options to draw from when your in a high pressure situation like SD? <<

HAving too many things to draw from has potential negative consequences. On the other hand, think of a skilled carpenter. He may use only 20% of his tools 90 % of the time. The other 10% he may be able to improvise and use what he has, but to get the job done efficiently haviing the right tool available is essential.

A competant practitioner (aka black belt) would only need to use a small number of techniques which he is comfortable with and has become proficient in to protect himslef. On the other hand a Master instructor would need to know most if not all techniques that are avaliable inorder to provide each practioner/student he is resonsable for trainning with a range of tools that they can use.

This would be the difference bewteen a competant fighter and somebody who has Mastery over an Art or any skill for that matter.

Reminds me of the story of the cat and the fox.

The fox asks the cat, "What do you do when the dogs come?"

"I run up the tree,"

"And, what else?"

"I stay there... it works"

"Is that all, I know a hundred different ways to avoid or outrun them... and you only know one!"

"Hey, it works."

At that moment the baying of the bad-boy bow-wows is heard. The cat scarpers up the nearest tree.

"Hah, watch this!" says the fox. "Now which of the hundred techniques shall I aaaarrrrrrggghhhh!!!"

The point of the story is clear, however. When i was a carpenter i had two very large tool boxes with a huge mix of tools for special jobs. on a day to day basis i would use a hammer a saw and a plane. these were the tools i cleaned and kept as sharp as a razor blade.95% of my work was carried out with these tools and the other tools in the box were seldom used.when i needed them ,howeevr, they were the most usefull items i owned.

Leaving, running, getting away is a good response if you are alone. If you have your family with you, it is a little harder to do if you are not already in your car or moving to your car.

If there is a significant other, have them move themselves and the children to a location out of harms way why you use your verbal skills to de-escalate the situation. As dereck said, keeping hands open and up to show a less threatening but protective position.

Once family is safely out of the situation then you can start to retreat. If a confrontation can not be avoided, do what you can to discourage the attack or end it quickly. Keep distance, use circular movement, & know your environment. Always look for an avenue to escape.

Another common example where leaving is not an option is if some "bone head" comes into your place of businessa and attempts to impose his will on you. De escalation skilss become very important, but losing your business through intimidation is not a real option.

'Running' is always the best option. If it can't be avoided however, like most have said in this thread, strike fast and hard, keep your distance and run when the opportunity comes up. The purpose of self-defense is not to finish off your aggressor(unless he/she seriously doesn't learn their lesson). It also helps to know a thing or two about vital and pressure points.
