Not knocking the guy for kicking a girl in the head at all, just taking scientific note that they're more vulnerable to it.




just how are females "scientifically" more vulnerable to a head kick???


no comment on the disarm, I wasn't there and don't know the ins and outs.

Referring to my personal notes: documented successful head kicks against armed male assailants-0
documented successful head kicks against armed female assailants-1. You see my logic? hahaha, take it easy, I'm just joking around. Some people are no fun at all.

I just thought a male would be more vulnerable due to having 2 heads, one located 2.5-3ft closest to the ground

I'd say the guy is lucky he isn't dead and that he was apparently targeted by the Apple Dumpling Gang.

"The Darwin Principle" AGAIN... wow.

Style and stupidity are different S words, but I would substitute them in this particular case . He rolled the dice and won, this time...

This is why you carry your concealed .32 in the pocket where one usually keeps one's wallet.

Pushed the gun kicked her and ran,,,,,not much of a beat down.

Maybe he knew the gun was not real and ran because he also felt that the other 2 men might beat him down.

I know I've said this before here on the forums, and some of the oldtimers are apt to get testy with me for repeating myself, but here goes: Many years ago I ran into some copies of one of the early H2H manuals of the Brit commandos. In it were quite a few armed-vs.-unarmed techniques against rifle, bayonet, pistol, knife, etc. But at the bottom of one of the pages was a very stark comment by the author or authors, stating that an unarmed commando using these techniques stood a 10% chance of surviving the encounter with an armed opponent. Therefore the techniques were meant to be used when it was judged that death was inevitable, regardless of whether or not resistance was offered.
It struck me hard then, as a young MArtist who believed that he could do the same thing as in the Bruce Lee- Chuck Norris movies, if only he trained hard enough. It brought in a healthy dose of reality to my thinking.
To this day, I guide myself by this principle of 10% survivability against an armed attacker. Thank God it's been many, many years since I've had to even think about it!
