Gun Disarm in Krav Maga
Krav Maga deals with situations like this, where you are threatened with a knife, two or three guys and fire weapons. Nowadays we have seen all kinds of terrorism taking place in all parts of the world. That is why we need to be open-minded and see options like this.
There are several traditional martial arts where you can learn traditional weapons, their application, and usage which is nice. BUT we have to be realistic, we won’t be carrying any of those weapons on the street, criminals don’t use those either, they feel confident with a knife or gun. I don’t think you can carry a samurai sword, a katana, a bo, a pair of kamas, a pair of say, surikens, some nunchucks… but criminals carry knives and guns. So even if we do love traditional martial arts, how would we react when we are at a gunpoint? Do you think you can tell the guy “wait, there is a technique I know but you have to let me do it slowly”? Sorry but that will get you killed… it’s your life you are talking about…
Training with knives and guns is highly recommended for all martial arts, many have never had a real gun on their hands, and if they ever get assaulted with one they will not know what to do or how to react.
To know the weapons your enemy might use, learn about knives and guns. In today’s world, those are available everywhere and is better to be prepared than not. If you are in the Dojo, training center, karate class…for 1 hour… then train that 1 hour at your maximum, do you very best and don’t fool around; you can always rest later.
Guns are accessible in the black market, knives are everywhere. Would you know what to do in a situation like this?? Have you ever trained or learn how to do a gun disarm?
