Today is an episode of TSP Rewind, commercial free versions of past podcast episodes.
Today’s episode was originally, Episode-416- Dealing With Violent Confrontations and was first published on April 14th, 2010.
The following are the original show notes from that episode.
After spending a week with Val Riazanov on systema and Russian martial arts and filming the new DVD series I thought it might be a good day to do a show on dealing with potentially violent confrontations.
Join me today as we discuss…
- Real violence vs. movie violence
- The morals of the criminal, he has none
- Professional = death when it comes to killing
- The first rule is avoiding the confrontation
- If you can’t avoid it focus on deescalation
- If deescalation fails at times controlled retreat is the best option
- You should always appear relaxed and “harmless”
- When you do strike it must be with sufficient force for the situation
- Pressure points are useless in full speed combat, anatomy points are critical
- The “systema strike” – misunderstood and highly effective
- Dealing with an armed opponent takes things to another level
- The knife is the oldest consistently deadly weapon for a reason
- In dealing with an opponent with a gun 1.5-2 meters is “critical distance”
