A revolver has only a hammer – yes And this – this thing has a pin and a slide, that is pulled – right So again. Please show again what you would normally do Slowly, slowly, slowly In a situation like that. Look. No no, slowly, slowly. One, two, boom. You got a hole – yes, that’s right You would have to be so incredibly fast. Try again. Already shot That’s what I am thinking too. That means the point .. or the mistake is Erm .. that’s why most people who try this have problems. Because they forget about that fact To distract – Distraction! Right. Let’s try again, if someone holds the gun here. *laughing* No, not distracting. What you .. what you show normally in class. I see. What normally is shown. For example this one. Look here. Repeat slowly. The distance . again … when you move May be like ‘Oh yes, oh, oh, oh, I give you everything!’ No, no, not what you teach. What is normally taught to people. That would be like starting to move somehow down here Yes, mostly somehow like – Already shot! – That’s my point. See, that movement is slower The distance is longer than the trigger fingers Therefore first you need, to buy some time, .. .. distract. Do it – *snap* – distract. .. Yes. That’s great! Because in that moment, I have to look there and turn back This distance is smaller – Right. I like to tell my students to use some coins or something in case of an emergency Just throw some coins to the floor To have some coins their pocket and if someone oddly approaches them, just take them out Right – and just drop them Right, this is a trick you can teach to your students Because its money. Everyone reacts and looks to this sound. Right. Now look. If you punch me Punch me You don’t need to do so much – good. Okay? Oh, yeah. That works too. And that’s a tactic for professionals. Sometimes people say, this doesn’t work. Of course it does not work! If you and your partner already know the technique – Right – decisive is the moment you choose to pull that off Threaten me I can .. do this .. I can .. do that .. I can .. go this way I can .. go that way I can .. here turn into this I can do anything There are so many techniques But if there is no distraction Then the distance to move from here to there or even from here is longer than to pull the trigger How can this be balanced? This doesn’t mean there is a 100% guarantee, but .. the more you can distract The better it is – the better it is! Then you have a chance, because you must be able to create a distraction here, there, no matter .. In that moment your opponent needs to reprogram and you can use this gap It’s called a ‘golden second’ I see – For self-defense purposes it’s recommended to look for golden seconds If I have a knife Erm .. I have nothing better When I .. let’s say .. If there’s a knife I’ll try to show with this If I had a knife I approach you The same. What would you do? Yes .. if there is a distraction you can do that All techniques. If someone comes .. .. and people just start to do this .. it won’t work. Except if your opponent moves In the very moment he moves If this happens don’t distract Don’t do that If I start to move, you move too. Right. But only then. – Right! then it’s going to work – right. And also not standing there. Go again. Look. It is the same. Turn to the side. Yes Turn to the side And look You miss as well, right? – Yes. – Look again. I have to look what your hand is doing – Right! Like what’s he doing with that hand – Yes! But if you do this you have to make sure to evade this then you can punch But if you use this See that? In the moment you look there It gives me room – right Okay Thank you for visiting!
