Its a good idea also after you separate to step laterally while going to your Taser or Pistol to stay ahead of the bad guys OODA loop and make him work to require you as a target.

The teacher is still thinking in the context of rules and does not acknowledge in this skill set that bad guys don't play fair. In some of those techniques a swift kick to the groin would suffice.

I used to train at the LAB when Jason Beck started it up. Great guys that love the various sports they are involved in. But it is just that sport. Shin kicks are easy on a mat in no shoes, hard with boots, in the gravel, duty belt and ballistic vest. Try to shrimp out with gear on laying in the middle of 120 degree pavement.

Please if you are going to show some of this, put the uniform and gear on first. Do it over and over then decide if you should send it to this website.

Love your intent, i really do.
