All right guys. So now we’re going to do a couple of self defense scenarios just to show you the different stances you want to take, and how to position yourself and how you want your hands to come up. And when and how to bring them up based on different scenarios. Now, I don’t know what they really have coming up. I know that I’m at a bus stop and I’m waiting for the bus. So, guys, do whatever you got to do. So I’m at the bus stop and I’m waiting. [SOUND] [SOUND] [SOUND] Break. That was awesome work Mark that was very nice. Now, what I basically tried to do. I saw Mark coming in it would make no sense for me to go… the instant he walks in because I’m going to trigger a response the instant he did that. That was just great. Living downtown, where I used to live, I came up to this type of situation pretty often. What was the key thing I was trying to do? Number one, while he was moving around, I don’t want to sit there and have my hands up. I got to be, where is he moving? Where is he coming around? I also for a second, went into my bag and just said, is it going to an obstacle, can I use it against him if something happens? Because I do have it. The other thing I have, well let me keep my hands up. At one point, he came really, really close when he started [SOUND].
Maybe, I would of struck him a little bit closer. Mark at one point he came, when he was out here I was basically keeping my eye. I was moving when he came over here, maybe I would have struck him because he got a little bit nervous, he was moving a little bit too much. He had stuff in his hands. He had a knife there or whatever. But, again, you saw that my hands were coming up. I kept my eye on him. I moved, I didn’t want him to come up my back. A very important thing about being in your fighting stance, if you notice what I did, and this is what I would do very often is that if I saw a threat happen. If I felt uncomfortable, if like I was in the bus stop, right now and this crazy guy just walked in, I wouldn’t keep my hands up. Automatically, my hands would come up. I was already in my fighting stance before he walked in or as soon as I saw him come in. As soon as he came in I was in my fighting stance. So right there I don’t need to think, bring up my hands, I was ready in strike mode immediately. And you have to be proactive, prior as soon as you feel, like if you’re in the bus or in the metro… same scenario and somebody is walking and he is acting all crazy,he is looking at you. I might take my stance right upfront, right before he would come here. Right before and come here. Instead of waiting for the threat, it would make more sense, when he came this close. It was impossible for me to go, oh man whats going on? My hands were already up and wouldn’t make any sense for me to just bring them up. Especially when it was this far for me to go, what’s up man? Are you okay? No. I mean maybe he’s crazy and he’s in his own world. Once he came into my space, which is this, my range, this is when I have to make a decision to strike or go preemptive or ready to defend. Okay? Awesome work [BLANK_AUDIO]
