Excerpted from what was originally filmed for educational purposes at law enforcement academies throughout North America.
This was considered a ground breaking video on knife attacks back in the 80s. Most schools either didn’t train for knife attacks or they did so unrealistically. Things have gotten better but we have a long way to go.
This is a great example of why you need to pressure test your skills.
Shooting accuracy on the range does not translate directly into accuracy in a real fight. Though factors like shot anticipation, bad trigger control can certainly play a part, I do not believe these are the main reasons. I believe that shooters look at the threat and refuse to allow anything to obstruct their view of the threat, which in this case means the gun sights. After seeing too many good shooters miss horribly low, I’m noticing they aren’t using their sights oftentimes. Worse still, they are not even TRYING to use their sights.
Not my first choice of tools to combat someone with a gun but I give him points for creativity.
MARSOC Marines participate in the Tactical Driving and Shooting Course. Mastering the fundamentals of defensive driving and precision shooting in close quarters enhances the overall effectiveness of the individual operator and team.

This is a very uncomfortable subject that many parents will avoid. You need to have a plan in place that your children can follow.
Every attack is an edged weapon attack until proven otherwise.
