I would be interested in seeing some strategies to employ against someone who is faster than you; who is also trained to fight; who might have a handgun.
All of these can make several lessons.
Then there can be lessons on combos of these too. Some younger and thus faster, who is ALSO trained to fight, and who is leveling a pistol at your head.
Well “El Flesh”, you’re obviously not training in the SDTS – because we cover all of this stuff. Your question that brings up a HUGE assumption or mistake that a lot of people who are into martial arts make – it’s not a sparring match.
In martial arts you’re conditioned to focus on SKILL because you’re forced into situations where speed, training, coordination and skill are huge factors. In some way those factors are important is self defense, but not like you think.
Self defense but self defense is more like firearms than fighting.
If this were a “gun fight” the person who wins is the one who hits their target and causes more injury first. For example, he may draw first and shoot you in the arm, but you draw second and put one through his skull – you win.
This is the “same thing.
You may face a guy who is faster and for some reason he gets the drop on you (but if you go through SDTS Module 1 – this will NEVER happen ). He jabs you and then you haul off and knock him out cold with a black jack (SDTS Module 11). He hit you first, but you win.
Let’s say he decides to grapple you and you gouge out an eye…see what I mean.
There will always be someone faster and better trained. It’s the one with THE RIGHT TRAINING for the task at hand and the WILL and RESOURCES to follow through who wins.
