What do you do if...
Most *ahem* "fisticuffs" will begin with a push, shove or grab. This holds especially if the initiation of force comes from LEO, who will almost always seek to restrain versus opening an attack with a strike. Don't get complacent, if LEO thinks you are a handfull he won't hesitate to try and soften you up with an elbow or baton kiss. (If they know you are a handfull, they'll come heavy with a dynamic entry team even if they know you are only armed with a ballpoint pen and a smile - but that's a story for another day. ;)
Dummies who grab are fun. A serious fighter can do so much more damage when a dummy grabs and holds.
But answer this honestly and without anyone listening to the answer but yourself - how many ways do you know out of the simple front choke pictured above? No bravado. No "cold dead hands". No ".45 ways".
I could ask a thousand more questions about his stance, what he'll do next, where his weight is now, and where it will be if he is driving forward or flat-footed, right hand or left.
I already know the answers.
Please take the time to learn. Time is short. The life you save may not only be yours.
Krav Maga, folks. I advocate it not because I get a commission. I'm not in the Krav business. My skill-set is based on arts other than Krav.
My experience is based on Life.
I advocate Krav because no other matrial art will make you as prepared for the real world in just 6 months of hard training. None.
Here's one report.
