A knife is the favorite weapon of many attackers who wish to hold their victims hostage. Disarming an attacker with a knife is different from disarming one with a gun, but either way the underlying tactic is the same — be smart, act quickly, and turn the tables on your attacker. A hostage situation does not have to be hopeless if you know what to do to protect yourself and disarm your captor. The “Don’t be a Victim” series is designed to teach you self-defense techniques so you can defend yourself in any situation, with anything and everything. Legally we make NO claims that any of these techniques will be 100% effective, as they require substantial training to perfect and every situation is different. This course series is purely for informational purposes only. Don’t be a victim…but do plan your moves strategically.
Throughout the series, we’ll present you with original training techniques from coach Jeremy Pollack from Inner Warrior Coaching, who will cover knife defense, how to disarm a gun from a gunman, and how to use random items such as a belt or stick to defend yourself, and more. Take hold of Coach Jeremy’s 20+ years as a Martial Arts instructor, and Don’t be a Victim! You can always find the ongoing series playlist here.
