Personal Protection Tip: Learn Weapon Disarming Technique

Personal Protection Tip: Learn Weapon Disarming Technique

If I have said it once, I have probably said it a thousand times: Avoidance is the best personal protection strategy. The best defense is one that you do not have to wage. Safety is best accomplished by the following: Making Good Decisions, Maintaining Awareness, and Avoiding Known Violent People.
However, it is still possible that despite our very best efforts to practice the aforementioned tactics, an assailant armed with a weapon can mount an attack against you.
At that precise moment, you will need to how you are going to address it. You do have options and none of them are guaranteed to work. There is no right response or wrong response. The only applicable response is the response you have consciously decided to make. Hopefully, you have given the matter some thought before it actually happens.
To begin, you could obey every directive given to you by your armed attacker. However, there is no assurance that you won't be injured or killed anyway. Moreover, you could also choose to flee if possible or mount a defense.
Among the defensive options available to you would include biding your time until you could produce your self-defense tool of choice or if you have the appropriate training take or disarm your attacker.
There are a variety of disarming techniques that one can learn. Being effective at it would require being taught a proven system, practicing that system regularly, remaining calm, being resolute in your decision, and being relatively close to your assailant.
There are risks at exercising this option - No different than those risks present by entrusting your safety and welfare to a violent predator.
Bottom Line: Learning a disarming technique could be another option in your defensive personal protection toolkit.
