Multiple Attackers: Are You Fooling Yourself…

IRT Scenario 14

Multiple Attackers: Are You Fooling Yourself…

Throughout the years I have been involved in a lot of practice against multiple attackers.  I’ve even had a little success in practice and in real life.  However, make no mistake I understand that having more than one attacker to deal with is simply bad karma!  It is hard enough dealing with one person armed or unarmed and when you add in another or even two or three attackers your odds go way, way, way down.  Simply put real life is not like the movies where the good guy takes on endless attackers and comes out unscathed.  Life rarely works out that way.  No instead one person usually loses to two committed attackers and the odds get even worse when you add more.  Never lose sight of this!  Always remember to try and even the odds in your favor by forcing them to attack you one on one or even better get away or get a tool to help your odds.  It is not impossible to survive against multiple attackers but it is extremely dangerous just like facing a knife empty handed.  Be a realist and do not fall for fantasy.  Always train to get an advantage!  Always train with the mindset of just how difficult life really is.  Forget fantasy!!!

Precision

20191006_122349

In a moment of violence you need to be as precise as you can be to be effective. Precision training has to be a regular part of your training regimen. Whether you are striking, shooting, grappling, etc. You need to make sure that in your training you focus on being accurate. If you do this you should have built in the precision that you will need in a moment of violence. How do we do this? When practicing I work very hard on making sure that I strike exactly where I want to. This is repeated over and over until that accuracy and precision is developed and instinctive. Remember the phrase “perfect practice leads to perfect form.” If you strive for perfection in your practice with accuracy you will have a chance for precision in that moment of violence! You can’t ask for more than that!

Traverse City Training

I had a great time training in Michigan!  We trained empty hand vs the blade and worked on trusting intuition.  We also covered managing your adrenaline in a moment of violence.  Great training with great friends!!!

Vary Your Training!

Silat Hand Movements 1

Let’s face it we are creatures of habit.  We start doing something and we like it.  Next thing you know we do the same thing again and again.  In training this can lead to you becoming very stagnant and you probably will plateau seeing no significant gains.  We need to vary our training to avoid this problem.  Constantly change up what you are doing so that you shock your muscles as well as motivate yourself.  Do not get stuck in a rut.  No, create a training routine with lots of variety!
