When faced with a potentially dangerous situation, knowing WHEN to respond is just as important as knowing HOW to respond. You can’t beat up or shoot everybody who asks you for directions, but you also can’t put yourself at risk by being overly polite. In this brief video, I confront Matt Robinson, a highly trained Krav Maga instructor, with several common scenarios, ranging from somebody asking directions to an armed robbery. Matt demonstrates how and why he would respond to the various situations.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a DEMONSTRATION, not a tutorial. As Matt explains, there are legal implications to any self-defense encounter, and the opinions presented in this video are NOT intended to be advice. You should always train with a qualified instructor and make your own decisions about how to respond to potentially dangerous situations.
