Gun disarm: Armed Firearms Trainer Shoots Man Who Corners Him

Reading time: 3 minutes

Gun disarm is a hot topic in many martial arts. In this video, I want to show you how could be difficult and dangerous in a real situation.

Would you have taken the route that this legally armed firearms trainer took? Would your other skills have come to the front, or would you shoot him as well?

What does this video teach us about defending ourselves against an attack?

A life of self-protection must be dedicated to avoidance, de-escalation, and escape whenever possible. You win 100% of the fights that you don’t get in, so make a commitment to de-escalate, escape, or evade any encounter you possibly can. Having good situational awareness will give you more time and opportunity to see problems coming and formulate a plan to stay away and protect yourself without danger to yourself or others. This is always our first choice as self-defenders. This legally-armed firearms trainer seems he's trying pretty hard to de-escalate and escape, and that was a wise decision - in my opinion - that probably swayed the DA quite a bit.

Is it worth shooting him?

The debate probably is old as the hearth and many people have different viewpoints about the use of guns. In this particular case, the shooter guy seems disarmed and in some countries, it's not allowed to shoot him, even if you are attacked. The usage of guns is quite high in the United States while in most of the countries in Europe it's not allowed to bring guns with you, except for particular cases such as if you have a very good reason or your job includes the protection of needs and/or people.

Gun disarm techniques

Many Martial Arts trainers and masters teach how to disarm a gun. Is it correct to teach students those techniques? How many of these techniques are really useful in this kind of situation? Usually, the position of the attacker is very different if compared to the one used by the professions in the video. People that are used to managing guns don't point their gun in your face so you can easily disarm it. If you look closer at the end of the video, when the trainer shot the attacker, it brings the gun with his hand behind, not allowing any disarm technique.

Which is your position gun disarm techniques?
