ASR/RAK Defense: Striking from Standing

One area often overlooked in programs is the practical use of striking from a standing position when getting hands on with an armed attacker. This potentially takes place in three ways: from Distance/Ambush, from Clinch, or pinned against a third leverage point.

Not saying there aren’t any, I just have not personally seen it highlighted much. People talk about using improvised weapons to hit BUT they rarely discuss the tactics involved and what the good guy is supposed to do next.

In this video we’re looking at a few concepts and considerations to keep in mind to utilize striking in a meaningful manner.
