Equilibrium
« on: April 02, 2006, 03:45:31 PM »

I know next to nothing about guns
so I hope this post doesn’t seem silly
quite some time ago I saw a movie called
Equilibrium, about an Orwellian future with
martial law enforced by officers skilled in a martial
discipline called "GunKata", the art was developed by using statistical analysis of human movement in gun battles at close
quarters to isolate what kind of movements
and tactics are most effective in reducing the chance of
you taking a bullet combined with stand up grappling and striking when both combatants have a gun. I thought this was a very intriguing idea and made for some very interesting and exciting move choreography
has anyone out there seen this movie?
I know real gunfights look nothing like what they do in this movie
but I think the idea they had for "GunKata" was very cool...

This more or less is like Hubud with a Gun.
Gun Kata really isnt a Kata at all its more trapping tied in with a gun.
They use trapping a great deal but with a pistol.

It was choreograph but it was a good film in terms of sci-fi action.

Frank Bram does Sumbrada with a Gun and is selling it. Kinda scary.......I dont know of its value
Its more fantasy and fun than reality.

I wondered myself, you know.  I mean, in a successful gun battle, there's really only so many places that someone can be standing, and so many courses of action to take.  There would of course have to be numerous gun katas, but in the movie, if you pay close attention, there are.  Just like the karate katas of old, I see no reason why a gun kata couldn't be developed to deal with the most likely situations to develop.  Of course, this assumes that the bad guys don't head for cover, as would be the smart thing to do.

All that aside, I own this movie, and I find it very entertaining, also a little thought provoking.  Kind of a combination of 1984/Farenheit 451, and a few others that I am not familiar with.

I also enjoyed it for what it was worth. It is underrated at best.

Well, there are limits everywhere, but the possibilities of what can happen in a gunfight seem endless.  Try checking out some of the premium firearms training facilities such as Thunder Ranch, GunSite, LFI, (Leathal Force Institute) and others.  Then look to the situational matches such as IDPA.  You might be surprised.  There is far more to tactical use a firearm other than how you stand, how you hold the gun and squeezing the trigger.  That's why there are so many firearms training places now.  Since shall issue CCW has expanded to 40 states now the demand is great enough to support a fair number of them.

It's too bad that so many of those folks think that a firearm is the only tool they need in their toolbox though.

That said I've never seen the movie but will attempt to find it.

Agreed.  I was only speaking theoretically.  If you had a computer to do all the analysis that is required, for however long, that sort of thing.  I'm just curious what would come up as the most common themes, or occurrences.

I sadly forget who told me this but...

"Combat is shooting from awkward positons."

Truer, truths of true truth based on the truth of truths. True.
I really worry about these posterboy, brainwashing poses everyone shoots in.
One SOB shoots at you near-to-close range and posterboy poses goes flat to hell, or you die looking stoic and range pretty.

...on another note...
Steve Krystek has a bit of gun kata, though he does not call it that, that takes one through a series of get up and down postions. Really helps you in search positions. Pretty interesting.

I like the close range shooting in the movie with all the hubud like trapping.

Here is Gun Kata Poses all done with the Program Poser.
I use it, it pretty enjoyable. Remember this is a movie and I would not advocate any of this as a functional technique.

It does look pretty stupid when its not being done live action.  It looks cool as hell in the movie, though.

Yeah the stills are B.S. but I was trying to give idea of poses. Honestly the live action is much better!
