Another training topic
« on: March 11, 2011, 07:58:34 AM »

I had sent a training video other day-here is what we did at the school last night.

We  had a new student who is going to the Blackwater school (new Name-?)-in N.C.
in a couple weeks- he asked to practise some scenarios where a group attacks him-this is what we did (all students did this)-we made 4 stations-first station-attacker has knife-second-pistol-third-club- -forth-unarmed----student approaches each station and attempts to over power as attacked   or take weapon-he has to move quickly to each station-we went just about 70 % power and discussed mistakes after each student completed rotation. basically at the knife station the thought process to overcome the knife is the thoughts from Hocks training. Pistol,club,and unarmed comes from Kav Maga
movements-(retzev-continuous combat motion)-

Hopefully Sat (if the weather is good) we go out in the alley and do drills outside in a close area with obstacles on ground)

Just some thoughts for various instructors here to try something different- WW

if you get to use the alley,or an inside stairwell of the gym or building you use for training,you must stress awareness and avoidance.

A scenario is a scene to play out where the students become actors in a way,with those being the attackers acting like attackers,cursing,threatening and producing weapons with threats.

No one would just walk into an alley so you must use someone to draw the supposed victim in.(recent  news had one and two women luring men into an alley for sexual favors and then they where set upon by the women's male accomplices.)
So someone draws the victim into the alley and you have your attackers hidden, as they would be in real life,and then they show themselves.

The numbers of attackers in the alley can vary from one  up to your four person attackers.(victim should not know who or how many attackers they will face)
The attackers approach,threaten,close the gap and attempt to,or do,encircle the victim.
The victim must decide when to act,whom to attack and then follow through with action.
You then evaluate the outcome,offer advice as a leader and then as a group,and run the same type scenario over and over for everyone and try to get them through several times  so they employ the evaluation you,and the group,gave them.

Also you may have one attacker not present himself during the threat,and he/she comes out and engages the victim at a point the victim is not expecting it.

This can also be done in stairwells,bathrooms,elevators ,where ever you can think of that would be realistic training ground.

Good Luck

WW,how did your Security Training go ?
