Female Clerk Defends Like a Boss (Video)

Female Clerk Defends Like a Boss (Video)

In self-defense, a bigger weapon is of no use to you unless you can use it smartly. In this video, a would-be robber with a handgun tries to hold up a liquor store,  manned by a woman who seemed barely phased by his attempt. She smartly utilizes her own defense and thwarts his attempt before it even starts. This video is very informative because the clerk uses some very quick-thinking, that we can all learn from, and John from Active Self-Protection breaks it down very well.

In this video, we see just how effective this sort of combo can be when […]

What we can Learn From a Failed Armed Robbery (CCTV)  

This CCTV footage is reportedly from Brazil and shows what appears to be an off-duty cop fighting off two “armed” robbers.  The video description says that the guns they had were fake, and this seems likely since they point their weapons but never fire them.  While the final outcome is that no innocent people are hurt, and the robber was stopped, there are lessons we can learn about what to do and what not to do from this video.  While watching, look for these things.   The officer is in the upper right-hand corner, with a woman who is probably […]

CCTV Attempted Armed Robbery (Video)

CCTV Attempted Armed Robbery (Video)

  This video is of an attempted armed robber at a gas pump.  “Attempted” because of the would-be victims was armed and put an end to the threat.  Take a look at the video and watch as this armed defender reacts perfectly to the threat of an armed attacker. The man in blue is the defender.  Watch him and take note of these actions: He raises his hands in compliance, or feigned compliance because there was already a gun pointed at him and he had no other choice. He turns his body slightly in order to conceal his draw and […]
