When a Knife Attack is Unstoppable

In light of our upcoming Rich 'N Roberts knife defense workshop in Toronto, ON on July 14 & 15 (INFO HERE) I wanted to offer up a video on one of the most important topics we cover during our Knife Defense Workshops.  In our ongoing campaign to be completely honest in regards to knife defense "techniques" that do and do not work, Richard Dimitri and yours truly show the range at which point knife defense is virtually impossible!  Well virtually impossible if left to chance, luck, the planets being aligned.  FIrst, check out the video and I will offer some additional thoughts.   In this video, albeit a demo which makes a real attack much more difficult to defend against, we show how the hand is quicker than the e...

Do Not Fear The Stranger so Much in Self Defense

When we conduct our self defense seminars whether that be in high schools, privately, corporately or to a group of women, it is common for many questions to come up in regards to being attacked by the stranger lurking in an alley, on a path, or on the side of the road if your car breaks down when in fact people should look much closer to home, and most times in their own home.  Of course there are attacks committed by strangers, but the vast amount of time the attack will take place by someone known to the victim whether that be a husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend or acquaintance.  The statistics do vary, but regardless of where I have found them, they all seem to agree that you are more likely to be attacked by someone known.&...

My Thoughts On "What To Do If Attacked On A Run"

In this blog I would like to offer my thoughts on an article that was in a recent issue of Men's Health titled, "How to Stay Safe On a Run—Especially When a Killer Clown Is Chasing You"  They offer some tips on what to do if attacked while on a run and a number of their recommendations cause me to pause and question. Feel free to agree, disagree, or think I am nuts, but my years of teaching have taught me there are much better ways of responding to an attack while on a jog.  Now, the whole article is in the link above, but here is the section where they offer their advice.  I will offer my thoughts after.  According to Runner’s World—a brand owned by Men’s Health’s parent company, Rodale—here’s how you can stay safe on y...

Maybe I Am Crazy? :0)

When I watch the UFC I always say that one of the Top 3 traits I would want, would be the ability to "Take A Shot".  Often that single quality has allowed a fighter to stay in the fight until they were able to gain their composure and fight back, or to just survive the moment.  With much of our self defense training we get to condition ourselves with or without gear.  I am a fan of the Spartan Training Gear because it is impact reduction gear which means we still feel the shots, react realistically to them, and it allows for some conditioning while still doing it safely.  And when training without gear, it also happens time to time with more risk. What I would like to know is how many of you do this, or is it just me? &...
