Just as Bruce Lee said that to maintain any discipline, martial arts, fitness, etc.. you need to practice at least three times a week. Most of us just
like to pretend we have answers or are prepared for a terrorist situation. The truth is, who here is on the cutting edge of training and could
actually do anything? For that matter how many people in society could do anything but respond to the chaos?
What do we see in Iraq, MBG's blowing themselves up and then what happens? As soon as people come to help, boom! another bomb goes off. Were
talking pre-meditated, pre-planned, and tactically efficient. Were at war and will continue to be at war as long as we are in Iraq or anywhere a group
of hardcore Muslims don't want us to be. To think violence won't come to your step, is foolish, considering the times.
As my teacher once said, "There are those that think they can fight and those that can fight," he couldn't be more right. Smallpeeps what you were
talking about disarming an individual or relaxing an individual through body language is a great tactic and if you have ever studied
neuro-linguistics, it's a good tool to add to your belt. You'll find yourself using the tool often.
Here are some guidelines:
Sensibility_ Body Language_ Response
SBLR Training – To cause extensive awareness of personal sensibility for defense, situation control, protection, and/or stabilizing relationships.
Action is always dependent on the individual.
In order to utilize SBLR you need to engage in training with groups of people. You use scenario's which require vocal commands, body language, and
violence to control personalities. As you train with different people you become more efficient at using body language to draw out a conflict or bring
a situation to a head ( whether knife, gun, terrorist, hostage, eod, etc..) in order to control it. In essence you are always leading and in control.
Threat assessment increases which paralells survival factor.
I always ALWAYS carry a weapon. In order to be affective with a weapon you must train with it until it's an extension of you. I do admit I have been
slacking and am no where near as resilient. Age does that to you and is no excuse.
If you can spin and throw a blade 20 meters for a head shot, under movement, or while foward or side rolling and do the same with a pistol then
you're on the right track. If you can bull everytime from at ease to 50 meters - you're good. Back in the day just on knife training required three
hours of throwing rolling on hard wood floors against silhouettes. H2H combat always included a knife or gun.
Now besides the SBLR or any real situations what American citizen has time to learn this and where you gonna learn it from? Unless you're rich and
can employ ex SF to beat your arse all day you have to fend for yourself, which means - not gonna happen.
You're not affective if you don't.
