That's the one, yeah. I used to have several videos of it on my old PC, but I'm on a borrowed computer, and don't have access to any of my files,
Gun disarms are actually fairly easy, but you have to make the decision to attempt a disarm quickly, preferably in the split second when your opponent
is still bringing the business end of the firearm to bear on you. Distance also limits engagement, you would have to be insane, or very fast, to
attempt a disarm on an opponent more than a few steps away.
Of course, sometimes it's in your best interest to play it cool. I made a decision in Chicago once that cost me forty bucks, and saved me a lot of
pain. A guy pulled a little automatic on me as I was filling up my car at the gas station. He was about three feet away by the time I saw the gun,
so, close enough to attempt something, but he had the thing right against his hip, and he was half turned away from me, and he had a partner about
three yards behind me (didn't know if he was similarly armed) so I made a judgement call. I figured he would probably get a shot off, or his buddy
would, and I would probably take it in the stomach, and I was fairly sure I could finish him, and probably his partner too, but I really had no
interest in getting shot, so I gave up my wallet.
I still wonder to this day if I could have schooled them and taken the sweet little automatic as a trophy, but you know what? Better safe than sorry.
I'd rather lose forty dollars to a crackhead than get killed by one, I'd never live it down in the spirit realm.
Of course, every situation is different, which is why thinking is so important. You have to analyze the situation to figure out the right course of
action. It's when people stop thinking that they get hurt in fights, generally.
As far as the NK techniques, there was a video of their training methods floating around the net for a while, it made its way briefly onto ATS I
think. It could be all hype, trying to intimidate their enemy. Like I said, I don't know for sure.
Edit: I can, however, vouch for the usefullness of the IDF gun disarm. It does work in real life situations.
