People FEAR weapons.

Facing someone who's armed, especially when you're not…

…is understandably something most of us dread.

That's because it's a life and death situation.

But a lot of people studying combatives, including a lot of instructors, are making a critical mistake:

They're forgetting that the person is the problem.

The fact is, realistic combatives teach you to go after the attacker, not his weapon.

Oh, and most disarms you've been taught?

They're nothing but “competing” with the attacker, and you DON'T want that!

In this week's podcast episode, Modern Combat & Survival's Jeff Anderson talks to combatives expert Tim Larkin of Target Focus Training to get the REAL DEAL when it comes to defeating weapons attacks.

The #1 Biggest Mistake People Make When Training To Defeat A Violent Attacker In A Real Street-Fight!

Jeff Anderson
Jeff Anderson, Editor

In the street, “win or lose” is actually “live or die”.

Too many people lose sight of that fact.

And you can't survive if you're focused on “defending” against your attacker… right?

So why do so many people make this mistake when training for “self-defense?”

I had a conversation about this with my friend and founder of Target Focus TrainingTim Larkin, and here are the lessons he shared with me…

The #1 Mistake People Make When Training To Defeat A Violent Attacker In A Real Street Fight!

The Biggest Street Fighting Mistake
Number One Street Fight Mistake

Tim Larkin

Forget “self-defense“!

“Offense” is what wins fights… plain and simple!

If you're focused on simply “defending,” then you're just prolonging the inevitable unless you can take over the offense and inflict that first real injury on your attacker.

In other words, until you launch a strike that causes a traumatic, uncontrollable response in your assailant, you're not truly “fighting to survive”.

The biggest mistake people make when it comes to defeating an attacker in a real street fight is that…

“Injury is the alpha and omega of violence; it’s where it starts and ends.”

Consider for a moment that you're breaking some gangbanger's nose after he got up in your face to threaten you…

His body's physical reaction is something he can't control.

His head instantly explodes with blinding light — his vision, breathing, movement, and even his thinking are all suddenly destroyed.

Your blow forces his body to contort against his will, and where he was once strong…

your attacker is now crippled and confused!

In the end it doesn’t matter what broke his nose:  a fist… a boot… the heel of a hand…or the edge of a doorframe.

All that matters is that his power and dreams of turning you into lunchmeat are shattered as you've rendered him blind and vulnerable.

It's now a simple thing to “injure” him again.

(And again!)

So how do you train for that outcome?

1. Always Work Toward Accuracy First

Most people you see in real street fights are swinging blindly at their attacker.

A wild strike to the head is not the same as a targeted strike to the nose.

Just as if you train with a handgun to get a one-shot stop instead of unloading an entire clip of “spray and pray” bullets, you want to focus your training on striking your target with extreme accuracy.

The more you train to strike accurately, the more accurate you'll be when it matters.

2: Focus On The Body's Most Vulnerable “Destruction Points”

The key to the scenario I just unfolded is in “where” you struck this gangbanger to cause an uncontrollable reaction.

There are several of these debilitating “destruction points” all over the body and they don't even require you to hit hard to take out a much bigger and stronger attacker.

Learning the vulnerable points of the human body, such as from Target Focus Training's videos, will make it possible for you to do this.

You need to start every attack with debilitating injury –– not with moves, techniques, stances or theory.

Violence begins and ends with ruined anatomy.

Any training that does not start there is useless for survival.

MCS Podcast #108: Integrating Armed & Unarmed Combatives (With Tim Larkin)

Target Focus Training Tim Larkin

Target Focus Training Tim Larkin

Are gun-owners a little “too confident” in their ability to use a firearm for personal defense?

No, I'm not talking about whether or not you can put a bunch of holes within 1 square in a paper target.

I'm talking about whether or not you're ignoring your “back-up plan” for when your gun may not be readily available in an attack.

Sadly, most firearm-focused protectors out there fail to take a more holistic approach to their defense plan.

So I asked my buddy, Tim Larkin, to share his insights on how to integrate combatives training AND firearms training in order to be better prepared for the reality of a violent attack.

Here’s The Simple Secret To How To Defeat A Sucker Punch

self defense knock out

jeff_anderson_no_bg_150x200[From The Editor]

I've been “sucker punched” to the head two times in my life.

Both times it was my fault because I either thought a confrontation was over (when it was really just starting) or I was too focused on my aggressor and not his buddy off to my right.

Yeah, yeah, I know… awareness shmareness!

It's nice to think you'll have that tactical radar on full blast everywhere you go, but here's the simple reality…

The criminal of today is more prone to cold-cocking you in an ambush than ever before (remember the “Knockout Game”?), so I caught up with my buddy, Tim Larkin of “Target Focus Training” and…

Here's The Simple Secret To How To Defeat A Sucker Punch

Knockout Game Sucker Punch Attack

I've been asked this question so many times, I've stopped counting…

… “What should I do if I get sucker-punched?”

Well… you get hit.

End of story.

Whether you get knocked out or not is mysteriously up to a combination of their targeting and your own ability to take a punch.

But make no mistake… there is no practical monkey ninja death move against a sucker punch – no more than you can dodge a bullet once it's left the barrel.

If they get it right, you're out.

BUT… if they screw it up and you find that you can think and move… ATTACK!

The One Word That Kills Your Shot Of Surviving Any Attack

The word “defense” is used in close quarters combat a little too much.

What do you envision when you hear it?

Most likely things like blockingcounteringducking and dodging… and all are simply seductive fantasies that evaporate into thin air when subjected to the heat of actual violence.

Your only choices in violence are when to attack and when to stop.

And that's it.

In fact, in my hand-to-hand combat system I don't even include one single block in our entire training.

Not one.

Your entire goal should be to injure your attacker at all costs.

Regardless of how it starts or where you find yourself, the first thing you must do when we realize it's on… is attack!

Don't be the “defender”… but instead, make your attacker defend against YOU by quickly and viciously turning his lights out.

If you do it right, it won't take more than a few brutally effective shots to his most vulnerable targets.

Quickly… confidently… effectively

How To Exploit Your Attacker's Weakest Points…
…And Crush Him!

The human body has a virtual buffet of hidden spots that – when attacked with even a small amount of force – can put any attacker on his knees begging for mamma.

When struck with a powerful blow, you could render him unconscious… or even kill him if the situation required it.

The secret is to first know the biological “road map” of how to destroy another man's body – even if he's a lot bigger and stronger than you – and then program yourself to identify his weak spots instinctively (yes, without even having to “think” about how to fight) and then use your best “weapon” to strike him quickly and efficiently.

This training will show you how to truly unlock your ability to win any street fight no matter how big and strong your attacker is.
