Go Home Safe!

I had a great time delivery this presentation to the very fine group of people at the TCHA Convention. Most of the folks there were CHL Instructors and it is safe to say the presentation was very well received.

So if you are interested in the full story of how we do this in our Austin Combatives & Self-Defense group please take a look.

You are welcome to use or share it.

It was also my great pleasure to meet our forum host, Charles Cotton.
A terrific piece of work, THANK YOU for sharing it, HERB M!

Re: Do you practice a phrase to yell if you draw on a BG?

Getting past all the macho talk and the bar humor, the CHL needs to give this some serious thought. If it is a direct imminent threat in close proximity, there may not be time to say anything. Should it appear at a distance, before it escalates into a threat to your life, and you have a chance to command with confidence that you are not someone to mess with, you may win the battle without firing a shot. If it occurs in a public area, you can draw the attention of witnesses as the victim by shouting, "Stop, leave me alone," or such to indicate you are not the aggressor. Remember it is the jury you may have to convince. A hungry prosecutor could have a field day with some of the possible quotes that have appeared in this thread, and the responders may have inadvertently preprogrammed themselves to say during the adrenalin rush. Both Wenger and Mann suggest thinking about scenarios and how you would act under certain circumstances. The "what if" game can produce well thought out plans, rehearsed many times in your head or on the range, that will give you the ability to make the BG fight on your terms rather than simply reacting to him. The plans should include the commands you would use to take control of the situation and thinking them through may keep you from saying the wrong thing that may come back and haunt you, if you are involved in a shooting.
