    Video Overview:
    The moment people think you are the most dangerous man in the room, is the moment you become a little less dangerous. It is not about simply being able to hit your target, it is about never become a target yourself. Here in lies the mindset difference between a shooter and a tactician. Warrior Poets – train hard, train smart.

    This Cop was Shot in the Face - Interviewing Jared Reston
    John Lovell



    Published on Mar 12, 2017
    Shot in Face & Lives to Tell About it - Interview with Super Cop Jared Reston

    Police Officer Jared Reston was responding to a robbery in Jacksonville, FL. When the suspect fled, Jared pursued on foot. When his taser failed to deploy, Jared grabbed the fleeing criminal who in a flash produced a .45 cal Glock and shot him in the face. The next thing Jared knew, he was on the ground with the man standing over him shooting him repeatedly. He was shot 7 times, but still was able to fight through and kill the man resisting arrest.

    Jared Reston's example is a message to law enforcement officers, federal agents, soldiers, and civilians, to never quit. It would have been only too easy to have quit under the fear and horror of the shooting, but Jared angrily rose to the occasion and won the gunfight. Never quit. Win. Improvise. Conquer your fear. Train regularly.

    In this video, super cop Jared Reston tells us his story about a robber shooting him multiple times while attempting an arrest. Jared also goes on to give us advise on how to train on shoe-string police department budgets, reminds us about the responsibility we all have to work out, train combatives, shoot regularly on the range, and attend training classes. Finally, Jared gives us tips to help 'flip your switch' so we can have good mindset that will allow us to prevail in violent encounters.

    Defense against an Abduction Attempt | Self Defense Moves You SHOULD Know
    Fight SCIENCE



    Published on May 27, 2016
    2 Self defense moves that may make a difference if someone tries to lead you away to a secluded spot in order to attack you.

    Let’s say that you are checking your mobile phone when someone suddenly grabs hold of your arms to drag you around the corner. How do you defend yourself? What are the best self defense moves or techniques for that moment of time? If you are a woman what would you do?

    Well we discuss the simplest things you can do that should buy you some time to raise the alarm or break away for your own safety. You should also read our blog article on the subject at: http://www.londonwingchun.co.uk/3-sel...

    In this week’s video we look at the first measures you should take to stop someone controlling your body in order to drag you away. Here are some ideal techniques for woman and children alike.

    Most women believe that the best self defense moves are to kick the bad guy in the groin or gouge their fingers in his eyes. The sad truth is that this would not work against a guy bigger than you intending to harm you. So forget kneeing him in the groin, you will probably fall over and end up on the ground with him on top of you.

    These simple self defence techniques could make all the difference when fighting someone stronger than you. How to defend yourself against an abduction attempt requires quick thinking and some basic self defence technique to break away.
    The first half of our video we look at how to hand fight to prevent the bad guy getting hold of your arms. In the second half we look at the simple concept of making yourself heavy so you don’t get carried away.

    We have lots more videos on how to fight with Wing Chun. Please visit our channel. Better yet feel free to leave a comment or a suggestion of what you would like us to film for you. It does not have to be about Wing Chun it can be about any subject related to fighting, how to fight, Wing Chun techniques, or even Wing Chun vs other styles of martial arts. We are happy to pass on our knowledge and experience free of charge.

    A dog attack is no joke, and though we don’t see too many of them on video at Active Self Protection, this one definitely showcases some of the challenges you might face if attacked by a dog. This is scary, but it’s also how fast real-life defensive encounters happen!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classifi...

    Classified information is a categorization applied to information that a government claims is sensitive information. Access is restricted by law or regulation to particular groups of persons. A formal security clearance is often required to handle classified documents or access classified data. The clearance process requires a satisfactory background investigation. There are typically several levels (classes) of sensitivity, with differing clearance requirements. This sort of hierarchical system of secrecy is used by virtually every national government. The act of assigning the level of sensitivity to data is called data classification. Although the root sense of the word "classified" is simply synonymous with "categorized", it has developed a sense synonymous with "censored" in the context of classified information.

    A distinction could be made between formal security classification and privacy markings such as "Commercial in confidence".

    Some corporations and non-government organizations also assign sensitive information to multiple levels of protection, either from a desire to protect trade secrets, or because of laws and regulations governing various matters such as personal privacy, sealed legal proceedings and the timing of financial information releases...

    Government classification

    The purpose of classification is to protect information from being used to damage or endanger national security. Classification formalises what constitutes a "state secret" and accords different levels of protection based on the expected damage the information might cause in the wrong hands.

    However, classified information is frequently ""leaked" to reporters by officials for political purposes. Several US presidents have leaked sensitive information to get their point across to the public.

    Classification levels

    Although the classification systems vary from country to country, most have levels corresponding to the following British definitions (from the highest level to lowest)

    Top Secret (TS)

    The highest level of classification of material on a national level. Such material would cause "exceptionally grave damage" to national security if made publicly available.

    Secret

    Such material would cause "serious damage" to national security if it were publicly available.

    Confidential

    Such material would cause "damage" or be "prejudicial" to national security if publicly available.

    Restricted

    Such material would cause "undesirable effects" if publicly available. Some countries do not have such a classification.

    Unclassified

    Technically not a classification level, but is used for government documents that do not have a classification listed above. Such documents can sometimes be viewed by those without security clearance.

    There are a plethora of pseudo-classifications under this category. Please see the articles on Sensitive but unclassified and Controlled Unclassified Information for more information. Some government prosecutors have retro-actively changed unclassified information into classified information after charging someone with a crime; see the Thomas Andrews Drake case for example.

    Clearance

    Depending on the level of classification there are different rules controlling the level of clearance needed to view such information, and how it must be stored, transmitted, and destroyed. Additionally, access is restricted on a "need to know" basis. Simply possessing a clearance does not automatically authorize the individual to view all material classified at that level or below that level. The individual must present a legitimate "need to know" in addition to the proper level of clearance.

    Mental Conditioning For Combat by Col Jeff Cooper SURVIVAL MINDSET
    Mitch Snider



    Published on Sep 13, 2014
    THE Best Training Video I have seen in 33 years of law enforcement. The late Col Jeff Cooper giving a lecture on mental awareness. Forgive the quality as it is an iSight camera video of a TV screen from a copy of a copy of a 35 year old VHS tape that I have treasured for decades. But it is the content that is amazing and life changing. Others in later years have tried to add colors, such as Black for freezing up, but the original White covers that as mentally unable to respond and is still the simplest and best. 28 minutes that can save your life.

    BOB STASCH - Interview With A Chicago PD Veteran Of 14 Gunfights
    MrMikesMondoVideo



    Published on Sep 5, 2013
    Bob Stash has been with the Chicago PD since 1981, and he has been in 14 gunfights.

    When he began with the Chicago PD, qualifications were at 7, 15, and 25 yards, and mostly bullseye. A two handed Isosceles or Weaver stance was used. And there was no time pressure or combat shooting.

    He is a firm believer in carrying a back up. But he has had to draw one only a couple of times, and he has not used one in a shootout.

    In his first shooting, he and his partner each hit a perp multiple times. His initial shot was at about 12 feet, and his last two were at about 6 feet. His last shot blew out the perp's knee which finally brought him down. The perp later died from the multiple wounds. After that shooting, Bob and his partner trained to make head shots to better assure a quicker stop.

    He practices shooting at combat distances [out to 20 - 25 feet], and tries to shoot exclusively with one hand to learn to control the weapon.

    In a gunfight, your off hand will be occupied doing something like pushing, opening a door, using the radio, etc..

    He also said that standard range shooting positions are never acquired in combat. As to a combat crouch, he found himself almost sitting on his butt at times to get low, or behind something.

    He is not a big fan of aimed fire, nor is he a precision shooter.

    His shooting is instinctive shooting [like Point Shooting].

    What you do, is point your finger at the target with your finger along the slide of the pistol.

    When the top of the gun is at eye level, and the eye, front sight or muzzle, and the target are in line, you will hit what you are aiming at.

    He is a big fan of 6 inch paper plates. If he can hit them with regularity, he is certain that he can probably do that at combat distances.

    In his second shooting, he and his partner were confronted by three perps. They both shot at and hit the closest of the three in the head. The other two perps took off, and were captured later.

    The maximum gunfight shooting distance was maybe 20 to 25 feet. Most were under 12 feet.

    Only two gunfights occurred at distance [30 - 40 feet]. In those cases suppressive fire, not aimed fire was used.

    He also has had to reload only 3 times. In those situations, suppressive fire was used.

    In the 14 shootings, only two or three times was a two handed grip used.

    He shoots about 300 rounds per month.

    He says that gunfight experience gives you knowledge of what can happen, but they are never easy. When he shoots, he shoots to live.

    It is not easy to fire a gun at another human being. But just like a soldier in combat, first of all, it's your duty, to do that - if those in charge did not want you to do it, they wouldn't have issued you a gun in the first place, or had you carry it.

    He has shot 9 people. Five of them died.

    Most perps are bad sorts, who if not stopped, would probably hurt/kill others.

    Only one gunfight was a one shot stop event. The distance in that situation was about 4 - 5 inches.

    His experiences are in line with the findings of the NYPD's SOP 9 study of thousands of police combat cases.

    Here is a link to a digest of the study and its results - http://www.pointshooting.com/1asop9.htm
