In the chaos of an active shooter attack or similar situation we may find ourselves trapped in certain sections of a building or structure. At this point we might decide to establish a fight position but we may not be out of options yet. Another option for evading is going through the walls. In many cases the interior walls of newer construction building are made of sheetrock or like materials that are easily breached giving you the opportunity to advance to a new section of the floor and possibly evading the attacker.

Working a simple but effective shoulder mobility drill today. Regardless if you have had a shoulder injury in the past or not, this series is a great way to keep your upper body fluid and to maintain strength. Our focus throughout this exercise is to maintain contact with the wall from start to finish, making sure not to arch our back or extend our neck away from the wall in order to compensate for lack of mobility and strength in our shoulders. Focus in on opening your chest while maintaining contact with the wall with slow and steady arm movements.
This is just one of many mobility exercises we can do. Join now and get instant access to the rest of our extensive training library.
One of the most common ready positions utilized with a rifle is the "low ready" technique. This might be when rounding a corner or even when a Law Enforcement Officer is simply standing guard. The muzzle is pointed down in a safe direction until brought up and aimed at the threat. If we are not careful the attacker can pin the rifle with the muzzle down. As the attacker applies downward force on our rifle it makes it extremely hard to raise our rifle up to engage them with effective shots. Here is a counter attack we can utilize with the Gripknife when in this situation!
FSW Online Training members will be entered in a drawing for a GripKnife on Jan 1st.
When defending yourself against an attacker outside of a sport environment going to the ground can add many complications to the fight especially if there is more then one attacker. One of the self defense kick strikes we can practice is the NAUKA Hack Strike. Similar to a stomp kick, the Hack strike allows the you to stay standing and deliver a very powerful blow to the attacker with out committing yourself to the ground. Staying upright will also give you a better vantage point for other attackers joining into the scuffle and the ability to run away or create distance when you see the opportunity to do so.
