  •  If the mugger already has a drop on you (0+ / 0-)

    meaning already has a live weapon pointed at you, your chances of bringing one to bear on him go way down.  Each situation has to be evaluated and judged according to the specifics as well as your ability.  For example, Krav Maga teaches disarmament techniques that are amongst the best in the world that could chance the balance of power.

    I also know of the video you speak and don't consider it to be a reliable piece.  For example, the cop who played shooter walked in an immediately targeted the student who also had no training.  That isn't realistic either.

    •  I'm reminded of Bruce Lee (0+ / 0-)

      All the kung fu in the world won't stop a bullet in real life.   Hand over your wallet is an easier way to make it out alive.
