The Israeli-Palestinian conflict reveals no end to the agony that prevails, and, offering a solution is beyond the scope of this article. Palestine was recognized as an Arab country before World War II, but, during this turmoil a massive increase in Jewish population took place. In 1948 the United Nations divided Palestine to include Israel as a state which resulted in the major tensions that exist today.
The Israeli’s developed a self-defensive program to resist enemy attacks which has proven to be highly successful for many years. Their techniques are recognized throughout the world and finally being used for airline security checks in the USA plus combat training and self-defense situations. Israeli security goes beyond using a Concealed Carry weapon for self-defense to include a hand-to-hand fighting technique called “Krav Maga”.
This method is described as an instinctive and logical approach to overcome all types of violence with simple defensive skills developed by veteran experts. People from over the world take this training including; men and women of all ages plus law enforcement and military people. One can become the “ultimate” in self-defense with Krav Maga but it takes; desire, stamina, extensive training and discipline. Training facilities are located across the US and may be in your area.
The ordinary guy may not choose to take this course, but, should give fore-thought to some of the basic tactics used in advanced defense training courses. You may know the main tactic used by an enemy is: “surprise”, but, we should also realize the villain picks the time, place and method of an assault. We can foil their attempts by circumventing these conditions.
It’s also helpful to deal in advance with the mindset required for defensive shooting in a public place and avoiding harm to bystanders. How do we pick out the “good guys” and “bad guys” and will you be mistaken for a bad guy. You may not take the above courses to become an “alpha dog”, however, give serious thought to the basic tactics noted; they may save your life. Keep on packin dude.
