How to Take a Gun Away from a Thug!

By: Al Case

I was engaged in teaching a martial arts class, and I had one student whose father liked to go to the bar next door and enjoy himself while his son was getting healthy and strong. After class one day, the father staggered in and pulled out a gun and pointed it at me, and he made the remark that karate isn't any good if a guy has a gun. I took the pistol from him, held it in my hand, looked at him, and grinned.
Yes, it is possible to take a gun away from somebody, even when they are pointing it directly at your face. I did it, and I will tell you exactly how I did it in this article. That said, and even considering what I am about to tell you in this article, I recommend giving your money to an attacker, not risking your face against volatile discharge.
The first and most important thing you must consider, when somebody points a gun at you, is which way his communication is going. Typically, a fellow steps steps out of a dark alley, is pointing a gun at you, and he says he will shoot. The intention of his communication is towards you.
Moving slowly so that he sees your total compliance, you put up your hands, and place them in a position that is best for what you are about to do. You should engage in a lot of intensive practice to know what position is best. It is crucially important, in this situation, that you relax your muscles utterly and entirely and make your mind icy calm.
Now, what you are waiting for is for the fellow to demand you give him your money. At this point the intent of the communication is away from you, and it is towards him. At this point he expects you to move towards him, an therefore he is not intending to shoot.
As I said, you must have muscles that are totally relaxed, and you must have an utterly calm mind. You are going to hit his wrist, and you must shift your head away from the direction the gun will move in and off the line of attack when you do so. Grab the barrel of the gun and twist it as you slap the inside of his wrist.
Be aware that the gun may go off when you do this, but the gun should have angled so the bullet will miss you. To make this work you must practice the technique, and you must learn how to be relaxed in one position in space, and then virtually instantaneously in another position in space, and then you can actually try different methods of controlling the gun and refining the technique.
Having said all the above, let me say that the technique won't work if the fellow is too far away, if he is not interested in getting your money, but rather kidnapping you for purposes of domination, or if you just read this article and never practiced it...a few thousand times, I also want to say that the reason I wrote this article is for purposes of enlightenment in dire situation, for training purposes, not to give you the idea that risking your life is more important than money. And, I want to let you know that when the fellow is caught and goes to trial, it is going to be a lot of fun to go point a little laughter in his face.
