All About Hand Gun Self Defense : Defend Against a Handgun to the Side of the Head


Tres Tew here; I’m an instructor at Yeshua’s
Ryu Martial Arts and on behalf of Expert Village, we are going to be going over handgun self
defense. Now you may encounter a situation where someone is holding their gun to the
side of your head. Your hands are up. You just raise your hands up in a sign of “okay,
I’m giving in.” But what you are really going for is control of this gun. So what we are
doing is we are moving out of the line of fire and using our hand to assist. From here,
we can either grab and strike into the throat and recap the gun away, or we can push up
with the tricep of our arm as we come in and trap the gun right here. From here, we can
roll back into a shoulder crank and we have the gun here. You can also pinky fire at maybe
another attacker here. So we are going to do that one more time. Pushing out of the
way and striking. As long as we’ve got control of the gun, that’s what we are going for.

  1. You need to control the weapon more then shown in this video, when turning inside along with the punch you could also kick your attacker in the balls. Good old shin kick following a cross to the face 🙂

  2. if i had someone at gun point i wouldnt let them put there hands up where they can reach the gun personally if i held a gun you wouldnt defend it cuz id stand atleast 6 feet away from you so you cant reach me without me being able to shott you 5 times first

    Helping someone by ling to them is not helping. These idiots have no experience at all. It clear from their videos they are just a couple of kids that spend too much time in their fantasy world ,about real combat that they think they live in a John Woo movie.
    They are teaching stupid tactics that don’t work and will get you killed.
