Last Saturday, I attended Krav Maga Philippines' Knife and Gun Threat Seminar in 360 Fitness Club in Makati . The trainers, Fred and Edmund, looked very intimidating and justifiably so, because Krav Maga is one of the most dangerous martial arts in the world. The seminar, though, was not about hurting others. In fact, the first thing they told us that escaping was the first priority and you should only bring harm only when needed. We were also oriented about the characteristics and parts of a gun so that we also know how what we're up against.
|Guess who are Edmund and Fred :p|
I sucked at knife and gun threat defense exercises. My reflexes were slow and I'm not well-coordinated. But it was useful just the same. I just need to practice doing the moves on my own. I liked the "zombie" activity the best. Other people would try to corner you and your task is to avoid them from doing so. It was tiring but saying "braiiiiinsss" while ganging up on one person was fun!
