ACT takes the mystery out of it. In the Gun Defense class, we teach only one gun disarming technique that can be used in any gun defense situation. This application limits the possibility of accidental discharge of the weapon that happens when the attackers’ hands are hit or struck while attempting to disarm. During the basic knife defense class, we teach a simple trap combined with striking that is taught during the basics class. The advanced knife class takes the basics skills and builds on them to include defense against the more probable “sewing machine” knife attack. ACT keeps it simple and effective. We want the student to understand that injuring the attacker quickly and disarming is extremely important, we don’t want this engagement to go on very long.
