The best weapon is ...


The best means of self-defense is your own body, once you attain a high level of training. You will always have it at your disposal, and no law can prevent you from acquiring this skill. Those around you won't even realize that you are armed. There's no need to search your pockets or bags to find it. You won't have concerns about causing harm to yourself, and others cannot take it and use it against you. All of these benefits can be achieved through Raptor Krav Maga.

Islamic terrorism targets children By George Mimmis


Three children among five in hospital after Dublin stabbing

The safety of children is always a priority and the thought of possible terrorist attacks can be worrying. Schools usually have security systems and programs in place to manage emergencies. Some of the measures that can be taken to improve security in schools include: Training and Drills: Train students and staff on the proper response to emergencies and conduct regular safety drills. Cooperation with the authorities: Working with local safety authorities to develop crisis response plans. 

Technology Systems: Installation of technological systems such as security cameras and electronic surveillance systems. Increase guarding and surveillance personnel at entry and exit points. Circulation Enhancement: Implement secure entry and exit procedures for students. It is important to discuss with your children's school the steps taken to increase safety and to actively participate in any safety promotion activities in the community.

Fight Multiple Attackers And survive! By George Mimmis


You must constantly move throughout the aggressive group. With your hands up so you can parry any blows and you will be a more difficult moving target to hit and you may make one or more of the attackers to strike one of their own. Furthermore, continuous movement will get you closer to one of your chosen exits. Make Your Strikes Count! You’ll be in motion, so you can’t fight like a boxer! Eyes, throats, ears, genitals, floating ribs, are your targets. 

During a fight with multiple attackers the ground is not a place you want to be. Once taken to the ground you will be at the mercy of numerous kicks punches or any weapons in hand by the assailants as well the rough bone-breaking ground. So there is not place for grappling martial arts. Movement is important. If your arm, shirt or entire midsection is captured and held by a "bad guy" your momentum ends. You will allow others to strike you much easier and most likely they will take you down and that is going to be a very unpleasant ending for you!

Situational awareness by George Mimmis

Situational awareness is knowing what is going on around us. It involves drawing a kind of mental map that helps us understand where we are, what surrounds us and what are the challenges or dangers that lie ahead. This ability allows us to see clearly what is happening and buy us time to develop an effective coping plan.

Drinking and fighting.

Killer knockouts in street and bar fights.

Ways to avoid a bar fight:

1. Stay aware: 

The most effective way to avoid a bar fight is by avoiding the possibility altogether. This requires situational awareness.

2. Keep your cool. 

Sometimes you cannot anticipate an aggressive environment from developing. If someone gets in your face, resist the temptation to push back in any way. Do not exchange insults or any physical aggression. Keep a safe distance from the aggressor and be ready to defend your self if attacks you. Never turn your back.

3. Inform security:

When all else fails, talk to security about the instigator. If there is not a security guard, find a bouncer or even the bartender. Bar staff do not want fights and will do what it takes to kick people like this out.

Dangerous gun disarming techniques . Part 9 - By George Mimmis


You must clear and control the muzzle when doing a gun disarm. You must clear it off of yourself and  not direct it towards another innocent person. You must have control of that gun so they can’t pull it back or just randomly fire and hit other people. That means wrapping your hand and fingers securely around the slide. No fingers in front of the muzzle!
