Taking On Someone With A Gun

When I was taking kung fu, we were instructed that in cases where an assailant had a gun, you had to close the distance fast if you were to have any hope at all of coming out of the situation alive. The video below reverses the problem and gives you the gun. Again, the opponent's goal is to close the distance as fast as possible to render your gun useless. While I did a bit of live fighting and plenty of weapons training, we never tried the gun scenarios at full speed. I find these videos actually frightening to watch. A guy with a knife, some athletic ability and total ruthlessness has the advantage over someone with a gun, provided the distance is not too great. That is really scary.
