Krav Maga

*smh*:

0:01 – Not even one second in and I see we’re already in for a whole bunch of robotic Israeli unloaded weapon horse stance bullshit. On and on with that until…

0:41 – *yawn* fake jostles while pushups are in progress.  That’s so 2014.  This jostler even threw in a few spanks.

1:48 – The *tshhhhhhh* *tshhhhh* sound effects are so on point.  I love it.

Am I the only one who feels like that unloaded gun + horse stance + robotic loading is all part of some elaborate joke I’m not in on?

1:53 – Maybe it’s good they don’t practice with one in the chamber if they are going to do bullshit like this.

2:19 – Whoa whoa whoa… gun to the head hey?  Yikes.  Cool training brAhs.

2:30 – Ok more gun to the head “training”.  WHOA and that one was loaded… damn.

2:39 – Annnnnnnd he loaded it and put it to that guy’s head.  This is getting more retarded with each passing second.

4:12 – We always see them with handguns doing that horse stance loading in videos, but for some reason I assumed they carried their rifles with one in the chamber.  I guess they don’t though LOL? *smh*

4:22 – Someone please explain to me what that costa-esque gun flip is about.  I especially don’t get it when they do it after double taps and aren’t even trying to create some inertia to eject the magazine quicker.

4:53 – OMG as if a loaded handgun to the head wasn’t bad enough.. they are doing loaded rifles to the spine now.  I’m done… done…

Idan-Abolnik-Krav-MagaIf you want to like Idan Abolnik’s facebook fanpage or say whats up, please do so.  Maybe if you’re lucky you can get training from him someday LOL.

I can’t wait to see some of the counter-trolling in the comments about how great these methods are.  Stupidity levels this high are extremely dangerous.

Thoughts?  Would train with?

This video takes itself pretty seriously (ya I suppose it is a serious topic), but is a good watch for sure:

Is that Krav Maga they are doing at the beginning in the boxing-style ring?  I was in Judo for a little while when I was younger, and I remember thinking all I wanted to do was to learn how to kick people across a room, and throw haddoukens, what did I get?  I got to roll around on the ground with stinky kids +/- a few years my age and practice holds, leg sweeps, and carefully planed over the shoulder throws.  So disappointing.  I literally thought I’d learn how to kill someone with my bare hands by the end of week one.  I was crushed when that didn’t happen.

6:12 – I always wonder how pulling back on force when training would actually effect your performance in real life.  What do studies show?  If you’re trying not to hurt the guys you’re training with you’d maybe default to that without really thinking about it in a life threatening situation?

6:44 – That scan tho.  No temple index!  2/10 would not operate with. :P

8:45 – It appears like he puts the loaded gun right against his palm *ahhhhhhhhhh*:

Possible-Gun-Against-Palm

Please watch it in 0.25x and assure me that’s the camera angle fooling me.  I want to believe you.  It’s pretty blurry, but looks like he possibly even had his finger inside the trigger guard at that point.

9:55 – Is standard practice when taking a gun off someone to always load it, and likely waste a round since normally people carry loaded guns?  Why would that Asian dude be sticking up someone with an empty gun?

Funker Tactical is a really awesome group of guys seemingly, who definitely have a lot of fun making their vids.  I think great for them… I watch most of their vids I’m really happy they have a massive audience, and hope they continue to be successful.  Funny enough they fired some shots at our Slovenian boys Polenar Tactical on Facebook last night.  Apparently they don’t have a sense of humor regarding Polenar poking fun at their bro Instructor Zero regarding some funny pics he staged, which Polenar I guess had an unwarranted (apparently) “opinion on”.  I love when people send me stuff like this because I just fire up the popcorn machine and watch the comments and back and forth.

Some heat from the last paragraph on the linked facebook post:

We believe the reason for the animosity against us (Funker Tactical) and IZ (Instructor Zero) is that the Polenar guys are firearms instructors themselves and they may believe the best way to the top is by stepping on others on the way up.

haha whaaaaaaaT?  Serious business.  I didn’t realize there was a “top” and a power struggle in YouTube firearms videos, much less any sort of competition at all between what Funker Tactical does and what Polenar Tactical does.  Not even taking into account that Polenar lives and opeates on the other side of the ocean.  I just hope this beef doesn’t end in someone taking a bullet on the Las Vegas strip, Tupac style next SHOT show.  Can’t we all just get along?

Thoughts?  Do you sprinkle any sort of seasoning on your popcorn when viewing internet drama?  What type of popper do you use?  Do you use butter, or are you onto that artisanal olive oil mist game like I am? (shoutouts to MISTO for the illest misters in the game right now)

Gat tip: Matt, Polenar

From our Van Halen Logo’d friends at Funker Tactical:

#2 – Blade at 45!  Blade at 45! :P

1:02 – Holy if that was a revolver and the attacker pulled the trigger, if the gun went off that would be a disaster for Ryan’s hand.

Every time I see one of these videos it’s like deja vu… I’ve probably watched 100+ disarm videos and they are all basically identical.

3:05 – “I’m not planning on using this (the handgun).  I don’t know this weapon.  It’s not mine, it’s his.”  <— Really?  You’re not going to use it just because it’s not your gun?  And claim you don’t “Know” it enough to use it?  I know milliseconds matter in situations like this, but if the attacker is still advancing maybe it would be a good idea next time you have a second or two to try and figure it out, rather than use it as a club continually to hit the guy.

Funker-Tactical-Handgun-Disarming4:58 – I’d say you’d have to be pretty damn confident pulling a maneuver like this, if you have a guy with a gun asking for your wallet.  Yea it would suck to give your wallet up… have to replace all your cards, license, and whatever money you had.  The chances of not being good enough at disarming him for the average person are pretty high… which I would imagine also raises the risk of a simple robbery turning into you and whoever you’re with laying on the ground bleeding.

Thoughts?

Taught by Israeli military and special ops shooting instructor Kfir Cohen:

Don’t even think about making fun of this stuff guys;  remember… “Americans Shoot, Israeli’s FIGHT“.  You’re not operator to understand the Israeli methods.

0:02 – Strong opening, with everyone pointing guns and pulling the trigger at each other.  Although generally condemned by Americans, Israelis love this stuff.  It was also featured on Tactical Butthurt Professional Israeli Krav Systems instructor Nir Maman’s video I posted about a while back.

0:09 – If you yell, the bullets go faster.  This is science, don’t refute my claims.

0:17 – Hold up, did he just fake-reload without taking a knee *smh* we might have an Israeli tactical imposter on our hands.

0:26 – Run down the road then a tactical robotic butthole clench “putting the brakes on” type move.  Straight out of the Israeli Operators Manual.

1:35 – Goes into medium sized horse ride / tactical poop stance

Nothing really notable happens after that point in the video.

If you haven’t done this… bro do you even operate?

Qualifications: Thick operator beards.

Buck Yeager talked about this in the past too, so I’m not surprised at the results.  Decent thing to know I suppose, even though most of you will probably not be in a hand to hand gun tussle with someone holding a loaded handgun.  Notice I said “most of YOU”… yea I operate operationally in operations so I do this kind of thing on the reg, it’s really not even a thing anymore.
