am 64 years of age, but in excellent physical condition
and I love to walk. I especially like a small park about
five blocks from my home.
went there a few days ago to just relax from my business
and was accosted by two gang members who are notorious
in my city. I have practiced the techniques in Street
Self Defense and i remembered that Shihan Pace had said
anything can be a weapon and that a FAKED compliance can
I was standing was playground sand and the gang members
were standing close together. One had a butterfly knife
and demanded my wallet. I faked fear and compliance and
"accidentally" dropped my wallet into the sand. When my
hand came up it was full of fine sand instead of my wallet
and i threw it directly into their faces. While they were
trying to see again, the knife man blindly came at me
with a straight stab. I used the techniqes shown in the
videos and disarmed him as well as using 5 crotch blows
with my knee.
then saw the other gangster franticly trying to get a
9 mm pistol out of his waistband and knew i could not
afford to be gentle. I used a reverse knife hand on his
throat and he was too busy trying to breathe to do anything
else. In the meantime, the other gang member was trying
to get to his knife again even though in pain.
I used an arm bar as shown in the videos and then broke
his elbow with a forearm smash. They had angered me a
bit so i stood him up and proceeeded to just backhand
him several times and then use my knee in his crotch about
six more times.
I then proceeded to call 911 and when the police heard
the words "gun" and "knife" they arrived quickly to find
one gang member still trying to breathe and the other
passed out from pain.
they quit laughing about the fact that a gray haired "old
man" had put down a pair of armed 20ish gang members and
was sitting quietly in a swing and smoking his pipe, they
called for ambulances.
one hit in the throat had to have a breathing tube and
the other had to have his arm set and one testicle removed.
As soon as they recover they will be arrested on several
charges. Pace's techniques need but one word to describe
