The Types of weapons used And the equal response
This is for training security personnel
1) Guns/Assault rifles
Do not give your opponent the chance to take aim at you, once a warning is given, and he does not respond accordingly, take aim to shoot at his arms or legs to disable him but not at his body, this is the only way to protect yourselves, and if he is wearing a bullet proof vest, which means he is prepared, do not give him a chance to train his weapon at all.
2) Samurai sword/Fishing knifes
The above applies if your oponent is trained in handling the samurai sword, with a stroke, he can take out your head, never go within striking distance, the same goes to fishing knifes which not only can piece and cut but can also remove you stomach intestines, never give your opponent the chance to move into striking distance.
3) Kitchen Knifes/Chopping Knifes
If a kitchen knife is used, or one that is used for chopping, it is the least dangerous than the above, a kitchen knife normally has only one surface to cut, so it can never kill you, the same with a chopping knife, if it cannot strike a blow, it cannot hurt you, so you need to avoid direct contact with a chopping knife at all costs, bcos if it does, the cut will be very deep and could dismember your arms. It is very important to be able to identify the cutting edges, the number of sides of cutting and the damages that it will inflict on a person. Therefore if I carry a six inch ice pick is it a dangerous weapon? Yes. I can pick you to death with a correct stroke. What about a baseball bat or a mallet? Those who are trained in unarm combat could easily disarm those with a baton, it is therefore not considered a dangerous weapon.
If you can identify the weapon used, you can easily assess the situation,
and never let it get out of control, and decide on the appropriate response. If I have my way, all policeman must wear bullet proof vests and out of every two buddy on patrol, one must wear a body camera.
