    :) for Jang again. That's the right attitude.

    I started learning a martial art way too late in life, when the exercises and demos were a bit much for me to risk injury. And regret having to quit after about 2 years of diligent effort.

    Still, I think anyone who carries needs to also at least learn something about hand to hand stuff if only to be able to make space and time for running, or for the draw. Breaking a someone's finger (another set of small and vulnerable bones as the foot) can be pretty effective. Suggest folks look into "small circle"
    techniques.

    Hopyard,

    In my younger and more adventurous days I found myself involved in a multi person brawl inside of a club ('The Dome' in D.C.) and from behind a person grabbed me at the neck same as the OP described, only this dude was attempting to put me into a full nelson choke hold.

    I have no idea who he was or what his overall intent might have been though I suspect it wasn't to be joking around, and I didn't have my knife on me (I've been carrying knives for defense since age 8 when my mom suggested doing so for getting back and forth to school amongst the neighborhood) as they had security out front to hand scan people coming in.
    So I did and applied exactly this foot stomp as I describe above (which my mom taught me as a kid) and I jammed the heel edge of my boot down and DEEEEP into unknown persons foot top. Only I immediately repeated the same maneuver using my opposite foot this time catching dudes toes. I lost my balance as did he and we fell backward me on top of him. He hit the tile floor hard and further injured himself. He was immobilized at that point and I landed on top of him, unscathed.
    I got up and left Mr. Nelson there on the floor.

    End of story.
    Foot stomp works.

    I have a personal rule in that I always at the end of my day 1) make it home and 2) under my own power, and per the street and life survival rules laid down to me ages ago by my then iron strap tough mom...By any means effective and necessary.

    Sound like a bad joke coming from good intentions. I think these things happen, not saying it's right, but it's something we have to keep in mind. Glad it was just a joke and not something serious.

    I tell all my friends and relatives I carry. I also tell them and anyone else who will listen, it's a good idea to get a CWP for themselves.

    IMO; If we do not tout our own beliefs then we are hypocrites.

    It also shows respect for them and the law. If I carry and visit someone, I'm supposed to have there permission to carry on their property.

    People cannot afford to be playing these kind of jokes in today's world...this could catch up with the jokers in a hurry...could be bad for all!

    I wouldn't go that far. It was a bad joke, but not everyone thinks like we do...

    I've got as good of a sense of humor as the next person, but that is just not funny even if the vet thought it was a joke. I probably would have spun arounf and planted an elbow in his eye socket, or his throat depending on his height.
    I'd be looking for a new vet about now

    LOL! I was going to make a joke about "condition brown" too! Hopefully your vet will remember a lesson well-learned about pulling stupid pranks on people. Sheesh!

    Janq -- thanks for the foot-stomp info!

    +1 Biker... Anyone can be caught off guard. Situational Awareness only goes so far when in condition yellow, and no one can walk around in condition orange or red all the time.

    Just because you are caught off guard does not mean you are out of the fight. Your brain has to be your most formidable weapon. Your gun is just a tool, it is not some magical shield that wards off evil.

    You have to train to overcome surprise. Just thinking about what you plan on doing or running scenarios in your head is not enough to let you over come the adversary. You have to train and practice your moves and your counter attack.

    Everyone was lucky all the way around in that incident and thankfully so.

    Thanks for posting too. I think we all walked away with a little information from that report.

    +1 to Janq as well!

    Amen, a knife is better for close quaters anyway, I believe it takes less than a pound of pressure to break the skin, correct me if I'm wrong.
