I agree with the above post. Just like I tell my students during gun disarm techniques-I dont have to be faster than a bullet- just the asshole with the gun. Having a firearm and retaining it are two radically different things. Some people once the gun is removed-that is it.Kind of like a one trick pony. Even with a strong martial backround-one must maintain a certain level of cardiovascular conditioning to be optimal at the end goal- survive.
