Did This Guy Use Karate to Handle an Attacker with a Shotgun?

Do You know a Shotgun Defense?

Interesting video below, of a fellow taking a shotgun away from a mugger. But, I’ve got a few questions about it.

There are several outpoints that must be considered.

First, do security cameras have audio? I haven’t seen any, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t. Still, why would audio be necessary at this lonely location?

Second, does the cocking of the shotgun sound real? By that, I mean that it sounds like there is nothing being chambered. I haven’t cocked every shotgun there is, but it does make me think.


Loaded or not? Martial Artist of not? Hmmm?


Third, it looks awful easy. The bad guy doesn’t struggle. So the technique is either perfect, or the bad guy didn’t really want to shoot anybody, or…it’s fake.

Finally, why doesn’t the fellow being mugged just shoot the attacker in the butt?

Now, these are four good questions, and I wonder.

On one hand, the fellow being mugged is the coolest dude since ice cream was invented. Probably studied a variety of arts, and the technique might be tachi dori, or something out of Krav Maga, or whatever.

On the other hand, it is a marketing ploy.

I haven’t called the number on the screen at the end, and maybe I should. But I guess Ir eally want to believe that this is the goods, and that the fellow really is a class martial artist.

I’m sort of interested, so feel free to comment and let me know if you think the guy is a class martial artist or not.
