I used the forearm strike (described as a sledgehammer) that I learned in class and hit somewhere around his neck. And, without a second thought I stomped on his leg as hard as I could. It crunched.
Not realizing what was happening, another customer asked if he had fallen and needed help?
My ASSAILANT told the man to call the cops. Store management and the police arrived and the man tried to claim I "attacked him!" The security tape showed otherwise and he was charged with assault and attempted kidnapping.
The Sheriff asked for my version of events. When I finished he asked how I had the presence of mind to save myself. I told him I had attended a TFT class and then briefly explained the class.
As you can see, TFT training is for real. You WILL remember what you are taught. Second: It is an innate sense of self-preservation if you will listen to it. No thinking involved.
When the cop got there, I gave him my gun and ID. He did not ask for it. But I did not want to risk him asking if I was armed and appearing to having been forthcoming.
He said, "Why didn’t you shoot him?" And I answered,"Because I didn’t need the gun."
What I remembered, like a voice in my ear... "Unless your gun is in your hand, aimed, you are NOT ready to use it. Thus, it's not your primary weapon."
I am eternally grateful and I literally owe you my life."
With heartfelt thanks,
Now, Here's Story #2... I would like you to listen to this second story because it deeply impacted me. It is a testament to why I have endorsed and feel so strongly about this self-protection system.
You must never let this happen to you or those you love.
The difference in the outcome of these two true stories is... Knowing What To Do When Seconds Matter.
...You see not long ago I read a book written by the man who created this program. His name is Tim Larkin. The title: “How To Survive the Most Critical 5 Seconds of Your Life.”
And, it’s the first book I’d seen that... finally... helped resolve the intellectual and moral struggle I’d been facing.
Listen to this short excerpt and I think you’ll begin to understand what I mean..
