Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the horn, and the people be not warned, and the sword do come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

I really enjoy the body movement and flow of this artist! They pull you push. They push you pull. Light or hard! Read your opponents energy!

 *Using Your Environment*
Wherever you go, you have to watch out for life’s blind spots, dark areas and corners. This is not an easy thing to do as life becomes more complicated. These areas, contrary to what many people write about, cannot always be avoided either.
If you exit your home, your vehicle, your place of business/employment, you take a look around. It seems so simple, yet so many people just start chunk’in across the parking lot, sometimes weaving in and out of parked cars with careless abandon. They might be "looking" but are they thinking about what they are looking at? Their environment...
Look for people, obviously, but more than that, look for telltale signs of people. Shadows, look for the shadows of people, look for feet sticking out from around corners, a hand that has been carelessly not concealed by someone who wants to be concealed. Their mistake might mean seconds for you to be able to react. Cigarette smoke can clue you in as to the presence of people you cannot see.
Stripmalls and some other buildings, especially in cities offer you a great tactical tool. The use of the windows as mirrors. Depending on position, you can sometimes use them to look around corners on your side of the street by looking ahead on the other side of the street. Sometimes you can see what is going on quite a few feet behind you without having to turn around. The same thing holds true for shadows cast by streetlights or the headlights of vehicles passing.
Like a careful Driver who scans their mirrors every few seconds looking for an "out," you should be doing the same. Using not only your eyes, but your ears and other senses as well. It took more time to type this out than it would take to make a complete and steady scan of the area every few seconds. Being aware, even if it is only three seconds before an attack happens, will allow you to react better than the "Bad Guy" being right in your face instantly.
When it comes to real Self-defense, meaning, instantaneous response with natural weapons [unarmed combat] or other weapons, you have to practice drawing from whatever mode of carry you are utilizing. You have to be proficient. This makes no difference if your weapon is a handgun, fixed blade knife, folding knife, can of pepper spray or a telescoping baton. If you cannot get the weapon out from under concealment and produce it for use, it may as well be left at home in the nightstand.
A properly executed attack from the rear will leave you dead. Fortunately, most attackers do not wish to kill you outright from the beginning of the "engagement." If you’re a woman, they may want to rob you, or rob you and take you somewhere more secluded so they can rape you.
Predators will grab a woman and drag her to a waiting vehicle [vans are infamous for this sort of activity, avoid them like the plague in parking lots, etc. but do not become so fixed on them that you ignore every other vehicle-cross reference to weapon-fixation], empty office building, stairwell, hedges, a stand of trees, anywhere they can to work their evil with a greater degree of safety for them.
These are the things that you have to learn to shut down as fast as possible.
For men, the object is usually robbery and/or murder, the reason it happens is not important. The fact that it does and the mechanics of it are what we are interested in. This can be a single attacker face to face, coming up from behind, or multiple attackers who either present themselves for a "show of force," or hang back in case they are needed. These can also be the lookouts.
When you go around the corner of a building, swing wide, do not hug the contour of the building. Swinging wide from the corner will give you a few more feet to react, some distance to fade back or to do whatever is in your individual "battle plan."
When you are walking to your car, the same thing applies, do not walk so close to the car that someone can pop up right in your face. Walking to your own car, give it a wide swing so you can see what is between the cars before you get caught in the fatal funnel. When you are in the funnel, use the mirrors and glass on your car and surrounding cars to check things out.
I won’t re-tell stories that may or may not be "Urban Legends," but it seems to me that if an attacker does find an unlocked car, they might very well jump in it with the cover of darkness and wait to see who comes out to the car. Likewise, the possibility of an attacker being under a car for concealment seems to be crafty enough for these predators to utilize.
Make sure you look in the car! Be prepared to stomp any hand that might grab you. The "Urban Legends" that have been going around might actually be a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts. Because if the predators believe it is the "thing to do because others are doing it," they might very well adopt the legend that has been created.
Keep you head mobile and don’t look at the ground or the sky constantly, nor straight ahead, take it all in. Right, left, ground, straight ahead...repeat. Train yourself to do these things now when it does not count. That way, when it does count, it will be a habit.

Improvised Weapons - Grips and Holds

Most Martial Artists and Self Defence type people acknowledge that Improvised Weapons are a great, handy and convenient methodology of Self Protection and Self Defence.

Improvised weapons are everywhere and easily accessible. They are especially relevant in countries with stringent weapons laws. They are also an excellent equaliser.

Many attacks today are from armed assailants and the use of Improvised Weapons can level the playing field. Improvised Weapons may also make the difference between walking away unscathed or getting seriously injured or worse.


Grips and Holds

One area which hasn't been covered all that much on the subject is how to hold or grip various items and use them efficiently as a weapon. The use of an every day item as a Weapon is indeed Improvised.

There are an endless amount of items that can be picked up with the hands and used in what can be a sudden event that requires you to defend yourself, a friend or loved one. The nature of every day items and their various shapes and sizes requires improvisation when it comes to applying them as a weapon of self defence.

Three Primary Movements

One thing I would firstly like to mention is the way a weapon is used. There are three main movements in which to strike with an Improvised Weapon:

You can swing a weapon much like a bat or stick,
You can thrust a weapon like a knife or
You can stab much like a knife wielding maniac but with a blunt instrument.

This movement is using a hammer fist type of strike.

It is really up to the individual and their preferences as to how any Improvised Weapon is used.

Limit Conventional Thrusting

The only method I would advice against is the traditional thrusting movement as the weak point is the wrist and this can easily bend or give way. This may simply end up as a week strike or it may end up causing an injury to the wrist that prevents the continuing function of the joint with the Attack continuing unabated.



Thrusting in the manner as shown below can result in the giving away of the wrist joint.



I personally prefer hammer fist type movements that tend to be quite linear in nature rather than circular type movements as will be seen in the images below.

One or Two Hands?

One other thing to take into consideration is if the item is best used with one hand or two. Some Improvised Weapons can be used with either method. It is really up to the individual. It is hoped that at least the reader will pick up some every day items and handle them with the perspective of how they can be used as an Improvised Weapon and experiment with them.

Examples

Here are some examples of items and some grips, holds and applications:

A can of drink can be used in the grip shown below. From here it can be thrusted straight out. The can may be full, empty or even half full. It doesn't matter if fluid flies out the other end. It may help by going into the attackers eyes.



A pair of pliars may also be used in the grip shown below. The same linear thrusting movement as above can be used here. The grip is different though the movement is the same. Straight out and back.



Plastic drinking bottle. The grip here harnesses the shape of the bottle. Grip the narrower part of the neck so as to prevent the hand sliding down the bottle as it hits the target. Once again, it doesn't really matter how much fluid is in the bottle. It is better with at least a third of the bottle containing fluid as it adds more weight to the strike.



A mobile phone can be used as per the previous items. Point to mention here is that the thumb covers the rear so as to prevent the hand sliding over the phone as it hits the target.



A small torch or flashlight can be used as above. The main point with the torch here is that the hand grips the narrower part of the object so the larger head of the item prevents the hand sliding forward as it hits the target. For suitable torches such as Surefire's, the thumb can still operate the on/off function on the butt of the torch.






Keys and bottle opener. The bottle opener can be used in two ways.





One is in a swinging motion where the bottle opener is whipped around in a slashing motion where the keys are held tightly in the hand.



The other is where the keys and bottle opener are held tightly in the hand where the end of the bottle opener can be used in a hammer fist/thrusting movement.

A normal bottle opener can be used much like the small torch or flashlight. Again, note the thumb covering the rear to prevent the hand from sliding up the item as the target is struck.




It can be used opened as shown below. From here it can be used hammer fist style or in a jabbing/punching motion using the corkscrew. It is best not to use the bottle opener end on this model as the hinge it operates on is not very secure so it may close shut as it strikes a target causing injury to the operator.


A DVD case can be used with one hand thrusting straight out. This strike is actually surprising in its impact. This is a rather long range attacking move.



Or with two hands for establishing more control and projecting more power.



An Inbox may also be used to strike with the the more solid edge or as a shield. It is likely to break after one or two blows but is better than nothing. Corners will likely hurt an attacker quite a bit and be a bit stronger than an edge.



A collapsible clothesline can make a great longer range weapon. They are also quite light. This would be great for keeping people away and has some potential for striking using a straight out and back motion using both arms. It is gripped at the crossover point on the first step down from the top. The fingers are below the joint and the thumb is above the joint. If the hinges break, the clothesline will collapse down. Using the grip as described, the fingers and thumb will not be crushed or squeezed.



An office chair can be used as both a shield and to strike with. Blocking followed immediately by a thrusting movement is just one option.



A flexible item such as a bath towel can be used by pulling the hands apart. This item can be used to block and push an attacker. The tort section between the hands is quite rigid. The towel can also be wrapped around limbs immobilising and controlling them which is quite handy if your system or style practises these techniques.


A broom can be used in either an over hand or underhand grip depending on personal preferences. Either between the hands or the end can be used to block. The fluffy end is for long range striking.




Also, between the hands can be used for doing a push/thrust type of strike.

An umbrella is possibly the best Improvised Weapon of all. It is stiff and strong, long range and can be carried pretty much anywhere on the planet. It can be held in either grip much like the broom.







The umbrella shown above is known as the Unbreakable Umbrella that I recently purchased and I absolutely love it. It is light, well made, strong and has a metal tip which would be handy in a real self defence situation. I prefer umbrellas without the hook on the end but it is again, personal preference. You can check more of the umbrella (including video) out here.

Improvise!

For any everyday item it comes down to personal choice and preferences with a sprinkling of imagination and improvisation.

This list is by no means exhaustive and there are far too many possibilities to mention. I hope that this post simply highlights some options available and to think in a little more detail about how to actually hold and wield any Improvised Weapon you may need in the event that an attacker chooses you.

 Abir Warrior Arts

 Read the Hebrew Bible and you'll see amazing tales of the battles the God of Israel won for His people, the Israelites... 
  * *How did they actually fight in those battles?* If the Israelites won countless victories over many ancient nations - the 'Amaleqites, the Cana'anites, the Ammonites, the Moavites, the Babylonians - and if hundreds of Israelites regularly defeated tens of thousands of soldiers...  

  * *How did they overcome such overwhelming odds?* Historical records tell of the Judean armed resistance against the Greek and Roman armies, attesting that they fought valiantly in wars which lasted for many years... 
  * *How did they defeat the armies of world superpowers who had conquered the entire world?*
  * *What was the Israelites' secret to the art of war?*  
  * Were they simply untrained and lucky farmers? Or is it possible that they were skilled and seasoned warriors, masters of an ancient warrior art that has survived to this very day?
 Many people do not know that the Israelites possess a mighty warrior tradition that has been kept and developed over thousands of years...the very tradition which we teach and practice today:


 
History of Abir
Abir, as a fighting system of the people of Israel, began with the three patriarchs Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  Abraham was the son of Terah, the warlord of Nimrod (ruler of the kingdom of Babylon); he had a monotheistic revelation and left Babylon for the land of Cana'an. Abraham taught the fighting system he had learned from his father, Abir-Qesheth, to his son Isaac, who ... read more


About The Aluf Abir
The term "Aluf Abir" refers to the "grandmaster" of the Abir-Qesheth warrior tradition. Yehoshua Avner Sofer Ma'atuf-Doḥ, the current Aluf Abir, began training in the warrior arts at the age of three, under the instruction of his grandfather, the previous Aluf Abir. After the death of his grandfather, Sofer continued to train under the instruction of his father, the Abir Ro'yim. As a part of completing this training... read more

Abir's  flower symbolAbir is the combat system of the Judaic, Hebrew-Israelite nation. As one might expect from the children of Israel, Abir is a combat system which is inseparable from, and subordinate to, authentic Torah rulings concerning every action which is taken by its practitioners.  The system provides a deep, spiritual expression of faith and commitment to the God of Israel, His holy Torah, and to  the people of Israel as a nation living by its authentic laws. The Abir system is as effective as a form of physical combat, as it is as a spiritual discipline.  An Abir practitioner acquires useful fighting skills that provide solutions to a wide variety of defensive needs.  Even though many applications of Abir principles are learned at the beginning of a practitioner's studies, there is much more to explore within the curriculum of this vast system.  Should you choose to train in Abir for a lifetime, you are assured that you will never run out of new concepts and techniques to learn that will take you along a deeply rich path, step-by-step. Abir is also a very pleasant and rewarding activity that provides both emotional and physical benefits. Abir has a unique Torah based diagnostic/healing system.The system includes therapeutic use of diet, herbs, oils, extracts, compresses, massage and self induced change produced through special motivational motions and verbal fortification of ones  most positive connection with our inner most built in positive aspects . This system teaches the Abir practitioner to identify and ignore irrational self defeating negative thoughts.While it is not claimed that Abir will necessarily increase a practitioner's lifespan, it can certainly enhance the overall quality of his or her life. As an ancient Hebrew tradition bridging our past and our future, Abir is not just a grab-bag of striking, grappling, and acrobatic tricks.  Students of Abir experience prayer and Torah-study in each training session, although it is not imposed upon students to be religiously observant to any degree outside the walls of the Abir training hall. Ultimately, a practitioner of Abir must completely submit to the will of the God of Israel, embarking on a path of justice and righteousness that necessitates observance of His laws and instructions, the rules of life which transform a human being into a willing instrument of God.  It is necessary to celebrate the declared holy days - especially the Sabbath - in order to bring a practitioner of Abir into harmony with the divine order which God has established in His creation.  Likewise, practitioners of Abir musts carefully observe the dietary laws in order to achieve maximum physical and spiritual health, to avoid weakening their awareness of and connection to God. However, all practitioners are free to choose their own level of Torah-observance and whatever approach they feel is most appropriate for them; there is never any interference with students' personal choices.  One does not have to be 'religious' in order to be included in the Abir program.  Any Abir student who wishes to take on more Torah-study and observance of Jewish law is encouraged to do so gradually, at his or her own pace. The following are categories of training in Abir, covering the classical and essential elements of Abir Warrior Arts:
*Tribal Warrior Arts*
-  Bio-mechanical principles combined with calculation of timing, spatial/distance issues, variant speeds, the use and gradation of force, weight distribution, and preferred directions/angles.
- Emulating the characteristic movements and 'spirits' of the fighting animals who symbolically represent the attributes of specific tribes.

  * Snake = Dan
  * Lion = Judah

  * Deer = Naftali

  * Bull = Joseph

  * Two-headed cow = Ephraim

  * Donkey = Issachar

  * Wolf = Benjamin

  * Great Eagle = Levi (and our master Moses)

  * Monkey = The letter "Qof" (not a tribe per se, but simply a letter) 
*Qesheth Warrior Arts*
  * Qesheth is the Hebrew word for "bow" (as in "bow and arrow").
  * Qesheth also refers to arched, bent, or looped limbs, as well as an arch, an ellipse, or a physical power.
  * The Qesheth method refers to always striking with an arched limb in a looping, elliptical, or circular manner, and is employed using both the upper and lower limbs, striking with any surface on the limbs.
  * The Qesheth method is also applied in pushing, pressing, and locking joints, using either the arms or the legs. 
*
The Aleph-Beth Fighting System*

  *  Abir practitioners learn to assume the forms of the twenty-two Hebrew letters in all of their seven types of combat applications.
  *  The Aleph-Beth system includes several of the Hebrew fonts, which are applied both in armed and unarmed combat.
*"Forms" Training* (Tavniyoth)  **
*Preparatory Exercise* (Hakhanah)
*"Strengthening"* (Ḥithhazquth)
  * Practitioners empower their spirit with Torah-study, faith, and prayer.
  * Abir practitioners also build a powerful, yet fluid, physical vessel for moving and directing energy in accordance with God's will.
  * Abir applied emotional/motion/motivational healing arts.
*"Connection"-Building* (Ḥibbur)
Ḥibbur means "connection" and refers to becoming acquainted with the God of Israel, the Torah of Israel, and the land of Israel, and also includes becoming connected with our ancestors through all of the various divisions of the Abir program:1. Visiting the tribal regions of the land of Israel and the battlegrounds where we fought as a nation at war over our long history.2. Learning how to make weapons as our ancestors did.3. Becoming a master of endangered Israelite ritual skills:* Making traditional Israelite clothing* Tying fringes (tsitsith) on shawls (tallith) and other four-cornered garments* Slaughtering animals according to Jewish law (sheḥitah)* Circumcision (milah)* Scribal arts (safruth), especially using the reed quill (qolmos)* Preparing both split (qelaf) and un-split (gewil) hides for scribal use* Preparing special ink (diyoh) for scribal use* Building ritual baths (miqwaoth)4. Learning time-honored Israelite agricultural skills:* Farming and growing food * Saddle-making* Horsemanship* Animal husbandry5. Taking the time to become familiar with the "four corners" of the land of Israel, paying special attention to deserts, forests, and valleys.6. Studying the people of Israel using scientific and historical methodologies and resources.7. Meeting with Abir practitioners from around the world and establishing fellowship among the children of Israel.8. Conducting outreach to inform those uninformed about Abir through lectures, speaking engagements, seminars, and demonstrations for groups and institutions.

Darn it I've been looking for hours. Does anyone have a vid with Abir vs. something else, or even actually an abir vs. abir fight?
I can't find, nor do I know much about this art. I do find it interesting though, I like how it's based around Torah and the tribes of Israel.
