next show:  September 5th @ The Club
Evasive Driving
This was a class on one method of slowing down and stopping an
assailant’s vehicle while both vehicles are still in motion.  It is a very
dangerous exercise but, like most of these exercises, it was a lot of
fun.  

The care featured in these pictures illustrate the result of a car having
its back right side repeatedly rammed.  A rough estimate would be
about 90 times for that exercise.  We use old cars with tougher bodies
because they last throughout the entire exercise… Sometimes.  Of
course some of the exercises we train on will destroy cars after only a
few runs.  

On this day, instead of being in the passenger side of the student
vehicle instructing soldiers on how to properly execute the steps in the
exercise, I was in the "Target Car".  It is always a lot of fun to drive a
car that gets smashed into repeatedly for an entire day.  It is like being
a kid again and not getting sent to your room for wrecking the car...
Over... And over... And over again.  I recommend everyone try it some
day.  (Only under the close supervision of a certified instructor in a
place that is authorized to hold this type of training.)  

Above all else: PLEASE ALWAYS BE SAFE IN EVERYTHING YOU
DO!!!  
-   Don’t take chances because you might not get a second one to do
things better next time.  

Thank you and have a wonderful day.  

SAFETY FIRST!    ALWAYS!
 NO EXCEPTIONS!
