Its so great to see that this elderly man and his wife were not harmed in the incident this week in Ashburton. When a man came to their door wearing a hoodie and threatening them with a gun this week the 78 year old man tackled the offender and sent him on his way.
We often see victims in this type of invasion or attack trying to fight back and end up injured because they panic and don't know what to do.
In our Human Weapon Self Defense classes we prepare our students to calmly defend themselves against attack whether its a home invasion, domestic violence, bullying, or robbery situation.
When you train and you prepare mentally and physically to overcome an aggressor there is a better chance of being successful no matter your age, gender or physical shape.
