we were on a video conference with our colleagues in Japan whenever we were notified that there's been a civil unrest situation mass riots violence in something that in the city so we're gonna have to actually try to evacuate as soon as possible all the roads are closed down so we're gonna have to try.
To move out on foot so we need to go get our stuff and I start moving out just go ahead and change the clothes so I'm not wearing a suit around town it's always good to have a change of clothes it's always good to have a get home bag in your vehicle something that start with a lot of goodies what I've got is just an average.
Get home bag nothing spectacular with me for this scenario or running just the basic the essentials and hopefully it'll help you with yours so basically I'm just trying to avoid you know the main streets as much as possible walk through as many you know smaller alleys and walkways as I can I got my kid with me you know this is.
Basing my life support so I can't lose it I got to make sure that I can maintain that but basically I don't want to be you know panicking or anything like that yet I don't want to you know cause any anyone to you know look at me or thinking anything about me just kind of wanted to suppose you through like you know gray man baseline movement type.
Stuff you know if I have to run that I will to avoid you know any kind of problems but right now I just want to kind of blend in while I'm walking a good item for your urban survival kit is a silk Kottke it's something that you can use to you know get water from industrial faucets you know in a situation where I'm having to you know.
Get home from an urban scenario I may need to fill up my water bottle and this key will help me do that and I have some water it's getting late now in the afternoon it's getting dark around 5:30 so I don't have much time before nightfall I hadn't eaten I've gotten water have you as you've seen but because this bags.
In my vehicle I could just keep these emergency food rations because they can still be stored in high heat low temperature stuff like that they're not the best cattle or wasps but they store very well have a long shelf life and I can eat them on the move without cooking so this is what I'm gonna be eating now it's essentially like a bar like a.
Cookie and I can eat this on the move and I really need a little for shelter I hadn't been able to move out the city tonight because it's been so so much chaos and violence is going rolling around here that hadn't able to get out so I'm gonna have to really find a good hot spot tonight so it's gotten dark now I've been trying to navigate around a.
Lot of the riots and uh you know the violence and looting us and looting that's going on so I'm trying to maneuver around so we have to take a lot of alleys that I don't really know and I don't really have maps I'm trying to use my compass to keep me on a cardinal kind of direction because I know what direction I need to go so I'm just.
Trying to move around you have to be careful moving on Main streets you know you can be seen I'm kind of moving through these back alleys so nobody can really see me it's kind of dark and try to stay away now you do got to be careful because a lot of you know homeless people a lot of gangs and stuff we'll hang out set up shop drug dealers.
And back alleys criminal opportunists and they may try to you know take what I have because I'm you know in their territory so I got to be real careful and be prepared and keep my situation I'm wearing a something really keep around make sure nobody's gonna get to jump on me coming out of these corners.
I would never advocate you know I would always advocate giving up your property first you know but in a grid down scenario or this is all I have to survive I may go ahead and take the chance to pin on the situation on this technique that I'm about to demonstrate and teaches actual Marine Corps martial art technique for pistol disarmament.
From the front or counter to a pistol from the front and you know it's something that you need to do quick it's something you need to practice on and obviously you need to use don't don't use a real pistol so for this technique somebody comes up with a single arm draw you know they need to be in close proximity now the thing is people use.
Pistols for fear so they get up on you and touch you with it if somebody's standing back they may shoot you somebody out close is probably not going to shoot you they're just trying to intimidate you with the weapon so they come up with your pistol single armed to you you need to get close enough to it and what you're gonna do is you're gonna.
Raise your hands up and a passive aggressive hey don't kill me you know this way you got your hands up and then you're going to move your body away get the weapon offline so it's all off your body so you're just going to twist grabbing the wrist and now from here I'm going to c-clamp the weapon right here in the middle of the weapon then I'm.
Gonna turn and snatch away and then I can do whatever I need to do so there's no possible way I'm holding him here so it can't fight and there's no possible way a human can hold that weapon if I twist it away if I get that c-clamp I got the more force to it and you can always rip a weapon away for someone like that and worst case scenario if.
He's got his finger on the trigger he shoots himself you know whenever I'm taking the weapon from him so that's that technique it can be done I'll show it demonstrate again so passive aggressive get your hands up get your buddy off line twist your body come back then I can do it if I need to do let's talk about you know now that I've gotten.
An encounter I've got a weapon now so I you know can defend myself much better the what I need to look for now too dark for me to keep moving because I may keep running and things like that people trying to take my stuff or Robert kill me so what I need to look for is a hot spot now I'm in the middle of the city usually you wanna look for a safe.
House the safe house would be a bug-out location or spicy bar pre-prepared you can do a shelter a shelter is something that's going to keep and protect me from the elements and killing me you know like you know hypothermia stuff like that getting wet right now the weather is fine it's a little cool so all I really need tonight is a hot spot.
Somewhere I can hide keep you know from being seen and stuff like that and somewhere I could easily guard myself so what I thought about I'm gonna keep looking around but I could access I seeing a ladder up here I could access the roof one of these buildings I'd be a good hotspot it gives me a plate a way to look at all the alleys and see what's.
Going on and I can kind of you know it's hard for somebody to get to hear somebody trying to get to me so that's a perfect hotspot and that may be what I do tonight or I may be getting one of these trash cans around here sometimes the hot spot is the most dirtiest thing that you see because nobody else wants to go in there they don't expect you to.
Be there but because the grid is down it just went down so nobody's gonna be looking at trash cans yet now weeks go by with the grid beam down they may start looking at trash cans to try to find food so right now a trash can would be a good place to go because it's dirty and I was gonna look for me there but it could be a bad place in a few weeks.
Circling back on safehouse shelter and hot spot I don't I'm nowhere near my safe house I don't really need a shelter because you know it's not raining it's not really that cold I don't need a fire anything like that so all I really need right now is a hot spot I'm still in the city still danger still mass looting violence all that kind of thing so I.
Need to you know kind of just get a hotspot stay hidden and kind of defend myself I won't get much sleep tonight but I found this old building in an alley and I got my pistol now from the guy that tried to rob me so I'm just gonna hide out behind this building in the shadows make sure I'm in the shadows and this is in the corner so there's.
Only one way to access this so I will know you come this way I put all kinds of debris and trash and stuff in front of me so they're gonna step on that make noise you know chip bags and trash there step on that make noise alert me so then I'll know so I'm going to go ahead and get my hot spot and I'll see you guys in the morning.
