"Shooting in extreme close quarters requires a little different technique than we think about when we just think about putting holes in paper or even defending yourself from that beyond-two-arms-reach situation where you're gonna be able to use kinesthetic alignment to put the gun in the right place or maybe even using the sights on your firearm to control the rounds," Rob Pincus explains.

The duck-under-to-side-control technique involves facing an armed attacker — in this case, an attacker armed with a knife. Rob Pincus' natural reaction to the presentation of the knife is to first raise his hands, even though he himself is carrying a handgun. Rob Pincus closes the gap before the attacker can complete the knife attack, electing to intercept the knife hand and use his forearm to block the man's shoulder.

The attacker in this scenario then enters into the clinch and establishes an underhook of the attacker's arm on his gun side. When the man tries to attack or escape from the hold, Rob Pincus ducks under the attacker's left arm and moves to his back. From that position of relative safety, if the threat to his life still exists, Rob Pincus can draw his weapon and fire without interference.

The media website "Ekyooto Uganda" is reporting that a boy training as part of a karate group being sent out to support the country's ruling party in upcoming elections has died after being crushed by bricks placed atop his body. The group was giving a demonstration at a primary school in the Ugandan capital of Kampala when the unidentified team member was supposedly overwhelmed from the weight of bricks piled on his stomach by the group's leader, Charles Lwanga.
