Re: Chasing down a pickpocketer

Id start thinking more seriously about a decent self-defence class its all very well "catching" the guy but what then?

Fitness give options and allows you to chase some1 - but you might want to put some thought into what happens at the end of that chase...

What if hes desperate/armed/high/got a buddy etcetc....

How does the law in your area view joe public chasing down people? Can you make citizens arrests? Or perhaps following him until the police arrive. Think about the logical conclusion to you ending up in a confrontation belting him unconscious and the police showing up....

Having said all that well done m8.
The live drill is violent, it's sudden and chaotic, it's over before you've even got started and you're never prepared for what happens....welcome to fighting - Mick Coup
