Have you ever been punched hard in the nose? I have, and trust me, it hurts. You want to avoid that at all costs.

Fortunately, our close-quarters combat (and street fighting) expert, former Green Beret Jim “Smokey” West, will show you several ways to avoid that fate.  Acting as his attacker today is former Green Beret Jack Murphy.

After Murphy is briefed on West’s brand of combatives, they bring in Big Clint to act as an attacker on Jack.

Note that West’s defensive moves are almost always followed up with quick offensive strikes against the attacker.
