These are chaotic times we live in. No matter where you go with your car, you should always be aware of your surroundings. It's best to avoid trouble whenever possible. But in situations where that's not an option, it pays to know how to defend yourself

To learn a bit more about how to best protect ourselves in the real world, we enlisted the expertise of the fine folks that run the Philippine sector of the International Krav Maga Federation (IKMF). In case you're not familiar, Krav Maga is a no-nonsense self-defense system that was developed last century for use by the Israeli Defense Forces. Its techniques aren't designed to look fancy or to topple an opponent within a certain rule set. Instead, the objective is to defend against and neutralize a threat as quickly as possible.

In this video, IKMF Philippines chief instructor Dindo de Jesus demonstrates what to do in an all too common carjacking scenario. We'll have more videos coming up soon of other common self-defense problems you might encounter while driving or riding in a car. Stay safe, guys.
