We do a drill in krav where person A closes his eyes & person B sneaks around & smacks them from any angle with a punch sheild. Person A then attacks the pad with whatever strike we were just practicing.
Person B often also shouts something aggressive at person A to add a little adrenaline. This also serves to get people to not be shocked at hearing aggressive or violent language yelled right at them. Being shocked causes one to freeze for a moment, & we want people to react aggressively. For instance, at my female students I sometimes shout, “Move, bitch!” or “Get in the van!”
Well the other day I was smacking an Army guy who’d just come back from the middle east & will be returning soon. I’ve heard that “God is great” is often used as a battle cry, and that “Allahu akbar” is the Arabic translation. So that’s what I was yelling.
Am I correct about this? And what else should I be shouting at soldiers? How about cops?
I’m open to suggestions regarding civilians as well, but I’m just clueless about the experiences of soldiers & cops - and I don’t want to ask them directly, because I want to surprise them.
