Seriously, I've never heard of any of Suarez's students getting into a gunfight
'Avoiding' beats 'surviving' any day

smince...

.... unless you are claiming Suarez' training is the main reason why his students have been able to avoid gunfights, that comment is a complete non sequitir.

OK

I know of a couple who have prevailed in fights.

He doesn't use 'saves' as an advertising talking point.

Its also a round-a-bout way of implying that Tom Givens doesn't teach avoidance, deterrence and deescalation. But simply put, it doesn't address the question at all.

I actually didin't mean to imply that at all. Tom is spoken of pretty highly around SI. Gabe even sells some his videos on his store site.

But thanks anyway

My sensei can beat up your sensei...

I think this one's run its course. Thanks for the good conversation, everyone.
