We have been talking about gun taking which I think are advanced techniques. Also there was a little discussion about knife taking and most schools in my knowledge practice knife taking.
I fell that if someone pulled a knife on my I have a good chance of taking it of them with minimal injury to me. But what would you do if someone pulled a used needle on you? I don't mind getting some cuts but a needle quite frankly scares me, just after some opinions.

That is scary. Co-operate and/or run is all I can think of.
In Ireland, you get charged for attempted murder with that, whether the syringe is infected or not.

Ive heard of a few instances were a mugger has used a needle to get his will. I think only in one instace was the needle actualy tainted and not just a bluff. You could probably use the same techniques aganst the needle that you would against a stabbing attack witha knife. Also even if the needle pentrates the skin the stopper has to be drepressed. Small comfort. O.k. how bout this. HIV can only survive out side the body for 12 to 24 hours. If I recall correctly. Secoundly it take a large injection of several hundred active viruses for HIV to take hold. Apperently one lone virus cannot do it alone. Plus you would bleed from the wound, the blood would push the viruse from you body. HIV is scary but you could defend your self aganst a needle. If worst come to worst keep some distace and use kick to the weapon hand. Then again you could simply say "yes sir here is my wallet" Tose it to him and run like hell. This is something a former DEA agent once told me. If the suspect doesn't kill you as soon as he pulls his weapon. Chances are he won't kill you. You all can debate the truth of that statement. Hope I was some help.

What about an elephant? What are you going to do if there is no room to tenkan?

Geez...if you stick to basic principles then the weapon shouldn't matter...only the distance.

heh heh...
Also, why throw the wallet and then run. Keep the wallet, you'll go faster! Or wave it it front of them first... :cool:

Seriously, in Scotland people have also been jailed for attempted murder for the needle thing.
