42 - Guest writer: Rodolfo Valdes


Always a pleasure to talk with friend and fellow Force Necessary instructor Rodolfo Valdes (seen above training in the US with former SEAL team member) who runs Force Necessary: Argentina.

We're proud to share that one of Rodolfo's Force Necessary students recently foiled the attempted kidnapping of a three year old toddler by an alleged paedophile who tried to abduct the child in the street in broad daylight from her Aunt.

It's a great example of why self defence training is a positive benefit to your community.

Rodolfo, a security consultant with a police patrol and corrections background also sent this video (Below) of a similar abduction attempt caught on video where members of the public act to save a child and then apprehend the suspect.

Rodolfo writes:

"If we had told you about these type of incidents, which are becoming more frequent every day around the world (this is the second video we published on this subject, the previous one was on July 9, 2016), you probably would not have believed us or think we are just exaggerated (as sometimes happened to us).

The phenomenon of paedophiles who go after a girl or boy trying to pass over their parents or whoever stands in their way, is more and more frequent. 

Crime mutates. Here we observe that they do not seek access and privacy in a subtle way with the child so that the paedophile make his horible acts, here they seek access in a violent way to later have privacy and to stop someone like that, you have to be prepared. 

Luckily someone with training knowledge was able to stop him in the end. 

Observe how from the street, the pedophile tries to steal one of her daughters from this brave mother who is alone with her daughters of 9, 2 and a one-year-old boy and she struggles to avoid the kidnapping of the two-year-old girl, falls to the floor holding her with strength and runs to shelter within the store. 

Luckily someone intervened and the pedophile was later arrested. It is still dangerous to intervene but we are really glad that someone did. 

It is surprising to know that the person who detained and stopped the paedophile is only 16 years old."

41 - Home invasion with distraction


Looks like a targeted attack on a specific property as going in to an unknown would prove much higher risk.

Victim will have been watched for a period of time prior.

Female is used to circumvent external security like a camera etc and to lower the guard of the occupant by posing as low risk.

Asking questions like directions, asking for help or pretending to be delivering to the wrong address will occupy the thoughts of the victim away from scanning the street or general awareness.

Accomplices wait out of sight and approach partailly blocked by door.

Looks like a weapon threat upon entering.

Female then acts as lookout as second male enters.
