Defender Uses Empty-Handed Skills to Stop the Threat | Active Self Protection

Can someone please tell him to do a video on this robbery?

This security guard walks in on a robbery and starts shooting them like it’s nothing. He’s 100% calm, zero adrenaline. It was crazy and funny as hell

Thanks for providing these videos and comments. FYI "coup de grâce" is the phrase you are looking for. It means "an act if grace."  "Coup de gras"  means "an act of fat."
