If you ever found yourself in a dangerous or threatening situation, would you know what to do?  Would you be able to defend yourself?  That is the question many folks are asking after Tuesday morning’s attack in Manhattan’s Riverside Park where a man wielding scissors injured 5 people including a toddler.

PIX11 Morning News anchor Dan Mannarino, who admitted to spending much time in that very park, says he would not know the basics to protect himself in a potentially dangerous situation.  He reached out to Tsahi Samesh and Carlos Gutierrez for expert advice.  The two instructors from International Krav Maga New York shared some basic self-defense techniques.
