It's the kind of technique a special agent would know, and it is quite popular for self-defense as well. So I don't think it's exoticism, it's just slightly more precise than saying "hand-to-hand fighting", because it namedrops a widely-used technique that is specifically aimed towards disarming opponents with pistols or guns.

Jun 14, 2019 at 13:04 comment added ShapeOfMatter @PoorYorick, your point about different sets of skills seems good, but Krav Maga is way to specific. It reads as exoticism, and it over-corrects: just because he hasn't trained in Krav Maga doesn't mean he hasn't trained in hand-to-hand fighting.
Jun 14, 2019 at 12:05 comment added PoorYorick +1. Small suggestion: "He didn't know Krav Maga. She did. Simple as that." Because I think being a gun-nut and disarming people are two different sets of skills. ;)
