Split Second Decisions

There are so many articles on the Internet from people, especially “prepper” websites, in regards to “what would you do in a SHTF situation” scenario. To be honest with you it gets old.

Managing Unknown Contacts

I’ve been on the road now teaching citizen self defense courses for about a year, and it’s been very educational for me. I’ve been able to improve my own course work based on student feedback and more importantly I’ve been able to prioritize the presentation of my material.As everyone probably knows at this point I’m a fanatic about contextually underscored training. We should always be examining the problem and focus our solutions accurately.Tactics, I’ve come to realize in the citizen self defense world are more often than not,...
