If you spend any time watching National Geographic type television, you undoubtedly see the classic scene where the predator gobbles up the unsuspecting prey. It truly is natural selection at work, and all predators are experts at spotting the easy targets.

0136 - Get Some Rest: My Story

/
My wife and I are very blessed in that we have successfully structured our lives to place family as a top priority. This past weekend we made a trip to the south to spend time with extended family to celebrate a birthday. The drive we made was a total of about 13 hours. That amount of time in the car can certainly tire you out. It did me. Today we will take a look at the consequences that resulted from my fatigue.

Now that we have a show up, check out the great performance of a hotel clerk in this shootout. There are some things we will talk about that could have gone better as well!

0122 - Carry Weapon Condition

/
One of the things I enjoy most about teaching is the opportunities it provides to be reminded of my humble beginnings. In the past 12 years or so that I have become increasingly interested in self-defense and concealed weapons I have had the opportunity to gain a tremendous amount of knowledge. Working with students who are where I once was is an excellent reminder of where it is that I came from. That being said, I don't ever remember being in a place where I didn't carry a gun with a round in the chamber. I am always surprised as to how often I read on the www how people are unsure as to whether they should carry their gun with a round in the tube.

In war "Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." Heraclitus (circa 500 BC)

0114 - Tools of Unarmed Self-Defense: Your Knees

I love the fact that everyday we are walking around with a pair of sledge hammers to use to defend ourselves when the need arises. The premier striking tool we posses as unarmed combatants is without a doubt our knees. Today we will take a look at how our knees can be used as our most powerful tools of unarmed combat.
