If you don't teach people what to do you are teaching them to do nothing." - Lt. Col. Dave Grossman
So few act in the moment of truth simply because they don't know what to do. Indecision paralyzes them. Lack of training manifests as inaction. Most people walk about unarmed; their life-saving tools left at home, their mind dulled and un-sharpened. To survive one must be armed both mentally and physically. Have you trained? Trained for what? To fight when you must. Are you confident that when push comes to shove and you have no other recourse that you could fight for your life and the lives of those you love?
It is my mission and duty to instruct as many as possible in how to protect themselves. By strengthening you I help to strengthen our nation. When you become stronger you help strengthen the nation. Seek out training so that you have the mental and physical abilities to survive a deadly force encounter.
If you are reading this and you are a person who has expertise in personal protection of some form, I implore you to instruct and teach others. Help to strengthen the nation. Help to strengthen your communities. Take your radius of existence and make it a little bit safer. The bad man doesn't wait for us to get training and make our communities more secure. He is a threat now. We must act now. If you fail to teach the people around you, you are teaching them to do nothing. And 'nothing' is not a good response to violence. As any marksman knows, a stationary target is a dead target.
Warriors attack the attack. We must attack the attack against the enemies of our freedom and safety. Defiantly we must rise up to protect all that we deem most personal. If not you, then who? Ultimately, the only person responsible for your safety is yourself. Take charge of your security today. Whether you are poor or rich, white or black, old or young; it makes no difference. Everyone has the fundamental right to protect themselves. But you must take the initiative. You must take action. There are individuals like myself and many more like me who are determined to equip Americans with the tools they need to protect themselves. Get training. Don't wait until after violence has victimized you. You may not have a 2nd chance. Get the training now.
To your safety,
