In an effort to combat the recent administration’s attempts to further restrict gun ownership in the
According to the 2006 Use of Force by Police report less than less than 0.2% of all arrests involved drawing a weapon at all. That doesn’t include discharging the weapon. The overwhelming majority of incidences 98% involved no weapon at all. That means if you are really concerned for your safety and your family’s well being you need to seriously consider hand to hand combat training.
If guns are not the answer, how about martial arts?
Martial arts are not self defense. Martial arts are good for building self esteem, getting in shape and becoming part of a community. Martial arts have rules, etiquette and are not designed to severely injure your opponent (even though it may feel like that). Many martial artists don’t like to admit that the techniques they wasted years practicing didn’t work in the street. Fighting for your life is not sparring in the dojo.
Self defense is about what works: tactics and training, simple and effective.
Personally, I don’t carry a gun and I don’t need a gun. When I was legally allowed to carry a firearm as a professional bodyguard and security specialist I found it was more of a liability than an asset. Believe me; I think the world would be a little safer if everyone carried a firearm. Criminals’ biggest fear is going into a home where the homeowner has a firearm.
The reality is you will be in a situation where you’re forced to defend yourself. Unless you have your weapon in your hand, you will be forced to defend yourself with empty hand techniques.
I don’t need a gun. People who train in our program don’t need a gun. If you think a gun is all you need you will be dead wrong. I guarantee, if someone who trained in the Self Defense Training System were standing 7 feet from you and attacked you, you would not have a snowballs chance in Hades.
If you are going to hang your life, more importantly, the life of your family and friends, well good luck quick draw. Unless you’re walking around gun in hand you have a deadly problem.
Now if you trained in the Self Defense Training System and carried a firearm, you would be just that much more dangerous. Carry a firearm as part of your arsenal; don’t let it be your arsenal.
