Weather Disaster Planning & Preparedness

Posted on 21 July 2014

Posted on 21 July 2014

Every Wednesday morning there was a school wide assembly and during part of it any student who wasn’t of the same faith as that running the school was identified.

Posted on 18 July 2014

Building Shooting Muscle

Posted on 15 July 2014

If you carry a gun for self-defense, then you are engaged in the pursuit of defensive skills rather than shooting merely for the experience of shooting.

Women & Self-Defense, Part 2

Posted on 14 July 2014

In this article what we need to discuss is how to defend yourself against an assault when it occurs. To discuss that, though, we need to talk about mindset and willingness to do harm, not to mention willingness to accept discomfort or injury in order to inflict greater discomfort or injury.

Women and Self-Defense

Posted on 14 July 2014

Understand that even as you act you change the circumstances that supported your last decision thereby jump starting a new decision making cycle. Never assume that THIS action is the LAST action – it NEVER is. Finally, remember that YOUR safety is YOUR responsibility. If YOU fail ultimately YOU will pay the price.
