What is Self Defense Today?
Self Defense today? What am I specificallty talking about? Well the world of self defense is not what is was 10 years ago, 20 years ago, or even a 5 months ago. Everything about self defense must now be looked at in a different light. It is now an all inclusive idea, and not just about phyically defending against an attack.
Violence on the streets of the western nations today like the UNited States, Canada and Europe are off the scales. They resemble a war zone. Police are told to stand down, even defunded in some place, while the corrupt politicians lie and pretend all is well.
In my view, as an example Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot is complicent in every crime committed in Chicago since she does NOTHING TO STOP IT. With over 2000 shootings in Chicago since January 1st she needs to be removed from office and charged as an accessory after the fact. And of course the main stream media lies and ignores the real statistics. Today CNN-CNBC-CBC etc are simply media of the STATE.
Why? Because they are as corrupt as "Mayor" Lightfoot. But you see it is not just her, it is almost ever person in any political office today.
Defending Yourself Today
The powers that be get on their knees before them, rather than FIGHTING THEM like they did ISIS or any other terrorist organiztion. In Self Defense TODAY this means if you defend yourself you are likely going to be charged with a HATE CRIME while your elected official release dangerous criminals.
It has to END NOW! Your RIGHT to Self Defense is all but gone today. Therefore the need to approach things differenly. self Defense today is multi dimensional, and must be approached from many different aspects. So lets take a look.
Physical Training in REAL Self Defense
Ok, I mean real self defense, not a sport! Too many people believe the things they see in a MMA arena will work in real life. And for the average person, and the average martial arts student they will not!
Being attacked on the street is a life or death situation, especially today! One of these evil rioters may just come up on you and shoot you in the head. Like that woman who DARNED to say "all lives matter." to one of these BLM criminals. They are, have become, what they "claim" to fight against!
You need to train and train hard! Daily if possible, With the currently bullshit about social distancing, and I will talk about this later in the article, the Dojo is out! Therefore work with family and friends you can TRUST. Today that is a big question, who can you TRUST? And train in a system designed for REAL Street Self Defense!
Psychology of Self Defense
“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. And if you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat.
If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.” Sun Tzu
This quote is very true. Our streets today are not about "peaceful protests." That is a BOLD FACE LIE told by the media who endorse violence. The streets are over run by people with serious mental ilnesses. Illnesses like:
To name a few! I suggest reading my book on this topic. It will help. The book is called the Psychology of Self Defense.
All Inclusive Self Defense
Let's take a break from the written word and checkout this video!
What are the Steps?
1) Train in a solid self defense system! and Train HARD. Take HPPT!
2) Secure your life! Learn everything you can about security and privacy
3) Arm yourself, and learn the systems needed to use the weapon. An example is my cane course
4) Secure you home. Good quality locks, fenses of possible. Create as much of a fortress as you can.
5) Build support groups with GOOD people in your neighbourhood.
Things are going to get much worse before they get better. You no longer have the luxury of apathy. Take charge of you life now and protect those you love. You can no longer depend on other to do what is right!
