“Back in the day, castles created the illusion of safety. Over time, this eroded our survival instincts and skills. The walls are long gone.

Domestication has made us complacent, dulled awareness and stymied physicality. Political correctness has diluted our voice and assertiveness.

Now, during a violent encounter, most people wait, hoping & praying the cavalry will rush in. They do... eventually.

People need to realize that they are the ‘first-responder’ in their violent encounter.”
— Coach Tony Blauer
