Complete Self Defense
When I took on the task of developing our Fearless Personal Protection program, I studied and researched all types of information. I reviewed videos of real attacks, examined martial arts and military strategies, and even studied medical examiners reports on how the victims died.
In our workshops and seminars I always stress the concept of complete self defense. Having a system that attempts to make you safe in as many areas of life as possible.
Ultimately will it really matter to your family if you got shot to death in a home invasion or die of a heart attack?
Will It matter that you died in a car wreck because you weren't wearing your seatbelt and or were stabbed to death by a mugger? All your family knows is you’re not there to take care of them anymore.
Self defense should encompass every area of your life. Heart disease is the number one killer in America. You are more likely to die of a heart attack or stroke than being killed by a “bad guy”. If you eat poorly and die of heart disease at age forty-five you are no good to your family.
What about financial self defense? You need to be prepared for economic hardships. The average American will make five to ten major career/job changes in their lifetime. Are you prepared to defend yourself against losing your job? Do you have a defense plan to cover your family in case of a major illness or injury?
If you really serious about self defense, then develop a systematic plan of prevention that encompasses all areas of your life. Then take small steps towards the ultimate goal of living a long, healthy and prosperous life.
