Emergency Preparedness Tips

In this mortal existence none of us will escape the storms of life. Our loving Heavenly Father has created a beautiful world that was prepared to help us through this experience. There will be times of prosperity and joy and there will be times of little and sadness.

The Recent Increase in Media Survival Information

I have noticed recently that many of the newspapers, magazines and television stations are now escalating their number of survival articles which they produce. It is almost as if they are trying to tell us something without actually coming out and stating that we should be prepared for the inevitable.

Safe Times With Self Defense Weapons

When it comes to military self defense, people have this idealistic notion that we should only use our fists and legs and ignore all else. This is all well and good in theory, but do you really think that the average thug cares much for chivalric ideas or fair play? Get one thing straight, once someone attacks you they waive all rights to a fair fight. In the streets, it is hurt or be hurt and the only thing that matters is getting home safe. Besides, when someone is endangering your very life the last thing you should be thinking about is whether you should use a bottle in self defense.

How to Defend Yourself Even Without Martial Arts Moves

There is bad news and good news when it comes to street crime. The bad news is that it’s increasing. There is no getting away from that fact. Even though it is well known that police forces like to mask the real crime rates, even their possibly filtered down statistics suggest that crime is on the up. The good news is that street thugs are not particularly bright or brave so anyone who knows how to fight back is likely to be able to successfully fend them off. Even better news is that learning martial arts moves to help you defeat them is not necessary as some old fashioned street fighting maneuvers could be enough.

Watch Out for Mistakes in Self Defense Training Programs

Deciding to purchase a hand to hand combat training video is the second most important decision you make when it comes to self defense. Choosing the right one is the most vital and also the hardest. Even though you may find dozens of training programs with similar titles, rest assured that they are not all the same. While the principles should be similar they are not. This is because most of these videos are garbage and are ineffective when it comes to defending yourself against a street attack. What you need is a self defense training program that is flexible and useful in any situation, not something that will only be effective in certain situations.

The Difficulties Encountered When Finding Good Self Defense Videos

Fear sells and scammers are aware of this in every walk of life. Home security firms explain that your home will be burgled if you don’t purchase their hi-tech $30,000 system, merchants tell you that no one loves bald men and you must buy their ‘hair in a drum’ to be seen as young and virile and con artists like to sell self defense videos which assure you that only physical pain awaits you if you ignore their product. There must be thousands of such videos out there and picking a good one is like finding a needle in a mountain range of haystacks.

Why Self Defense Tactics Don’t Just Involve Fighting

You could go to self defense classes every week and feel pretty confident about being able to take care of yourself but unless you have a set of effective self defense tactics, you could be in for a nasty surprise one day. Just because you know a few maneuvers doesn’t mean that you are any less likely to get attacked. A thug will not suddenly look at you and say to themselves ‘oh, that person knows self defense, I better run along’. No attacker knows the strengths of their victim, all they see is weakness. And no amount of martial arts techniques you have learned recently will save you from their clutches unless you have some plan of action. This is necessary to ensure that you don’t freeze when it comes to the crunch.

Why You Should Have No Excuses Not to Learn Self Defense

Suggestions that it is unnecessary to learn self defense are wide of the mark and frankly, dangerous. Even if you live in what seems like a safe area, all it take is one thug and one incident to change your life forever. It would be foolish to put your safety and that of your family’s at risk which is why it is necessary to learn some techniques to give you peace of mind. There are literally hundreds of courses out there with the regular training course seemingly a thing of the past. With our increasingly hectic schedules, it is simply not possible to attend a class on a specific day at a set time. We need flexibility to suit our schedules which is why online courses come in so handy.

Dangerous Martial Arts Techniques to Avoid

With an influx of thugs seemingly deciding to make random attacks a regular occurrence there are a rash of martial arts classes being taught. Some offer great instruction at reasonable prices and if you follow their martial arts techniques closely, you will be in a much better position to defend yourself. The problem is that with so many classes and teachers there are bound to be some con artists who don’t know what it is they’re doing. They make all sorts of claims, stating that they are a ‘Grandmaster’ and that everything they teach you is guaranteed to work. This would be all fine and good only for the fact that their super secret techniques are more likely to hurt you than your opponent.

How Martial Arts Self Defense Training Is About Being Smart As Well As Being Tough

With martial arts self defense videos you always have a fair idea what to expect. You will usually have an instructor who claims to be some expert who teaches you basic moves and stances. You follow these tips rigidly and feel confident because you believe that you are learning the keys to great self defense. In actual fact, these videos and classes only scratch the surface of what is needed to be in control when under duress. While it is very important to know all the moves, it is equally vital to know how to avoid trouble. While it is fantastic to have all of these martial arts moves in your locker, the best way to stay safe is to avoid trouble altogether.

How Badly Taught Military Self Defense Can Cause You Problems

When you hear the term ‘military self defense’ you automatically think of Green Berets dismantling an attacker with precision moves that an ordinary person could never learn. To be honest, no regular citizen will be able to fight like a marine or soldier because they have years and in some cases decades of training behind them. Yet you have instructors trying teach some of these martial arts techniques in the same way as it would be taught to a military person which is completely wrong. As already stated, these men and women are physically elite so what is taught to them is not applicable to 99% of the population. While this doesn’t mean that the techniques they learn are redundant, it is clear that there are problems with the way they are taught.

12 Questions Everyone Should Know How to Answer

You’ve heard the spiel and probably even taken the class-the one that shows you how to magically pack 3-days worth of food into a milk carton that will become your most prized possession in the event of an emergency. Flipping on the news you can even see how that little carton could take the edge off of tragedies like hurricanes and earthquakes occurring around the world. But is it really just as simple as stockpiling non-perishable food in a milk carton, or buying a bucket-o’-preparedness at a retailer to make sure everything will be all better when disaster…
