Have you prepared?

Preparation is a key to success.

Both mentally and physically.

Ever heard of behaviorally-based self-defense?

Have you EVER been taught the essential impacts of proper fear management?
(or lack there of?)

…actually studied awareness and early detection processes?

…given yourself permission to choose safety and ACT on intuition once you pick up danger?

…been taught and/or practiced choice speech for de-fusing a situation?

And of course:

Ever practiced simple yet effective use of personal weapons anywhere CLOSE to the intensity of an actual sudden, violent attack? On an actual person?!
