The Knowledge how to defend yourself is one of the most essential life skills you just need to have. Mankind is violent. It always has been, and it probably always will be.

It isn’t the fancy technique or contents of your bag that will determine whether or not you survive when an emergency strikes. It’s YOU  ... View Profile
