We talked about Being a PeaceWalker and Building a Protector
Lifestyle. More specifically we discusses:
1) Mindset & Ethic
2) Church Security
3) Profiling Behavioral Red Flags
4) Interviewing procedures & tips
This morning I was clipping along getting things done, when
the electricity shut off...
Our Snowmageddon turned into IceMageddon.=(
Oh well... We'll survive...
It gave me an excuse to go to one of my favorite coffee
houses (luckily their power's working!)
I was going over the email I sent to some of you PeaceWalkers...
It was alright, not crazy insightful... but …
This is a concept that is taught by practitioners of
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The idea of it is that you first establish a good
(tactical) position BEFORE you initiate an attack.
Because you will always have to give something to get
something. Meaning that you are going to have to risk or sacrifice something
you have to gain something you want.
In a physical engagement in order to attack you have to risk
some of your defensive position.
In relationships, you have to risk being vulnerable and
getting hurt, to deepen your relationship with another person.
In a fire fight with guns, you have to expose yourself in
order to get your shot in or return fire.
In business you have to risk resources like time, money and
effort to acquire something in order to possibly gain financially.
There are few "Sure Things" out there... So it's really about Managing Your Risk...
What I teach in my Assault Prevention Course can be used in
life outside of defending yourself physically:
When it comes to training to protect, less cryptic and more
clarity is not only a plus it's essential! That's why I like Krav Maga & the PeaceWalker Approach to Conflict.
Now I know some of you who train w/me are saying...
"Sometimes you're cryptic as f*ck Craig."
...and you would be right! But that's because when it comes to APPLICATION of those
basic principles things get real!
...And SIMPLE doesn't mean EASY!
It depends on what course/class you come to and what
questions you ask. If you take one of our Basic Defensive Tactics or
PeaceWalker Conflict Management Courses it is a 1-2-3 approach.
The basic fundamentals are not that cryptic they are
elegant! It's in their application where things get a bit confusing for the
novice. The concepts can be so simple that people think they are
easy and believe they 'got it'. Then when they try applying that Basic
Principle and fail. After that people typically want the next thing to solve
