The Perfect Retirement Plan?!

How Much Is Enough?! . An American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal village in Mexico when a small boat with a lone fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large fin tuna. The American complimented the man on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took him to catch them? . The man Replied, "Only a little while." . The banker then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish? . The fisherman replied that he had enough to support his family's immediate needs. . The banker went on to say, "But what do you do with the rest of your time:" . The fisherman replied, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take a siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos.

Do People Feel Safer When You're There?

This might sound like a weird question... but it is an important one! Think about it... Do they? If they do Why? Or if they don't, than Why Not? I don't mean just physically safer. I'm talking emotionally safer too. Like if they needed you, you'd have their back in whatever capacity.

Krav Maga: More Than a Survivor!

You Need to Learn More Than Techniques! In the thick of a real conflict, techniques break down quickly. As a matter of fact, they are typically the first to go. We lose fine motor movement...  We forget... We f-up... Techniques tend to be reactionary. So, then why is everyone looking to learn the next 'Trick' to solve the problem?  Because learning & teaching techniques is EASY! ...AND it makes us feel like we have accomplished something. But that's a load of BS! And it can get you and the people you're protecting hurt or worse.  Learning technique can be a first step, but... If you're only thinking about techniques, you're thinking too small!  ...And you're going to pay for it! You have to think bigger! WAY BIGGER! Novices are thinking all technique... Folks who are the Real Professionals have developed a Lifestyle. They Train Their... Bodies like Soldiers Minds Like Generals

Are You Talking to a 'Wanna Be?' It seems like today everyone is trying to be a Navy SEAL, IDF Counter Terrorist, Special Ops dude just back from 3 tours in Afghanistan or some Tactical Baddy working the thugs in the street... The allure is there! When it comes to defending yourself and those you care about, who doesn't want to be a Jocko? Or Etan (Hardcore IDF mofo...), Jason Bourne or some sh*t like that?!? However... You DON'T Have to Be a  'Wanna Be!!' PeaceWalker's come in all shapes and sizes... All ages... Professions... Backgrounds... Genders... Ethnicities... Personal preferences... World views... Political & religious affiliation... Life experiences & expectation... And skill levels... YES... Some are Police, Military & Security Pro's? And those folks deserve respect for their service... BUT... You don't have to have a background like
