“The art of living is more like wrestling than dancing, because an artful life requires being prepared to meet and withstand sudden and unexpected attacks.”

– Marcus Aurelius

Everyone’s basic instinct is to protect themselves and their family. Have you thought about how you will react when an unexpected attack occurs? Will you panic and fumble around because you don’t know what to do?

Protecting our family comes in many forms. From basic self defense and the proper mindset to concealed carry and the proper tools.

Most importantly, we can’t freeze or panic when an unexpected attack occurs. In order to withstand an attack and be prepared, we must not only have the proper tools, but the proper training as well.

In this section our goal is to provide you with guides for protecting your family as well as self defense, home defense, and the tools you will need. We will go deeper into mindset topics as well as training and cover the how, not just the what.

Explore this section and start putting together a plan for different scenarios that you may face and what tools you may need.
