It's a sad fact of life that the world we live in is no longer safe. Schools, movie theaters, and even concert halls have all been targeted in recent years, as terrorism is on the rise, all over the world.

We're all preparing for the unexpected, and I believe it's highly unlikely that when a SHTF scenario actually goes down I'll be ready and waiting. I like to think I will be, but life sometimes gets in the way. Perhaps you're travelling. At work. At school. There are a thousand places you might be, and without a means to protect yourself, you're a target. Today, I want to cover the techniques behind unarmed combat. Imagine this.
