A Reminder of Why Women Need Significant Self-Defense Skills | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Dec 20, 2017
This is a sad reminder of why women need to be able to defend themselves. Self-defense skills are a necessity because for the most part women are smaller and less physically strong than men, and incidents like this remind us that they need to be able to protect themselves.

Some people are just off their rocker, as this loon highlights. The news story linked below shows that he has a host of personality issues, and threatening a clerk over not getting a discount on his pizza is par for the course.

Officers Save Man Who Threatened Them | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Dec 25, 2017
These officers had just a split second to decide what to do with this man who threatened them. If they HAD chosen to defend their own lives it would have been 100% justified, but because the first officer had a chance to start the 5 ds +1, and because the proximity caused the other officer to hesitate, we get a feel good story on Christmas day.

A Former Navy SEAL Commander Says The Best Defense Is To Run – This Is Why
Business Insider


Published on Dec 23, 2017
Jocko Willink, a former Navy SEAL commander, host of the "Jocko Podcast," and the author of "Discipline Equals Freedom: Field Manual," believes your best chances might be to run from a fight. Following is a full transcript of the video.

Jocko Willink: If someone attacks me and they want to punch or kick me, I can just run away. They're not holding onto me. I can get away from them. It's when someone grabs you that you need some technique to get out of there, or someone takes you to the ground — that's when you need some technique to get out of there. If someone just wants to punch me, well, I'll walk away from them or run away from them. That's OK.

Hi, I'm Jocko Willink. I'm retired from the military and just wrote a book called Discipline Equals Freedom Field Manual.

Obviously, I am a fan of jiu-jitsu. No. 1: It's very practical, like I said, for self-defense. And again, the goal of jiu-jitsu in self-defense isn't to take someone down to the ground — the goal in jiu-jitsu for self-defense is actually to be able to defend yourself on the ground, get up, and get away from an attacker. That's what the goal is.

Now, some people might think: “Well, Jocko, I don't want to run away if somebody wants to fight me. I want to fight them.” Well, let's think about where that might end up for you. No. 1: You don't know if this person has a weapon or not. What if they have a knife? What if they have a pistol? What if they've got three or four friends? And now you're getting either shot, stabbed, mutilated, or otherwise maimed and killed. That's not what you're looking for on a Friday night as you're walking down the street.

OK, so let's say you're so tough that the other guy — he doesn't have a knife, he doesn't have a gun, he doesn't have any friends — and you take him out and break his arm, choke him, and put him to sleep. Well now guess what happens? You're getting arrested. Now you're getting in a lawsuit. Now you have to pay this person money that you actually wanted to beat up.

So it's a lose-lose situation to get in a confrontation on the street. If you can break contact and get away, break contact and get away. That's what you should learn self-defense for. Obviously, if someone is doing something that they're attacking someone in your family and you have to step in to defend yourself, well, that's why you continue training all the time — because that might happen, and you have to be prepared for that. Optimally, you get out of there: You break contact, you get away. If you have to stand and fight, you train yourself so that you're able to do it.

“Better to be Tried by 12 than Carried by 6” (Dumb Gun Sayings) | Active Self Protection Extra
Active Self Protection Extra


Published on Dec 27, 2017
There are a good number of shibboleths in the gun culture of America that make me want to hit myself in the head with a hammer. Chief among them is “it’s better to be tried by 12 than carried by 6.” At its core, unadorned idea it’s not necessarily wrong, but the way it gets used and extrapolated is ridiculous. Here’s a better approach for you and yours!

Should you help Friends and Family fight their case? - Prison Talk 13.9
Fresh Out- Life After The Penitentiary


Published on Jan 3, 2018
A viewer wrote in asking if helping a loved one with legal favors is worth it. The legal system moves slow if you don't have the resources to keep the odds in your favor. Often times guys on the inside don't have the same resources as those on the outside, so they turn to friends and family for a helping hand. Big Herc has something to say about all of this. Tune in to find out.

Awareness, or “situational awareness” as it’s often called, is an important skill for all self-defenders to practice and use! That said, people often misunderstand the difference between awareness and paranoia. I hope this discussion helps you not be paranoid at life while still being aware!

3 Essential Psychological Factors to Survive A BAD SITUATION | How to Defend Yourself
Fight SCIENCE


Published on Mar 26, 2016
How to defend yourself in bad situations depends on 3 key psychological factors. This week we discuss how to fight anxiety from a mount attack. Mounts are a form of psychological intimidation in a fight, so we discuss how to defend yourself against this dreaded position in a street fight. This is psychology for self defence. FEEL FREE TO COMMENT ON HOW YOU MANAGE ANXIETY WHEN DEFENDING THE MOUNT.

To defend the mount the first thing to do is not to panic. This is obvious to say but there are a number of things that you could do to relieve pressure on your chest. We discuss these points in some detail. We also discuss how to avoid anxiety in this position, as well as how to fight back when you have the opportunity.

These ideas are not just for ground fighting they are transferable to any situation in which you have to defend yourself. As we say ‘psychology wins fights’ and this means that any self defence situation requires that you have a calm determined mind. It’s the difference between surviving a street fight or attack in the streets.

Avoid these 3 Psychological Problems to Improve Your Mounted Self Defence. Please feel free to leave us your comments on how you deal with anxiety in the mount.

Please feel free to watch these videos to see how all of this information links together for a great self defence strategy.

A Tale of Two Reactions to the Same Problem | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Jan 12, 2018
It’s not often that we get to see two reactions to the same problem so closely, and in the same incident no less. But here we get to see one officer who gives verbal command after verbal command and gets stuck in a loop, and another officer who gives one opportunity to comply and then acts to stop the threat. It’s an interesting and useful incident to observe and learn from.
