A Reminder to Obey the Rules of Stupid | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Jan 18, 2018
Honestly, the best bet for the victim here would have been to follow the Rules of Stupid: Don’t go Stupid places, with Stupid people, at Stupid times, and do Stupid things. Break one and you might be okay. Break 2 or more Rules of Stupid, though, and you’re in trouble.

NEWS STORIES, MORE INFO:

This video was sent to me by someone who wishes not to be named, but who has some access to the security footage for this building in Toronto. This incident never made the news, so there are no news stories on it. It’s not on the internet anywhere, either, so this is the raw footage. It’s an ASP exclusive.

Defenders’ Lack of Awareness Leaves Him Few Options | Active Self Protection

Published on Jan 20, 2018
Awareness buys you time; time buys you options. This defenders’ lack of awareness leaves him few options to defend himself, and his timing problems in his decision to resist gave him almost no chance for a positive outcome. Lots to learn here from an incident that’s not happy or fun to consider.

SOUTH AFRICA: FLAME THROWING DEVICE TO COMBAT CAR JACKING (V)
AP Archive


Published on Jul 21, 2015
English/Nat

VOICED BY: Louise Bates

With car-jackings increasingly common in South Africa, one inventor has created the ultimate deterrent - a flame-thrower.

When it's fitted to the side of a car, the 'blaster' system send out jets of fire to stop any would-be hijackers in their tracks.

VOICE-OVER:

0005: The heat is on for South Africa's car thieves.

0007: It looks like a James Bond movie.

0009: But the inventor of the Blaster system, Charles Fourie, believes he's found a way to deal with car-jackers...

0015: SOUNDBITE: (English)
"This car is a coded key pad, or just a key switch on the dashboard. When it's turned it'll show that the system is now armed and ready for activation. Underneath here we have a foot switch; the system will function for as long as you keep it down. And just quickly to explain how it works. When this foot switch is pressed, two things happen. One, a 14-thousand volt spark would appear here in this nozzle, and then you have these four jets here shooting out gas. Liquid gas from the gas bottle in the boot. Liquid gas, as soon as it exits over the spark here, will ignite and a ball of flame will shoot out of both side of the vehicle. Incapacitating the hijackers immediately."

0111: Amazingly perhaps, the system's legal in South Africa -
provided the driver is acting in self defence as depicted in this mock-up.
0020: About 25 vehicles so far have the Blaster, but no one has yet tested the system for real.

Read the news stories on this one and you’ll see that the guard was outside and saw this one brewing; because the guard was alert, the robbers day was ruined. And that’s a good thing!

Published on Feb 13, 2018
I say it all the time, friends: don’t let your ego get you into fights! This road rage incident shows why our ego can cost us dearly and reminds us not to get into ego contests with other drivers. It also shows us why de-escalation, escape, and avoidance are our best bets!

Lack of Awareness Leads to Crime of Opportunity | Active Self Protection

Your greatest assets as a self-defender are awareness and knowledge of risk factors for victimization. Here, lack of awareness leads to a crime of opportunity that the victim might have been able to avoid!

Inmates in a MAD MAX world - Prison Talk 14.3
Fresh Out- Life After The Penitentiary


Published on Feb 19, 2018
In 2017 we collaborated with The Canadian Prepper. He had several questions regarding Prison and Prisoners in a doomsday type scenario. In this mini series you will get Big Herc's take on what life would be like in a Doomsday Scenario.

Question 5:
In the prepping/ survival community people talk about "shit hitting the fan" meaning the absense of the rule of law (essentially anarchy), preppers imagine a mad max world that in the absense of law enforcement society would be run by warring tribes and gangs this seems very similar to how prison is organized. Do you have any thoughts on this?

Tune in to find out what Big Herc has to say about this!

A Very Clear Reminder That Stun Guns Are Not Good For Self Defense | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Feb 19, 2018
Stun guns are not good defensive tools. Many people use the words “stun gun” and TASER interchangeably, but they are NOT interchangeable terms. Stun guns use electrical current to cause pain over a 1-2” area; the TASER uses barbs to create a path over 12” for neuromuscular incapacitation and overrides control of muscles. Stun guns are not good defensive tools and this shows a good example of why.

Playing the Back

Published on Feb 23, 2018
Sometimes you have to play the back to get ahead because the people around you don’t want to see you win. It’s alright to say that the business isn’t yours so that you can get more business. Being the man behind the curtain is many times the best way to roll. For more on life coaching check out www.bigherc916.com and subscribe to this channel.Facebook https://www.facebook.com/bigherc916

Mom and Daughter Prove Untrained, Unskilled People Can Defend Themselves | Active Self Protection
Active Self Protection


Published on Feb 25, 2018

These two ladies have gone quite viral on social media for their bravery. To me, they prove that untrained, unskilled people can defend themselves with firearms and that a firearm is a very useful tool for people to have, even if they’re not highly skilled. That said, let’s learn some lessons so that if we’re ever in a similar situation we have a high skill level for more margin for victory!

Bad Choice Leads to Full Donnybrook | Active Self Protection

Want to see me use it? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s6jDi...

It amazes me how fast something can escalate from a single bad decision. One bad choice here (and it was a doozie, don’t hear me wrong) leads to aggravated assault!
