I read an article about a man legally carrying his firearm on a bus. He had sit and listen, as a man who was less than a foot away spoke terrible things about the NRA and gun owners. He said things like “The murderous NRA and bloodthirsty gun nuts are causing our schools to run red with blood.” Meanwhile, the legally carrying citizen sat there with his lips sealed, knowing that speaking up to defend himself, and the rest of the red-blooded Americans who carry firearms, would only be made to look like the ‘bad guys.’
As a Self Defense Instructor who understands the place of guns in Self Defense, this makes me chuckle a little. It’s sad that people think this way about a tool for Self Defense and Self Preservation.
Everyone should legally carry a weapon on them, in the event that someone should ever threaten their life! Krav Maga is our last resort weapon, but before Krav Maga, we have other tools! At FearLess Nation in Trinity, FL, we put into practice our training with all forms of Self Defense tools! It isn’t a joke to us, and it genuinely bothers me, when people speak out against law abiding, legal gun owners.
Self Defense is Combat Training, be it on a Civilian, Law Enforcement, or Military level. If you want a chance at being able to defend yourself, you need to be proficient in more than just hand-to-hand combat, but in hand-to-weapon combat and weapon-to-weapon combat. Weapons include, but are not limited to: firearms, knives, batons, hammers, screwdrivers, hats, rings, etc. Join us for Krav Maga or Combat Kali to experience weapons training, and feel more confident that you truly know how to defend yourself! The first step to knowing you can do something is trying it, so take the time to educate yourself. Visit your local gun range, fire a gun, and see that it’s no more than a tool. Come experience Combat Kali, learn to use weapons, and see that they’re no more than tools.
