2 interesting articles

Cleaning up my computer, here are two blog articles I bookmarked om my Google Reader.

From the folks over at ITSTactical: a nice article on getting the ladies in your life prepared.

And from FerFAL - a nice set of tips to help prevent crime (rather than react to it).

Reality Check

Reality Check -, from the Expat Daily News blog for Aug 18, 2011.

Good article, along the same lines as what we try to stress here and at Yacht Security - be aware of your surroundings, don't succumb to paranoia and quit living.

Not much more needs to be said - but plenty more needs to be done.

Situational Awareness

Came across this post about Situational Awareness on Stratfor.

If the examples given in the article help you understand the concept better, or allow you to explain them to loved ones, it is well worth the re-posting.

Self-protection is not just fists, feet and conditioning the body. Mindset plays a very important part.

As an added benefit, if you are more aware, you will discover more wonderful things about the world around that you may have been missing.

Found this today, and feel it is quite to the point. Not just for ladies, either; for all who may feel the need for self protection.

He has written a companion piece (more for the boys out there) about fist fighting.

Been a while...

Sorry for the long time between posts here. Been busy with a new job, and all that stuff.

Still training, still doing TacFit Commando (just started the second month of my second run through). Seems to hit all the areas i want, just need to add in kettlebell work or pullups now and again. One of these days, I'll start in on the TacFit R.O.P.E routine - maybe in 8 months :-)

Feel free to email me at - let me know you are reading these random thoughts....
