Knife Fighting for Self Defense


So I got a challenge for all you hardcore martial artists and MMA guys! I want you to give your wife, teenage kid, or someone you know who is substantially weaker than you physically a permanent marker and have them pretend it’s a knife. Take your shirt off and tell them to come at you and see if they can mark you up. Pretend that its life or death and whoever loses has to do dishes for the next month! I got a good feeling your wife or kid will probably jack you up before you get them and you will be scrubbing those pots! So what is the purpose of this drill? This drill isn’t suppose to teach you anything more than how effective of a force multiplier a blade can be. Its legal almost anywhere you go in the world and you can take the average person and give them a little training with a blade and I guarantee you they will be deadly. It takes years to become proficient with hand to hand, but an amateur can become deadly in short amount of time with a blade in their hand!

This is why I emphasize that people become proficient at knife fighting. Not only is a knife a great self defense weapon, but if you have taken a survival class with us then you know that it is also your most important wilderness survival tool also. There really is no reason not to carry a good blade, even if you only use it to open your mail. And preferably a fixed blade if you can manage it, and the minimum should be a good folder. You should probably shoot for a 3-6” blade and try to get the best you can afford. Cold Steel makes some fantastic products and they have proven steel as well as phenomenal folders. Bet you can’t beat it for the money ;). More expensive is the TOPS brand of knives but they have some amazing blades also.

Now don’t get me wrong, I’m the kind of guy that would spend several hundred dollars on a good blade. But honestly, many of the cheaper products on the market are awesome. I personally carry a TOPS Field craft fixed blade ($140) in the woods and I carry a smaller blade in the city as my EDC. A karambit is a good choice for defense or something with a good utility edge for survival would definitely be my top choices. Either way, don’t be stupid and go get yourself a good blade with some training on how to use it.

Please don’t be a statistic! Instead be that guy/gal in the media that defended yourself successfully in that showdown against the bad guys. And definitely don’t be that person that gets lost in the woods and doesn’t bring a blade! I have pity on the people that are un-prepared that weren’t informed but none for those that have been told. But if you read this far then you have no excuse. Your informed! Always carry and be prepared for anything and you’ll feel more fruitful as a result. Guaranteed! Awareness training is a gateway to higher spirituality so let awareness and knowledge be paramount in your life. Semper Paratus!

Huge Instructor Course Announcement, 2 Phase System

For the last 15 years, we’ve been running the 45-day survival instructor program with only one option. If you wanted to get certified, you had to do it all in one setting. And over the course of those 15 years, I’ve received thousands of phone calls from people telling me they can’t take off work that long to take the program. And after all these years, we have finally caved and given in to customer demands to allow the course to be broken up. So we devised a

The Longest Lasting Overlanding Truck Tires

Overlanding (off-road truck driving) has rapidly emerged as a thrilling adventure for those who seek to traverse untamed terrains and distant landscapes. To embark on such journeys successfully, one needs reliable gear, and at the forefront of the equation is the right set of tires. Amongst the sea of options, the Yokohama Geolandar X-AT stands tall as the best overlanding tire, providing the perfect balance of performance, durability, fuel efficiency, and versatility. At least in this humble Overlander’s opinion. I’ve been running them for years and absolutely love the longevity and capability of these tires for every kind of adventure. In the video below, you’ll see that I got over 75,000 miles out of a set of these and that’s dang good for an aggressive tread tire. In this blog, we’ll explore why the Geolandar X-AT shines as the ultimate companion for overland explorers.
