The best preparedness blogs out there
I was reading an article titled The Naked Marketing Guide to Getting Dramatically More Traffic and Subscribers the article asked what was the last headline to get your attention. The article said take that title and create a similar title for your next article. Thats when I had a marvilous idea, naked self defense. A good title and a good subject. What do you do if your without your self defense impliments?
When you have no means of protection your faced with three options become a victim, run and let someone else become a victim, or own the encounter and send the bad guy where he belongs (where that is we will leave up to you but theres options). If you choose either of the latter you better get started working on it. How are you going to be able to dominate the encounter or run like an Olympic athlete?
I really hope you choose to dominate the encounter (thats what winners do). There are several ways to work on your naked self defense skills. I suggest you start with some physical strength training. Then you can find a martial arts school, a good self defense or firearms academy that does hand to hand training (there are some listed on the links page), or buy self defense dvd’s and practice that way.
If your going to go the do it yourself way I suggest you learn the fundamentals with a instructor then get the movies and do it. It is best to have a partner to work with. The best dvd’s I have found are Systema the Russian Martial Art. My first venture into the Systema world was with an amazing instructor Sonny Puzikas. I spent a week in an intense seminar learning the core fundamentals of the art. Then when I returned home I got some dvd’s so I can continue my training.
The art or method of training you choose is not as important. What is important is that you do it. You must start training if you ever wish to become proficient. Procrastination will never get you to reach your goals. You must start now and work hard to reach your goals with naked self defense. Doing without is not something we like to think about. We have conveniences all around us. If you work hard and train now you will never have to do without in a self defense situation.
Motivation seems to be everyones problem when it comes to these things. Most don’t have time to dedicate to a two or three night a week martial arts class. You have the time, you just need motivation to go and make that time. I have this happen a lot. I love self defense training, shooting, and working out. I just have a hard time staying motivated to keep up and do it. I am always pressed for time, working, blogging, and building sites takes nearly 13 hours a day. But I still can find the time to do other things, its about sacrifice. I have gave up tv, youtube surfing, and playing on social media sites. It can be done, you just have to make the choice for yourself. Having a partner that will train with you can also help in keeping motivated.
So today let’s do something to get started in our naked self defense training. Stay tuned to GunPreparedness they will be expanding on this and turning it into a ebook. The estimated release date is Thanksgiving 2012.
