This is the time of year for Holiday Safety and Security Tips. Rather than give you a re-hashed presentation of the same ‘ol tips, I thought this year, I’d give you a collection of links to thoughts from a variety of resources. There’s a ton of great info linked below, rather than try to digest it all, maybe bookmark this page and come back for a new link every few days. Or, maybe assign various links to your family members and then you can all take turns sharing highlights at meals over the next couple of weeks.

Training’s Two Person Armed Defense. A Team Tactics Course specifically designed for the everyday person who spends a lot of time with other people who are armed.

…I knew 99% of the audience would believe that there was a HUGE difference because at home those attending the NRA Show would believe that they could “always” have a firearm in their home, but realizing that there would be times where that wasn’t possible or practical outside of the home. The nature of the response is a tactical issue, not a philosophical or strategic one… but, that isn’t always obvious.
Gun Free Zones are an everyday reality for many people. Hardly anyone is entirely immune to them. If you have kids in school, if you fly on commercial aircraft, if you travel overseas, if you drink alcohol, if you travel frequently in the U.S. and don’t carry a badge, and/or if you don’t let your gun …
A four part series on taking a Comprehensive Approach to Self-Defense; Meant to outline a complete plan for those just getting started and also be resource for those already involved in Self-Defense Training to re-evaluate their current approach and make sure they weren’t missing anything.
2016 is going to be a great year, I hope you get to take advantage of some of what I.C.E. Training Company and I will be offering!
