What Self Defense Has to Do with Civil Unrest

Some people are predicting the end of the world this year. Whether you believe that or not, I’d like to give you some of my personal observations.

There are many top economists who think the U.S. economy is going to crash. Yes, I know the government is painting a rosy picture and everything is looking up. But, what do you expect them to say? I prefer to look at things realistically.

What would happen if the U.S. or global economy collapsed? Banks would probably be closed. Grocery stores will either get cleaned out, like they do in disaster situations. Or they will be full of food, and no one will be able to buy any. Face it, if the banks are closed, and people can’t get money, then they can only buy food with the money they have in their wallets or purses. What happens when that money runs out?

There are a lot of possible scenarios. But to get some clues, all you have to do is look at what’s happening in other countries. Particularly in Greece. There are riots and clashes with authority. This is because world banks have forced austerity measures on the nation, and the government has cut back on entitlements and retirement payouts. People don’t like it. They’re mad, and when people are mad, they take to the streets.

If you think this won’t happen in this country, all you have to do is look back to the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. If you think that is an isolated incident and won’t happen to you because you live in an affluent neighborhood, think again.

If you have what someone needs, they may just come and take it from you.

What does all this have to do with self defense? Well, when all hell breaks loose, the police are going to have their hands full, and 911 won’t be working. You and your family are on your own. If you are the head of your family, you better damn well know how to protect yourself and the members of your family. That’s where self defense comes in.

Knowing essential self defense techniques can save your butt when the unexpected happens. You could be at the grocery store and a riot breaks out. Don’t think it will happen? Just think back to Black Friday, 2011. People being trampled, pepper-sprayed, and punched, all for a chance to buy cheap, foreign-made junk. If a crowd will do this for electronics, imagine what they’ll do when they want the food you are carrying out of the grocery store.

You can learn simple, effective, essential self defense techniques, that you can apply to a wide variety of situations, that will work under stress. And you can learn them in 60 minutes from the privacy of your own home.

Get a copy of 60 Minute Self Defense. It’s reasonably-priced and just might save your life if you or your family get’s caught in a mob.
