Surviving Self Defense

Not everyone wants to own firearms, but education in their safe use and secure storage can only be beneficial in a dangerous world.

The use of firearms as they relate to criminal violence is one of the important topics of our time. Opinions vary greatly and there is fear on both sides of the debate. At one extreme is the fear all guns are inherently dangerous and only capable of damage, either accidental or intentional. The opposite extreme fearing loss of perceived rights would see no restrictions, regulations, or limitations on firearms leaving to chance unintended consequences. We are on a search for the truth. Leave your emotions behind and bring only knowledge, logic, and an open mind to the debate. There is too much at stake for anything less.

Mission: The mission of Surviving Self Defense is to educate law abiding citizens in tools and tactics useful to reducing their exposure to physical and legal harm.

"When It Comes To Chokes,
​​​​​​​There Are No Tough Guys..."
If you are even remotely interested in jiu-jitsu, martial arts, or MMA then you need to take a look at this...

But the problem is that too many guys get the back but they can't ever seem to finish the fight from there. They might stay on an opponent's back for a whole round and NEVER sink the choke in.

That's why we made this...
