Last week, we sent an email with a story about a horrible situation involving two young girls shot in a road rage encounter.

This week I want you to take 3 minutes and 49 seconds to understand an extremely important concept when it comes to your personal defense. The topic is presented in the video below by Rob Pincus, founder of I.C.E. Training and developer of the Intuitive Defense Shooting curriculum that we use to teach our students about using a gun for self defense.

Before we get to the video, I want to point something out that I think many people don’t fully understand. When we say “Warrior Expert Theory”, many people think to themselves, “Well I’m no warrior, how does this even apply to me?” You may or may not be a “warrior”. But if you are ever targeted as a victim by a violent attacker, you ARE in a war. This makes you a warrior, even if just for those few moments. What kind of warrior you will be will depend in part how prepared you are. This is why understanding how we should learn to respond to these kinds of threats is important.

The video is short, but the mindset described in those few minutes can take a long time to develop and understand. Take some time to reflect on your own mindset when it comes to your training, your education, and how you understand the very high stakes of a violent attack.
