Hi Guys and Gals,
Matt from Lincoln Tactical here…I’ve wanted to post a blog on Self Defense, and James sent a quick post in.(you can read it at the bottom of my post). I thought it was cool, because I know the person that he wrote about. I’m going to keep this short, because we are freakin balls to the wall busy.
As far as self defense goes…It’s good to have at least a little bit of training, of course the more the better. Having some self defense under your belt is kind of like…(you are the concealed weapon), and then to carry something like a Glock19 on top of that, you’re double trouble for anyone who is threatening to harm you. There are many different choices of Self Defense or martial art forms to study and practice. A lot of times dangerous confrontations or skirmishes happen within three feet of the parties involved. The FBI has statistics that let us know the average gun fight is within 3 feet of each participant. Many forms of Self Defense teach on how to disarm your attacker in one to two quick moves..
When you take Self Defense courses, not only do you learn how to protect yourself and kick-ass. You also learn how to become more aware of your surroundings, you learn about respect and discipline, and it keeps you in great shape. Your life is the most important thing you own. It is not crazy or unreasonable to seek out training to make sure that you continue to live.
So Pat Miletech used to come out and watch my band (BurntMcMelbaToast)…I know…(shameless plug) play when I lived up in Davenport, IA. Pound per pound one of the strongest men I’ve ever met. He’s a really great guy to hang out with! Here’s a short review for Self Defense and Pat:
My name is James Lis I am a Federal Agent with the Department Of Energy where I teach Defensive Tactics for my section. I also teach DT at the Sheriffs academy here in Amarillo Texas. I am an instructor in Advanced Officer Survival certified under Former World Champion Pat Militech. Pat Militech teaches basic control and positioning using effective technique and minimal strength to control the person or break contact and employ a different tool. Pat utilizes American wrestling and Mixed Martial Arts to teach the officers how to end a situation without getting into a fistfight and hurting the subject.The school is not very long and is taught by Pat himself. He has a love for teaching and desire to see the Military, Law Enforcement Personnel, and you and I succeed. This man has made a Legacy for himself preparing the worlds best athletes and making champions out of them. For a department with not a lot of time to break away and go to schools or a huge budget to afford them they should really look into taking part of this Era of Law Enforcement Survival.
