A little over two months ago, we hosted Rob Schoening from LHGK for his Bullets, Blades, and Bandages trauma care class (our 3×3 review). One of the many good things about the class is that Rob brought several tourniquets for students to try. Most agreed that the SOFT-T Wide had the best windlass, but a […]

I believe that everyone should take two classes : a trauma care class and a pre-fight awareness / unknown contact resolution class. Last weekend we hosted Rob Schoening from LHGK, and he taught two trauma care classes. Over 20 people attended, with varying levels of self-defense and medical care experience.

I squeaked out just over 300 hours of professional, fight-focused training this year — 304 to be exact. Adding in lecture-only classes brings my total up to 320.

| March 13, 2015 | 5 Comments

I’ve written this before, and talked about it in my YouTube videos, but you absolutely must train with the gear you’ve purchased. Most of the time I’m talking about firearms or other self defense tools, but today I’m going to discuss how two training sessions changed the type of tourniquet I carry. The Concern I […]
