I picked up some new brain wrinkles at the Hebrew Hogger event this July. Here are two little tips that I hope you enjoy, […]

In February of this year, we hosted Rob Schoening of LHGK and his “Bullets, Blades, and Bandages” trauma class (our review). Rob led a great class and had a bunch of interesting things to say. One of the things I found thought provoking was breaking up a larger trauma kit into smaller ones. Each smaller “bleeder” […]

3×3 Review: QSI Training Emergency Trauma Care Class

When properly and narrowly defined, almost anyone can be trained to administer effective trauma care in case of an emergency — violent or otherwise. The Emergency Trauma Class taught by Erik Pakieser of QSI Training was a great introductory class for people unfamiliar with trauma care, and perhaps completely unfamiliar with fight focused training.

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. Ages ranged from 11 to […]

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 […]

Nature abhors a vacuum. – Aristotle I find the following to be true: I will attempt to pack any container to the point of overflow. I find this to be especially true in building a trauma kit. For the purposes of this article, a “trauma kit” is an assemblage of medical tools meant to deployed to […]

The She-Shepherd and I recently flew to the east coast. I’ve made it a habit of taking a trauma kit of various sizes and shapes with me, and have taken to carrying a tourniquet in my pocket at work. I wanted to take something with us on our travels, but I wasn’t sure if I […]

I carry at least a tourniquet and Israeli battle dressing on me any time I have my EDC rifle around. Depending on the bag, environment, and attire I may carry an independent gun shot wound trauma kit, a smaller personal first aid kit, or just a tourniquet and battle dressing. My preferred setup is to […]
