Medical Training: You need it

Many people in the self defense world  look to the gun as the end all be all of the personal defense scenario. As if it is a special talisman that will ward of evil. In truth the gun is a very effective tool for use in a unlikely and very narrow set of circumstances. What is way more likely is the use of some sort of medical skill. How often have you been in a situation where you needed to dress a wound or react to a medical emergency? Quite a bit more often than you have participated in a gunfight I would imagine.

I emphasize with my students the need to train on the skills needed when the threat is outside the context of a shooting solution. Medical skills are paramount and essential. .
