The Art of Self Reliance

Apr 19th, 2012No Comments
The Art of Self Reliance is coming to FMI in May!

The Art of Self Reliance is a series of online and live training events covering self defense, emergency prep, survival, and personal development.  We’ll be offering everything from interactive seminars to hands on, extreme, training events, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to be jumping back into the training world full force!  My travel schedule has limited my live training events and the natural solution is to expand online.

So what exactly is Self Reliance?

In a nutshell, Self Reliance is gaining the knowledge, skills, and self confidence to successfully face the crises and emergencies that each of us encounter.  Accidents, crime, manmade and natural disaster are a part of each of our lives already, and depending on your views on our national debt, resource scarcity, and the violence brewing on our southern border, things could get even more interesting in the next decade.  The beauty of self reliance is that the skills you learn preparing for one incident carry over to your ability to respond to another.  The Art of Self Reliance is not about fearfully stockpiling food and ammo for the end of the world, in fact it is not about fear at all.  It is about confidence and your ability to keep your family safe.  In many ways, the Art of Self Reliance is not about “self” at all, it is about community, because in any large scale disaster communities recover faster than isolated individuals.  Remember the old saying, “You can’t help others if you can’t help yourself.”?  So we start with individual Self Reliance and end up creating community Self Reliance.  Powerful stuff!

You’ll learn about firearms, self defense, food and water storage, planning and prioritizing, emergency kits, and more.  You’ll have complete access to my military and wilderness experience, as well as the experience of our guest speakers and instructors.  As we go, I’ll be adding videos, planning guides, and other resources to the site, so check back often.  This is going to be a fun experience for all of us and I look forward to meeting you!
