To be clear, we do not support the group behind this nor their overstated headline conclusion that a gun does not provide self-defense.

There is way too much evidence to the contrary.

However, this is a staple of our Cobra-Defense training with Chris Sutton. Cobra is the official self-defense system of the Martial Arts Teacher’s Association (MATA). We do concealed firearm demo scenarios are true eye openers.

The common sense message is that the more training you get the “better shot” you have at succeeding at anything.
