Maxwell Daily Dozen for Joint Mobility
To Be a warrior is to be self-possessed, centered, acutely aware, and empty. It is a very particular state of mind, one which focuses on the moment, free of doubts and idle speculations. "In a world where death is the hunter, my friend there is not time for regrets or doubts. There is only time for decisions".

What to do When the Ammo has Gone: Dry Fire Drills
I Do Not Choose To Be A Common Man

By Dean Alfange
 
I do not choose to be a common man. It is my right to be uncommon— if I can. I seek opportunity not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled by having the state look after me.
 
I want to take the calculated risk; to dream and to build, to fail and to succeed. I refuse to barter incentive for a dole. I prefer the challenges of life to the guaranteed existence; the thrill of fulfillment to the stale calm of utopia.
 
I will not trade freedom for beneficence nor my dignity for a handout. I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat.
 
It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid; to think and act for myself, enjoy the benefit of my creations and to face the world boldly and say, "This I have done."

Why every man should be strong


Dogma be damned. The relentless will drop what's not working, while the weak-willed have to fit into cliques, label themselves, and adopt cult-like thinking

Simple Things versus Critical Elements from Uncle JAK
What are you training for self defense or a martial contest?
PT for the Tribe from Mr. Mosby
I’ve said many times before that for creatures in Nature, getting through a day is very much an exercise in energy management. Investment measured against return. The Way of the Wild doesn’t hold it up as a good idea to expend valuable energy and expose the self to risk of injury or immediate death by attacking and killing out of such base sentiments as boredom or sheer malice, and defensive measures offered by the presumed “prey” are what hold potential attackers in check. Nothing in Nature meekly submits. It’s flight or fight, all the way!

“When a nation forgets her skill in war, when her religion becomes a mockery, when the whole nation becomes a nation of money-grabbers, then the wild tribes, the barbarians drive in... Who will our invaders be? From whence will they come?”

DTIVideos

In addition to our subscription Operator Series, I’ve elected to make  
available several free instructional videos on subjects I consider critically  
important in light of the current course of world history. 

We are saturated with viewpoints (sometimes conflicting), particularly with 
 regard to firearms training. I want to introduce correct mindset in a way 
 that will inspire, embolden, and encourage aspiring Operators in pursuing 
formal training from competent instructors. 

All free videos can be viewed on:

dtioperator.com  

Click on "Free Videos"

These are intended for unconditional sharing with friends, family,  
colleagues, and all others who may benefit

Current topics:

>Range Training Conduct, Etiquette, and Safety
>Legally Justified/Defensible Use of Force
>Talking with Children about Terrorist Attacks/Mass Shootings

More coming!

Of course, our subscription DTI Operator Video Series continues to expand  
and goes into much more detail, and I surely hope aspiring Operators will  
subscribe, but I think these free videos, intended for a wide audience, will  
stimulate critical thinking and inspire everyone to join us in our 
advancement and refinement of this Art.

Greetings All! Just finished up day one with Guro Dan. The best way to describe it is drinking from a fire hose. So now, I review my notes, update the site and have a simple dinner in my room with an amiable glass to wash it down. Get out somewhere while you can, adventure is where you find it.
