Pre Assault Preparation

How we live everyday, interact with our environment and the individuals that transition though it can often determine our needs to utilize defensive measures. Simply stated, awareness can prevent violent conflict. At STG we teach our students to think ouside the gun. Awareness, avoidance and deconfliction can often be the key to non-violent conflict resolution. If the fight is imminent, then survival is paramount but we can help win your encounter by proper environmental management.
