Conditioned Response provides the principles, practices, and training for staying safe, armed or not.
Personal protection is often viewed as a set of physical actions or techniques. Though that is true, under the intense stress of a survival situation, maintaining your mental and emotional composure is your first priority.
Why is that so important?
Regardless of the physical tactics you practice, the danger of becoming overwhelmed by fear/panic/stress present in a real-life encounter is REAL. The ability to remain balanced and composed is what allows us to utilize our physical tactics.
In order to access our physical tactics, we must be composed enough to do so. Everyone “freezes” and our training is purposed to minimize the amount of time you remain “frozen” so you can access your practiced movements and safely escape.
Overwhelmed → Fear/panic → Frozen → Victim.
Conditioned Response is built around Principles, not techniques. This matters because conflict is fluid and each of us has strengths and limitations to our physicality. By following Principles, you can practice the actions and movements you are capable of doing.
Why not just rely on a gun? After all, you are providing Permit to Carry/CCW training.
The quickest path to “level the field” when size, skill, and experience are tilted remains the firearm.
- What happens if you can not get to your gun? – Hint: Very Very likely.
- What if you get to your gun and it does not stop the attacker? – Hint: Very Likely.
- How will a jury* view my actions?
*under none of the stress and fear you experienced, with 20/20 hindsight, and jurors that may disagree with 2A.
