Your Most Powerful Weapon

Using your mind to stay safe

In a world where terrorist attacks, active shootings, and physical violence are the new normal, how can you keep you and your family safe without a firearm or knowing martial arts? What if you already carried an effective weapon with you, every day, and only needed to learn how to use it? Your most powerful weapon – your mind – is at your disposal 24/7. It doesn’t need a permit or batteries, and never runs out of bullets. Carried with you everywhere, it can be deployed quick as thought – if you know how. Your Most Powerful Weapon teaches you how to: build mental toughness, control your environment, avoid a threat, defeat an attack, and control fear.
