Self defense tools play a crucial role when it comes to being prepared for survival situations. Whenever there is a serious emergency people tend to lose their minds and act irrationally. Criminals invest plenty of time preparing to take advantage of the unaware & unprepared during these times of desperation. I see it in the lame stream media as well as the violent acts caught on CCTV being studied by law enforcement. If you have not addressed your self defense preparedness, then I have news for you.. You are not prepared!
There are quite a few options when it comes to being prepared to defend yourself and your family. Firearms are a go-to choice for most but it certain scenarios, hand to hand combat is a must. We see it daily in our streets as well as present day U.S. Marines reporting back from battlefield. In order to be ready for any SHTF scenario that will involve physical conflict, we need to train and train hard regardless of our weapon(s) of choice. Being well versed in various weapons is certainly a plus but mastering the weapons that you choose to carry with you is a must. If you have not trained with a particular weapon and trained often, do yourself a favor and put it in your dresser drawer or it may end up biting you in the ass during a SHTF situation. I may sound harsh but it is all from the heart which stems from experience.
Today I am reviewing the American Tomahawk CQC-T Combat Tool. This piece of equipment is more like a piece of art. It’s construction, designers’ attention to detail and destruction power makes this tomahawk a valid choice when it comes to self defense in a survival situation. The best piece of advice that I can give you if the price tag is in your budget would be to train hard and when you are done, train a bit more. The more that we practice with our tools, regardless of their application, the more that these tools become an extension of our bodies. When it comes to the various nuances that this tomahawk has, personal practice becomes even more of a critical factor. So much can go wrong during any conflict occurring in emergencies, make sure that you tip the scale in your favor by being as familiar with your American Tomahawk as you are with your toothbrush.
