Becoming Violent: Mastering the Art of Controlled Aggression
Send us a Text Message.We train, we prepare, and we hope that we never have to use the skills we've been developing. Yet, sometimes, violence isn't just the answer... it's the only answer.The question is, do you have what it takes?  If the moment were to come that you had to put your skills to the test to protect your self or your family, could you make the stuff you've learned work?Let's be honest; unless you're in the military or law enforcement, most of us don't have jobs where violence comes as part of the job description. So, how do we reconcile the skills we hone with the stark possibility that, one day, we might need to employ them?This episode is not about glorifying violence; it's about addressing the questions we often whisper to ourselves. Can we truly prevail in a lethal encounter?  Will our training translate into effective action when it matters most?Join us as we explore the psychology, training, and ethical considerations surrounding the mastery of violence. We confront the doubts that linger in the minds of civilians and provide insights that go beyond tactical strategies.Links we discussed in the show: - Impact of Visualization on Performance - Tim Waid's PTK-SMF websiteSupport the Show.If you'd like to support the show, please consider a donation at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/pearlsnapLink up with us:Website: https://www.BarritusDefense.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebarritusFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheBarritus(Some of the links in the episode show notes are affiliate links.

Warrior Mindset: Preparing for Hard Times
Send us a Text Message.I don't have to tell you that we're living in dark and perilous times. Each time I look at my news feed, it seems as if everything that's great about America is circling down the drain of decadence and social decay. It reminds me of that quote from author G. Michael Hopf:"Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. And weak men create hard times."If we are to escape the hard times that have been handed down to us by these weak men (and women), then the only path forward is the one through which we unlock the inner strength within ourselves and forge our own path to greatness - true greatness. It is the warrior's path. It is long, it is hard, and it is fraught with peril. But, honestly, it's the only viable option open to us now.Plato wrote that "the ideal citizen must be a scholar-athlete, a man of thought, and a man of action."And just what are these pillars to becoming this scholar-athlete that Plato spoke of? Well, in this week's episode of PST, that's exactly what Alex and I are gonna get up all in that business!So, pull up a chair and sit a spell.  Hang out with us in this week's installment of Pearl Snap Tactical!Support the Show.If you'd like to support the show, please consider a donation at https://www.buymeacoffee.com/pearlsnapLink up with us:Website: https://www.BarritusDefense.comInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/thebarritusFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheBarritus(Some of the links in the episode show notes are affiliate links.
