Foundations of Personal Protection & Family Defense – Parts 1 & 2
When people consider personal protection and family defense they usually think about buying guns and ammunition.  The natural tendency is to first think in terms of ownership of hardware – more, bigger, better, faster, newer, extensive features, etc.  However, by and of themselves, ownership of things will not keep you safe.  In classes that officer Phillips teaches he leads first with the importance of developing the software that controls the hardware.  With excellent software (in a persons’ head, heart and finger tips) he can get stellar performance out of the most simple and basic of equipment.  This is not a discussion on how to become the next Rambo.  This is about what you need to know to get your personal protection and defense of the family right, and for the right reasons.

James Phillips has a deep respect for the law and upholding it from a legal and constitutional basis.  He understands and promotes personal and family preparedness responsibilities to deal with various kinds of emergencies.  He is regularly asked to instruct private and organizational groups on topics of personal rights, personal safety, firearms safety/skills and emergency readiness for all types of disasters.  He is a 3rd generation preparedness and survival instructor.
