New Texas Open Carry Law

Texas legislators voted for open carry

Texas will soon allow open carry! Even though this is a triumph for Second Amendment supporters, I will continue to carry concealed. As a martial artist (3rd degree Black Belt Kaju Kenpo), I was taught not to advertise my skills. Let the would-be assailant be surprised when he ends up on the ground as the recipient of an unarmed response.

If you need to pull out a firearm to protect yourself or others, let the “bad guy” find out then that you are carrying. Continue Reading →

New Firearms and Self-Defense Website In Progress

Most of us don’t want to spend their lives in a state of fear. We just want to live our lives fully in the pursuits we choose–family, hobbies, work, sports, etc. We want to feel free and open to friends and neighbors.

Just be aware and following simple safety precautions avoids many risks.  Walking in a crowded well-lit area just makes sense. Leaving an area where something bad may happen is just good thinking. Even having plenty of gas in the tank has helped avoid stress and possible injury.

Here at Eschaton Defense Training, our goal is to teach everyday people skills that will keep them out of many bad situations. And ways of dealing with trouble when it cannot be avoided. Our various courses are taught by certified experts in their respective fields. Classes include:

  • Avoiding common risks. Some call it “street smarts”, others call it plain common sense. But without always being  suspicious, edgy, or “keeping your guard up”, you and your family can lead a safer life. Eschaton’s Awareness Training will arm you with concepts and simple actions to keep you out of harm’s way.
  • Defensive Firearms Training. Despite what the media portray, the most dangerous cities in America also have the toughest anti-gun laws. Why? Because law abiding citizens follow the law and are therefore unarmed when encountering a criminal with a firearm. Additionally, people are taught to fear firearms and everyone who owns them.
    Eschaton instructors will train you to safely handle a fire arm. We offer courses for using a Pistol, Shotgun, and/or Rifle in a defensive situation. We train people how to shoot well. But also impress upon our students the seriousness of discharging a weapon even in a self-defense situation.
    In addition to learning how to shoot your firearm, we teach you how to safely handle, store, and maintain this tool.
  • Unarmed Self Defense. With only your body, you can fend off an attacker and get out of a dangerous situation. Self defense and fighting should not be confused. Fighting is about dominating an opponent. Self defense is about dealing with a situation so you can escape. Taught by black belt instructors, our self defense course teaches you basic debilitating moves to get you away from those who mean you harm.

Learn to defend yourself on your own schedule

We know you lead a busy life. So we will come to your home or work to teach you the non-shooting portions of our defensive gun classes. The shooting portion takes place at a local firing range. The range course also includes a range safety instruction so later you can practice on you own with confidence.
If you already have a fire arm our NRA certified instructor will teach you how to use it safely and effectively. If you do not already have a firearm we will aid you in selecting the right gun for you.
