Learn the secret skills of an ex-IDF Special Forces operator that will keep you safe and prepare you for any situation - from a street mugging all the way to a full blown global catastrophe!
By reading this book and learning the skills and practical techniques, you will have taken a great step toward keeping yourself and your loved ones safe.
Over the past few years, the saying “be prepared” has perhaps been overused, and its original meaning diluted. Kind of like “look both ways before crossing the road” or “broccoli is good for you.” But if you watch the news, or read the papers, you begin to realize how important it is to “be prepared,” as our safety and way of life is so often threatened by crime, riots, and terrorist attacks. In these situations being prepared to take a split-second decision and the right know-how can save you and your loved ones from serious injury or worse.
This book will help you get ready and prepare for any situation, so you and your loved ones can stay safe. In the following chapters, you will find plenty of advice and useful techniques to defend yourself from an assailant, intruder to your home, and more. However this book has a broader purpose, as it will also give you all the information and battle-tested skills you will need in order to form a tactical defense team and survive a global catastrophe, as well as the techniques and tactics needed to stay alive in a combat zone and help your family, or a close group of people, train together to form a well-defended, thriving community.
My name is Roy Shepard and I’m a former IDF (Israeli Defense Forces) Special Forces Operator. During my military service, I took part in countless missions behind enemy lines and later trained young cadets as a Master Sergeant. I specialize in weapons training, stealth and camouflage, and Krav Maga. I’ve been in active reserve duty for the past 20 years and spent much of that time formulating and implementing defense strategies and drills in military bases all over Israel. Highly trained in martial arts, I specialize in Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, Aikido, and Russian Systema—with both hand-to-hand combat and melee weapon handling. I am also an expert marksman with both close-quarters and long-range weapons.
The IDF is one of the most effective militaries in the world with proven strategies and tactics that have kept Israel safe for the last 70 years. The harsh reality is that Israel is a small country surrounded by hostile nations that have been intent on destroying it since it was formed in 1948. The IDF has defended Israel in eight full-out wars and fended off many incursions and terrorist attacks. The vast tasks of the IDF span from search and rescue missions to preventing and containing terrorist activities.
This advanced guide will teach you some of the skills and techniques used by the IDF Special Forces Operators to help keep you safe, including:
Observation techniques to help you become aware of the smallest disturbance. What to do if caught in the wake of a natural disaster—e.g. tsunami or hurricane—where there is chaos in the streets and looters, raiders, and rioters looking for an easy target. How to defend and protect your home. Escaping restraints and rope techniques. Step-by-step self-defense tactics to protect yourself from an assault—whether that’s a fist, a chokehold, a grab, or a weapon. Camouflage, stealth, and communications. How to survive on the road with survival driving techniques. How to build a team and a thriving community. How to use tools and weapons.
This book will prepare you for all of those and more!
