Breaking Down my Response to The Attempted Home Invasion / Burglary – How Did I Respond and Why?

Breaking Down my Response to The Attempted Home Invasion / Burglary – How Did I Respond and Why?

Last week, in the middle of the afternoon, two guys attempted to gain entry into the house I was in. 

  • Time: 1:15pm / it's a sunny summer afternoon
  • Nepharious Duo: 2 males in their 20's or 30's
  • Body Frame: Lean – They didn't look healthy
  • Attempted Crime: Trying to enter the home uninvited
  • My first impression: 2 “Meth Heads” / unsophisticated burglars trying to break into a home to steal property or money.

Listen now to learn their method, and how and why I responded the way I did.
Then let us know what you think I did right, what I did wrong, and what I could have done better.

The Self Defense Channel is about Reality Based Self Defense Training.
Our goal is to bring awareness to Self Defense Training, what works so that you can defend yourself and end the conflict.

Reality Based Self defense training is enlightening and fun. But being in a real world encounter without knowing self defense is something you never want to repeat!
