If you are not reading Ed’s Blog http://edpoint.tumblr.com/ then you are missing out on some rather insightful content in the arena of urban survival.
I am not talking about “Zombie Apocalypse” bullshit, I am talking about skills and ideas for those who work in an urban environment and especially those who live or work in high crime areas. I frequent areas that at times resemble Blackhawk Down in the summer season and am always looking for any tips, tricks, or techniques that might give me an advantage if faced with violence.
Ed is as near as I can tell from the blog, involved in law enforcement in Mexico, and if your head has not been completely inserted in your rectal cavity for the past decade or three you will be aware of how dangerous that country can be, and doubly so for a cop. Ed teaches blade work and knife defense, improvised weapons and escapology, which given the terrain he operates in and the kidnapping and abduction rate, could be a life saving skill.
We are dedicated to giving our readers real world, useable skills and Ed’s blog is just that.
