EPISODE #80: Ever Elusive Excellence and The Magnificent Power of Discipline
August 9, 2016
Duration: 28:26 | Size: 25.98 MB
This week, as I return to the helm from “paternity leave” following the successful birth of a healthy baby girl, I want to launch the 2016-2017 season of Guardian Broadcast and Concealed Carry University production with… a challenge.

It is a challenge in the perspective we have on what the truly beautiful institution of concealed carry is… and a challenge that seeks to inject youth and energy and vitality in your approach to carrying a handgun.

As this summer closes and as the autumn begins (the greatest time of the year to re-commit to sharpening our Guardian’s Edge), this is a challenge I am pleased to accept alongside you.
EPISODE #79: REQUIRED READING – Where Fight and Flight END; Where Training Must Kick In; HOW TO (and WHY to) Condition Your Draw-Stroke
June 14, 2016
Duration: 48:33 | Size: 44MB
Perhaps the most important Guardian Broadcast yet — it’s long, but please take the time on this one. It will stand as the current Broadcast for 2 straight weeks.

IS YOUR DRAW STROKE CONDITIONED YET? Has it been *properly* conditioned? Most people’s have not, while many who have conditioned theirs have done so incorrectly (you’ll see why). Both of these situations are potential disasters waiting to happen.

In this week’s Broadcast, you’ll learn why and how to condition yours correctly, and you’ll see firsthand what a tremendous advantage it is to make the time to do this. All this, in addition to a great multitude of other self-defense conclusions and tidbits that will hopefully simplify your idea of what effective self-defense is, and how to employ yourself more effectively to that end.
EPISODE #78: The Top-Down View of Self-Defense as a Guide to Excellence
June 7, 2016
Duration: 16:13 | Size: 14 MB
At its core, self-defense is a relatively simple concept: you put in force and pressure, and your odds of surviving an attack go up. Learning and Teaching where and how (and when and when NOT) to apply those things is the goal of CCU, and sharing that knowledge is our mission – all without losing sight of the “big-picture,” global view of self-defense. Today, we tackle the very real obstacles we face to that end in such a sensationally-charged niche.
EPISODE #77: Memorial Day – Honoring Veterans and Exposing the Horrors of War
May 31, 2016
Duration: 57:02 | Size: 39 MB
In honor of Memorial Day and Veterans everywhere, I take a look into some utterly riveting readings from World War 2 memoirs, from various perspectives. I also share my own personal encounter with a Vietnam Veteran who received the Medal of Honor.
EPISODE #76: Predictability – The Root of The Guardian’s Demise
May 24, 2016
Duration: 11:07 | Size: 7 MB
“Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” – Benjamin Franklin. Is privacy an essential liberty? It most certainly is, and as with other essential liberties, neglecting its importance comes at great cost.
EPISODE #75: Being Prepared – A Lesson You Don’t Want to Learn the Hard Way
May 17, 2016
Duration: 31:27 | Size: 21.6 MB
“Preparedness” comes with a relatively negative connotation in today’s world: “You’re paranoid,” or “You don’t need to do that; that’s what emergency services are for” are the common responses to seeing a person focus on being ready for a reasonably predictable outcome. Those dispositions are all well and good until you learn the hard way that sometimes you and the resources you arrange to have available to yourself are the only things you can truly count on to be there when you need them most.
EPISODE #74: Do You Know How to Breathe?
May 10, 2016
Duration: 19:18 | Size: 13.2 MB
In modern society, it is all too easy to forget how to do things that our ancestors knew intuitively, and without effort. Perhaps the most critical of these skills is the simple act of proper breathing. It may sound asinine, but learning how to breathe is well worth the investment, and it can have a disproportionately positive influence on your quality of live AND on your ability to defend yourself.
EPISODE #73: Should the Elderly Carry Concealed?
April 26, 2016
Duration: 36:25 | Size: 24.99 MB
Is the sheepdog role a fleeting one? Should we ever lay down our swords and surrender our warrior mentality? These are some of the deepest, most intriguing questions we can ask, and it unearths one of the biggest reasons for our efforts as sheepdogs.
EPISODE #72: Part 3 of Series – The Founding Principles of the Concealed Carry University
April 19, 2016
Duration: 34:38 | Size: 23 MB
This is the final part of the defining “Founding Principles” series. Concealed Carry University is dedicated to being intentional and consistent in all that it teaches, and this series identifies those things with the important goal of being as effective as possible.
EPISODE #71: Part 2 of Series – The Founding Principles of the Concealed Carry University
April 12, 2016
Duration: 24:01 | Size: 16.5 MB
Every organization has a reason for being, or a mission statement. The Concealed Carry University continues to define its mission during part two of the Foundational Concepts Series. By identifying these core concepts, we can refocus our training and educational goals to align them with the harsh realities of self-defense.
