Decide to Survive

When dealing with a criminal confrontation, the sole goal is survival. It's not about how many punches you can land, how many "points" you can score, how tough you are or how long you can go toe to toe. It is about survival and escape in whatever forms that may take given the situation presented to you.

To help you with this concept we give you the acronym for SURVIVAL as utilized by our military.
