Suspect in Dallas police chase that ended on Love Field runway indicted on federal charges

As we can see, a defender in the car might have stopped this car jacking nut altogether! When you think of your self defense, it isn't always where you might think you have to defend yourself. A self defense weapon (defender) should be handy in your car too! I would suggest a more aggressive tool like a Defender 2 or the like. Don't give a car jacker a chance to destroy your day or your family!!!!

Suspect in Dallas police chase that ended on Love Field runway indicted on federal charges: "

Michael BrowneA federal grand jury has indicted a carjacking suspect who led police on a wild August chase that ended on a Dallas Love Field runway in August.

Michael Laurence Browne (right), 46, of Dallas faces one count of interfering with security screening personnel, according to the U.S. attorney's office in Dallas. The indictment, which is posted below, alleges that Browne knowingly assaulted an airport security employee with a dangerous weapon (his truck) when he drove through a fence and nearly hit the guard, the U.S. attorney's office said.

Browne also faces charges in a string of violent robberies throughout the Dallas area committed in the weeks before his August 19 arrest.

If convicted of the federal charge, Browne faces up to life in prison and a $250,000 fine. He remains in the Dallas County Jail, where his bail is set at $870,000.

Car Stops and Violent Crime Control: Crime in America.Net

Although this isn't a "defender" or a "self defense weapon" story I thought it was good for all of us to read. Self defense and womens self defense comes in many flavors and colors. Just remember that when or if you ever get pulled over. A good article!!!

Car Stops and Violent Crime Control: Crime in America.Net: "One of us was operating a government vehicle (a fancier version than most) in a high-crime area and was pulled over by the police. The officer explained that he had not come to a full stop at a stop sign; an exaggeration at best.The officer asked him to explain his presence in the neighborhood. He pulled [...]"

Defender Newsletter for June is up!

Hey all, I just finished the defender newsletter for June 2010. In it I talk about self defense videos, the Berlin wall, and where to get FREE online martial arts training. I want to thank everyone for their kind words about the newsletter the the growing site. Our Self Defense Weapon is really growing and is around the world now, keeping people safe. Let me share one email...

On the left is the Berlin wall and a Clear Defender 1... here is what he had to say...

Attached is a picture of me taken 3 days ago holding my clear Defender 1 in front of what is left of the Berlin Wall. This was the last stop of a trip that also took me to Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania - all in the company of my trusty Defender 1. The clear one is the Boss! No one even notices it. And after carrying it in some seedy places, you really realize the psychological edge you have over anyone else - especially if you have seen what it can do ;-)Kristijonas

Cool huh!!!! Note how the defender has "empowered him" and he walks without fear!!! Very cool....

Well the link to the newsletter is here:

Also, with Fathers day coming up really fast, consider our fathers day gift package:

With the economy the way it is, and I should write more on this but suffice it to say there is a lot of violence out there so be safe and always carry your defender with you!

4 Surprising Facts Burglars Already Know About You and Your Home

Well most of us have defenders or self defense weapons in our home and on our body. Here is an interesting article about burglars that I ran into while doing some research. I hope you all enjoy it...

4 Surprising Facts Burglars Already Know About You and Your Home: "The reason who most homeowners do not take adequate steps to protect their home security is the prevalent belief that a robbery only happens to 'other people.' If you believe that you'll never become a crime victim, it is time to protect yourself."

What to Do When You Have to Walk Down That Dark Lonely Street

Clearly adding a self defense weapon "defender" would be a good thing. However the following article is worth the read. Womens self defense is important and close to my heart so please read this and pass it on!

What to Do When You Have to Walk Down That Dark Lonely Street: "As women we are taught from a young age not to walk alone in the dark or cross through poorly lit parks. We fully agree, however sometimes find ourselves exactly in that situation. Having lived in many large cities over the years, I have had my share of experiences with those situations."

Attempted kidnapping reported in West Covina

Excellent! Finally a simple fight back that changed the whole thing going down... way to go! You see, you don't have to be a crazy person about your self defense... just a few simple moves, rinse and repeat! In this case only one kick did the trick. I wish she had a self defense weapon!!!

Attempted kidnapping reported in West Covina: "SV05-KIDNAP composite.JPGWEST COVINA - A teenage girl escaped a would-be kidnapper Wednesday after kicking him in the groin, police said.
The incident occurred about 4:45 p.m. as the 16-year-old girl was walking home from school on Cortez Street near Prospero Drive when she was approached by a dark blue, late-model Toyota Camry, West Covina police Officer Eddie Flores said in a written statement.
A man inside the car asked the victim if she needed a ride, the officer said. When she replied that she didn't, the man walked up to her, grabbed her by the arm and began pulling her toward his car.
The victim tried to push the man away and he slapped her in the face, Flores said. The girl then kicked the man in the groin and ran away.
The failed kidnapper got back into his car and drove west on Cortez Street, he added.
The suspect is described as a Latino man between 30 and 35, about 5 feet 11 inches tall and of medium build, police said. He had brown eyes and brown, wavy hair and thick eyebrows. He wore a black, zippered hooded sweat shirt and baggy blue pants.
Anyone with information is asked to call West Covina police at 626-939-8557, or the anonymous tip line at 626-939-8688. Tips can also be sent via text message to 847411.

New article about self defnese and Chelsea King

I'm so upset with this Chelsea King murder that I had to write an article about what we need to know for our self defense... at a minimum. Please take a look..

Master Peter Brusso

Monday, March 01, 2010

Might she still be with us if...?? San Diego teenager Chelsea King, might still be with us if she had carried some from of self defense. At least she might have had a fighting chance! I used to live in Poway where she is from, and walked around lake hodges many times. There seems to more teens missing from the area as well! It drives me crazy to think that maybe a simple tool like the self defense weapon might have been carried along on her run and she might have had a fighting chance; things might be different then they now appear. My heart goes out to the victim and the family. This crime was a discussion point throughout my day and I wanted to remind us all that you self defense needs should be thought about BEFORE you need them!

I went for a short hike this weekend and saw others walking this very deserted trail, all alone, and out in no where. What if they were attacked? A few had walking sticks but do they really know how to use them for their own self defense? On my martial arts website I have DVDs available for a walking stick and how to defend yourself: hanbo is what the Japanese call a walking stick... Also, if you are running or walking in remote area's you should have something to help defend yourself... for example a self defense weapon, a knife, or pepper spray. Don't go out where you might get attacked without some preparation. I know its hard to think about it but look at this poor family and what they have to deal with now?

Here in California weapons are frowned down upon. You just are not supposed to carry one but rather rely on the police for your protection. Lets face it, they can't be everywhere we go and most likely not in these remote places. Not to say attacks don't hit you in a civilized location, i.e., a parking lot or even at the mall. So, what I'm saying is take your safety first and foremost NOW and look at what your options are; do something to protect yourself, your loved ones and your family! Finally, if nothing else get a Defender 2, learn to use it and carry it with you when you go out to these remote area's to exercise or site see! Don't be the next victim!!!

Defend Yourself! You Have 2 Choices When it Comes to Self Defense - A Chance, Or No Chance at All!

This is an interesting article that I thought I would pass on. It does expose the issue of taking your safety seriously, personal safety, womens self defense, or just your basic self defense. Granted he is trying to sell something but if that something can save your life... its worth it. Just as in my Self Defense Weapon... its for sale, it works, gives you a fighting chance and easy to learn. Yes, its for sale. Most good things in our life come to us at a price. What is your safety worth? Your life worth? It all has a price. So does death. I choose to live and protect myself and my loved ones. Enjoy the article...

Defend Yourself! You Have 2 Choices When it Comes to Self Defense - A Chance, Or No Chance at All!: "People have different beliefs about whether or not they could ever be attacked. Basically, you have 2 choices when it comes to self defense. 1 of these choices gives you a fighting chance - the other gives you no chance at all! The purpose of this article is to give you both, an ex-cop's perspective on the subject - and to point out the secret of survival in a real-world self defense attack!"

We have the self defense weapon February newsletter up and now available for my blog readers. Lots of cool stuff about the defenders, the men who stare at goats movie, the instructors micro-sites, our sizzle video and more. You can get the newsletter by clicking on the link above or the picture to the left. I hope you enjoy! Master Peter Brusso

This article is new and covers the defenders and much more! It’s an interesting read as it covers many good things about inventions. Other people who are inventors should find this article interesting too. It covers the self defense weapon in addition to other invention topics of mine (Peter Brusso). I hope you enjoy the new article…

Great way to take away a gun with a self defense weapon!

This technique works so well!!! The bad guy can't wait to give you the gun! The self defense weapon is pressed against the small bone in the thumb. First, as usual the four weapons laws apply 1) clear the angle of attack, 2) control the weapon, 3) disarm the weapon (which this clip shows using a Defender or Predator), and then neutralize your opponent... in this case held at gun point until help arrives. Paige Brusso does a great job on this clip. This clip was part of a much larger shoot thus the time code...

New article about me but does include the Defender

Here is a new article about me that includes the Defender or Predator as seen in the movie "the men who stare at goats"... Here is the link
