Training for Personal Protection:
Lethal Force Institute
November 9, 2008.
Lethal Force Institute was founded and incorporated in 1981 by Massad Ayoob and Dorothy Ayoob. It was the first "threat management school" emphasizing responsible, advanced training in the use of defensive deadly force by private citizens as well as law enforcement and military personnel. LFI received a great deal of favorable press nationwide from its inception. It remains unchallenged as the premier school of its kind.
The StressFireT combat shooting system developed by LFI has been adopted into combat pistolcraft doctrine by the United States Army. Documentation of this fact is readily available, and readily visible with a glance at the Army's marksmanship training manual FM23-35. Some of LFI's advice on better control of a handgun under stress has also been incorporated as optional shooting technique by the elite US Army Pistol Team. Numerous police and civilian national champions have credited StressFireT techniques with their success. More importantly, countless police officers, soldiers, and armed citizens have credited their survival of violent encounters and their avoidance of tragedy to what they learned from LFI.
LFI courses have been taught throughout the United States, including Alaska and Hawaii, and also in Canada, Great Britain, South Africa, Switzerland and Venezuela. Attendance at, and demand for LFI training remains high in comparison to the rest of an increasingly competitive and rapidly growing handgun training industry.

Most self-defense programs recognize the tremendous potential of improvised weapons as viable defensive tools. Unfortunately, much of what is taught concerning their use is either incomplete or misguided, untested theory. To really employ improvised weapons in personal defense, you need more than James Bond-style tricks; you need sound tactics, planning and preparation, environmental awareness, and a solid training methodology. Renowned personal-protection instructor Michael Janich presents just such a plan in FOREVER ARMED.
A complete mini-system, FOREVER ARMED presents three basic combative tactics that can turn almost any object that can be wielded with one hand into a potent defensive weapon. Concentrating on simple gross-motor-skill movements, Janich's system reveals how the "physiological potential" of these movements can generate both offensive and defensive tactics that can be used to defend against many common street attacks. In addition to the tactics themselves, Janich teaches a parallel series of reflex training or "flow" drills that not only accelerate the learning process, but also allow you to safely increase the intensity of your practice to simulate the adrenalized stress of a real street encounter.
In addition to one-handed weapons, FOREVER ARMED also presents straightforward, easy-to-learn tactics for the use of two-handed weapons and takes a critical look at improvised flexible weapons, projectile weapons, and shields. Janich also teaches you what to look for in a good improvised weapon and how to ensure you always have one available, even in weapon-free "non-permissive" environments. Along the way, he separates fact from fantasy and dispels the many myths of improvised weapon use.
"Improvised" doesn't mean that you don't need a plan. It means that you need a sound system of skills and tactics that you can use to transform ordinary objects into powerful defensive tools. FOREVER ARMED provides that system and deserves a prominent place in your training library.
