Do you know how to prepare for self-defense in cold weather? Here’s your chance to learn from an expert!

This week saw record-cold temperatures in parts of the U.S., and we still have a couple of months of winter to go (at least!) Ever thought about how this changes your training?

It’s cold out there! Well, to be honest it’s pretty normal here in Oregon, but the east coast has already seen some seriously cold and snowy weather. Not many people go out training this time of year, and that’s actually a bit of a problem: because the cold, and the clothing you wear to deal with that cold, affects how you access and operate your defensive tools.

As I said, I live in relatively temperate Oregon and don’t really have much exposure to seriously cold weather or protracted snow events. Luckily, Bob Henckel over at  Modern Service Weapons does — he lives in the northeast U.S., where (as he puts it) they have “6 months of cold weather and 6 months of not quite as cold weather”. He’s written a really good article about all the considerations you need to make when thinking about self defense during cold weather.
