SWAT was formed in response to my need to understand and educate myself against becoming a victim.  From a very age I developed a love for martial arts. I studied several forms and would eventually become a fan of Bruce Lee and  his writings on Jeet Kune Do. I lived in Houston,  Texas for over 30 years. Of that time I have spent the last 15 years working for The Fraternal Order of Police. I worked mainly with Metro PD and HPD as their Lodge Manager. My day to day  conversations with Police Officers were usually related to the crime in our city. This fuelled my desire to find a way to simply and safely help  myself and others from being a victim. I learned several forms of fighting with the help of a personal trainer. Then life happened and I was diagnosed with a form of Lupus. This form affects the joints and made it almost  impossible to do what I really loved. So I had to find a new way with my limitations in mind.   I started reading and researching how to overcome my physical obstacles and still be able to avoid being a victim.  I’ve come to the  understanding we can overcome physical limitations and still be safe. it should not limit us to preventing harm. My objective is this Education people on how we can avoid becoming a victim. Understanding why criminals select their victims. Understanding the physical response on our body when we are in fearful situations and how to overcome that. How our brains reacts to fear and stress. And most importantly understanding the mental status of the perpetrator. Ideally we want a non physical solution to violence. How to de escalate potential threat with a  prebuilt set of responses so we don’t fall into the fear loop. It's a matter of arming ourselves with knowledge and for -thought so we can avoid bad situations or can out of them without any physical harm. I don't believe in fear based teaching. My goal is to have friendly and open conversation so we can help each other and learn from each other. Our greatest defense in life is knowledge so lets share it!
