GunCarrier is not just about guns, we're also intensely dedicated to safety. That's why we were so stoked to meet Jeremy Pollack, a self-defense expert who teaches a whole bevy of safety techniques when it comes to how to disarm a gun, how to handle a knife fight, how to increase your response time, and so much more. So we begged, pleased, and prodded him (though not very hard, this guy could break us in half) into doing a whole video series exclusively for GC.
Pollack is committed to helping people discover their own inner warriors and break through the fear-based barriers they've created in their minds. Each episode of our upcoming “Don't be a Victim” series will teach you self-defense techniques so you can defend yourself in any situation, with anything and everything. Throughout the series, you'll learn knife defense, how to disarm a gunman, and how to use random items such as a belt or stick to defend yourself.
Take hold of Coach Jeremy's 20+ years as a Martial Arts instructor, and Don't be a Victim!
