Batman is not the only one who needs a utility belt.

Hey hey hey, we’re back for another exciting adventure here on the Chaotic Navigation podcast. I am the Alaska Outlaw and today I hope to be your guide as we shoot the shit about the magic tool belt that we all need to develop in the engagement of building our self-defense strategy. A couple of weeks back we talked about the paradigm shift the think more tactically with Mark Booher, as well a couple of weeks before that Jenna Ashley reminded us about adding a situational awareness to our everyday activities, as well as a legally concealed firearm. These are just a fraction of the toolbelt necessary for getting and staying safe.

Thank you for that, what’s that I hear?

Ah yes, the infamous mailbag. All right, what do we have this week?

Q1 - Frank from New Jersey kicks the party off with his question “What would you recommend for tools that we should keep at the ready?”

Q2 - Bonnie from Oregon asks “we hear a lot about weaponizing ourselves using self-defense for protection. Is this the best option?”

Q3 - Gary from Texas asks the next question “What would you recommend for teenage girls leaving home for college?”

Q4 - Tina from Florida follows that up with “I’m a smaller female, what tools are recommended for my situation?”

Q5 - Mike finishes out the set with “with the addition of small children, are their additional considerations?”

Great questions to all those who sent them in. If I didn’t get to your question, sorry about that, but don’t worry, I’m sure we’ll touch on this topic again as its really relevant to a requirement for survival.

Before we get after it today, I’d like to make sure that, for those of you who seek peace and harmony or help in making sense of life, be sure to check out the Alaskan Ulfhednar podcast at After 30 years of spiritual searching and discovery, I have arrived home. Check out my theories of finding peace and harmony, with a true understanding of co-existence and universal love. Some great stuff for you there. 

Each week we look at a different facet of what being prepared looks like in the real world of every day. It is absolutely awesome to be back with you guys here for another adventure of discovery and obtaining the superpower of common sense. Today I want to put a new lens on the old eyeballs and look at the topics with a different perspective.

As I mentioned in the opening, today I want to look at the utility belt that we should have for keeping ourselves, family, and friends safe. Today we’re going to look at three major areas

  1. Awareness and situational visibility
    1. Movement Zones
    2. Distractions
  2. Personal, physical systems
    1. Mechanical or physical
    2. Engaging hand-to-hand systems
  3. Weapon systems
    1. Undefined weapons
    2. Defined weapons
  4. Putting it all together in our super-duty official Batman utility belt.
    1. Constantly engaged
    2. Caution and concerns

As always my friends, I am honored and humbled that you have chosen to spend this time listening to me. I deeply appreciate each and every one of you. Being prepared provides each of us with the confidence for successful survival. We mentioned before, and will certainly say again, that survival is a 90% mental task, but that 10% of physical resources is critically important. By having confidence and discipline, we can and will survive. Remember to be strong, be safe, and keep your head on a swivel… Peace
