Front Sight Monday Blog: Videos #7-11: What Zimmerman Could Have Done IF…

August 19th, 2013  

Over the last week I have sent you a number of videos demonstrating how ruthlessly and rapidly criminals attack what appear to be untrained, unarmed, and helpless victims. 

Over the last 17 years, Front Sight has provided a thought provoking and information-filled classroom lecture entitled Problems 2 and 3: Potential Criminal and Civil Liability Following the Use of Deadly Force. For 17 years we have told our students EXACTLY what will happen to them if they ever shoot an unarmed teenager, even if that teenager is trying to kill them, and they are totally justified in shooting.

Well here are a few videos that show you what happens when you have the mindset and some basic skills to go up against the criminals, street punks, and society’s low life. This is what George Zimmerman could have done and possibly should have done, had he been trained to defend himself as the TOTAL WEAPON against armed or unarmed opponents whether he had a gun or not.

Watch these videos and then take advantage of my asking, pleading, begging, and finally arm twisting Tim Larkin to offer a payment program on his amazing, Target Focus Training At Home DVD training package! I also got him to throw in some never before offered bonuses just for Front Sight subscribers… and I THREW IN A FRONT SIGHT LIFETIME CONCEALED DEFENSIVE HANDGUN MEMBERSHIP so YOU can become the TOTAL WEAPON.

What are the common characteristics of all of these individuals who take on multiple opponents?

1. The victors are mentally tough individuals.

2. They have basic fighting skills.

3. They are aggressive and take the fight to their opponents.

4. In every case, they do not stop until their opponents are out of the fight or do not want to fight anymore.

(Also notice how quick their opponents are to stop fighting as soon as they realize they do not have an easy victim!)

And these individuals are not even using the easily mastered, Target Focus Training techniques of striking the most vulnerable and immediately accessible areas of the body that their opponents present. You will have better and more devastating skills than what you are witnessing in the videos through Tim Larkin’s at home Target Focus Training DVD’s. Get them here at:

So having the mindset to defend yourself against thugs who take delight in maiming, raping, and killing is the first step. The second step is having the right tools and training to defend yourself and those around you.

I understand there are times when even the most dedicated, concealed carry permit holder may not have a gun. There are also jurisdictions where obtaining a permit to carry a concealed weapon is extremely difficult.

So who do you want to be? The victims you have witnessed over the last week or the victors you are watching today? Of course you want to be the victor and you also want you wife and kids to be the victors. So take advantage of my asking, pleading, begging, and finally arm twisting Tim Larkin to offer a payment program on his amazing, Target Focus Training At Home DVD training package, AND I got him to throw in some never before offered bonuses just for Front Sight subscribers…

This was not an easy task because Tim already told me that his fantastic DVD offer had sold out at the discounted single payment price and he did not want to offer any more DVD packages at such a low price.

But because you and your family need to be trained to handle any situation even when you don’t have a gun, I twisted Tim’s arm, and that is a hard thing to do to a skilled fighter like Tim!

Maybe it was my smile (and the gun on my hip) that convinced him, but after quite a lively discussion, he reluctantly agreed to offer his fantastic At Home DVD program to you on a monthly payment program but he will only give you a 10 Day Window to take advantage of it.

Then I had the nerve to ask him to throw in a special bonus he has never offered before and we sparred for another few minutes over that request, but he finally agreed to give you more than he has ever given anyone else on any package he has offered!

Why am I telling you about how hard it was to get Tim to provide this amazing offer, on payments no less, and including never before offered bonuses?

Because Tim Larkin’s TFT at Home DVD program is the absolute best in the industry and I want to make sure ALL of Front Sight’s subscribers and their families have the opportunity to have it and train with it.

So if you missed the Front Sight endorsed TFT “Killing Machine” At Home DVD Special because you needed payments, I went to toe-to-toe with Tim Larkin to get you a monthly payment plan, and never before offered bonuses, But You Have To Jump On It In The Next 10 Days!

Don’t miss it. This is your only chance.

Tim does not have to offer a payment plan because anytime he has released such an offer he sells out at the single payment price.

He is doing me a personal favor extending this payment program to you so take advantage of it and purchase it here…

And if you want to read what some of your fellow Front Sight students have to say about Tim Larkin’s Target Focus Training, At Home DVD Package see this…

Dr. Piazza,

I took your endorsement of Tim’s materials seriously and the DVD’s just arrived at my place outside of Philadelphia.

Needless to say, I’m like a kid with a new Christmas toy, staying up late to study them.

So far, they have revealed the gap between my understanding of the true application of violence in a life-saving way.

This is a similar situation as what I experienced on my first day at Front Sight. I was excited to be there, yet “humbled” by the knowledge gap I had.

Lucky for us, there are those like you and Tim who have provided a path to levels of competence in critically important subject matters.

Just wanted to say, Thank You!

You too will be thankful to have Tim Larkin’s At Home, Target Focus Training DVD’s, but you only have 10 days to get these DVD’s on a 12 month payment plan…

Here is what another Front Sight student and member who took advantage of the offer last week had to say about it:

Dr. Piazza,

I read your newsletter with your first TFT endorsement.

I must say that I was skeptical at first, but when you said, “TFT is to unarmed combat what Front Sight is to a gun fight”, I thought, “If the founder of Front Sight is saying its that good, them I’m in”. I wasn’t disappointed.

I devoured the DVD set. From the first DVD to the last, these guys are the real deal. No fluff. No BS. No Martial Arts mentality. No bowing to Grand Master Fubah.

Like Front Sight, they focus only on getting you quickly and efficiently to the point where you can be effective in a real life situation. Their teaching approach is remarkably similar to Front Sight. They, like you discard all the fluff and BS and refine the essentials. The instructors are trained experts themselves.

This is hard core training to do violence with your bare hands, feet, elbows, any tool you have, without the drill sergeant mentality.

I actually find the Front Sight and TFT to be quite complimentary. While I can use my AR-15 or my Tactical 12 gauge for home defense, or my trusty .45 ACP for my personal carry, there may be times when I can’t access those weapons quickly enough. In those cases, TFT teaches me to injure the other person now, make him non functional either by fists, boots, knife or gun, which ever tool is the best option at the best time. At a minimum, causing an immediate injury will give me the 1.5 seconds I need to draw from concealment and fire two, well-placed shots to the thoracic cavity like Front Sight taught me.

It is fantastic.

And here is what another Front Sight student and member who took advantage of the offer has to say about it:

Dr. Piazza

I signed up for Target Focus Training’s offer and I’m working my way through the videos and books.

I gotta tell you, this program is indispensable and absolutely required stuff if you hope to fulfill your responsibility to beat the predators.

Tim Larkin’s method is simplicity itself. It’s how the predators do it.

Thanks big time for telling us about it!

If you want to know WHY I recommended that EVERYONE associated with Front Sight take advantage of Tim Larkin’s (at home) Target Focus Training Self Defense DVD offer, then read what one old, fat, out of shape guy had to say…

Dr. Piazza,

I want to report an incident which took place in Rome.

We had toured the city on the open-top buses, and just enjoyed a glass of wine at an outdoor cafe near the bus terminal.

We were walking toward the taxi stand and I noticed a small group of ruffians lounging around the entrance to the subway. As we walked along two of them left the group and began to follow us and close the distance.

When one of them reached into my back pocket I grabbed him by the neck, rotated through and bounced him off the wall of a building. I put him on the ground and ascertained that he had nothing of mine in his hands. I looked around for his companion and discovered that he had run off. (My significant other was holding her walking stick ready to strike at either of them).

Now let me describe myself… I am 57 years old, 5′ 11″ and 330 pounds. I am in lousy physical shape, as I work behind a desk and eat too much and don’t get enough exercise.

My significant other is older than I am, and neither of us is likely to run away from a dangerous situation successfully.

How did I become an old, fat, out of shape killing machine? Well the old, fat, and out of shape part took years to perfect, but sometime in 2006 I became aware of Tim Larkin and Target Focus Training…

I was interested in the philosophy expressed on the TFT web-site.

Two things impressed me immediately. The first was the concentration on function, not form. The objective is to cause a disabling injury to your opponent. Second, the training is available to people of every size, gender and physical condition. The size or condition of the opponent is of secondary importance because the physiological reactions to the TFT strikes and kicks are involuntary.

If one learns to deliver a disabling injury and follows through, no opponent can prevent one’s successful self defense.

I ordered the DVD set and it arrived promptly.

Tim Larkin made the point that criminal violence doesn’t depend on skill or practice, but on inflicting injury on a victim. I watched the DVDs every night for a week and realized that this information was useful and of vital importance.

The sessions are well described, the instructions are clear, and the practice shown is illustrative and helpful. I learned a good deal from this abbreviated set of DVDs and was determined to get more TFT training.

When the sixteen disc course became available I immediately sent for it. It took me a couple of weeks of evening sessions to watch the whole series, which essentially condenses the three day live course into about 16 hours of instruction.

This set of DVDs is terrific!

The whole course is presented logically, with the sections on asocial violence, legal responsibility and post incident considerations thoroughly handled.

Each section on different types of injuries is concisely covered, and the demonstrations are just as real as when you are attending the class. No one is seriously injured, thanks to the quality of the instruction, but some of the instructors and mastery class members come away with bruises. You watch real people practicing the moves, being coached by first class instructors and learning to strike, rotate and follow through.

I have re-watched almost every one of those discs and find each time that I learn more and reinforce the training. The technical side is thoroughly and carefully explained and the time devoted to practice and coaching makes it clear how the training works and why it does.

I cannot endorse them highly enough, and would cheerfully buy them again at full price, which is remarkable for someone as frugal as myself.

I like to travel and to walk around the various cities we visit both in the U.S. and abroad. In the past I have been apprehensive in various neighborhoods and wondered how I would react if we were confronted by bad guys.

I regarded many younger larger and probably stronger individuals as threatening, especially in unfamiliar neighborhoods and unknown cultural situations.

I stayed aware, and tried to appear confident but I was uncertain what I would do if violence began.

With the benefit of the TFT training DVDs I know that, while anyone can be outnumbered (and TFT is excellent on dealing with multiple adversaries) I have the tools to protect myself and my significant other against an attacker.

Since viewing and reviewing the TFT DVDs I look at bad guys on the street as potential Targets, not as Threats.

It is hard to convey in words how profound the transformation has been.

The TFT training DVD course is extremely thorough, dealing with everything from the nature of violence to the physics and physiology of inflicting injury to dealing with armed attackers and multiple adversaries.

I do not believe that anyone can watch the whole sixteen hours or so and not come away prepared to defend him or herself effectively from violence in our society.

I’m a great example of how anyone of any age or physical condition can learn how violence works, and how to counter it by causing injury to an opponent.

I can’t think of a better opportunity to learn how, than these TFT training DVD’s and want to thank you for bringing this information to the attention of your Front Sight students.

You are right, an unimaginable amount of freedom and self confidence is gained through knowing how to incapacitate a violent opponent within 5 seconds or less. Take it from me, you are also correct that everyone should own this amazing DVD collection!

Do what John Rapinchuk did and hundreds of Front Sight students have done– and have thanked me for doing… Gain a profound transformation in your ability to walk the streets in command and control, regardless of your age, size, or physical shape-armed or not!

I recommend that YOU and EVERYONE associated with Front Sight take advantage of this amazing offer to receive Tim Larkin’s (At Home) Target Focus Training DVD Package, PLUS never before offered bonuses!

Here it is:

I mean it. I have never endorsed ANYONE in the training industry before, but I am endorsing Tim Larkin and his (At Home) Target Focus Training DVD Package because what Front Sight is to Firearms Training, Tim Larkin is to unarmed self defense. No exaggeration. He is the real deal.

I’m as serious as a gun fight here.

EVERYBODY reading this e-mail should take advantage of what Tim Larkin is offering… EVERYBODY!

I speak from experience as I know Tim personally, have had him train my own Front Sight instructors, and I have ALL of his materials in my at home training library!

The fact that he has made his best package of at home instructional DVD’s available for you on a payment plan is nothing short of astounding!

Get it here:

I’m not blowing smoke. This is serious stuff.

EVERYONE, no matter what your age or physical condition can very quickly learn and use Tim Larkin’s Target Focus Training techniques.

So here is your chance. Don’t blow it because I doubt Tim will ever do this again and you won’t ever see me endorsing another trainer to my list of subscribers.

Take advantage of Tim Larkin’s (At Home) Target Focus Training DVD Package by going here:

You will be glad you did and you will be as equally impressed with Tim Larkin as I am.

Again, I want YOU to take advantage of this offer and then share the DVD’s with your immediate family so they too can command their immediate environment even if they do not have their gun with them.
