We like to believe we can handle ourselves when faced with an attacker. It’s not a situation anyone wants to think about, but we like to think we could protect ourselves when a thug thrusts a knife in your face or pushes a gun into your chest.
The shocking fact is most people don’t. In this highly pressurized situation, most people crumble.
Because contrary to popular belief, when things go south we don’t rise to the challenge. We fall back to our best level of preparation… and for most that means NONE.
If you’re not prepared, you make mistakes.
Mistakes that don’t just leave you hurt… mistakes that could leave you lying face down in a pool of your own blood.
I’m sure you’ve heard all the scare tactics before.
I don’t mean to sound like a hyped-up news piece… but the truth is police report after police report points to the same thing:
Ordinary people get it wrong when dealing with violent offenders.
They lose it. They give in. They let their attacker control the situation.
They just don’t know how to deal with violence when it’s playing out in front of them.
In a moment I’ll share with you the THREE most common mistakes every victim makes that you need to avoid, but before that let me introduce myself…
My name is Mike Westerdal, SPC (Strength Psychology Certified). I’m a personal trainer, national best selling physical preparedness author as well as the founder of the internet’s longest-standing strength site, CriticalBench.com.
I’m speaking to you today not just as a training expert but as a father and a husband… who would do anything to protect his family.
You see, I learned something a long time ago about protecting yourself.
I used to get pushed around when I was younger. I spent years building up my body and becoming stronger. I got mentally and physically tough the hard way. As I got bigger, I learned to handle myself. Working in security, I learned first-hand how violence really plays out.
If you’re a police officer or serve in the military you learn to read a situation better than ordinary citizens. Active service teaches you what violence REALLY looks like.
You see, there’s a problem with how we see violence in this country and it’s why most people go to pieces when bad things happen…
WHY OUR “SNOWFLAKE” SOCIETY HAS
WEAKENED OUR RESOLVE AND GIVEN POWER
TO THE BAD GUYS
If you want to understand the root of all the problems with violence in this country, don’t look at guns. Don’t look at knives. It’s nothing to do with any weapon.
Instead, you’ll see the problem cowering like a scared little animal behind the sofa.
We’ve become a society of mentally weak wimps. Modern life no longer requires us to have the mental strength we need to hunt for food or fight for survival.
Back when I was a kid, we lived in a more physical era to put it mildly.
Certain problems didn’t get solved by calling a lawyer. Fists were the answer when things got rough… and afterwards both parties would shake hands like gentlemen.
Back then, violence didn’t frighten people as much. As violence has become less part of our everyday lives, when we do see it, it’s SHOCKING.
Nowadays, we can’t see violence without running away screaming.
I’m not saying we should go back to settling every dispute with our fists. I’m telling you this to explain why most people are left paralyzed when violence plays out.
But worst of all it leaves us vulnerable…
The Last Thing I Want Is For You To Feel Like You’re Living In A
World Ruled By Fear…
THAT’S WHY YOU NEED TO BE PREPARED
AGAINST THOSE WHO DO WANT YOU TO
LIVE IN FEAR
Your biggest weapons against fear are knowledge and preparation. And that’s why it pays to have the world’s foremost expert in preparing you for anything on your side.
Meet Mike Gillette, world renowned tactical trainer and fear management expert who has trained more elite agents and individuals in the art of handling “complex” situations than anyone else.
Mike is the embodiment of toughness. Mike Gillette was one of the smallest and weakest kids in his class who grew up in a household overwhelmed by domestic violence and substance abuse.
Yet, he overcame all this to become a REAL LIFE action hero.
Mike’s Curriculum Vitae or Resume Includes:
In-demand tactical trainer for elite government agencies – FBI, DEA, DHS and TSA.
An army paratrooper
A SWAT commander
A member of the Martial Arts Masters Hall of Fame
A counter-terrorism consultant to the Department of Homeland Security
He has over 25 different use-of-force and weapons systems instructor designations to his name.
A bodyguard to Fortune 500 executives and film stars, like Sylvester Stallone
It’s no word of an exaggeration to say that when it comes to “handling the situation”, Mike is untouchable.
And now I’m going to say something that will SHOCK you.
That all Mike’s hard-won experience, qualifications and time in the field cannot match what I consider to be Mike’s greatest asset.
By far Mike’s biggest – and most important –
gift is his ability to teach.
Put simply, there’s no-one else on the planet who has the ability to take someone – ANYONE – and show them how to become mentally strong and physically capable in record time.
That’s why there’s no-one else on the planet worth listening to on this subject other than Mike Gillette.
Before I introduce you to Mike, I need to get something out of the way and this is really important…
WHY ALL THE ADVICE ON HANDLING AN
ATTACKER YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN IS
Want to know what’s worse than walking around scared of EVERYTHING around you?
Yes, you’ve got it: walking around with the FALSE BELIEF you’re completely safe.
If you’re reading this and think you know what to do if you were attacked, think about this…
Where did you get your advice from? A YouTube video or article on the internet from a no-name “expert”? Or from tactical trainer and former bodyguard, Mike Gillette.
Who do you TRUST more with your life?
I’m not saying all advice out there is bad. I’m saying it pays to know WHO is giving the advice. Advice is easy to give, yet if it’s wrong… the stakes are higher for you.
I’m sick of reading B.S. information from anonymous keyboard warriors who know NOTHING. Who’ve NEVER experienced the shock of having someone push a gun into their chest. Who have NEVER felt the terror of a knife waved in anger at their face. Who don’t have the scars of taking on multiple attackers… and SURVIVING.
Mike Gillette has.
He’ll tell you it’s nothing like the movies. It’s dirty. It’s painful. It’s over in seconds. And regardless of the outcome… it’s going to be the worst day of your life.
Whether you keep your cool and live to fight another day… or end up face down in a gutter depends on YOU.
The problem is you’ve been misled. The wrong information could leave you dead. That’s why you need to know…
THE 3 FATAL MISTAKES MADE BY EVERY VICTIM
WHO ENDED UP DEAD IN THE GUTTER
Believing everything the bad guy tells you
Whatever you do, don’t listen to the bad guy. Believing what the bad guy is telling you is bad for your health.
“Do what I say and you won’t get hurt…”
You believe that? It’s one of the biggest mistakes you can make… Don’t believe a word coming out of a bad guy’s mouth.
Let me tell you, NOBODY is smoother than a career criminal. He knows how to manipulate you. He does it without thinking.
Of course he would. He practices all the time.
You can’t take his words at face value. You need to take action. Which leads us to the next huge mistake…
Leaving the first scene of the crime
Having worked in law enforcement, Mike will tell you there’s an important pattern with attack crimes you need to know.
There’s usually a crime scene “A” AND a crime scene “B”.
Let me explain. Where the attack starts isn’t always where it ends. If an attacker has a plan for you, most will want to take the victim from one location to another.
And, sadly, nearly every victim AGREES.
Here’s what you need to know. If the attacker tries to move you from one location to another, it shows they’re NOT in control.
He can’t control you or the environment…. that’s why you should NEVER go with him. If you go with him, something horrible will happen to you.
Denial about what is playing out in front of you
It’s crazy. Most people resist reality even when reality is about to KILL them.
Call it polite society, call it fear of looking stupid… people will watch a situation go south and not do a thing for as long as possible.
Here’s the problem. EVERYTHING in our society tries to suppress our intuition. We’ve no longer trust our gut. You know when something is going wrong. You feel it in the pit of your stomach… but you still try to ignore it.
DON’T! Learning how to reverse years of ignoring how we feel will serve you well. Intuition is your body’s warning system that something’s not right. If it’s goes off, take NOTICE.
Too many people are too concerned about the consequences of making a scene or mistaking the situation and overreacting. Sure, there’s the fear of being embarrassed but what if your intuition is right and you do nothing…?
If you’re reading this and thinking “this will NEVER happen to me” understand this…
YOU MAY NOT GO LOOKING FOR TROUBLE, BUT TROUBLE CAN EASILY FIND YOU
Good people don’t go to bad places, bad people go where good people are.
Again, I don’t tell you this to scare you. That’s the last thing I want. And I’m not peddling cheap fear tactics to get you to buy anything.
I tell you this because it could save your life.
If you’re worried confronting this means accepting the world is a bad place, don’t. But there ARE people who do BAD things in this world.
And they’re not just “on the other side of town” or “in a shady neighborhood”.
It’s a myth muggers hide out in dark alleys. Or attackers sit in bushes preying on women walking through the park. Just waiting for you.
We don’t make those mistakes.
People who want to hurt you or your family go where there are people.
That may be a ball game. A subway. A crowd. An event. A school. Even to the front door of your own home, like this violent predator in Manhattan (“In every case, the suspect follows his victims into their buildings once they open the front door…” )1
It is PREDICTABLE for them.
That’s why it’s shocking when bad things happen in your good neighborhood. Or places that are familiar to the victim.2
“I never expected it to happen to me,
and if it happened to me, I expected it
to happen somewhere else, not… in
that nice of an area”3
And it’s why advice that tells you to avoid those bad places is useless. You already KNOW to avoid those places. That’s called “common sense”.
It’s WORSE than useless. It’s DANGEROUS. Because it gives you a false sense of security that you’ll never get into trouble if you avoid trouble spots.
Once you understand the truth, it all changes. Knowing how an attacker’s mind works doesn’t make you just like them. It gives you an advantage OVER them.
Now you know why it’s important to learn from someone who really knows the lay of the land.
That someone is Mike Gillette…
THE #1 MOVE TO SURVIVE & DEFEND YOURSELF IN ANY SITUATION IS THE BRACHIAL STUN
It’s simple and easy to perform while creating a significant result and it’s something nobody is expecting.
No one protects their neck from strikes.
Plus you will be striking with your forearm which is a very difficult area for you to injure on yourself.
The target is the side of your attackers neck where you’ll find the bracial plexus (motor nerve) and a superficial nerve called the Greater Auricular Nerve.
When this area is hit it creates a nervous system stun that virtually shuts off your attacker’s body for a few seconds.
It’s a very serious technique. In some law enforcement circles this move is classified as a deadly force technique.
Only use this technique in self defense under the appropriate legal, ethical and moral circumstances.
The stun can last for 3 to 7 seconds and sometimes longer.
The Brachial Stun is a legit, one-strike knockout technique.
Here’s how to perform this move:
Step 1: Swing your forearm from the side with a slight downward angle into the side of your attacker’s lower neck.
You are basically whipping a relaxed limb horizontally into the side of your attacker’s neck.
Landing any part of the forearm will be effective and create a nervous system stun.
Step 2: Rather than letting your forearm bounce off your attacker’s neck you want to transfer more force by pausing at the end of the strike to let it sink in.
GIVE MIKE GILLETTE AN HOUR AND HE’LL GIVE
YOU ALL THE SKILLS YOU NEED TO DEFEND
Let me hand over to Mike G for a moment to tell you a story that effortlessly demonstrates the power of his learning technique.
It comes from his time training the cabin crew of United Airlines after 9/11 to show them how to tackle terrorists in light of the heightened threat.
Over to you Mike G…
A PERSONAL MESSAGE FROM MIKE
Thanks. Before I tell you the story of a lady called Lola, I want to make sure you fully understand this lesson. You see it’s a common misconception that knowing how to deal with violent behavior somehow means you accept it.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Violence in any form is unacceptable… but hiding your head in the sand and pretending it doesn’t happen or won’t happen to you is dangerous.
The transformation I’m about to describe isn’t just a physical change. It is a mindset change. Because once you understand the power of developing the mental fortitude to handle a situation you realize that…
Knowing this doesn’t make you more fearful. It frees you from fear
And that’s exactly what happened with this story of a lady named Lola.
During one of my counter terrorist training workshops for United Airlines, I first met Lola. In fact, I remembered so vividly the moment I saw her tiny, unassuming frame shuffle through the door into the training room.
You see, Lola was one of United’s most experienced cabin crew. She was 70 years old and an old-school customer service pro. Her whole career was dedicated to serving others and making her customers feel safe and comfortable. This was way out of her comfort zone.
I had a few hours to add a more muscular side to her. I had to show her how to identify and disable a possible terrorist threat.
A concerned manager took me aside just before we started and whispered under his breath: “Er… Mike, is this stuff you’re teaching safe? Is it safe for our people to train in this way?”
He said this, one eye clearly on sweet little Lola.
I smiled at him, knowing what was going to happen next.
Less than an hour later, I experienced something special…
Lola was bringing the thunder.
She had pinned a 25 year-old woman on the floor and needed to be stopped.
If Lola, a gentle, caring lady and grandma could learn to defend herself and more, in less than an hour, so can you.
What makes Lola’s story even more powerful is something else that she brought. You see, there were others in that room who were younger, or bigger, or more physically capable… but I knew right away they didn’t have the same fight as Lola.
And that’s because Lola WANTED IT. If you want to learn how to bring thunder of your own, you have to ask yourself…
How much do you really want to be THAT guy or girl who EVERYONE looks up to?
You see everyone says they want to learn to protect themselves.
Everyone says they want to do what it takes to protect their family and loved ones.
But when it gets down to it… you have to commit.
I can teach you how to become that person you want to be. The guy or girl who instinctively knows what to do when the going gets tough. The one person in the room who is cool, calm and collected when everyone else is losing it.
If you want to be that person, I can show you how.
But if you can’t commit – and I mean commit RIGHT NOW – you’re probably not ready.
As I’ve demonstrated knowing how to deal with an attacker has two parts: a physical side and mental side. Your success has the same two parts. Before we deal with the physical side, you have to be there mentally.
Is that you? Are you that person? Because if you are, let’s do this. I believe in you… and I want to give you all the skills you need.
Never before has a program delivered this volume of top-level training
designed specifically to help regular men and women of ANY age or
ability defend themselves so they can stay safe and get home
Whether you’re a college student, a 35 year old couch potato who’s never lifted a fist in anger or a 70-year old grandma, the minute you finish this program you’ll have the ability to SERIOUSLY hurt someone.
THE REAL LIFE SELF-DEFENSE PROGRAM

Mike delivers the program using ordinary people in realistic situations. They’re not trained in martial arts or fighting techniques.
They’re like you and I. And he transforms each of them into a dangerous weapon using only their body.

Understanding how to use your body as a natural weapon gives you an in-built advantage over an attacker. You will never suffer from a lack of preparedness.
As Mike says: “You don’t get to pick your assailant, they get to pick you…”. In this section, you’ll discover how to gain so big an advantage in any situation it doesn’t matter how big or tall your attacker.
You don’t need to major in martial arts to learn the art of the strike.

WHAT OTHERS ARE SAYING…
“SIMPLICITY COMBINED WITH EFFECTIVENESS”
SWAT TEAM LEADER APPROVED
Mike is one of the few who can walk the talk. His operational experience combined with his ability to transfer the knowledge, skills and abilities in his training to anyone, is second to none.
His methodology is sound and anchored in real world scenarios, not just theory applied in an untested environment. His system relies on key principles… that are simple, effective and easily recalled under stress which is what separates him from everyone else.
SWAT Team Leader (ret)
WORKS FOR ANYONE
Mike Gillette knows “danger”. In his line of work, there’s no room for error and a violent attack typically comes as a no-warning ambush that can only be survived by employing brutal, no-nonsense tactics that will stop an attacker as quickly as possible and not rely on strength, size, or a long record of previous fight experience.
If your goal is to truly survive a violent attack on the street, in a parking lot, or in your home – know that Mike’s fighting system is based on real-world experience (NOT “theory”!) and could mean the difference between going home to your family… or headed to the hospital in the back of an ambulance (or worse). Why would YOU settle for anything less?

REINFORCE A SURVIVOR MENTALITY
I absolutely love the REAL LIFE Self Defense program. When stress levels are high, fine motor skills diminish, tunnel vision occurs, and adrenaline spikes.
The self-defense movements in this program are simple, effective, and easy to remember during a hostile encounter. These videos will instill confidence, especially for women without experience in self-defense tactics, while reinforcing a survivor mentality to literally fight through an attack.
Women MUST watch “rape escape” to learn these esteemed defense techniques. I can not express the value and impact these videos can have on one’s life.
Michelle Di Capua
EASY TO LEARN & VERY EFFECTIVE
Mike Gillette is the real deal! He teaches the easiest most effective and safest way to escape any confrontation that you may get into. I highly recommend this program to every single person out there as these skills are essential for any human being of any age.

Many self-defense “experts” design their programs to show off how skilled they are. Mike doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone.

You get the whole self defense playbook in one hit and I need a promise from you to use your powerful skills in a responsible manner.
This ISN’T for you if you just want to learn how to kick someone’s ass. This ISN’T for you if you want to show off your strength. This program turns you into a weapon when you need it. Regardless of age, ability and fitness, fight off an attacker WHEN the situation requires it.
Before we go on, there’s a problem – and it may comes as a shock because…
EVERY OTHER PROGRAM ON THE MARKET
LEAVES YOU AT THE MERCY OF BAD GUYS…
BECAUSE THEY FAIL THESE TWO TESTS
No focus on understanding the psychology of an attacker
80% of defending yourself against an attacker has nothing to do with the physical. It’s psychological. Until you understand the criminal mindset, you won’t defeat them.
You see, it’s not a fair fight. If you’re mentally under-prepared, the attacker wins. They’re an expert. They’ve years of training to manipulate you and coax you down a dark alley or into an empty parking lot. They know how to control their environment.
And they rely on you not knowing this.
A program needs to start with understanding criminal psychology. Sure, you may learn a few clever punches and defense techniques.
Yet all this is useless if you crumble under the pressure of a bad guy tricking you into making a wrong move.
Some of these guys who show off their self-defense videos and books need to get a grip. The level of skill needed to pull off their basic moves is CRAZY for most ordinary people.
If your defense system requires more than a few hours to master, you don’t have a program.
The only techniques you will ever use are the simple ones.
They need to work for an ordinary person without prior training, technique or ability.
So even if you think you don’t have time to learn how to fight…
YOU DON’T NEED TO SPEND YEARS TRAINING TO
BE A MARTIAL ARTIST. THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED
TO KNOW INSTEAD
I’ve already spelled out for you what’s in the program. I’ve shown you how others have used Mike’s real world tactics taken from real situations.
I’ve demonstrated how the program will help you, no matter your age, fitness or ability.
As you will see, preparedness doesn’t mean mastery. You don’t need to spend hours practicing forms and moves every day. You don’t need to master skills that look great, yet mean nothing when it gets down and dirty.
You just need to know what WORKS.
Don’t let the simplicity of Mike’s teachings fool you. This ISN’T basic. These are advanced tactical moves. The reason they become part of your arsenal is because Mike is your coach.
There’s a reason Mike has earned the reputation of being the best instructor of REAL LIFE self-defense. He knows how to make this knowledge part of you. When you do this once, you never need to learn it again.
And it’s ALWAYS there. Ready for ANY situation.
Now there’s a lot in this program. And I know what you’re thinking… “isn’t this going to be expensive?”
But let me ask you…
Can you ever put a price on your life or the safety of those you
love and care about?
Your safety and your loved one’s safety is priceless. No amount of money will ever be enough to protect them. But let’s cut to the chase… to get access to this kind of training costs money.
The tactics taught by Mike in this program have only ever been available to corporate clients. United and Disney paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to Mike for these skills. You don’t have to.
Work one-on-one with Mike – if you can handle it – and he charges $5000 for the day.
Or you can attend one of Mike’s private workshops to learn this. The six students in the REAL LIFE Self-Defense training each paid $1,000 to be in the room with Mike.
But if you want to get your hands on EXACTLY the same training, you won’t have to pay $1,000 today.
You won’t have to pay anywhere near that.
Full disclosure here, but I told Mike he could charge $200-300 for this program EASILY. But he won’t let me twist his arm and demands this is a no-brainer for regular hard-working families.
To get hold of Mike’s program, you won’t even pay $100… or even HALF that.
REAL LIFE Self-Defense is available to you today for the measly sum of $39.
Yes, just $39 for everything outlined above.
Let’s put that in perspective. That’s less than the cost of a couple of over-hyped fighting books from Amazon.
That’s a tiny price to pay for what could potentially save your life.
If you’re wondering why we’re pricing this so low, well here’s the reason…

And if you’re still on the fence this is why you need to buy this
NO-ONE EVER EXPECTS AN ATTACK WHEN IT
How long will you risk being vulnerable?
Scan the headlines and the new stories for the words of those who are lucky enough to survive an attack. You will see the same comments every time…
“I didn’t expect it…”
“He came from nowhere…”
“I never thought it would happen to me…”
No-one ever thinks it will happen to them. Until it does.
Here’s the truth. It’s not personal. Sometimes bad things happen to good people through no fault of their own. When you recognize that, you understand why it pays to prepare yourself… just in case.
Don’t wait until tomorrow. Don’t wait until next week. Lift the weight from your shoulders knowing that you can defend yourself.
You can’t put a price on knowing deep in your soul that your loved ones are protected.
Invest in this and watch this with those you care most about… even if it’s just once. It could be the greatest gift you give to yourself and your loved ones – the peace of mind that they are empowered to stay safe and get home.
Remember, preparation doesn’t mean accepting violence. It means freeing you and those you care about from the fear you will suffer at the hands of an attacker.
Let me ask you… when has ignorance EVER been the best
I’ve explained everything that REAL LIFE Self-Defense offers and you’ve seen in detail how knowing this prepares you for any unforeseen horrible situation.
Mike Gillette’s powerful method of teaching has already shown people from all walks of life, just like you and I, how to:
Overcome your natural fear response to respond in the right way to any threat
Trust your intuition and act BEFORE the situation becomes complex
Become mentally strong to wrestle control from an attacker
Make your physical response second nature to defend yourself and survive
So you have two choices right now:
Tell yourself you’ll deal with this “some other day” and go back to your life. Hoping you never have to experience the horror of an attack before you get around to learning how to defend and survive.
Take action, invest in REAL LIFE Self-Defense and set aside the worry and fear that comes from not feeling like you know what to do in a bad situation.
Almost as soon as you start the program, you will experience what every other REAL LIFE Self-Defense student experiences. That eye-opening moment when you realize “yes, I can do this!”.
Once you start to master the psychology of fear, it feels like a veil is being lifted and you start to see the world differently. And all the worry that is making you paranoid or fearful of the world is totally unfounded. You step out every day knowing you’ve got this covered.
Trust the world’s best instructor on this subject, Mike Gillette, to give you the confidence to deal with any situation.
You’ll also feel great when you share this training with those you care about. Imagine how good it will feel knowing you’ve helped them prepare for ANYTHING.
Within a few weeks of discovering the program, you feel a change come over you. You think with greater clarity and purpose. And everyone you know notices.
You hold yourself differently. You see things others don’t.
You’ve learned to control fear. And you know that when you need to, you’re someone that shouldn’t be messed with.

FEEL MORE PREPARED
After taking this self-defense class with Mike Gillette, I feel more prepared to identify potential danger and protect myself physically. Mike teaches easy-to-remember strategies that can be used by anyone. I brought my 13-year-old daughter with me and she was successful at performing all the skills that were taught.

REDUCE FEAR & ANXIETY
As a nature photographer, I frequently find myself outdoors in secluded areas before sunrise and after sunset. While these hours provide the best light for photography, it’s not the safest time of day to be alone, and in some situations my thoughts focus more on my fears than my craft.
Truthfully, since purchasing Mike Gillette’s REAL LIFE Self Defense video series my anxieties in these early morning and late situations have significantly subsided. REAL LIFE Self Defense has provided me with the confidence to know that I can protect myself.
GENTLE WOMAN NOW FEELS SHE CAN PROTECT HERSELF
I have always been a very passive and gentle person. The idea of defending myself always seemed impossible. Impossible because I wouldn’t know what to do and impossible because I didn’t think I would have the ability to stand up to an attacker. As a woman though, the thought of potential attack is constantly on my mind.
Since watching Mike Gillette’s REAL LIFE Self Defense video series I feel confident that I could protect myself if the worst happened. The self-defense strategies taught are simple enough to remember under a time of extreme stress and I know now from watching this video series that sometimes just putting up a fight is enough to get away.

I FEEL MORE AWARE OF MY ENVIRONMENT
After watching Mike Gillette’s REAL LIFE Self Defense product I feel a heightened sense of awareness about my surroundings.
I realized that a bad situation can often be avoided completely simply by learning to listen to my gut feelings and intuition. Bad guys can act nice but give off a bad vibe. Thinks I never noticed before stand out right way to me now and I can easily avoid the entire situation before it goes down.
As a recording artist, I work in a lot of different environments and it helps me to focus and perform better when I know I can trust my instincts and be prepared if something were to happen. I highly recommend this product to anyone and it’s worth 100x’s the price for sure.
