Lethal Street Self Defense Tips From Bas Rutten

Bas Rutten is one of my favorite old school fighters. He’s been around from the beginning. Bas was a UFC Heavyweight Champion, a three-time King of Pancrase world champion, and finished his career on a 22 fight unbeaten streak. He also put out a lot of educational fight content in books, DVDs and workout equipment.

One of the most watched DVDs is Bas Rutten’s "Lethal Street Fighting" Self Defense System. Original edited down version of the video had over 1 million views on Youtube. Since, it has been taken down but there are re-uploads for you to watch.

The short video definitely has entertainment value but make sure to check out the full DVD version here.

My 7 Home Security Tips Without Spending Anything

Last week a neighbor’s house got robbed.

2 months ago, a house down the street got robbed by a duo that has been breaking into houses around the neighborhood. Since then, they have been caught.

Two unrelated cases, two different set of people. Way too close to my house.

Now, since I don’t want to spend a lot of money on a security system and pay a subscription fee every month, I needed to do something. So, I set up rules for myself and my family that have to be followed until they become a habit.

I recommend you read these, and take away what is useful and discard what isn’t. Not all of these may be possible. Some may seem very obvious, but never underestimate anyone…

The Worst Zombie Survival Game Of The Year – Walking Dead: Survival Instinct

I am always excited for any FPS (first-person-shooter) zombie survival games that come out. I am often disappointed. When I heard that Walking Dead series will have its own fps game from Activision, I was excited. Even the name sounded cool, The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. Urban environments, open world, south. Count me in.

Well, that is until I saw early gameplay footage.

Comments to the video above were not nice, but truth hurts.

"Is it just me or do the graphics look like they are not to far past PS1 quality? lol. It doesn’t seem like they put that much effort or money into it. Fuck Activision they should team up with Rockstar

But, your presence alerts nearby infected.

Alternate escape route is out of the question. The only exit is where you just came from.  It is being blocked by 3 walkers. Who are now approaching you.

You currently have 8 rounds left in your Glock19.

If you use your handgun, you could alert more infected. You don’t know if there are more around or if this is it. You can’t risk it. You don’t want any…

Don’t leave your house today until you read this.

Have you seen the failed assassination attempt that happened recently in Bulgaria? Turkish party leader was delivering a speech until a man walked onto the stage, pulled out a gun and what looked like, pulled the trigger.

Few seconds later, other delegates rushed the stage and tackled the assailant.
