As a professional in the military field he had all the resources to help me.
After getting back from Iraq he dedicated his life to become an expert survivalist.
So I picked up the phone and called him.
We met up and discussed what I found out. When hearing the facts, he was very surprised. He told me that most of his army trainings consisted of similar threats.
He then explained to me the real secret to be safe in such situations is to know some basic techniques that only military men know. Because he trained in some of the toughest field conditions in the world, he knew them like the back of his hand.
That was the moment I realized I found solution to my problem.
What I didn’t realize however, is just how complex this domain is.
The true secret of it is that it so simple to learn.
And the fundamentals are so easy, yet few know it and it’s rarely used.
So, if properly taught, it can ensure anyone’s safety.
Without wasting a second, the very next day we met and we started sort of a “survival training” at his training camp.
As the training began I swore myself I wouldn’t go back home without the proper skills to survive The Strike.
After many hours of going through dozens of techniques I found what I was looking for and I realized that they held the key to protect my family.
But what I didn’t know exactly was how to apply them in extreme situations…
Rick, being an enthusiast in this field, thoroughly explained them to me.
However, I insisted to set some basic rules:
- I had to be able to easily teach them to my children .
- The materials we used had to be easy to find when everything goes South.
As a guy who trained in this domain, Rick had a pretty good idea of the methods that can help you survive under any circumstances. However, learning to apply them wasn’t that easy…
We had some heated arguments, mainly because of me being stubborn – I needed the course to be really easy to understand and teach others…
In the end, after several weeks, we finally came up with the simplest techniques that anyone can understand. Brilliant as they were, they could come in handy for anyone, anywhere.
We only used things lying around his training camp that I never thought could be of such use.
All accessories used during the course wouldn’t have cost more than 50 bucks at Home Depot.
However, I’m sure anyone could also find them around their house for free, if they weren’t in a rush.
But the most important part is that it was incredibly useful and easy to remember.
No risks of injuries or damages, so anyone will have zero worries about their family’s safety.
They simply have to follow the steps in the right order to achieve the skills…
And because of the ingenious way the course was designed…
They’ll be prepared for when Putin strikes with any weapon.
They’ll be prepared for any dangerous situation that might occur.
Even more, the techniques will provide security for anyone’s family, even if you face the most dangerous situations or you need them around the house.
So, after finishing the course, I headed home at peace, knowing that I’m prepared to protect my family from any disaster.
After a while, my family and friends noticed a change in me. They all saw me more relaxed, more confident in myself.
But the first test came shortly.
The next spring we went on our yearly family camping trip. Once a year we have a family tradition to spend a night or two in the wilderness – only us and the nature.
We packed all necessary supplies and headed out.
But this time was different.
At nightfall, as we were preparing to go to sleep, my wife, when moving the food in the trunk of the car, slipped on the wet grass and fell.
I heard a scream in the dark.
She had the bad luck of falling on a choppy rock and cut her calf.
I immediately rushed over and I realized it wasn’t a simple cut. It was deep and it was bleeding fast.
At the sight of blood she panicked and started to shiver.
I calmed her down and told her she was safe and everything would be OK.
I told her to lie on the back, I placed her legs at a higher level than her body, then I grabbed the first aid kit, cleaned the wound and bandaged her leg not to lose any more blood.
After securing the wound, I improvised some leg splints and tied them with some rope I had in the car, just in case - exactly how Rick had taught me.
Because of the difficult road we couldn’t rush to the hospital that night but as soon as the first rays of sun came we drove off to check the wound.
After thoroughly analyzing the splinters, bandages and the cut, the doctor told me everything was OK and, to my surprise, asked me if it had been done by a healthcare professional because besides changing the bandage, nothing else was needed.
Feeling relieved, we went home. On our way, while driving, I realized how lucky we were that I had trained with Rick for Putin’s Big Strike.
I followed the steps Rick had taught me with such ease and it all came so natural to me that I didn’t even realize it at the moment.
In truth, I almost couldn't believe how simple all of this was... and how it helped me and my family stay safe.
After a while I gave it a good thought and realized that it had been a great lesson…
In emergency situations you have to rely on yourself and not be dependent on anyone else.
And I felt so RELIEVED to know that I could offer my family the sense of safety and that they would always grow up in a warm, secure and comfortable home.
Now, that was about a year and a half ago...
And since then, my family and I have been more relaxed than I ever thought I would.
I started applying more and more of Rick’s techniques around the house and everything got easier.
Plus, using some of the information, I managed to grow a few vegetables and fruits in my small backyard.
Enough to never worry about extreme situations such as food-shortage.
Well before long my friends and family members were begging to know my secret...
And when I told them about my camp experience and how Rick’s techniques helped me then and on a daily basis...
A lot of them had a hard time believing some survival lessons could be so helpful.
But after I'd given them the simple, clear instructions... and they'd followed them, and even applied some on routine chores with ease… they became believers FAST.
Because when anyone used these amazing plans, the results were the same: sense of security, self-confidence and a safe environment for themselves and their family.
They all learned how to grow and cook their own food, produce their own water, protect their selves and their loved ones from any disaster, how to protect their homes … and more amazing such skills.
Soon my friends were telling their friends about the plans...
Until finally the number of phone calls and emails from people asking me to share them became too overwhelming...
Emily put her foot down and told me that I HAD to find a better way to share this information with the world.
So, I went to work with Rick putting on paper all the techniques, all the knowledge we had in clear simple steps.
