It is the time of year when personal safety should be on the top of your head. Well, it should be year round, but especially now around malls and shopping centers.
My friend David Kaufman has a great personal safety blog, Qui Custodes. He updates it regularly with information and insights about personal safety. Why should you listen to him?
From his website:
In addition to a law degree, I have over 40 years Martial Arts Experience. I am a 6th Degree Black Belt and instructor in Mu Duk Kwon Tang Soo Do, a 5th Degree Black Belt and instructor in Myo Sim Kendo and a 5th Degree Black Belt and instructor in Myo Sim Iaido. I also have Black Belts is other disciplines. Finally, and most importantly, I have 20-plus years as both a covert and overt tactical and strategic consultant and instructor. If you want to know more about me or want to contact me directly my law firm operates 2 different websites: www.karatelaw.com and www.dzklaw.com.
That is why you should listen to him! Give it a read. There is some good information there.
