Preparing yourself mentally for the fight is critical. Your success against an aggressor will depend on not just your skill-set but also your mindset. In this video Paul Howe reviews important topics like motivation to survive, fear and negative thoughts, mental programming, how to handle stress, tactical confidence, medical self-aid, and more.

Paul is a high-risk training instructor that served 20 years in the US Army, ten of those in Special Operations.

One of the most notable was the battle of Mogadishu that was later portrayed in the motion picture Black Hawk Down.

    I thought most of the topics he addressed were kinda common sense. I was left feeling about as informed as I was before watching. I also thought it was short for the price. The video segments he shows are VERY graphic. Most of the times these warnings can be taken with a grain of salt, but actually watching someone being decapitated was a little much for me.

    Once you watch this you will never forget it. Paul Howe has proven the importance of combat mindset with this DVD.

    If this film disturbs you, you probably have the wrong wiring to gain from this..simply switch it off. If you apply this source, it will raise your survivability rate and efficiency among other attributes. Paul Howe is a living breathing wealth of Do’s and Dont’s. You would be wise to listen.

    I am so thankful that someone actually put this into a series on DVD. Otherwise most would only experience it through a physical course or via real life situations. Your mindset is the key to everything, especially survival!

    Recommended for anyone who is serious about personal protection. Graphic, but necessary to show the true evil that is out there.

    Unfortunately mindset wasn’t emphasized enough in my Martial Arts and Self-Defense training. This video taught me more in a short amount of time then 10+ years of training…

    Thank you Instructor Howe and Panteao!

    A must for anyone training for the possibility of needing to use their firearms seriously. In this video you will witness atrocious acts of violent events in the past that you won’t forget. Do you remember going through Driver’s training way back where they showed graphic scenes from real car accidents to drive the point home? This video has that same kind of impact. Even more importantly, this footage accompanied by the wise words of Paul Howe. This is the kind of video that you should re-watch any time you start to forget how serious the real world is.

    Paul Howe knows a thing or two about violence and combat. The graphic segments do a superlative job of showing how ruthless your enemies may be. While disturbing, they drive home how it is better to fight than to surrender and lay yourself at the mercy of your foe. The rest of the video is helpful tips from a warrior of long experience. You would do well to take notes. Sure, some of it is common sense. But common sense is not all that common these days.

    Very realistic. A video you should watch before attending any of the other courses on Panteao.
