By Mark Lang Tactical Edge/ Spring 2015 In March 2008, the FBI and Department of Homeland Security issued an assessment asserting that stadiums and arenas are potential targets during events.

In January 2009, DHS issued an assessment report titled “Threats to College Sports and Entertainment Venues and Surrounding Areas.” This report expounded on public transportation and infrastructure as a target of attack if the venue is perceived as being ...

An Excerpt from the Full Combat Mind Presentation by Rigo Durazo "When I began my training many years ago, it was very much like a game of chess with strategy and tactics. I believed that with enough training I could counter any move. I would often see a move or tactic and immediately tell you what I could do to counter that move. I truly did not understand the elements of violence. I was basing all my training on people who had the same values and ethics or morality as myself. I was only fighting to win and dominate. I had ...
