There I Was…When Nothing Happened, a self defense anthology, will feature 40 top-tier protection professionals each telling a story about a time they avoided violence through skills like awareness, evasion, humor, or de-escalation. It’s high time the protection industry spent more time on these pragmatic skills rather than physical skills we might only use two or three times in our lives. The project will feature NYWIFT member Teja VanWicklen.
