Violence as a Tool with Tim Larkin

by Aug 24, 2020

Learning how to use violence as a tool doesn’t make a violent person.

Violence is a divisive topic. Some of us have been victims to it in the past, and the overall cultural response is to reject it. Unfortunately, we still live in a country where violence happens on the regular and the good people on the receiving end don’t know how to deal with it. 

My guest for this episode is a man named Tim Larkin. He’s the founder of Target Focus Training, and the New York Times best-selling author of “Survive the Unthinkable: A Total Guide to Women’s Self-Protection.” 

Tim is a world-class self-defense expert who teaches average people how to wield violence when necessary, while teaching them how to stay in control and be disciplined. One of the major themes of this conversation is the relationship between violence and peace. 

How do they go hand in hand?

When you understand how to exact, and under which circumstances violence is necessary, you become more confident, less fearful, and as a result… more peaceful.
