Over the past few weeks there has been many armed robberies and home invasions in the Pelham New York area as resported on CBS News and the Daily Pelham. A group of local citizens has reached out to Master Chief Tommy DiLallo and Keith Sazer from V-Force Scientific Fighting Concepts (http://www.vforcesfc.com) for help. V-Force SFC is a reality based urban combat fighting method. “Our training is geared towards protecting yourself and your family from violent attacks unlike many martial art systems that focus on martial arts as a competitive sport as you may see on the UFC,” says Keith Sazer, a black belt instructor. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday Feb 11th and will have about 10 attendees. It is being hosted in a private home for realistic training purposes. Attendees will leave armed with education and a plan of a attack should they encounter a home invasion.
“The workshop we have prepared for the Pelham, New York residents will offer proven techniques on Open Hand, Weapons defense. Since there are many aspects of Home Invasion, the biggest concern is the shock when it is happening or the violation you feel if you walk home and find out that you have been burglarized. Fighting is a skill that must be fine tuned and trained constantly. So the tactics taught are plain and simple. Your life or theirs. The course will handle the psychological aspect, commitment, defense tactics,and gun/knife defense,” says Tommy DiLallo, the founder of V-ForceScientific Fighting Concepts.
Tommy DiLallo has over 30 years of Martial Arts, Self Defense and Military training, with 15+ years of constant training. He is also the founder of VFSFC, CX3 Fitness and the New York Self Defense Club.

Survival and Preparedness goes mainstream on the National Geographic Channel, reveals David Morris a survival expert from Secrets of Urban Survival, by airing a new series on survival and preparedness called “Doomsday Preppers” that includes interviews with survivalists and preparedness minded people. With topics ranging from basic food and water storage, self defense, running cars off of wood instead of gas, gardening, survive in place skills, retreat building, bugging out, and more, David Morris a survival expert explains, ?Doomsday Preppers? is a must see for people interested in preparing for survival.
David Morris the survival expert of Secrets of Urban Survival, warns viewers that just watching a survival show does not guarantee the viewer survival skills, just as watching UFC fights does not make the viewer a fighter. Survival tips and skills that are shown on the ?Doomsday Preppers? National Geographic TV show David explains, will need to be analyzed to see if they should be part of a survival preparedness plan. David adds, then the skills should be practiced until they are second nature, to become effective in a real survival situation.
The National Geographic channel will be airing the ?Doomsday Preppers? 1st episode on February 7th 2012 at 9pm EST, informs David Morris, then continues each Tuesday. David Morris says each show is an hour long and features 3 different people who are preparing for a disaster or an uncertain future. Secrets of Urban Survival expert David Morris, recommends that anyone who is into preparedness should watch the ?Doomsday Preppers? show, and may even learn something from it that will increase their own preparedness.
The Secrets of Urban Survival expert David Morris says, the ?Doomsday Preppers? National Geographic TV show explores the lives of otherwise ordinary Americans who are preparing for the end of the world as they know it. These people are unique in their beliefs, motivations, and strategies David Morris reveals. Preppers will do what is necessary to make sure they are prepared for any of life?s uncertainties, David adds.
National Geographic has gathered people from many different backgrounds, David from Secrets of Urban Survival explains, who all have their own prepping styles for the ?Doomsday Preppers? show. The people that will be on the show David says have their own challenges and plans for the disaster they deem most likely to occur.
David Morris from Secrets of Urban Survival advises people to keep in mind that this National Geographic ?Doomsday Preppers? show is television, so some parts may be a bit sensationalized, but should definitely be watched by anyone that knows preparedness is the means to survival. This is why David will be reviewing each show. Starting with the 1st episode of the ?Doomsday Preppers,? David will be doing analysis and reviews after each show at SecretsOfUrbanSurvival.com, plus David will be commenting live on the website during the show.
The important thing about survival and preparedness TV shows, the Secrets of Urban Survival expert David Morris explains, is that the skills that they teach are next to useless until the people trying to acquire them take ownership of them, practice them, and make them their own. There are occasional stories about how people survive disasters by doing something that they saw on TV, explains David Morris, but the reason those stories make the news is because they are so rare, and someone who learns skills, practices them, and successfully applies them under stress is normal and not news worthy.
The Secrets of Urban Survival expert David Morris says people can learn a lot from other people?s preparedness efforts, which is one of the great things about a show like the National Geographic ?Doomsday Preppers.? Survival expert David Morris developed Secrets of Urban Survival to provide information for people that are actively looking to learn important strategies for preparedness, and find out exactly how to prepare for survival.
