TED talks on Self-Defense?
An acquaintance asked about a series of professionally presented talks discussing armed self-defense. I’d never thought of that, so I started a list of self-defense talks I’d like to hear. Each talk requires someone who is both knowledgeable and persuasive in their presentation.
This is an exercise in fantasy at this point. I’ve neither the talk, the speaker, nor the venue. Right now I’m interested in an audience survey. I’m curious what topics you would add or remove. Please share your thoughts.
