The Paradox of Violence | Tim Larkin | TEDxGrandForks

Published on Apr 6, 2015
Violence is rarely the answer, but when it is… it is the only answer. This provocative talk explores the uncomfortable realities of violence. There is no greater fear that being physically dominated by a bigger, faster, stronger attacker. Yet there is actually little good information on how to use the tool of violence. Here you will learn the surprising truth about violence and how we have stigmatized the study of violence to the point that only the criminal elements have access to it.
A former military intelligence officer, Tim Larkin was part of a beta group that redesigned how special operations personnel trained for close combat. He has a 25-year career, training people in 52 countries on how to deal with imminent violence. Over 10,000 clients are trained in his Target Focus Training (TFT) from military special operations units, special law enforcement teams, celebrities, and high profile business leaders on how to use physics and physiology to injure any human(s) trying to attack them.
The nation’s leading pro-victim rights and personal safety advocate as well as a member of the Black Belt Hall of Fame, Tim’s numerous magazine covers and articles in the martial arts and self-defense industry are as controversial as his “pro-victim advocate” position on self-protection.
This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://ted.com/tedx

This is elementary common sense.”

sell your cloak and buy one.”

  1. Terrific post, TD!

  2. I would love to take a self defense course given by Tim Larkin. I found the video to be extremely interesting and when his book comes out I’ll buy it. Understanding the psychological aspects of violent criminals and how they think is as important as being able to physically protect one’s self therefore the book will be a valuable tool in personal self defense. Thanks for this post Traildust. 😊

  3. Self defense is no mere luxury: It is a MORAL IMPERATIVE. We must not confuse lousy emotional feelings for having defended innocent life—or property—and a clear conscience.

  4. Great Luke 22:36 quote, TD!

      Thank you Dr. Eowyn. I know a few Christians who think pacifism is morally superior. I would call to their attention that this quote by the Lord took place on the night He was betrayed, and He knew what needed to be spoken as a directive to His followers. His message: You have a right and a duty to defend yourself. And no, that does not contradict the “turn the other cheek” statement, which was about forgiveness.
