The machete is a weapon of mass destruction.
It's a weapon of genocide.
It has been used to kill and maim thousands of people.
And that's why you need to train with it.
No, I haven't lost my mind… and I'm not trying to be dramatic.
But the fact is, the machete is a much bigger deal, as a weapon, than you might think it is…
Why The Machete Is The Go-To Weapon Of Collapse And Social Chaos
You may not realize it, but the machete has been used to take countless lives – notably, in massacres like the Rwandan genocide.
(This was dramatized in an unspecified African nation in the movie Beasts Of No Nation, where the image above comes from.)
There are 3 reasons it's so popular as a primary weapon, not a backup, in third world nations – places where the “rule of law” is nonexistent and the strongest, most violent people rule:
- It's simple – with no moving parts – which means even third-world child soldiers, not to mention roving death squads, can use it and keep using it.
- It's powerful, with the leverage necessary to sever limbs and remove heads.
- It's terrifying, striking fear in the hearts of those who see gangs equipped with machetes.
Just a few years ago, in fact, “scores” of people were hacked to death by men using machetes, in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Hundreds of civilians were killed during that particular burst of violence in 2016.
“But Jeff,” you may be thinking, “that's happening in the Third World. It's not like that here.”
Well, no – not yet, it isn't.
But in the UK, an industrialized nation that is very similar to the United States in a lot of respects, they're seeing multiple machete attacks every single day.
Their street gangs have embraced the machete as the weapon of choice.
“But Jeff,” you may also be thinking. “That's because guns are banned in the UK.”
Well, sure – but here in the States, the violent gang MS-13 has ALSO embraced the machete as their favored weapon, specifically because the level of brutality it involves helps the gang spread terror.
See, we all think we live in the industrialized “First World,” but we're all only a few days of power outage away from riots in the streets – and the type of WROL (Without Rule Of Law), s–t hits the fan collapse that turns those streets into a bloody nightmare.
Whether they ban guns or not, you can bet that gangs and street criminals with machetes are going to come out of the woodwork in a “collapse” scenario, with police and medical personnel stretched too thin to patrol the streets.
The street criminals know their machetes don't depend on ammo – so even if authorities suspend ammo sales during a crisis, the gangs won't be affected.
And while more and more cities have those fancy gunshot detectors to bring police to areas where firearms go off, machetes are silent – and even deadlier than firearms within arms' reach.
That means that if there's even a temporary collapse of order here in North America, it could be only a matter of days before thugs with machetes are roaming freely, preying on the weak.
Can you imagine your family hiding in fear behind you, while you face just 2, 3, 4, or more machete-wielding predators?
The ONLY thing that would save you be a technique that I teach in my Advanced Combat Machete course.
It's a method that can be used (and has been used) to fight off multiple attackers… and it's EASY to learn.
Using these techniques, you could literally take on a dozen or more armed attackers – and it's one of the most fun lesson we go over in our annual “Combat Machete Camps”.
It's all in there, so unless you want to be helpless when the s— hits the fan, the rule of law collapses, and big blades rule the streets… well, it just might be time for you to get trained up with your OWN machete.
It WILL be your preferred weapon in a collapse, something you can rely on even when your ammo runs out (or your guns are banned).
Don't wait until things get that bad, though – learn to protect your family NOW.
