Home Invasion Defense: 11. Y.O. With Combat Machete Defeats Home Invader!

“If they come in the door, you let ’em have it!”

Those words from 11 y.o. Braydon Smith’s father had to echo through his head as he sat in the dark – stuffed in a bedroom closet by a gang of home invaders.

Alone… afraid… outsized… outnumbered… and with no police “back-up” on the way…

Braydon took his dad’s words to heart and, in the pitch black darkness of the closet, plotted to grab the closest “weapon” his little hands could find, and…

Here’s How This 11 y.o. Single-Handedly Defeated A Gang Of Low-Life Home Invaders…

Home Invasion Defense - Braydon Smith
Home Invasion Defense – Braydon Smith

It was 11:00 am on a sunny June morning when young Braydon – alone at home – heard a knock on the family’s front door as he was talking with his mother on the phone.

Peering out his front window, he saw a strange woman on the front porch.

Braydon knew something wasn’t quite right, when suddenly…

*CRASH*

… he heard his bedroom window shatter behind him!

Jataveon Dashawn Hall

In mere seconds, Braydon found himself staring face-to-chest with Jataveon Dashawn Hall, a hardened gang member who used his partner’s front-door distraction to invade their home and ambush the youngster when he wasn’t looking.

Braydon fought back with everything he had.

But he was no match for the bigger, stronger Jataveon Hall, who grabbed a pellet gun and forced Braydon into the bedroom closet so he and his gang could loot his home without interference.

They seriously underestimated the 11 y.o…

Braydon remembered the weapon that was hidden nearby after a previous burglary…

It wasn’t a pistol… it wasn’t a rifle… it wasn’t a shotgun…

… it was a machete!

Bursting through the closet door, Braydon – a “star baseball player” in his hometown of Mebane, North Carolina – quickly grabbed the machete and started swinging like he was going for a home run, surprising the unaware Hall with a hit to the back of his head.

The fight was on!

Hall turned around and kicked Braydon in the stomach.

The boy came back – swinging the machete again – but missed.

Hall then kicked Braydon in the head, sending him sprawling to the ground – out of the fight – as he continued his looting of the home while his cohorts waited outside.

That’s when he felt it…

… the wet, warm sensation on the back of his neck.

Reaching back, Hall discovered that the boy’s first blow had hit its target and sliced a good sized gash in the back of his head that was bleeding severely.

In a panic, he dropped the electronics and rushed out the door to flee the area with his two other partners in crime, leaving a trail of blood (and DNA evidence!) behind him.

11 y.o. Braydon – 3
Gang Members – 0

When interviewed later, Braydon said he “hesitated a little,” but he was determined to defend his family’s home from this violent invader.

“You shouldn’t have done what you’ve done,” Braydon said of the thug who attacked him.

(Wise words from a little boy, eh?)

Law enforcement praised his quick-thinking in defending himself and defending his family’s home.

But who KNOWS what Jataveon Hall might have done if Braydon hadn’t gotten to that big blade in time, right?

We all know that home invaders prey on those they consider “weak” – children, the elderly, the handicapped, women – and will use violence to gain power over their victims with no regard for human life.

That’s why I’m such a huge advocate of owning a gun for home defense – and there have been numerous stories about young kids who’ve defended their homes with firearms.

But Braydon didn’t HAVE a gun!

And it’s very unlikely that any OTHER weapon (like a baseball bat, or even a knife) would have allowed him to fight off Jataveon Hall.

Hall was bigger, stronger, and more aggressive.

Only a BIG blade like a machete had the power to put him down…

…and Braydon’s story shows just how effective a machete can be for personal defense – EVEN in the hands of an 11-year-old!

And you can imagine why…

The machete is so simple to use at a “basic” level, that even a small boy can use it against a larger, stronger attacker — and win!

And with more “advanced machete fighting tactics”, it’s downright deadly – as a home defense “back-up” to a firearm, or even as a primary weapon if no gun is available.

In fact, its simplicity is just one of the reasons why I say the machete is the “ultimate survival weapon”, whether you’re facing a horde of face-eating zombies (kidding!) or a brutal home invader in your living room with no regard for human life.

Take a few lessons from young Braydon…

Think “beyond the gun” and consider what other weapons you can use around your home if you were forced to defend yourself in a home invasion ambush.

Not only that, I suggest you even go one step further and actually HIDE “back-up weapons” in strategic locations around your home – like a¬†machete…

And to young Braydon… “Nice job my man!” ūüôā

… AND (of course)¬†know how to¬†USE¬†them in a real attack!

Urban Survival Tips: “Crocodile Dundee” Was Right!

Ok, I know it’s just a movie, but that scene from Crocodile Dundee is always going to be one of my favorites.

Dundee, a tough guy from the Australian wilderness, is visiting New York City when a mugger pulls a switchblade on him.

“He’s got a knife!” says his smoking hot lady friend.

“That’s not a knoif,” Dundee says.THAT’S a knoif.”

Then he pulls out a HUGE knife that he’s carrying across his back, under his jacket.

The knife is so big that the switchblade-wielding punk fills his pants and takes off running… but not before dropping his puny weapon first!

Well, “Crocodile” had the right idea about surviving in the urban jungle of Manhattan – and the reasons why all have to do with…

7+ Urban Survival Uses For The Machete

Best Urban Survival Machete: The Guardian

Now, I’m not saying you should carry a giant knife or machete around with you as an “everyday carry” blade.

But for survival purposes – especially in urban areas – you may want to consider something much bigger than your pocket knife.

And I realize that when most people think of “urban” tools and weapons, they don’t really think of the machete.

That’s because the machete has always been more of a wilderness survival tool – or at least, most people think of it that way.

That’s a mistake!

If you treat it like it’s only for when you’re out in the woods, you’re missing out on a great tool for survival and self-defense in ANY environment, including urban and suburban places.

Even if you’re miles away from the nearest blade of grass, the machete can do TONS of things for you:

You can use the blade for leverage, making the machete a crowbar and even a breaching tool (to bust open locks that might be between you and safety).

You can use it as an emergency extraction tool, for cutting your way through seat belts, smashing your way through glass, and even cutting holes in sheet metal to rescue somebody in a car accident.

In a short-term collapse or “WROL/SHTF” sort of situation, you can use it as an urban and suburban foraging tool – to do everything from chop wood from suburban trees, to digging latrines when the plumbing stops working (too bad about that public park, but you gotta do what you gotta do).

It also makes a great general purpose utility, escape, and evasion tool, which you can use to smash open doors while searching for supplies in abandoned buildings, cut sections of tarp, or lengths of rope, and much more.

And yes, just like “Crocodile Dundee” did, you can use the machete as a kind of “urban sword,” as a powerful and intimidating self-defense weapon!

There’s just one problem…

Not all machetes are created equal.

That doesn’t stop some manufacturers from trying, of course.

Recently, for example, Wal-Mart upgraded their cheap, piece-of-junk “camping” machete…

…to a slightly better cheap, piece-of-junk “camping” machete.

That’s not the kind of “weapon” you want to trust your life to!

My guardian machete, though, is one badass piece of hardware.

It’s heavier than all the other machetes on the market (on purpose) because of the special steel we use that’s so much stronger than what other companies – even the ‘”big boys” – try to pass off for field use.

It’s a knife that even Crocodile Dundee would look at and say, “Now that’s a knoif,” and you can check it out for yourself here.

Frankly, there is no better machete on the market.

Black Friday Sale – Before We DELETE Our Machete Page!

Jeff Anderson

It’s true – I’m going to pull down the webpage for my bestselling Guardian Machete.

Why?

Because I’m going to start selling a better one!

The thing is, though, before I get the new ones in and put up a new page for them, I still have some of the old ones left.

That means that for Black Friday, I’m going to let you buy the remaining, original Guardian machete at a HUGE discount.

Through “Cyber Monday” only, you won’t believe the incredible discount on the original Guardian!

This is the ONLY time you’ll have a chance to get this deal.

Now, the next generation Guardian, which is in production right now, will be made of the same tough-as-nails 1095 steel, which means it will still be the same beast of a blade.

It will feature a better finish, too (not that we were ever really focused on keeping this workhorse blade looking like a “safe queen”).

It also has a redesigned handle that I like even better than the original.

I’m really excited about these improvements… but the fact is, people LOVE the original Guardian, and have been praising it since we introduced it!

Doug Y. wrote us…

“Wow this machete is awesome!

I carried [a machete] for 10 years with 2 different sheriff’s departments for search & rescue.¬†¬†We covered everywhere from Lake Tahoe down to Placerville CA. along with mutual aid calls from Yosemite, 29 palms and many others.

During that time, we did cliff, swift water, and helicopter rescues and a machete went with me everywhere. It was a standard part of my kit…

…and boy do I wish I had your Guardian machete back then!

Fantastic tool!¬†Thanks again!”

And Ben W. wrote…

“I just took [the Guardian machete] with me to Belize and used it extensively while in the jungle around Monkey River.

The Guardian’s blade outperformed ALL of the local machetes used by both the Mayans and the Mennonites!”

If you already own one of our custom-made Guardian machetes, then you know first-hand that it’s truly the best survival tool on the market today.

Because this is the LAST TIME the original model will be available,¬†we decided to offer you¬†a special freebie¬†for a limited time…

One of the features of the Guardian package is our custom-designed, “covert blue” MOLLE sheath that easily attaches to a bug-out bag or can be worn by itself with the handy detachable shoulder strap.

The strap allows you to carry the blade AND add a few extra MOLLE tactical pouches as a standalone “mission pack” for carrying supplies during short-term survival tasks.

Now these tactical pouches don’t¬†normally come with the sheath (that’s what our X-BOB bugout bag is for)…

But I have a killer freebie for you (through Cyber Monday only)…

Black Friday Sale!

If you buy one of the last remaining original Guardians right now,¬†I’ll throw in TWO 8″ tactical pouches with your package (a $94 value – free) so you can customize your tactical sheath right away.

PLUS…

Even though the Guardian’s heat-treated 1095 steel blade is unmatched in sharpness and durability (you DID see us chop up a steel truck hood and then slice through a dozen beer cans in one swipe, right?), we’ve been looking for the perfect “field sharpener” to carry with your gear for ALL of your blades.

We found a “beast” built for the field!

So when you order your original Guardian this weekend – at a discount price you’ll NEVER be able to get again – we’re also going to throw into the box¬†our favorite 2-phase tactical sharpener.

You can attach to your bag or sheath with the handy “D-ring” attachment (another $9.95 value)

This field sharpener features 2 tungsten carbide blades and two ceramic rods with preset sharpening angles for the perfect edge every time.

Just 3 or 4 strokes through the carbide sharpening slots after a full day of chopping up zombies will restore the edge in seconds…

… while the 2 crossed ceramic rods are preset at the correct finishing angle after setting the edge and are also good for a quick touch-up of already sharp knives.

Altogether, this is almost $104 bonus “tactical pack” you’re getting absolutely FREE when you order one of the remaining Guardian machetes this weekend.

But there IS one little “catch”…

I only have a small amount of these freebie “tactical packs” in stock¬†right now, and only a limited number of the original Guardian machetes.

If I run out of either one at these crazy prices, I’ll have to shut the deal down.

So if you’ve been hemming and hawing about getting a Guardian, the time has never been better than right now – just in time for the holidays… at a HUGE discount… and with over $100 of tactical goodies thrown in for free.

Just use this special link for more info and to jump on this deal NOW while we still have machetes and freebies available.

(If you click and see a “sold out” page… well… sorry… you just weren’t fast enough on the draw, and you’ll have to wait for the next-generation Guardian to arrive. ūüôā

Get your original Guardian machete and free bonus “tactical pack” now while supplies last…

Best Tactical Machete Advice For Machete Attacks In The STREETS

The unidentified man tried to retreat… only to be pursued by an entire GANG of thugs.

They were wielding machetes, bats, and even a full-on sword!

This wasn’t something out of a post-apocalyptic movie.

It was the streets of south London, and it happened just a few days ago!

The bizarre melee battle was captured by people recording it for Snapchat on their phones.

This chaos is NOT an isolated incident, either.

It’s happening almost every day, and it represents a very dangerous warning for you and me when it comes to self-defense!

Keep reading, because i’m going to explain why…

Machete Battles In The STREETS Give Insight Into¬†“Other Weapons” For Survival…

The recent September 3rd street battle in Croydon — the town in south London that used to be a nice, safe place — has residents screaming about “lawless London.”

As crowds of horrified people gathered to record the battle, some of the DOZEN men involved began swinging metal pipes at each other.

The brawl broke up into separate fights.

Some were machete-on-knife fights.

Some were bat-on-sword fights.

Some were the metal-smashing pipe fights.

Then they started throwing bricks.

By the time the cops arrived, the men involved had already fled the scene. leaving at least one knife behind.

And the people standing there, foolishly watching and endangering their lives?

They keep telling the reporters they can’t believe what’s happened to their peaceful neighborhood.

The sad fact is that in the last few years, violent crime in cities like London has surged to rival levels in big United States cities.

In part, that’s due to gangs moving into the cities, preying on the inner-city populations.

As the violence has increased, people using scooters and bicycles to commit “drive by” attacks have become increasingly common, too.

They use acid, throwing it in people’s face.

They use knives.

They even use illegal guns.

But do you know what the most common weapon used in the streets of London is?

It’s the machete.

According to a recent news report, the police in the UK are dealing with a whopping 15 machete attacks. . . EVERY DAY!

Attacks with every type of knife are off the charts there, but the machete is CLEARLY the weapon of choice.

And that’s my point.

Here’s why that matters to you…

The gangs in the UK have figured that out.

Gangs and street criminals here in the United States have learned it, too.

The notorious MS-13 gang in the United States, for example, can get all the illegal guns it wants…

…but they STILL use machetes when they want to prove how badass they are.

(I believe in the power of the machete so much, in fact, that I designed one myself — but more on that in a minute.)

The machete is a short sword.

It’s inexpensive.

It delivers POWERFUL damage, and does so quickly.

It’s also more maneuverable than a traditional sword (sorry to you samurai out there).

And it’s a LOT less conspicuous than other types of big blades, because it has an “official” outdoor use.

When you buy a gun for everyday carry or home defense, you DON’T buy the cheapest one you can get, do you?

I sure hope not, because you’re going to be relying on that weapon to save your life.

Well, for those times you can’t have a gun with you — or if you live someplace that they’re trampling on your gun rights — you want to stock up on alternative weapons NOW, while you still can.

But just like when buying a gun to defend your life, you DON’T want to trust your family’s safety to a five-dollar Walmart machete.

You want to buy something SOLID.

You want a machete that can smash through doors and even concrete barriers.

You want a machete that can cut through whatever obstacle you face.

And you want a machete that can handle any FIGHT in front of you, one that handles like a real WEAPON.

I’m not going to lie… there are lots of machetes out there that have some of these qualities.

But there’s only ONE that can handle all the abuse you throw at it… and still serve as a fighting weapon you can trust with your life.
