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 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.
Frankly, there is no equal.
