Various Branches of the United States Military, in particular the USMC and the Army have collected compelling evidence that “Warrior Mind Fitness Training”, (WMFT), as it is often called there, and/or Mindfulness Meditation and Visualization can calm the racing mind or the modern warrior and make him or her more open to learning and solidifying life saving strategies, more capable of making appropriate decisions under stress and then acting appropriately in response to those stressors.

WMFT has been tested on active duty soldiers and Marines prior to deployment or redeployment to Iraq, and has generated empirical and reproducible data suggesting that the modern warrior may have his or her mind re-encoded to produce a warrior exercising decision making and actions with more clarity and with fewer negative psychological side effects after altercations, as well as improving the scars of war that already exist. The latest research in genetics and sports medicine has indicated that even the smallest exercise of muscle changes how our DNA function on a chemical level. This can thus pertain to heart muscle fiber, the smallest muscles in our sensory organs and not to mention our large muscle groups.

For the modern individual trying to protect himself and his family, this training can have profound effects with simple but consistent training. We have developed a simple system of mindfulness exercises that incorporate tested methods of mindfulness deep breathing, guided imagery, aural tone/brain wave tracking, and short periods (2-5) minutes of monitored mindfulness meditation, with brief instructions being given at each interval.

This system is used in conjunction with periods of controlled, scripted, yet escalating emotional and physical chaos, including force on force training, sparring, firearms training, among other exercises. We believe that anyone can learn to act robustly and appropriately under adrenal stress situations based upon activities that many already do or can very easily learn and practice, then the modern citizen can effectively respond to any stress, whether physical, psychological or emotional.
