SUBJECT: Re: Self-Defense
Caruthers and I spoke on this subject awhile back--just before the month where we went missing. It's not how I imagined it going, but just about everyone who went has some training in self-defense and firearms now. I said before that I was willing to help practice and I still am. Assuming everyone isn't tired of my instruction after weeks in Knowhere.
As important as individual training is, most of the incidents that occur happen to more than one person. You should consider regular team-based exercises as well. This isn't about combat as much as it's about communication.
Any intense (destructive) mutation practicing should probably happen outside of the city. I know a few places.
