Terry is a friend of mine and is what you might call a violence expert . He’s an army vet, suffered from addiction in the past, is one of the best Silat practitioners / instructors everywhere. He's seen violence and understands self defense is more than some martial arts or a weapon. First aid knowledge is extremely important. When you've actually witnessed trauma you get this. He's a person worth listening to on topics like this.
One thing he harps on the self defense crowd about is first aid. You might say he’s obsessed with tourniquets. But since he’s right in the number one preventable death for trauma victims is bleeding out.
A properly applied tourniquet will often save a life.
Here’s a list he compiled of great sources DO NOT BUY TOURNIQUETS FROM Amazon. They’re often counterfeit and are prone to failure.


UPDATED list of CoTCCC-Recommended Limb Tourniquets as of 06 MAY 2019.

Over the past year, the Committee on TCCC has conducted a comprehensive review of commercial limb tourniquets. After careful review using specific criteria, the recommended list of tourniquets is now available. The review criteria and specifics on each tourniquet will be published soon in medical literature.

Dark Angel Medical is a quality sight as is ITS Tactical. You can contact your local EMS outfit or fire company to see where they get their equipment.
Stop The Bleed is constantly holding seminars that you can take for free I believe . They’re two hours and I’m sure close enough to get done in an am or pm situation.
