There are also people who were unprepared and become so desperate for supplies that they end up joining those criminals. Considering that, I think it’s worth taking some time to learn and practice hand-to-hand combat.
This article from The Prepper Journal goes over some of the basics of unarmed combat. Follow the link below to check it out.
