How Being Aware Protects You: Ignatius Piazza’s Color Code of Mental Awareness

November 2nd, 2011

How often do you find yourself in a situation that you really wish you knew self defense? Being a 5’3” girl, I often used to catch myself thinking these thoughts. I used to visit a certain bar with some friends. Our friend bartended there and we loved going out, having a good time and being at a bar that we considered safe. Our group was usually between eight and twelve people and we were also friends with the manager, so we were never worried about shady bar activities that sometimes happen. However, one boy changed all of that for me. He struck up a conversation and we went outside on the front sidewalk as many of us often did to escape the noise and get some fresh air for a few minutes.

After having my head slammed into a brick wall and being forced to do some questionable things, I was afraid to go outside by myself. I was nervous to be in places that people could not see me and I rarely walked outside alone after that. If I had been in Code Yellow instead of Code White, this would not have happened. I would have been able to stop the guy before he even touched me, because I would have been more aware of what was going on.

What is this Code Yellow and Code White? They are both phases of the Color Code of Mental Awareness, as taught by Dr. Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. During Ignatius Piazza’s gun training and self defense training courses, he teaches the Color Code of Mental Awareness to help raise your awareness of the world around you. Ignatius Piazza teaches that you can be so aware of your surroundings that you can often see a threatening situation before it becomes dangerous, giving yourself more time to respond, and thus, giving yourself more time to escape.

I became aware of the situation at hand when I hit the bricks. However, at that point, the guy (who was much stronger than me) already had me in a position where I needed to comply or something worse could happen. My newfound headache made it harder for me to think clearly, making it more difficult to weasel my way out from his grasp. If I had taken a gun training course from Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight and learned how to be aware of my surroundings and the people around me, I could have recognized him as a threat from the very beginning and avoided the situation entirely.

Now that I have had some excellent gun training from Front Sight’s incredible gun training instructors, I am more aware of what is going on around me. I catch myself in Code White sometimes and am able to correct it. Ignatius Piazza has helped me because now I know that I never again have to be caught off guard like that. I am safer now because of Dr. Ignatius Piazza and Front Sight Firearms Training Institute… and now I have no problem walking to my car alone, because I know I can protect myself.

Front Sight: Where Size Doesn’t Matter

December 2nd, 2010

How old are you? How much do you weigh? Are you male or female? How strong are you? My name is EmmySue. I am a twenty six year old female. I have decent strength but am short, don’t weigh too much and I do not look very strong at all. I live alone, I don’t have a dog and there are a lot of windows in my house. From past experiences and other statistics, I know that girls my age and size are prone to attacks. Maybe you have similar stats as me. Maybe you are much older or more feeble. Either way, there are a couple different ways we can look at our situations.

One: I am prone to attack, so I should get self defense training and gun training to protect myself.

Two: I am too small, weak, young, old, etc., so I am not going to be able to protect myself if my attacker is twice my size or strength. Getting gun training or another form of self defense training is worthless because I am going to be a victim, no matter what.

I am here to say that having a gun in the house is a comforting thing. I am also here to say that Four Weapons Combat Master, Dr. Ignatius Piazza, of Front Sight Firearms Training Institute, does not mind how strong or how weak you are. He does not mind if you are twenty one or eighty five. Ignatius Piazza does not mind if you have what the world will describe as physical limitations. He will show you how to protect yourself, no matter what your circumstances are. At his gun training school, Front Sight, students learn how to use their own bodies to their advantage, even if their attacker is much larger or stronger. Students at Front Sight also learn that self defense is possible at any age, and it is never too early nor too late to receive it. Small, weak and physically limited people have the same right to self defense as the big and strong people. Why not take advantage?

If you think that you are prone to attacks, one of the best things you can do for yourself is prepare. It has been said before and will be said again: the best protection is preparation. Through lectures, demonstrations and hands on tactical training, Ignatius Piazza teaches his students how to adequately prepare for any situation that might occur. After one weekend with Ignatius Piazza at Front Sight, even the smallest student will have skills that could save his or her life. Ignatius Piazza has studied gun training and self defense for decades. He knows the ins and outs. He knows the tricks. He wants to share it all with you.

Of the two outlooks listed above, which one do you have? I used to have Outlook Number Two. Then I found out about Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. Come take a look at Ignatius Piazza’s self defense gun training courses at Front Sight and see what I mean!

Women and Guns: Should I Rely on a Man?

November 28th, 2010

Many people think that if they want to get gun training, they have to know at least something about guns beforehand. Common statements include, “I do not own a gun, so I can’t get gun training,” “I am scared of guns,” or, “I have never even seen a gun outside of pictures or movies.” While these comments are made by both men and women, I have found that women say them more. Why? I am a woman, so I can see how guns can be intimidating. They can be heavy, hard to handle and scary. But they do not have to be. If a woman knows the right way to handle a gun, her weapon can offer her a sense of peace and security that no man can. Women, how does it feel to not have to rely on a man for protection? Pretty amazing, I would say!

Dr. Ignatius Piazza offers solutions to our concerns at his gun training school in Nevada called Front Sight Firearms Training Institute. “First, how do I get gun training if I do not have a gun?” Ignatius Piazza offers all you need at Front Sight, even if you have no supplies yourself. From guns to ammunition to protective gear, Front Sight has it available to you. If, on the other hand, you prefer to use your own gun and gear, that is also an option at Front Sight. Ignatius Piazza wants you to be as comfortable as possible with your gun training, so whether you need to rent gear or use your own, you have your choice!

“I know nothing about guns and am worried to get any form of gun training. Isn’t handling a gun dangerous?” Dena Sponkeim, a student of Ignatius Piazza, was in your boat before her gun training. After her self defense gun training course at Front Sight, Dena stated, “If you want to know about gun safety and improve or learn how to properly utilize a weapon, come to this course. I literally knew nothing about guns prior to this, but now I am eager to continue my journey.” Ignatius Piazza is extremely experienced in gun training. Concentrating on gun safety, Ignatius Piazza can transform even the largest fear into something unbelievable. He has the ability to instill an incredible amount of information in a short period of time, bringing people to a level of comfort and even confidence, even if they know nothing to begin with. At Front Sight, it does not matter whether you are a complete beginner or a seasoned shooter; Ignatius Piazza will give you the gun training that you need.

Being a woman, I know that I am more prone to attacks. It is a sad fact of life. As women, it is important that we know how to protect ourselves, because there will not always be a man there to do it for us. I urge you, women, to take a self defense gun training course at Front Sight. No matter where you are now, Ignatius Piazza will change your life.
