The formal launch of BLACK TREE signals a new era for self-awareness, survival techniques and a personal level of self-confidence that the public demands in today’s world of uncertainty.
In the United States alone, the latest formal reports on committed crimes is staggering. Although the latest reports reflect previous year’s data, the indications still are clear. We need to be more self-aware and ready to confront unexpected scenarios that can threaten lives. Data collected during 2015 show an estimated 1,197,704 violent crimes committed around the nation. Violent crime includes murder, rape and sexual assault, robbery, and assault.
The data can become more alarming when you consider how it especially applies to women and to women on college campuses across the country. According to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network), college women, 18-24 years old are among the segment of women facing an elevated risk of sexual violence. It’s why parents should include BLACK TREE as part of the college prep for all their children.
Globally, according to Numbeo, a comparison website, more than 50 other countries have a higher crime index than the United States. The need to be aware of your surroundings and prepare yourself in advance of a life-threatening circumstance is global in nature.
Rather than relying on informal instruction, BLACK TREE brings forward a unique approach that begins to set a standard for how people can begin a personal journey toward self-awareness and self-confidence.
An elite cadre of retired and former US Navy SEAL and Special Ops military personnel are now applying a level of expertise to personal and group instruction about techniques that improve awareness and practical techniques for survival. However, training goes beyond awareness and survival because of the public’s growing appetite for firearms.
A recent report by CNBC says that globally, the legal small arms market is forecast to grow to $5.3 billion by 2020. That means more firearms being handled by more people without the necessary skill set to make others around them feel safe. That’s why BLACK TREE incorporates gun handling and precision shooting into the mix of its elite training curriculum. When appropriate instruction accompanies the ownership or exposure to firearms, then they can be less threatening, more fun and more useful when necessary as a component in self-defense.
The entire approach to self-awareness, safety and gun handling can be a boring proposition, much like driver’s education. As a result, BLACK TREE Technology, the research and development operation that supports the training offered by BLACK TREE incorporates the use of technology with virtual reality — and soon, augmented reality — components that put you into real-life scenarios where you can apply head knowledge to sharpen practical skill. This is a differentiator that brings safety training into a new world.
Whether you visit BLACK TREE personally or eventually experience its elite training in a virtual setting, our goal is to educate you, excite you and prepare you for survival and for life.
