Taking Sides: The Age of Compassionate Control By Joe Anderson

Taking Sides: The Age of Compassionate Control By Joe Anderson

June 22, 2020

In all of my 55 years, having lived in rural Montana, Washington, D.C., Northern and Southern California, and Oxford, England, 2020 stands out as a year of divisiveness and side taking.  It’s been pervasive and loud: red/blue, us/them, safety/economy, black/white, and perceived right/wrong.

I have always combined my love for sales and a desire to be of service in my work.  This began with sales in banking, for Union Bank in California and then in relationship banking for Capital One Bank in New York.  When I came back to finish school at the University of Montana, I studied business management focusing on entrepreneurship.

I have lived most of my life in Montana.  When I graduated college and began my career as a classroom teacher, I never thought that a conversation about guns in schools would impact my life.  Then Columbine, Sandy Hook, Parkland and multiple other school shootings happened and unfortunately, it became part of our daily routines in schools, with active shooter trainings and lockdown drills and evacuation plans.  My two kiddos are in 3rd and 5th grade, and this new reality scares me.

I’ve been fascinated with Asia and martial arts since I read Fred Neff and Bruce Tegner books in the 1970s and practiced moves in my living room. I’ve been at it ever since, including living and training in South Korea while studying Hapkido, in which I hold a 5th degree black belt.  My first book on self-defense was published by Paladin Press in 1996, and since then I’ve put out 11 instructional DVDS and eight more books.

If you had told me in art school that the self-defense industry would play such a huge role in my career and life, I would have laughed out loud. But here I am, with close to a decade in the self-defense industry, and not only am I grateful to be working in it, but I also love it.

Healthcare Safety Preparedness Post-Covid-19: Protection from Violence and Virus By Shawn Paul & Joe Anderson

May 18, 2020

If the nation has learned anything from the Covid-19 crisis, it’s that advance planning in safety preparedness is vital to our ability to respond to emergencies, whether they’re viral, violent, or otherwise. Healthcare organizations in particular need procedures and sufficient up-to-date equipment to quickly respond to potentially confusing and fluid circumstances.

As Captain at the University of Montana police force, one of my favorite responsibilities was leading a program called Immediate Response to an Armed Intruder. We taught university staff and faculty and local public school teachers and healthcare workers how to survive the response gap between a violent incident starting and the arrival of help from someone like me.  Our model was Escape, Deny, Defend (run, hide, fight).  Now these people did not sign up for workplace violence, and I could tell the “defend” part was intimidating and frightening for them to even think about.
