With crime and threats occurring more often around the world, including here in the U.S., it is naive to think that crime will not happen to us or our loved ones no matter how safe we may think we are. Everyday we are seeing on television, hearing on the radio, reading online, and witnessing violent crimes such as kidnappings, shootings, rape, and assaults that have even led to the death of the victim. Below is a video of a child being snatched away from his mother.
Without a doubt, violence and crime is around us and if it presents itself like it unfortunately did in the video, it is vital for us to protect ourselves and our families. But what if we feel that we are not prepared enough or want to learn the appropriate skills to do so?
Enter security expert Gino Collura. He is the CEO and Founder of Ground Ready International Training, also known as G.R.I.T. Mr. Collura’s experience includes a strong background in close protection and anti-kidnapping in South America, as well as many years of field work in various parts of Colombia. He is often interviewed on television news and also travels around the country giving seminars on security. In addition, Mr. Collura is completing his PhD in neuroanthropology focusing on counterinsurgency operations and guerilla warfare. He founded G.R.I.T as a, “protection education firm that specializes in close quarter tactics that keep law abiding citizens, law enforcement, and military personnel safe.” Furthermore, G.R.I.T, “seeks to instill and educate you with the tools and mindset needed to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your organization in an increasingly unstable world.”
What’s it like? In the video below, Mr. Collura gives an explanation of the G.R.I.T experience, as well as his clients who speak about how it has changed their lives.
Also, G.R.I.T’s instructors are composed of very seasoned and well-educated former military and security specialists who provide us with the knowledge, training, and skills to protect ourselves.
Mr. Collura is certainly a positive influence in our world. One in which he is empowering people from all walks of life, adults and children, not only to protect themselves and their families, but to not let fear take control in times of threats. As he continues teaching a variety of workshops and specialized courses including Ladies Self-Defense/Assault Prevention, Empty Hand Defense, and Travel Security, Gino Collura is certainly a powerful influencer.
G.R.I.T is Tampa-based where Mr. Collura teaches classes, as well as throughout the U.S. You can find his website at:
