It was a long time coming.
In a blog post I wrote several months ago I noted how a number of major US television stations had aired 3-4 minute segments about our TFT approach to surviving violence.
Unfortunately each ended their stories focused on the comments of a university legal “expert” explaining (incorrectly) how taking the class somehow might leave you held to a “higher standard.”
Well, hats off to KABC television in Los Angeles and their experienced anchor/reporter, David Ono, for creating a video segment that gets it right.
Prior to creating this piece, David took time to attend an entire 2-day TFT seminar (as a participant not a reporter) to make sure he understood everything about the system he was reporting on.
Not unusual for David. He’s also trained with the FBI & the LA SWAT team’s Special Enforcement Bureau prior to other assignments. Add in the fact he’s gone into the jungles of Central America to report on drug runners and you realize… the guy understands the realities of violence. (and maybe why he’s won eight Emmy awards!)
Anyway, the resulting video is the first TV media piece that objectively shows the message TFT instructs to each of our new clients.
It’s a full 5 minutes long. Check it out below.
In the comment section below this video at KABC’s website, was this note from Black Belt magazine Executive Editor, Robert Young;
Again, our thanks to David and to Robert.
