Rather than develop my own online store with products I personally recommend, I decided to -- instead -- refer my customers to the online stores of my partners: Verbal Judo Institute, Vistelar Training Group, and Arma Training, with whom I have great confidence and trust.
Here is a brief description of each of these stores and information about how to access them.
As the Director of Research and Development for the Verbal Judo Institute, I'm actively involved in the development of new programs and products focused on preventing verbal conflict from escalating to physical violence. The products we develop are sold through the Verbal Judo store.
This online store includes all of Dr. Thompson's books, digital media training products and merchandise. You can access this store by going to http://verbaljudo.com and clicking on Online Store on the right.
The Vistelar Training Group is an organization I helped form in 2010 to serve the verbal, physical and situational self-defense needs of civilians. Our mission for this organization is pretty simple -- to help the general public feel and be safe and able to defend themselves if attacked.
The Vistelar Self Defense and Home Surveillance Online Store is pretty unique because it is not just a smorgasbord of hundreds of products, like most of what you find on the Internet. Instead, we only offer products that we personally recommend.
You can access this store by going to http://vistelar.com and clicking on Self Defense Online Store on the left.
Arma Training is a company founded by Dave Young, who I 've been working with for over 20 years. He is my partner in the Vistelar Training Group (along with Doc Thompson) and one of the top tactical self-defense trainers in the world.
For the Arma Training store, Dave Young has taken a unique approach --- he requires professionals to be Arma Training members in order to view prices and to make purchases. Dave does this because he offers special discounts to his members and doesn't want these to be accessible to the general public where their visibility could potentially compromise the pricing strategy of the vendors he works with. Like the Vistelar store, the Arma Training store only includes products Dave personally recommends.
You can view this online store -- without the prices visible - by Clicking Here.
