DEFENSIVE MINDSET Unisex T-Shirt (in dark colors)


In Tiga Tactics Combatives, we teach the 3 Pillars of Personal Protection:

  1. Mindset
  2. Skillset
  3. Toolset

Unfortunately, most other instructors in the self-defense realm concentrate on only #2, while beginners seem oddly focused on #3.

Both are neglecting the most important pillar: Mindset.

But what is it, exactly? Most instructors get “pseudo-science-y” with talk of Cooper’s Color Code and the OODA Loop. We find that is only useful for folks in the military and law enforcement. As civilians teaching civilian combatives, we keep it direct so you can easily incorporate it into your own life.

Our 3-stage defensive mindset is simple: STAY ALERT, STAY HUMBLE, STAY KIND

This slogan is printed on the back while our team logo sits on the front left pec.

This comfy and stylish T-shirt represents our philosophy and serves as a daily reminder that personal protection starts first in your mind and your smart lifestyle choices.


(NOTE FOR ALUMNI: If you’ve trained with us before, you’ll need to create a separate account here. That’s because the Tiga Tactics Online Training Center [which hosts our courses] and this shop [which is home to our hard goods] operate on two different platforms.)
