What will you do in a crisis? How can you train to survive? I think the warrior mindset may benefit from some kind of epiphany. Mine came as a college student when I was mugged at gunpoint. The horror of the experience helped to open my eyes to the fact that evil cannot be ignored on the physical plane, or for that matter, any other. Like the yin and yang, we all have a balance of the pacifist and warrior within. Depending on the circumstance, there is a time to reap and a time to sow. While keeping a calm vigilance as a pacifist maintaining all options of avoidance and flight, the warrior within each of us needs to be ready in an instant to spring into devastating, aggressive, decisive, no holds barred fight to the finish. Each one of us needs to find the motivation to train and flip that switch without hesitation.
Finally, remember that anything is a weapon, and that the weapon does not make the man. Don't ever forget that the your most important weapon is your brain. It will save you when nothing else does. Don't be a sheep, don't be a wolf, be a sheepdog. Trust your instincts, watch your surroundings, be mindful of people who want to cause you and yours harm. After it is all over go home and kiss your significant others and tell them that you love them.
