Threat response & Training

"It is not right for us to engage in the shedding of human blood, for vengeance or retaliation. But when the Lord commands or inspires his servants to counsel the sons and daughters of Israel to lend their aid in the work of righteous warfare, that is different. … We are to arise in our might and in our strength and go forth to victory; not with a desire to shed blood, not with the desire to destroy our fellow creatures, but in self defense and because we do want to maintain and hand down to our posterity those sacred principles of liberty that have been revealed from on high.”
-President Charles W. Penrose, counselor in the First Presidency, Conference Report, Oct. 1917, 21

"The fight for freedom is God's fight... When a man stands for freedom he stands with God. And as long as he stands for freedom he stands with God. And were he to stand alone he would still stand with God... Any man will be eternally vindicated and rewarded for his stand for freedom."
-Ezra Taft Benson, "An Enemy Hath Done This"
"Make sure that you do not use any thing [to assist] while doing pushups, don't lean on a bench or anything to make it easier.' . . . the most common self defense situation will be hand-to-hand and . . . our basic automatic reaction is to push someone away. This is why it [is] an important exercise."
