Colby Taylor is the founder of Covenant Defense, a faith-based cooperative network operating out of Traverse City.  Its focus is to educate people and to equip them with the knowledge and skills to preserve their safety and community.
According to Colby, times are changing in America, but most people don't know what is going on.  Covenant Defense urges people to become proactive rather than reactive with respect to personal issues like self-defense and international issues like terrorism.  Colby has trained in the Isrsaeli form of self-defense known as Krav Maga, and with the aid of a volunteer demonstrated several techniques.  Anyone interested in learning more about Krav Maga is urged to attend a seminar Saturday in Traverse City.
