4.0 out of 5 stars Yes you can - 3 seconds? 20 May 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
As a former student of martial arts I purchased this ebook with sceptism. Can you defend your self in three seconds?

Only the individual can answer that question having read the ebook. Certainly it will show how exponents of martial arts can defend them self. The critical arguement is that it is better to avoid having to but if you have to be armed with the skills necessary to defend your self. This ebook will provide some of those skills and for that reason I can recommend it.

An excellent book full of easy to use techniques. Full of very good advice a number of which I was taught and used to good advantage as a street police officer over 50 years ago. But still very relevant today.

This book does exactly what it says on the cover. Inside you'll find all the basics that everyone should know - whether you're a traveller, a student, a housewife, or a businessman, you'll learn something new that has the potential to save your life, and the lives of others. And at this price, you can't afford not to own it. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Phil 14 July 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A lot of what Phil has advised is common sense, or intuition as he puts it. What Phil has done with this book is explain that working with our intuition is the natural and (for those of us who are untrained) most effective technique we can use. I think it's noble of him to recommend escape as opposed to fighting. After reading this book I don't feel overwhelmed, but informed and prepared. This book is well worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very practical and enjoyable 15 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book could even turn an idiot (in self defense IQ) into a proficient fighter
Common sense techniques, they appear easy to follow.
The book was very interseting as a whole and thats alot for someone like myself who hates reading books, I could not put this one down.
The key is to read a few times and practice. It gives hope in the fact that you do not have to be a sensei who can punch through walls before you can defend yourself
probably the most practical book I have ever read.
Hopefully I never have to implement the techniques for real (like most I hate violence), just an insurance policy of self reassurance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some very good ideas, even for a woman 19 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Some very good ideas, even for a woman. I was impressed that this author continually stresses that it is best to walk away from confrontation if you can and to flee as soon as you can for your own safety. Most books i have read on this subject are pure fight fight. This is a very good read for anyone. The author states do not put yourself in danger in the first place and gives some good advice on this subject, but if you find yourself in a situation that is unavoidable he tells you how best to react. Well recommended. Good sound advice from someone who obviously knows what he is talking about.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good basic self defence book 18 Sept. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is a good guide for people, that have no time for serious training, and the techniques shown are simple sound and work if applied properly.

The message given to escape a volatile situation is good advice and the emphasis on fitness to run away, or keep the body in a good physical condition, to counter and attack if necessary, is paramount to self preservation. All in all a good book explained in layman's language that is easy to understand and interpret.

Steve Newman.
