5.0 out of 5 stars Practical, Relevant, and Useful 17 Feb. 2014
By Escape - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Practical Defense for the Untrained Person by Gunner Morgan is finally a book
that provides relevant, realistic, and detailed information that can be used.
There are a lot of “self-defense” books that provide no useful information. This
book on the other hand actually has specific information that is actually
useful. While the focus of this book is the “untrained person” the information
is still really applicable to the experienced as well. This book covers:
Mindset, stress reactions, breathing exercise, realities of conflict, different
types of fighting styles, targets to strike and weapons of opportunity. If you
have never been in a fight this book will tell you exactly what you need to know
in a straight forward manner that is realistic and practical.

Overall Assessment:

Overall, Practical Defense for the Untrained Person is an excellent resource for
those who need to know how to handle the toxic realities of violence.

3.0 out of 5 stars Basic thoughts on self defense 16 Feb. 2014
By FJ1200 - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First, as the author states, there is no way to explain actual self defense techniques in a book and he doesn't try. I've read these ideas before but written by another author. Basically, you can't really use martial arts in a real world self defense situation so you should really find a training program that uses real world defense techniques. Or as the author states, "Reality Based Training" (which shouldn't be capitalized but is). That's pretty much the gist of this book. Saying that you don't need to get into a program that gets you into shape too and not saying that you need to keep your training going beyond 40 or so hours is doing a disservice to the reader, but that's just my opinion.

All in all there are some pretty standard ideas in here that you will find in other books and the references that are mentioned will get you much farther along than this book will but this is an OK place to start. But I've read better and I don't think a 38 page book is worth the three bucks that the author is currently asking.

If you are a banana slug with no instinct for survival this book is for you. If you must do something but need motivation this is for you. If you lived in a big city obliged in a barracks move on.
