The book is excellent, practical and really dirty !
If you are learning a martial art, your objective is to preserve a
cultural institution. You are mastering the art form for the sake of
the form itself, and fighting competency (if you actually develop any)
is y byproduct of that process. If you are only interested in learning
self-defense, the artistic side of the fighting arts is not important
to you. How you look when you drive the your elbow into someone's face
does not matter, as long as you do it with enough power and speed
to get the job done - says the author.
The book starts with the author's autobiography - from the streets of
Sacramento to the Special Forces soldier.
Author then expalains the nature of the brutal violence under the
titles like murder, rape, roberry, kidnapping, carjacking, aggravated
assault and battery and terrorism. Then winning mindset and positive
attitude is being established.
After that the author introduces tools - natural body weapons,
vital targets and finnaly - the dirty dozen self protection
techniques and scenarios.
If you are serious about self protection - buy it.
With a little practice you will not miss.
