Great Book, 16 Feb. 2011
This book re-confirmed to me many things that I thought were true but had never had much experience of.
Martial Arts is a great thing to do, but many do not understand how far removed it is from
real life. This book discusses this and explains why, backed up by someone who has more experience
than most in real life confrontation.
The different mindsets of attackers and victims, the perception of 'permission' that victims have when
needing to defend themselves, is very interesting.
I am lucky to have instructors that understand this fully and constantly remind you about 'real' life from
personal experience (which is consistent with this book) and not a perception built up from media images etc.
It is re-assuring to hear this from another source.
