The book opens by asking the question how much experience does a person need to teach self defence. The author draws on his own experience here, talking about his bouncing days as well as getting opinions from some other instructors which really helped to answer the initial question. I'll let you read the book to get the answer to it.
From here the author goes on to discuss combatives and does a great job of detailing and explaining an actual combatives syllabus that anyone reading the book can follow themselves, or structure their own syllabus around it. Students can also compare their own training syllabus against it to see if theirs stands up in terms of practicality and usefulness. The author is not a fan of fluff, either in his writing or in his training, so the syllabus contains only essential techniques and concepts, but as he explains, if you go deep enough there is a lifetime of learning in it. This section also contains many photos that help to illustrate the text. I found them useful, if a little small in size. It is followed by several chapters on training practices and methodologies that I found very useful.Read more ›
There is only one book you need to buy on S.D. and that is Dead or Alive by Geoff Thompson all others are scrambling up his throuser leg and not coming close to his insight in S.D. This is more of booklet with small printing , there are a couple of good ideas and for one hour I read half the booklet but it lacks ( i have finished the rest now ) , if you want to save yourselve a couple of pounds , think , elbow strike and palm strike with aggression then you have the concept here. nothing much on headbutts , nothing much of foot sweeps nothing on elbow strike defences if you are close in fighting . But my biggest disappointment are the pictures which are so small and very badly taken and no pictures for the drills ( plus the booklet needs much better details about drills " any drills " ) . The booklet is well written but could have been SO MUCH better as i am sure the write knows his stuff.
I have bought lots of books on SD and martial arts and the book that shines thru is Geoff Thompsons book and Ian Abernathey book on locks.I bought this book as a student not as a teacher. I do agree with the author that in martial arts their are to many techniques and SD is the way to go. I am sure the writer could do a much better book than this and i will buy when he does
or if you dont want to go to the time to learn SD buy a good pair of running shoes and when you see the bad guy coming off you go.
The booklet says you can go to the web site and see videos of 30 min in length well i can only find 3 years old videos that are 5 min and these are posted on youtube
The author sells 4 " booklets " on his web site and if you put them all together you still wouldnt have enought for a whole book !
