Customer Review

on 31 October 2009
A thoughtfull and realistic view on violence from someone who has obviously experienced it ,unlike most self defence teachers/sensei's. Having experience of both martial arts and true violence my opinion ( for what is worth)is that it is a sad fact that most martial artists even the talented ones have no idea what a real fight or attack is like and get a very rude awakening when they find themselfs in a violent confrontation. If you have an interest in learning without putting yourself in potentialy violent situations then books like this are a must for if we can put our ego's aside the reality is nothing like what we have been brought up to expect due to brainwashing by tv,films,dvd's and sorry to say some inexperienced martial arts teachers. This ranks along side books from people like Tim Larkin, Geoff Thompson etc as an honest view of the reality of true violent encounters and may help dispel the mith of having a good old punch up and if it only makes you stop and think before letting a situation escalate then it has done some good. A book to read more than once and take to heart.
