Summary and Info
There are many reasons you might begin this book but the only reason to finish it is to learn how to protect yourself and your family from violence. It's not just about a few techniques to ward off a local thug. It's about tilting the playing field completely in your favor, making sure if you're ever in a hostile situation, you walk away with your life. To do that requires an understanding of principles; an education in the facts of violence. Others give you techniques for specific situations. Finish this book and you'll understand why that's a recipe for disaster. Most people stumble into martial arts or combat sports never really considering why. Each trains you for competition in a safe environment, with rules and supervision agreed in advance. Both give you effective tactics for fighting, and are great for conditioning. But if sport fighting is your thing, this book will say nothing to you. Its total focus is real violence, the kind everyone wants to avoid. It's about dealing with life-or-death threats where no rules exist. And that's completely different than sport fighting. And there lies the difference. This book addresses that place where social communication ends and real violence begins, the point where you have no control, and there's no one to help. It's the situations we all pretend doesn't exist... even though we all know they do. The real question is face-to-face with life-or-death violence, can you defend yourself and your family? Because in that moment, nothing else matters. To learn the answer, read this book. You may not like what the authors have to say but by the end you'll see the truth: that there's only one guaranteed way for anyone to walk away from a hostile situation alive. It's not pretty but once you understand it... it'll change your life forever.
