Overview

The Formidable Fighter Series is a series of booklets for martial artists desiring to learn the concepts that create formidable fighters in the training hall, competition arena, and street. Each booklet is between 5,000 and 10,000 words in length (although, this booklet is slightly shorter) and includes fighting scenarios, training tips, and illustrations. Fight or Flight, the thirteenth booklet in the series, is approximately 20 pages long and deals particularly with how to prepare yourself mentally for acquiring the toughness and determination you need to use your skills successfully, and accepting the idea that you might have to fight. Since the advice is not style specific but explores the underlying concepts of personal combat, it is applicable to students of most martial styles.

Fight of Flight includes discussions and exercises on the importance of being aware of the environment one frequents, how to determine whether one should stay and fight or flee when it is possible to make that choice, and how far to take a fight when one has the upper hand.

When signing up for martial arts training, entertain the thought that you might actually have to use your skills someday. Remember the famous theatrical saying: “If you hang a gun on the wall in the first act, you have to fire it before the end of the third.” If you follow the instruction and tips in the Formidable Fighter Series, you will learn how to develop your physical strength and mental tenacity and triumph as a fighter in the training hall, ring, and street.

Formidable Fighter: The Complete Series, a compilation of all previously published electronic books in this series, is now available to a great reduction in price in both electronic and print format. The book is a variation of the previously published book (now out of print), Combat Fitness for the Elite Female Martial Artist, also by Martina Sprague, revised to be particularly suitable also for the male student.
