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 and includes fighting scenarios, training tips, and illustrations. Winning Matters, the fourth booklet in the series, is approximately 60 pages long and deals particularly with how to approach a scenario with the appropriate mindset that allows one to act rather than react and beat the opponent to the punch; in short, how to be first and understand that winning is more important than how one plays the game. Since the advice is not style specific but explores the underlying concepts of personal combat, it is applicable to students of most martial styles.

Winning Matters includes discussions and exercises on the need for unarmed fighting skills, how to be first when grabbed, struck, or taking balance, how to manipulate timing and stay mentally ahead of the adversary, the value of determination and playing rough also in the training hall, and how to deal with the unpredictability of fighting and not giving up.

We admire certain military leaders such as Napoleon Bonaparte not because he fought an ethical battle or because he had an admirable character, but because he knew how to win. 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.
