The author's actual experiences provide the backbone for this realistic look at self-defense. Barroom brawls, street fights, and barracks ruckuses combined with bouncing, security, and bodyguard work taught the author the realities of fighting and street violence. This informative and entertaining guide contains loads of serious lessons and practical advice on fighting and violence and gives you the knowledge you'll need to prevail in a physical encounter (including how to be aware of and avoid an impending fight). In this revised and expanded edition of the Paladin Press classic, Burrese covers the physical aspects of self-defense such as punching, kicking and other related training, but more importantly, he covers the little discussed aspects of self-defense and fighting. Things such as: what you are wearing, who you are with, and most importantly your mental state and realizing when you don't have to fight. If you want to learn how to avoid a fight, or what to do when you can't or don't want to, this book is one you will thoroughly enjoy and learn from.
