Taking self-defense tactics and training to a whole new level, this series features a variety of real-life scenarios, clearly illustrating how to diffuse a dangerous situation, make a safe and speedy escape, or practice smart—and legal—self-defense. All techniques are given a concise breakdown to ensure they are easily retained and practiced by civilians, active practitioners, members of law enforcement, and military personnel alike.
Utilizing a fresh and innovative approach, this overview provides both mental and physical methods in preparing for every stage of the conflict spectrum. Topics include protecting the box, wall-fight kicking, the fight-and-write exercise, hog-tie defense, the clinch escape, mind over pain, "musical weapons,” two-seat person rescue, and "walking the gauntlet."
