With the knowledge of this technique, and practice, there is no need to fear for your life, and you could walk with confidence through a tough neighborhood. The best aspect of this book is that it can help you move out of that deep fear of survival.

amazing

This is a helpful book to learn the basic principles about self defense, and shows some moves to help you protect yourself if an attack arises, and then escape from the situation.

The author explains that "self defense is 90% brain and 10% body." If you need to make a self defense move to protect yourself then do so, then check around your surroundings for safety, and then make your escape.

This book is for beginners to learn the basics of self defense. There are some illustrations to help you. Some listeners would probably benefit from more illustrations to learn the steps. Several years ago I took a basic self defense class so some of the author's techniques were a refresher course for me. He shares protecting yourself by using parts of your body to get the best results. You do not need advance techniques to have results because in the heat of the moment you just need the basics
