Attack Proof

Attack Proof Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Real violence is not like anything you see in the movies or the ring. Ask any street cop or soldier: Real violence is total chaos and cannot be defended against with either patterned technique training or sport fighting.

Attack Proof presents a proven personal protection system, called guided chaos, for anticipating and fending off even the most brutal assaults. It's based on the real-world experiences and forensic homicide research of a former New York cop and instructor for members of the FBI, U.S. Marines and air marshals, and security personnel for dignitaries.

Attack Proof trains you to become a martial realist by preparing you for the unexpected. Rather than robotic techniques or rules-based sport fighting, Attack Proof teaches you how to adapt, improvise, and survive, creating your defense spontaneously as you need it. With protection strategies for larger assailants, car and airline hijackings, workplace violence, multiple attackers, fighting on the ground and in stairwells, and attacks and defenses using guns, knives, sticks, and canes, Attack Proof is the next best thing to having your own personal bodyguard.

Featuring the same tactics used by select police, military, and security professionals to defend themselves, Attack Proof is the trusted guide to personal protection when real violence occurs.

Synopsis:

Provides men and women with effective self-defense tactics for various potential real-life encounters. Material is presented in an easily understood manner that requires no previous martial arts experience. Content is designed to teach people how to safely handle attacks from both armed and unarmed attackers. Contains true fight stories experienced by the authors to provide insight on how the techniques can be applied. Includes tactics that have been taught and used by the military to remain safe in combat.

Synopsis:

"Attack Proof" goes beyond typical self-defense and martial arts to teach people how to handle violence the way "it" "actually" "is." The expanded edition of "Attack Proof" covers essential tactics, including more than 20 new drills that focus on balance, body unity, and footwork. This book presents you with critical information for confronting violence.
