Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the many ironies of martial arts is that the more you learn, the less likely you are to have to use it as your confidence and understanding of violence grow. Nathaniel Cooke wanted to find a way to articulate this, to give people the same knowledge without the years and years of rolling round on padded floors in Japanese pajamas that usually goes with it. andlt;iandgt;How Not to Get Hitandlt;/iandgt; is the result of this desire.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;Self-defense isn't a series of techniques or moves; it's an attitude, a strategy, a life skill. And it's one you already have. Everything you will ever need to stay safe, all the tools that are required, mother nature has already given you through thousands of years of evolution.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;By understanding the behavior of others, and understanding your own innate responses to fear and aggression, you should be able to spot and deal with the most violent scenarios before they begin because preventing fights is just as important as winning them. And for those times you can't, here you will find a series of universal, physiological principles that will increase your odds of survival in most situations, with most attackers, without having to get into something as undignified as a fight.andlt;BRandgt;andlt;BRandgt;This is a book on personal safety for people who understand that they best way to deal with trouble is not to get into it in the first place. Told in a light-hearted, irreverent style, andlt;iandgt;How Not to Get Hitandlt;/iandgt; will take you on a journey through the funny side of violence, its roots in our revolutionary past, and where it fits in to modern society. This self-defense book will help you plan an proper defensive strategy and will help keep you alive in life threatening scenarios. It answers the question nobody asked about self-defense: "How can I make sure I'm not there in the first place?"

Synopsis:

Staying safe in a violent world

Synopsis:

The average person isn't looking to be in a situation where fists are going to fly, but many of us have found ourselves there anyway. At that moment, it's probably too late to do anything about it. But how do we change circumstances so those situations don't happen? How Not to Get Hit is a book on personal safety for people who don't want to learn to fight, but do want to learn how to avoid those situations where a fight is likely to develop.

Told in a lighthearted, irreverent style, How Not to Get Hit takes you on a journey through the funny side of violence, its roots in our evolutionary past and where it fits in to modern society. Self-defense isn't a series of techniques or moves, it's an attitude, a strategy and a life skill. This book will give you an understanding of why people resort to violence, how they use it and gives you the knowledge to manage those situations to create a better outcome.

The book includes chapters on:

  1. The Psychology of an Attack
    • How to see it coming—spotting violent intent
