Books are wonderful to have and gain knowledge from but I will tell you that the only way to learn any form of self defense or martial art is to spar.
Even practicing alone you can only learn so much. when you find yourself in a situation the only thing that will carry you through is focused muscle memory.

Yes there are some very good publications covering the topic. Attending classes and sparing are also essential to developing ones ability to defend ones self. So a rounded approach seems to be the solution. Including some reading thanks for the link.

I have a friend who has this book. I had a good long look and it seams more geared toward selling DVD's than teaching anything much. No offence but I call it like I see it....

He says this: This book has little information and is heavily trying to sell DVD's. Would not recommend to anyone.

I don't disagree with you Paul but you should get the book and read it....I'm sure you will be surprised by of the insights. Believe it or not most self defense is 80% mental and 20% physical.
To win a fight you need to be EXPLOSIVE and be willing to do anything it takes to win! I see so often where 2 guys will be in a fight, one guy will punch the other once and then step back and see what happens next. Once you are committed and have thrown that first punch. You need to follow it up until the other person is not gong to be a threat any longer.

My father is old school and taught my brother and I when we were very young how to fight. He would say, don't wait for the other person to throw the first punch. If you know there is going to be a fight. You throw the first punch. Do anything it takes to win, there is no such thing as a fair fight. Pick up a 2x4,a rock or whatever it takes.. Being 8-10 years old, it was kind of harsh. But now being 40 years old and having that drilled into me for all of those years. i am glad he did it.

A book can tell you what to do, it can describe how to do it, it might even tell you why but unless you make the moves with real contact you will never know what it is to do it.

I'm certainly not against books but any skill must be practiced to be good at it. One year in a class doesn't teach you much more than how to "think" about what you are doing and how not to hurt yourself when you fall but it is better than five years of reading books.

Agree, most people when hit pause for a brief moment while their brain figures out what just occurred. At that moment many fights are won and lost…

That's true, sometimes even the person that throws the first punch pauses to see what is going to happen..
