Self Defense

Attack Proof: The Ultimate Guide to Personal Protection      "This book is a terrific source for learning real life self defense. It presents, explains and illustrates - in a clear, straight forward manner - how people can avoid becoming a victim, as well as how to successfully defend against virtually any kind of physical attack. It is based on the principles of Ki Chuan Do, the martial art that was created by John Perkins. 

I attended a seminar by Master Perkins and his colleagues several months ago, and I was astounded by the effectiveness of Ki Chuan Do in action. The ease and speed with which Perkins - along with several of his students - made short shrift of various attackers, was simply amazing. These were not rehearsed or choreographed "plants", as I was later able to verify, but actual volunteers from the audience, some of whom were advanced black belts in different martial arts."

Strong on Defense: Survival Strong on Defense: Survival Rules to Protect You and Your Family from Crime       "This book is truly amazing - I think it should somehow be required reading for everyone. A rather difficult & uncomfortable read, nevertheless it is important information that simply can't be ignored in today's society. He discusses, in sometimes graphic detail, violent crime today & how to avoid being a victim of it. Implementing his recommendations is not for the faint of heart, but then again, neither is being violently attacked. While I recommend it for everyone, I give a special recommendation for women, those who know women, those who have women in their family or those who have any contact with women. Give it as gifts to those you love, buy it & loan it to those you like, recommend it to those you don't care much for. Get the picture?
