This martial arts book is full of examples of real-world life-threatening situations, and in each case the clear, step-by-step photographs and text illustrate an effective solution--showing you how to disrupt your attacker's strategy, disarm them, damage or destroy their ability to harm you, and disengage quickly so you can move to a more secure location.

- De-escalation techniques
- Spoiling knife and firearm draws
- Neutralizing knife and firearm attacks
