"Defend CHECK! Loved it!"
I loved how it grabbed me right from the beginning. I am not an avid fighter. I am a wife, mother,fitness and nutrition expert, and creator of a online transformation program. I have knowledge and experience in the field of fitness. One thing I love about being in this industry I is the constant drive I have to learn more. It has been said that martial arts is the fastest growing sport in America, I believe it and I have seen it come into my own life with first my son, then my daughter and now my husband. We love it!
I love the concept of preparedness, not only in martial arts but in life! That is what fitness is all about, being prepared with our mind and our body absolutely goes with everything I believe in about life.
Psychology is everything and this concept also bleeds out of this book and into our daily lives.
I loved the voice of Rob Actis, I have listened to a few books that I could not stand the voice, thankfully this book was easy listening and easy to follow because of the enjoyable way in which Rob unveils these secrets and keeps true to the authors intent!
To believe in our-self. To let our body react how it should. That we all have the ability to succeed and be winners.
I loved listening to Rob! He is amazing and his voice was perfect. Not too over the top and not too dull. I felt this performance of his was top notch and I actually looked up other books that he has done because of it!
At first I did not think it was a big deal (the voice I listened too) but then I downloaded one I detested and now I always listen first! :) The voice does matter and I loved how Rob uses his voice to engage, enlighten and enthuse! You are amazing Rob!
Avoid the Threat
Easy, loved it.
Distraction and evasion, I also loved. It inspires one to use our brain in sticky situations!
Defend yourself is an empowering book on how to be prepared, especially when we need to defend ourselves. Many of us may think that nothing like this would ever happen to us, until it does. Many of us may think we know what we would do in this type of situation, and yet we know that unless we are prepared both mentally and physically we can fall victim.
My family loves jiu jitsu and our amazing instructor. I even did it once! I need to get back there and this book inspired me to do so! We have learned so much through this sport. I took my 8 year old out of dance and gym and into this art form to gain confidence, she is a different person. These tactics are real, they are amazing and they work.
As a mother I found this book hugely helpful for my brain to understand more about what is going on.
This book helped me feel more prepared on both accounts. I loved it and feel empowered!

"Good overall, would be better in physical form. "
A nice short book, decent at explaining techniques but without visual you are ft to your imagination... For those with no experience in MMA etc... it could be confusing without visuals so I would definitely look up some videos online, just make sure these are reliable videos and not random wanna bees online...
To-the-point recommendations and convincing rationale.
Usefulness of recommendations.
Clear diction, interesting modulation.
Not an appropriate question for a self-help book.
Excellent pay off for amount of time invested.
"Very infomative and to the point!"
He read it at a perfect pace and made it very easy to follow. His voice is very easy to listen to.
What a great way to read a book! I listened to it while driving to work and it made the time fly.
"Fast paced and engaging listen!"
I enjoyed this book... it was engaging and provided an excellent overview of key points for how to safely defend yourself.
Not sure this was the first book on self defense that I had read.
Rob Actis delivered the content a very powerful and engaging manner. He kept me listening for what was next.
It was a good door opener into the world of defending ones self.
I will listen to this book again.
"Loved it! Very informative."
Yes! I like how the book was broken down into easy to navigate sections on self defense, safety and tactics. I would refer back to the book as a refresher.
Since this was more of a "How To" book the main characters for me were the writer and voice talent. The information was easy to understand and Mr. Actis did a great job.
I have heard Rob Actis on national tv spots. He seems to always know who his audience is and performs with that in mind. Very clear, strong and smooth.
The best self defense is to be aware of your surroundings so that you can avoid trouble in the first place. And that running away (when possible) is sometimes the smartest and most resourceful safety tactic of all.
Yes. I was surprised that I learned as much as I did. There were a lot of little details that I will be listening to as a refresher. Plus, the narrator, was very clear and concise in his reading. It was easy to listen to.
The several bits of information that were shared throughout the chapters.
Rob did an excellent job of narrating the book. It was very clear and easy to understand.
