Publisher's Summary

Rory Miller's Facing Violence: Preparing for the Unexpected includes seven elements that must be addressed to bring self-defense training to something approaching complete. These elements are: legal and ethical implications, violence dynamics, avoidance, counter-ambush, breaking the freeze, the fight itself, and the aftermath. Training that dismisses any of these areas leaves you vulnerable.

    Story
    "Another cold clear dose of reality from Sgt Miller"

    As a former practitioner of a martial art it's nice to have some of your assumptions confirmed by someone who's been there and returned.

    However, Rory Miller goes beyond the fighting to show just what a small part physical skills play when thinking about your personal safety and the predators you may come in contact with.

    A great read and sage advice and as ever he raises lots more questions to ponder on.

    "Excellent! Thought-provoking and insightful"

    It is a perfect beginning for getting ready to face violence, which as you learn in the book is much much more than training in martial arts. Both content and the narrator are excellent. The whole is written and read in a matter-of-fact no-nonsense manner, with clear-cut insightful observations. I highly recommend it

    "Very informative"

    This book educates the reader in an area seldom examined. “Why using violence is rarely the best choice to deter violence.” Instead of spending valuable time and money learning how to inflict injury on another human being, the only guaranteed life saving method is to learn how to avoid violent people and dangerous situations.

    "Excellent book"

    This book provides much gold in the sense of knowledge attained the hard way. You would do well to read and or listen to this book if you serve in a public safety capacity or a person who trains in self defense.
