There is a truth in the world of hand-to-hand combat that too many martial artists aren't aware of or refuse to believe: Every time you discover a sure-thing technique, one that makes all your training partners groan and writhe in agony, there exists out there in the mean streets, a host of people who won't feel it. People like these: Attackers with large muscle bulk or large fat bulk; Attackers intoxicated on alcohol; Attackers under the influence of drugs; Attackers out of control with rage; Attackers who are mentally deranged; Attackers who feel pain but like it. This book isn't about working out with a training partner -- it's about surviving a desperate street attack against a nightmare who doesn't acknowledge what you thought was your best shot. Best-selling martial arts author Loren W Christensen's service as a military policeman during the Vietnam War, his 25 years as a street cop, and his training in the martial arts since 1965 have provided him with real-world experience dealing with violent people, especially those who have a high tolerance to pain. Loren shows you dozens of tried-and-true, step-by-step techniques that target specific parts of the body that will disorient a pain-resistant assailant, destroy his will, and disable his physical ability to keep attacking.

About the author (2010)

Loren Christensen was still a rookie on pro-bation when his police agency recruited him to teach defensive tactics to new officers hired just a few months after him. Since then he has trained countless police academies, in-service officers, transient sys-tem authorities, security agents, hotel security personnel, mental health nurses and criminal justice students. Loren began his martial arts journey in 1965 and over the decades of continuous study has earned 10 black belts in three fighting arts: 7th-degree black belt karate, 2nd-degree black bell jujitsu. and 1st-degree black belt arnis. He borrows from these disciplines as swell as other fighting arts to show you how to make your restraint. control and self-defence tactics more effective, more painful, safer for you and safer for the suspect.
