From the publisher:
What threatens you? In this follow-up to Defensive Shooting for Real-Life Encounters, noted self-defense expert Ralph Mroz puts the answer to that question in context, highlighting how the hardware components of self-defense (gun, knife and empty-hand skills) are inexorably linked to the critical software (will, skill and awareness) required for self-preservation. In his straightforward, down-to-earth style, Mroz revisits awareness training, including a fresh look at Jeff Cooper?s color codes and Col. John Boyd?s OODA Loop, and then delves into the nuts and bolts of edged weapons and firearms ? emphasizing weapon accessibility, street-realistic techniques that are easy to execute under stress and practical equipment while downplaying convoluted academic theory and fancy moves.
A collection of his articles and columns that have appeared in Combat Handguns, Guns and Weapons for Law Enforcement, Tactical Knives and other magazines, this book was compiled with a law-enforcement audience in mind, but the principles, tactics and training methods presented apply to anyone who is serious about practical, realistic self-defense training. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, illus., 192 pp.
