The best way to defend yourself against an armed attacker is to first understand the strengths and weaknesses of the weapon you face. Using this strategy, Master-at-arms James Keating has integrated his skills in both armed and unarmed combat into a revolutionary system of empty-hand defenses against weapons. This easily learned system is based on universal movements that work equally well against all handheld weapons and will greatly enhance your chances of survival against an armed attacker. In Volume 1 of this series, Keating teaches you the critical skills of his universal method and shows you how to apply it against street attacks with knives, impact weapons and handguns. In Volume 2, he extends its application to defenses against rifles, shotguns and long weapons. In today's world, armed attacks are a fact of life. Get the unarmed advantage you need to be a survivor instead of a victim.
