When you’re fighting for your life, how hard you hit is often not nearly as important as where you hit. Veteran police officer and long-time martial artist Loren Christensen knows this well, and in this explosive video he shows you how to hit the targets that will put any attacker out of commission. Drawing from more than 25 years of hard-core street experience and nearly 40 years as a martial artist, Christensen first explains why the eyes, ears, nose and throat are reliable fight-stopping targets. Then, using a simple angling system as a guide, Christensen teaches you how to instinctively target the vital areas of the face and neck from any angle, in virtually any situation. To ensure that you get the greatest effect from all your strikes, Christensen also teaches you the tricks of positioning your attacker to set him up for a strike and shows you which striking tools work best for specific targets. Finally, he shows you how to condition yourself both physically and psychologically to fight to the death, using little-known desensitization drills developed by military close-combat experts.
Loren Christensen began his law enforcement career in 1967 when he served in the army as a military policeman in the United States and in Vietnam. He joined the Portland, Oregon, Police Bureau in 1972 and retired in 1997. During those years, he specialized in street gangs, defensive tactics, dignitary protection, and patrolling the bizarre streets of skid row. He now writes full time and teaches martial arts.
