I started my Path with a storefront Moo Duk Kwan dojang when I was 5 years old after getting bullied by teenagers who would knock off my glasses and burn me with cigarettes on my walk home from school... a few years later, my Da taught me eleven different ways to kill a man with a steak knife... shit got progressively worse from there.
FTW SELF DEFENSE is the most popular of all my books for good reason... it tells you all the dirty little secrets other books leave out in a brutally honest, zero fucks given manner. You will learn about how street people act and think. You will learn about pocket sized weaponry, from Mace to knives to small handguns. You will learn about Mad Max style offensive driving techniques. Most importantly, you will learn about the police, the courts, and gaol. It has been well reviewed by respected authorities in the field and I recommend this book highly. It is also available in audiobook form.
HARDCORE SELF DEFENSE is my first commercially published book and I recommend it to advanced practitioners only, with grave reservations. It was originally written in the early 1990s, the manuscript sitting in a battered briefcase for nearly a decade before being offered in a 3 pamphlet set. Paladin Press refused to publish it, being even too controversial for them after the "Hit Man" lawsuit which caused them to censor their own catalog by eliminating books on certain topics which could be construed as promoting unlawful activities. HCSD was written in the non-permissive environment of upstate New York, where it is almost impossible for the average citizen to acquire a CCW permit, virtually all types of knives and impact weapons are technically illegal to carry, and if you kill a burglar breaking into your home at night you will be charged with murder. In addition to addressing acquiring the combat mindset via self-hypnosis, various techniques of using the blade and belt, and an encyclopedic compendium of improvised weaponry, it also details the best possible methods of disposing of a dead body in order to protect oneself from unjust prosecution.
NO BULLSHIT GUIDE TO WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE is exactly what it says it is. It addresses the topics of: street harassment, unwelcome suitors, stalkers, and date rape drugs as well as a brutally effective series of practical self defense techniques guaranteed to work if implemented correctly. Target audience is females between the ages of 18-35 engaged in high risk lifestyles. Also available in audio. Dedicated, with respect, to Mia Zapata.
