WHY MOST OTHER BOOKS GET IT WRONG
They all begin with you being attacked. In reality the attack began a long time before the assault began. Non consensual violence begins with SELECTION of the victim. Next comes ISOLATION. The book will teach you how to run counter-surveillance and develop your situational awareness so you'll know in advance you're being set up. After the bad guy isolates his intended victim there will be a distraction phase consisting of some VERBAL patter. Verbal aggression is also always present in attacks in bars. "What are you looking at?" "You were looking at my girlfriend" If you can say something to make the situation worse then you can learn to say something that just might make the situation better. Again, the answers to that and more are in the book.If you can learn how to master those first 3 phases of a criminal attack then you rarely need to get in to the physical assault itself. As Sun Tzu said "The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting."
Buy it and learn how to keep you and your loved ones safe. Get a copy for anyone you care about.
About the Author
Nick Hughes is a former French Foreign Legionnaire, bodyguard to the rich and famous and martial arts instructor. He holds black belt status in several styles of Karate, Aikido, Judo, Ju-jutsu as well as ranks in military unarmed combat and filipino martial arts. He has both boxed and kick-boxed professionally and competed in Judo competition internationally. As a bouncer in some very rough clubs, and a military police officer in the Legion, he learned first hand what martial art techniques worked and which ones didn't. That puts him in a unique position compared to a lot of instructors who are teaching what amounts to theory. Wanting to move up in the security world he decided to pursue a career in diplomatic security and quickly found out a background in Special Forces was going to be an asset. With that in mind he joined the French Foreign Legion as both a para-commando and military police officer. After leaving the Legion he worked for various agencies all over the world looking after clients such as members of the Saudi Royal Family, VIPs, businessmen and rock stars. During that time he began writing for Fighting Arts International about practical martial arts and teaching on various bodyguard training courses. He appeared on Spike TV's "Deadliest Warrior" in the series penultimate episode about the French Foreign Legion versus the Gurkha. He popped up on Paladin Press' radar and filmed a series of instructional DVDs and began working on his 2nd book on self defense. He has also produced an app called I-bodyguard which is the salient points from his book which is available on both I-phone and Android. He is now on a quest to train half a million people in self-defense before casting off his mortal coil and teaches Warriors Krav Maga out of NC and various affiliate schools. He's also currently working on books about his time in the Legion, Hard Skills, Goal Setting and adventures from his security days.
