Great advice on how to handle all stages of an incident, from the legal aspect to the mental and setting your own level of just how far you are mentally prepared to go.
The Combatives appeared to be a take off from Krav Maga and are very sound and well explained and the pictures are very good. Its a good quick study of how to defend yourself and I most definitely recommend this book.
