All things considered, this is a book that should be read by anyone who is interested in improving their timing and speed skills both in the ring and in street combat.
Rating: 4 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Monadnock Defensive Tactics System).
I could spend several more paragraphs giving you a educated and intelligent overview of the material presented by the author, but really what's the point! This book is so well done and literally has valuable information on darn near every page that to sit and dissect it would be fruitless and pointless.
As I stated earlier, there are a couple of points of contention that I have with some of the author's comments concerning justification in the use of force and ramifications of the use of force, but that I fear is merely a matter of personal opinion and personal experience. While I don't necessarily disagree with what the author is saying, I do feel that there is another viewpoint that needs to be looked at.
If you are reading this review and haven't read this book, stop reading this right now and click on the link to purchase this book. I guarantee you that you won't regret it. I know I didn't!
Martial Artist/Creator of numerous books and DVD's.
Either way, worth having.
