I’ve said before that all of us should always be learning to become better protectors, providers, and patriots.
That’s why I started our Warrior Life Academy, in fact.
One of the ways I stay training (when I’m not learning directly from all of you) is to read as much as I can that will help me improve my skills.
And you can learn a LOT from even a short book, the kind of thing you finish in a single sitting.
For example, one of the most famous little books in the shooting world is a short one by Jeff Cooper called Principles of Personal Defense.
A lot of people consider it one of the best little short books on self-defense ever written, and they’re probably right.
Whenever I read a different book that reminds me of Cooper’s Principles of Personal Defense, I know it’s worth my time.
Books like this give you “warrior wisdom” for TODAY’s warrior living.
(It’s almost like I picked the name of our company for a reason, you know?)
One of those MODERN books of warrior wisdom is Ernest Emerson’s The 7 Strategies of Hand To Hand Combat.
This little gem of a book is PACKED with 35 years of insight from a Tier One hand-to-hand combat instructor.
But this isn’t just a “how to” book; it’s a book of combat philosophy and how to apply that philosophy to being a [email protected]
It includes things like…
Emerson’s “Three Laws of Combat” – and the specific tactics he uses to implement them (like why and how to destroy a person’s balance)
His strategies for choosing and using techniques – in other words, how to decide what specific move to use, and how to know which moves are best!
How to understand – and dominate – your “fight or flight” process
How to become difficult to hit – and how to hit the other guy FIRST, before his attack can occur
There’s a lot more, all packed into a nice, short read.
Now, you could buy it a certain giant online book site… if you want to pay an extra five bucks you don’t need to pay.
That’s right – this isn’t a digital download, but a paperback book.
(And no, you don’t have to watch the “mandatory” video – just move your mouse like you’re going to click off the page and a window will pop up that let’s you skip it.)
There are a few more “no thanks” windows to get through, and a final pitch at the end, but you don’t have to enter any information in that.
I think this is a great little primer on warrior philosophy…
…And something that can help YOU, too, become a better protector and provider for the people you care about.
Do yourself a favor and check it out now – because every one of us can always become better warriors.
