Beginners Guide to Self Defense
by Harv Simpson
Before you even start learning how to defend yourself, we need to ask the big question: what is self defense and how can you use it in your everyday life? It’s an important question, but I think most of the common answers are wrong.
- Learning to fight
- Learning to hurt people
- Learning to be safe
There is truth in all of them, I think. But the real answer is trickier. You see most people looking to learn self defense want to learn how to fight. They want to learn how to hold their own against tough opponents, but the truth is that self defense isn’t about fighting.
It’s about stopping fights.
Fights aren’t what they look like in the movies. They aren’t fluid and step by step. They’re messy and they’re fast. They happen before you know they’re happening and they’re usually over just as quickly. Most fights only give you one chance to end it. If you miss that chance, you’re in deep trouble.
Learning to fight isn’t a good solution; it’s only makes things worse.
What you need to learn is how to successfully stop a fight before it gets too far advanced. And, yes, sometimes you’ll have to do things like hurt other people and get hurt yourself. But the key is to stay as safe as possible by defusing threats quickly and effective.
I don’t like hurting people and I hate getting into fights. I’ve certainly never started a fight and I’ve never fought for the thrill of it. But I realized a long time ago when I was attack by meth-head looking for cash to get his next fix that I had to learn to keep myself safe. I couldn’t spend years or hundreds of dollars on martial arts, so I started doing my research and learning the things that would make a difference – that is how I came to write my book Top Secret Self Defense.
How to Learn Self Defense
When I started writing my Top Secret Self Defense ebook, a lot of people thought you couldn’t learn self defense from reading a book.
They meant well, but they misunderstood…
Anyone who tells you can’t learn a martial art from a book is right. Anyone who tells you that you can’t learn to defend yourself from a book is nieve.
Books like Top Secret Self Defense aren’t about learning how to be the next Bruce Lee. That takes years of training and discipline. What I teach you are the easiest moves you can use without formal training to end a fight fast.
I teach what I’ve found to be the easiest ways to bring any attacker to the ground fast and any body can do these moves because they are designed to cause a lot of discomfort in some very vital areas.
So the next time someone says you can’t learn to defend yourself just by reading a book, tell them about a book which will prove them wrong – Top Secret Self Defense.
The Legality of Self Defense
I’m not about to tell anyone to go out and use these moves every time they get pissed off and it’s important to realize that self defense can be dangerous. You can hurt and kill people if you’re not careful.
But the point of learning moves like those in Top Secret: Self Defense is to make sure both you and your opponent make it home for dinner tonight. To make sure that you can have the confidence to walk alone and still feel safe. It’s about protecting yourself and your right to a little peace of mind in this world.
Attacking people and hurting people isn’t fun. It’s isn’t supposed to be fun or cool, but sometimes you need to defend yourself and in those moments, you can’t hesitate and you’ve got to know what you’re doing. That’s where i hope to help you.
