I know that martial arts experts in karate and kung fu hate "other" self-defense experts that base their advice on facts, interviews with offenders and actual case files rather than old Asian Grandmasters. By the way, those that are the most hostile seem to be male instructors - they just do not get it! What is amazing about fearless is that it really does provide a strong basis for women to stay safe and escape from violence - and it is written by a man who has taken the time to understand women's safety needs.
Please, please, please, I am begging you - if you are looking for resources for self-defence, look elsewhere. Trusting your life or body to anything presented in it is like buying lottery tickets to cover your retirement.
Here's an example of what I mean. Is a sexual predator more likely to attack a woman in a big open area, and stand 3 feet away? Of course not, he's going to be in her face, restricting her movement as much as possible. So why doesn't the book work from there? In a car? On a couch? There's a brief section where the woman is on the ground/on a bed, but it is _so_ brief it is like the author is embarrassed by it all.
I can't say it enough, don't buy this book
As someone who works in this profession, I wish FEARLESS could be read by every young women. It certainly can help empower young women to stay safe in a progressively violent world. Also, the author is a very skilled and dynamic presenter. I had an opportunity to see one of his lectures in New England last fall.
