As a police officer who has instructed hundreds of officers in the fighting arts, and a martial artist for more than 30 years, Loren Christensen has won his share of fights. His theory is that self-defense should never be complicated; fighting is too fast, furious and dangerous for complicated maneuvers. If you are forced to fight, he teaches, it is your responsibility to win; you owe it to those you are sworn to protect, your department, your partner, your family and friends, and yourself. This is not what they teach you at a police academy. But it is what Christensen, in his blunt and often laugh-out-loud style, shows you how to do in Far Beyond Defensive Tactics.

His fighting program fits the needs of working cops everywhere, including showing you:

  • how to disarm attackers
  • prevail against multiple attackers
  • strike the two best targets for disabling a hostile person
  • use the ground to your advantage
  • deal with people under the influence of drugs or alcohol who are not affected by pain compliance holds or chemical sprays
  • protect your gun at all costs
  • create witnesses that will back you up in court or when questioned by Internal Affairs
  • get the most out of minimum training time
  • What is the most important weapon you have on today's streets? Your gun, your badge, your bulletproof vest? Maybe none of these. It could be the knowledge about defensive tactics contained in this book. It's your thin blue line between you and the bad guys. 

Loren Christensen, a retired cop and long-time martial artist, teaches you how to disarm attackers, prevail against multiple attackers (and Internal Affairs), strike the two best targets for disabling a hostile person, use the ground to your advantage and deal with people not affected by pain compliance holds or chemical sprays.
