Some 'experts' say that you should be submissive when attacked at home or by a stranger. You won't find that advice here, although you might use it as a ruse before you claw your assailant's eyes and annihilate his groin.
Your ultimate goal is to get away but you don t achieve that by being meek and docile. You get away by drawing on that hard-wired survival instinct to attack him like an enraged lioness protecting its babies.
In Self-Defense for Women - Fight Back, martial arts experts Loren W. Christensen and Lisa Christensen teach you to use your hands, forearms, elbows, teeth, knees and feet to survive the type of attack that unsuspecting women become the victims of every day. And you will learn that you're surrounded by a limitless cache of weapons that you can use to your advantage against a larger assailant.
If you're ready to learn to fight back, Loren and Lisa know exactly what you need to survive an attack in your home or on the street.
Unfortunately, even responsible parents who warn their kids about drunk driving and other risky behaviors commonly send their children off to school without having what may be the most important talk of all:
"What would you do if someone showed up with a weapon?"
In Surviving a School Shooting, Christensen teaches parents how to work with their children – from elementary schoolers to teens – to develop an age-appropriate plan of action that includes developing an awareness of surroundings and critical thinking skills. Within the pages of this book are ideas and techniques to teach kids how to feel safer at school; when to tell adults about rumors or threats; how to mentally rehearse a response to a shooting; and what to do when a shooting occurs: when to run and how to run; when to hide and how to hide; when to fight and how to fight.
Just as a fire drill prepares a child to calmly follow a path to safety in a burning building, the information in Surviving a School Shooting will train students to begin thinking strategically, defensively and offensively in case violence erupts at their school.

MUSINGS ON VIOLENCE
By Loren W. Christensen
Bestselling writer Loren W. Christensen has written many well-reviewed how-to-do books. In Musings on Violence, Loren takes a different approach and conveys his thoughts on training for violence, surviving it as it happens, and managing the aftermath. He also discusses what it means to be a warrior—a martial artist, a cop, soldier, and citizen.
Loren has been a martial artist since 1965. He is an inductee into the martial arts Masters Hall of Fame and holds an 8th dan in karate, a 2nd dan in jujitsu, and a 1st dan in arnis.
A 29-year veteran of law enforcement (ret), Loren brawled one-on-one with outlaw bikers, an Olympic Games powerlifter, construction workers, anarchists, crazed dopers, and the violent mentally deranged. As a Military Policeman in war-torn Saigon, Vietnam (then ranked the most dangerous city in the world), he experienced, as he said in a recent interview, “twenty years of violent police work condensed into 12 months.”
In short, Loren knows what he’s talking about.
