    It could be certainly the nest book on this subject... but it's the only one! But after studying this one, who need another? Contains: analysis of the problem, training scenarios and even physical training advice. Except if you are Mike Tyson or a pro wrestler, you need to read it!

    A Promise Kept
    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5

    As its title suggests, this book directly address the all but certain reality of being physically outmatched in a self-defense situation. As the author points out in his introduction, this crucial topic is all but ignored in the world of self-defense, until now. In more than just a simple „how-to‰ guide, Sammy Franco addresses the physical, mental, technical aspects of how to defend yourself against a larger and stronger adversary. Set up in what I thought was a very helpful and readable question and answer format, the book delves into everything from weight lifting and conditioning to a crash course in offensive blows and natural body weapons. As with all material from Contemporary Fighting Arts, this book is an extension of a comprehensive modern martial arts system of combat, but completely self-contained. The author is considerate of the reader who may not own any of his other books or DVDs or posses knowledge or skills pertaining to self-defense. Everything you need to know about this topic is between the front and back covers of this book. This should be on everyone‚s shelf. It delivers what it promises, pure and simple. Highly recommended.

Mr. Franco spells it all out. Mental as well as physical training is covered to overcome fear of fighting larger stronger opponents. Thank you for taking the time to address the issues in this book.

    This book is what all smaller men need full of insight to help the smaller person defend themselves against the stronger more physical attacker. It gives not only mental but physical training to help with the over coming the fear factor of facing bigger opponents! Mr. Franco is in a league of his own in reality based self defense.
