What if you could speed up your martial arts and self-defense training?
What if you could avoid spending precious time on the things that will not help you improve?

In this book, bestselling author and expert martial artist Wim Demeere compiles some of the best posts from his blog. He covers martial arts and self-defense as primary topics but also connects them with many other aspects such as training, teaching, health, psychological factors and much more.

This volume includes not only updated versions of those posts, it also offers you contributions by other world renowned experts such as:
*    Loren W. Christensen
*    Marc MacYoung
*    Rory Miller
*    Alain Burrese
*    Kris Wilder
*    Mark Mireles

This book isn't about untested theories or hypothetical situations but instead focuses on practical advice you can use right away to gain new insights into violence, martial arts and self defense. Wim Demeere and these other authors team up to share the hard-earned knowledge they learned in decades of shedding blood and sweat in both the mean streets and the ring. Some of the articles you'll read in this book are:

*    MMA sucks, traditional martial arts suck more.
*    From the Octagon to the Street
*    How to learn techniques from video
*    How to piss off your training partner
*    MMA against multiple opponents
*    How to avoid shoulder injuries in the martial arts
*    The limits of martial arts knowledge and skill
*    Three keys to joint lock success

Whatever your fighting art or goal, this thought-provoking book helps you improve your skills and knowledge for years to come.

About the Author:

Wim Demeere began training at the age of 14, studying the grappling arts of judo and jujitsu for several years before turning to the kick/punch arts of traditional kung fu and full-contact fighting. Over the years he has studied a broad range of other fighting styles, including muay Thai, kali, pentjak silat and shootfighting. Since the late 1990s, he has been studying tai chi chuan and its martial applications. Wim’s competitive years saw him win four national titles and a bronze medal at the 1995 World Wushu Championships. In 2001, he became the national coach of the Belgian Wushu fighting team. A full-time personal trainer in his native country of Belgium, Wim instructs both business executives and athletes in nutrition, strength and endurance, and a variety of martial arts styles. He has managed a corporate wellness center and regularly gives lectures and workshops in the corporate world. You can contact Wim through his website www.wimdemeere.com and at his blog www.wimsblog.com.
