Self-Defense: Error Detection in the Martial Arts is a graduate-level course in the most important strategic principles of self-defense from the legendary Tristan Sutrisno and the indefatigable Marc MacYoung. Not a manual for beginners or dilettantes, but a key to the highest level of tactical self-defense, this volume concentrates not on a catalog of specific defenses for specific situations but on teaching situational awareness and understanding of the wide range of opportunities, possibilities, and options available to the skilled defender, in any situation. The key presented here is error detection-developing the ability to understand instantly the flaws and vulnerabilities in an aggressor's attack or posture (after a thorough exploration of one's own habitual defensive response patterns in dealing with attacks). With a strong grasp of the mechanics of error detection, the martial artist will be able to step up to a new awareness and a vastly enhanced ability to use an existing arsenal of skills to greater advantage.
Sutrisno and MacYoung bring over sixty years of combined experience to their teaching, and Self-Defense is the fruit of their long study.

From the Back Cover:

Many errors and misunderstandings have crept into what is currently being presented as "martial arts." Students are taught sports-based moves and modern interpretations and told that they are both traditional martial art systems and effective for self-defense. Neither is true. Often, when these techniques fail, the student feels responsible for not doing the move correctly. But in fact, the technique - as it was taught - is missing vital components that would make it both traditional and effective. The fault, of which the instructor is probably not even aware, is not with the student, but with the information that was given to him.
Becoming a Complete Martial Artist introduces the reader to the concepts necessary to restore lost aspects, repair corrupted data, and analyze for errors, whatever martial arts system he studies. In addition, the explanations of fundamental principles that apply to all martial arts systems will assist both the student and the instructor. With a strong grasp of the mechanics of error detection, the martial artist will be able to step up to a new awareness and a vastly enhanced ability to use an existing arsenal of skills to greater advantage.
Sutrisno and MacYoung bring over eighty years of combined experience to their teaching, and this book is the fruit of their long study. No matter your level of experience, Becoming a Complete Marital Artist will help you better understand the depths of your system.

About the Author:

Tristan Sutrisno was born in 1950 in Jakarta, Indonesia. He was introduced to the martial arts at the age of four, when his father and uncle began coaching him at home in the Japanese martial arts and Indonesian Pencak Silat. Sutrisno has taught martial arts at the YMCA and his own school since 1973. An avid martial arts tournament competitor, he has also conducted numerous seminars over the years. He now lives in Sheppton, Pennsylvania, and continues to help promote martial arts in the United States.

Marc MacYoung was introduced to the martial arts at the age of ten. After more than thirty years, he has undergone formal training in karate, wing chun, tai chi, silat, bagua, hsing-i, boxing, Western swordsmanship, and kali. His emphasis has always been to take traditional martial arts and apply them in a modern context, both tactically and legally. He teaches martial artists, and also teaches close-quarter combat to police and military personnel around the world. A Los Angeles native, he currently lives in Castle Rock, Colorado.
