If you want to win, and not just survive, in a fight for your life, mind-set is at least as critical as tactics.
In his book, The Combative Perspective, Suarez shows how desire for victory, elimination of uncertainty, situational awareness and willingness to act can give you the mental edge.
This book is the perfect companion to Cooper’s classic Principles of Personal Defense.
This book is subtitled The Thinking Man’s Guide to Self-Defense, which is an apt title. In my experience mindset is every bit as vital to survival as training.
If you are serious about personal defense then you need to read this book.
I have studied Gabe Suarez’s work for some time, and I believe that it is quality training material in a time when the combative’s field is glutted with not always valuable material.
If you want to carry a gun for self defense, or if you stock up on ammunition for some future disaster, then you owe it to yourself to become a student of the combative mindset and learn what it takes to survive am armed encounter.
It is not a normal human reaction to pick up a gun and run toward gunfire, but it may be necessary to defend your loved ones. Please take the time to learn how to do it tactically and with some edge to your odds.
