New Self-Defense Book | Summer 2012

Posted in Miscellaneous, News, Products, Self-Defense with tags , , , , , , , on February 23, 2012 by chencenter

It has been 3 years since the release of book one, The ‘Essentials’, a book that I mainly wrote to supplement my workshops and give readers a concise and straight-forward path towards a better understanding of personal self-protection.  Now, I am on a tremendous project; one that I’m very excited to announce here today.  I’ve started a separate web page and twitter account to keep people updated… and to give those interested – the quick news, exerpts and (in the future) ‘specials’ that supporters of this project deserve! and on Twitter @GTSbook

As many of you already know, teaching self-defense has been a deep passion for me.  And my work and interaction with this website, The Combative Corner, only fans the flames of that desire to share and to educate others.

Book #1 proved to be a great experience.  One in which I found myself truly enjoying the process of writing.  Once the testimonials came pouring in from friends, colleagues, and professionals in the field (many of which I’ve never met), I became overwhelmed with excitement.  People I’ve read and highly respect like; Tim Cartmell (Effortless Takedowns and Throws), Dr. Yang, Jwing-Ming (YMAA) and Lee Morrison (Urban Combatives) were now reading me, and enjoying my work! (testimonials)

But “my work” is not even close to finished yet!  And the beauty of all this, is that (although it’s “my work”) it is, in large sense, a shared, a collaborative process.  What forms a great and insightful book, comes from “riding on the back of giants.”  To the many that have inspired, influenced and shown me “the way.. there’s a bit of you in every page.  (You’ll see!)

Join my on this journey by following my tweets @GTSbook and/or keep my new page bookmarked!
