USA Best Books Award WINNER - 2016The speed and brutality of a predatory attack can shock even an experienced martial artist. The sudden chaos, the cascade of stress hormones--you feel as though time slows down. In reality, the assault is over in an instant. How does anyone prepare for that?As a former corrections sergeant and tactical team leader, Rory Miller is a proven survivor. He instructs police and corrections professionals who, in many cases, receive only eight hours of defensive tactics training each year. They need techniques that work and they need unflinching courage.In Drills: Training for Sudden Violence Miller gives you the tools to prepare and prevail, both physically and psychologically. He shares hard-won lessons from a world most of us hope we never experience.- Train in fundamentals, combat drills, and dynamic fighting.- Develop situational awareness.- Condition yourself through stress inoculation.- Take a critical look at your training habits."You don't get to pick where fights go," Miller writes. That's why he has created a series of drills to train you for the worst of it. You will defend yourself on your feet, on the ground, against weapons, in a crowd, and while blindfolded. You will reevaluate your training scenarios--keeping what works, discarding what does not, and improving your chances of survival.Miller's "internal work," "world work," and "plastic mind" exercises will challenge you in ways that mere physical training does not. Sections include- Stalking- Escape and evasion- The predator mind- Personal threat assessmentThis is a fight for your life, and it won't happen on a nice soft mat. It will get, as Miller says, "all kinds of messy." Drills: Training for Sudden Violence prepares you for that mess.

Today, we live in a world where we are less exposed to violence than at any other time in history. However, we also know that violence can come knocking on our door at any moment. Preparing for this possibility means more than physical safety; it means being clear with ourselves about the ethics of violence. Can violence be justified? When should we fight? How should we fight? And in situations when things have gone badly, may we kill? These questions are not only for politicians, soldiers, and police officers, but are also important considerations for civilians whose lives do not normally intersect with violence. Whether advocating for government policies, marching in the streets, or defending ourselves and loved ones, a coherent moral framework is essential to good decision-making. May I Kill? examines the efficacy of different approaches to non-violence and Just War Theory. By scrutinizing these ethical theories, the reader is encouraged to critically examine occasions for the use of force from a moral perspective, whether nations at war or violent encounters in our own neighborhoods. We may then determine how best to develop ourselves—body, mind, and spirit—to respond effectively and make the world a safer place.
