TURNING FEAR INTO POWER
The FAST Defense System
by Bill Kipp
Everyone feels fear. Unfortunately, most people even trained martial artists have received precious little guidance in how to handle it. As a result, they typically either freeze like a deer in the headlights or flail ineffectually when faced with a threat. Instead of accepting the adrenalized state brought on by stressful situations as an inevitable, instinctual survival response, they second-guess it, dread it, deny it and fight it.
In this book you’ll discover how to transform fear from dreaded enemy into powerful ally. Using a dynamic self-defense technology known as adrenal stress response training, author Bill Kipp has helped literally thousands of men, women and children face their fear head-on, control it and harness it as the tremendous source of power nature intended it to be. Here he describes how the FAST Defense system develops awareness and communication skills that can help you avoid being targeted as a victim, desensitize you to the verbal abuse and threats that attackers use to control their victims, and equip you with verbal defense skills that will stop most altercations before they ever become physical. Finally, he reveals how this fast, effective, scenario-based training methodology empowers you to unleash the fearsome force of adrenaline to fight for your life when all else fails. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 272 pp.
