No one likes feeling unsafe. Especially if you're short or of a slighter build, you've probably faced this feeling far too often throughout your life. People see your smaller stature as a weakness.
And to an attacker, you look like the perfect victim. Weaker. Lighter. It's like they can already imagine how easily they will be able to take you down and overpower you.
Because really, let's be honest. Size does matter.
When you're facing an attacker who is bigger and stronger than you, you're already at a disadvantage. They'll have a greater reach, hit harder and if they manage to get you on the ground it's probably game over. You'll be overpowered and there's not a lot you can do.
But that's all about to change.
You don't need to be the biggest person in the room to be able to defend yourself, and you certainly don't need to be the strongest in order to deliver a devastating attack to an unsuspecting opponent. I've been training in mixed martial arts for over ten years now. During this time I've seen 300 pound giants who could lay me out with a single punch being repeatedly taken down by a 150 pound trainer.
Again and again.
I'm going to let you in on a little secret here. When it comes to fighting smart, if you want to win you've got to play to your strengths. You've got to be smarter than your opponent.
We've all got an edge, and in this guide we'll teach you how you can gain one too. You'll learn how to defend yourself, the secrets behind attacking a larger opponent, how to make it through a kidnapping, and we'll cover some of the best self-defense weapons on the market.
Because the trick to surviving when you're at a size disadvantage, is to be a smarter fighter.
Master this, and you'll be able to defend yourself no matter what.
Ready? Right. Let's get straight into it.
