I came across this video recently. The main instructor is James Williams, and his self defense system is called the System of Strategy. The dude excels at what he does. It may seem cheesy or even somewhat fake but, believe me this guy is an expert. I figured some might get a kick out of this: I guess I never really realized just how devastating a book or rolled up magazine could be, and especially a bright flashlight in the eyes at night. Even if I find myself in a deadly situation without my gun, after seeing this I won't hesitate to blind the attacker with a flashlight and beat them with a book! lol Interesting stuff to say the least.
