Prelude to a Fight Update

I just noticed how long it has been since my last update.


So, in order to keep everyone in the loop, here is the update and status report.

I am currently putting the finishing touches on Prelude to a Fight. This has taken longer than I thought for a couple of reasons, but I am certainly not complaining, because being busy is a lot better than being bored. I had an opportunity to be a part of another project, the details of which will be here as soon as the time is right, and once that was done I jumped back into work on Prelude.

I thank all of you for your continued readership, support, and positive emails. You are what makes it possible for me to do this, and I appreciate all of you!!!

Prelude to a Fight

There is a title to the book I am working on now, Prelude to a Fight .subtitle Personal Safety Before the Physical Conflict Begins.

The book is to be about the things that happen prior to a physical conflict that are under our control. This is a logical follow up to my two previous offerings, Slapping Dragonsand Ignorance, Myth, and the Martial Arts

I hope to have it out by August, but I can say with confidence that it will be available this year. I thank all of you who have supported my work in the past, and feel grateful that people find value in what I write. Once the book is finished, I will announce it here first. Thanks everyone!

New Book in the works!

After several months of research, fact checking, and getting ducks in a row. after a good dozen rewrites of the outline, I have started on a new book. My goal is to have it available by August of this year. If you have not already given a “Like” to the Facebook “Wallace Smedley’s Page”, please do so as the updates there are probably going to be more frequent. But the word on the completion of the project will be here first. I thank all of you for your support through the years, and promise this book will be the best yet!

Keep an eye out for updates!

What is the best way to stop bullies?

Questions kept popping up after my video on bullying:

Why do the anti-bullying programs seem to be ineffective, and sometimes even exacerbate the problem? Is there a good way to stop bullies?

There is a simple reason, at least in my opinion, of why so many of the anti-bullying programs fail: these programs do not address two basic issues.

The anti-bully activists come up with ideas and slogans and promote ever expanding definitions of what exactly is bullying. This is part of what has brought us to a point where bullying is Continue reading “What is the best way to stop bullies?”

How should you stand before the fight?

I have been getting a lot of email lately with questions that are not really answerable in article or email format, unless I want to take a lot more time to respond that what I have available. Here is a video answering one of the more frequent questions; how should I stand before the fight begins?
