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 Dragons, and 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!

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!

This is a quick video on the random nature of the outcome of fighting. I hope the point is made, and I hope you enjoy!

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?”
This is a remake of an earlier video I made for people experiencing bullying. I hope it covers the important points and helps people.
