Publishers Description: Self-Defense: Error Detection in the Martial Arts is a graduate-level course in the most important strategic principles of self-defense from the legendary Tristan Sutrisno and the indefatigable Marc MacYoung. Not a manual for beginners or dilettantes, but a key to the highest level of tactical self-defense, this volume concentrates not on a catalog of specific defenses for specific situations but on teaching situational awareness and understanding of the wide range of opportunities, possibilities, and options available to the skilled defender, in any situation. The key presented here is error detection-developing the ability to understand instantly the flaws and vulnerabilities in an aggressors attack or posture (after a thorough exploration of ones own habitual defensive response patterns in dealing with attacks). With a strong grasp of the mechanics of error detection, the martial artist will be able to step up to a new awareness and a vastly enhanced ability to use an existing arsenal of skills to greater advantage.Sutrisno and MacYoung bring over sixty years of combined experience to their teaching, and Self-Defense is the fruit of their long study.
