Self-Defense Association

Lifes EXPERIENCE Teaches you these Things , as one of my mentors used to say "one ounce of EXPERIENCE equals  ten Tonne of Theory" and I find that the practical applicatios of all things is really where its at , you will never replace PRACTICAL EXPERIENCE its too bad that most of books and theories written are by those who have the least practical and life experience , you find common sense and practical experienced people either write very brief practical books or simply do not have the time , thank God for the internet where I can load some of my 'lifes experiences' and one day i will get around to writing the books .

Yours in Life,
