After nearly thirty years in martial arts, 18 working with violent criminals in Corrections and a year as a contractor in Iraq, I now teach and write on the subject of violence. I've been a military medic; a tactical team member and leader; a corrections officer and sergeant.
Basically, I'm a little scarred up, but generally happy.

Rory Miller has released his 'next' volume of his famous Chiron Series as an e-book through a few different outlets. Titled Chiron Vol.6 , 2010, it's affordable at $2.99 through smashwords.com where you can buy it in several formats! I think this series was my first introduction to who Rory is - and I haven't looked back. I have enjoyed each and every e-book, and can only compare them to the joy I get out of reading my Bathroom Reader's - able to read short bits when time permits, and always something new to learn!
If you aren't familiar with Rory, but want to learn from an expert on violence - about violence - pickup any of the Chiron series or go read his blog:
Rory is a deep thinker, so be prepared to get a real education on something you think you might be familiar with, then learn why you really aren't that familiar with it at all!
If you deal with violence, you owe it to yourself to get educated - how to spot it, how to avoid it, how to deal with it. Even LEO can learn something here from an 'operator.' Don't kid yourself that your training was enough exposure, trust me on this, it wasn't. Think you know how to deal with violence when you encounter it on the job? Try doing it without backup, or all those belt tools, then come talk to me about it - let me know how that worked out for you. Let's face it, if you're relying on your academy training, your tools, and your backup, you're not ready to deal with violence the way Rory can show you to.
