“End all martial-arts-related fears with these specific instructions, case studies, and examples…”

(Get rid of physical panic: Lead-heavy Limbs that won’t move, “Cotton Brain” that Prevents Clear Thought, and Not Reacting with Your Best Moves and Tactics In an Emergency)

Keith PascalKeith Pascal, here:

I don’t know about you, but I originally got into martial arts, because I was tired of getting picked on and seeing my friends get picked on in school. Bullies seemed to lurk around every corner. I also knew that the world outside of school was filled with people who actually got a kick out of hurting others.

I wasn’t what you’d call paranoid, just realistic. I wanted to be prepared, and as I said, I was sick and tired of being hassled.

For me, martial arts was going to be the secret weapon against all bullies at school and the bad creeps of the world.

(Is this why you got into martial arts, too? If not, what was your motivation for learning actual, practical self-defense?)


I Was Learning Self-Defense Skills, But I Still Worried…

Even after a few years of studying practical, no-rules self-defense, the fear, that I had hoped to conquer with increased martial arts skill, remained. I couldn’t shake it. I still worried.

When someone hassled me, or a friend, I still felt panic. My arms and legs felt weighted down with mental cement. (And my face flushed. Just think, I couldn’t hide how scared I was from the guy hassling me. The burning cheeks gave me away.)

And although I had ample opportunity to practice and eliminate butterflies in the stomach, I still reacted with less-than-my-best when sparring in front of the class.

I choked a little. Sometimes, a lot. I performed much better, one-on-one, during practice time, but I couldn’t seem to call on those skills under pressure.

So, I asked my teacher for help. He started me on the road to more confidence. On my quest for an internal calm confidence, I added studies at the second largest psychology cognitive lab in the country. I poured over anything that had to do with fears and phobias.

After receiving teacher’s certification and conquering those fears, I tried the methods on many of my students who suffered all sorts of martially-based fears.

Over time, I (we) refined these methods. A tweak here … a new suggestion there. And I put all of the information into a book.

About the Author


To be frank, I wrote this book as a pet project; the subject is near and dear to me. I absolutely knew that I could help others overcome any sort of mind-numbing, panic-creating fear … at least those martial-arts related.

(Don’t ask me about overcoming a fear of heights, spiders, or being confined in small spaces. While I might be able to come up with a few suggestions, after all the research I did, those aren’t my areas of expertise.)

I know how to help people overcome fight fears, self-defense fears, and any martial-arts fear. I’ve been helping with those since 1982, when I taught my first self-defense class.

I was authorized by my martial arts teacher, an original Bruce Lee and Ed Parker Black Belt, to teach that class in 1982, even though full teacher’s certification in JKD and Twin Dragons didn’t come until 1985. (I was that eager to start helping people defend themselves.)

Here’s what people are saying about Control Your Fear: A Guide for Martial Artists:

control-fear-reviews2“Wow!  Keith Pascal has written an excellent book on controlling fear in martial (and other) situations.
“The book is filled with practical ideas for developing one’s own plan for overcoming fear.  That makes sense since Keith is always focused on practical martial arts in his writings.
“As someone who has studied the management of fear in other situations, several things about the book impressed me:  First, Keith realizes that different people will find different methods helpful, so he discusses multiple approaches to managing fear in martial situations.  This allows the reader to choose the method or combination of methods that will be most helpful for them.
“Second, the personal stories Keith includes helps the concepts he presents to “come alive.”  Those stories also help the book to be an enjoyable read.
“Finally, I was extremely impressed with how motivating the book was.  I feel motivated to start training again.  I already found a notebook to use when I go back through the book.
“I’ve read many of Keith’s writings, and I think this book is one of his best.
“Practical, motivating . . . superb!”
–Jay Frasier, College Teacher and Award-Winning Magician

 “The book addresses this issue with practical tips, such as elimination of ego, as well as advice on how to get more from your training, and some great catch-all techniques for actually ending an incident quickly, and effectively.
“You’ll discover how to manage and work through the complex range of emotions we experience in emergencies, so that we are completely ready and able to use our arts when absolutely necessary.”
