Sometimes, readers ask if I have samples of my paid ebooks and books. That’s a very fair request. The current ebook requested is Teaching Martial Arts More Effectively (a.k.a. Secrets of Teaching Martial Arts More Effectively).
While the following excerpt is not an example of how you can immediately improve your teaching technique, it does address a very important issue in helping your students to competently defend themselves in a real altercation.

Here’s the link to download the excerpt:

I wrote this about a decade ago, although Dan Inosanto told me this story back in the early 1980s, in Eugene, Oregon.
