Product Description

This book was developed to aid law enforcement and security personnel in their jobs. These are dangerous professions in which a physical altercation is not a matter of if, but a matter of when. Every physical altercation has the potential to be fatal. In order to increase your odds of survival, it is necessary to seek out and train in defensive tactics and martial arts techniques.<br /><br />However, due to the overly litigious nature of our society, surviving the physical altercation at any costs is not acceptable. To better meet the needs of the current American cultural climate, law enforcement and security personnel have to consider the physical safety of those who are attempting to do them harm.<br /><br />This book presents the basic techniques and considerations that allow law enforcement and security personnel to end a physical altercation while using the least amount of force necessary to accomplish this goal. The techniques presented in this book are also the foundation for effective takedowns and weapons disarmament. <br /> <br />Author’s Note: <br /><br />This book is being released at the same time as Move, Block, Strike: Basic Self-Defense for Everyone. The techniques offered in both of these books are the same. To be honest, we even used the same pictures. However, the target audience and guiding concepts are different.<br /><br />In this book, we focus on the needs of law enforcement and security personnel. As such, you will see that we discuss concepts such as departmental and personal liability, the use of deadly force, the use-of-force continuum, and the need for follow on detention techniques.<br /><br />Please understand that there is no need to purchase both Move, Block, Strike and Move, Block, Seize. These two books are different sides of the same coin. One focuses on law enforcement and security considerations while the other explores self-defense concepts that are not tied to departmental liability.

In this candid and riveting memoir, for the first time ever, Nike founder and board chairman Phil Knight shares the inside story of the company’s early days as an intrepid start-up and its evolution into one of the world’s most iconic, game-changing, and profitable brands.<BR><BR>Young, searching, fresh out of business school, Phil Knight borrowed fifty dollars from his father and launched a company with one simple mission: import high-quality, low-cost running shoes from Japan. Selling the shoes from the trunk of his Plymouth Valiant, Knight grossed eight thousand dollars that first year, 1963. Today, Nike’s annual sales top $30 billion. In this age of start-ups, Knight’s Nike is the gold standard, and its swoosh is more than a logo. A symbol of grace and greatness, it’s one of the few icons instantly recognized in every corner of the world.<BR> <BR>But Knight, the man behind the swoosh, has always been a mystery. Now, in a memoir that’s surprising, humble, unfiltered, funny, and beautifully crafted, he tells his story at last. It all begins with a classic crossroads moment. Twenty-four years old, backpacking through Asia and Europe and Africa, wrestling with life’s Great Questions, Knight decides the unconventional path is the only one for him. Rather than work for a big corporation, he will create something all his own, something new, dynamic, different. Knight details the many terrifying risks he encountered along the way, the crushing setbacks, the ruthless competitors, the countless doubters and haters and hostile bankers—as well as his many thrilling triumphs and narrow escapes. Above all, he recalls the foundational relationships that formed the heart and soul of Nike, with his former track coach, the irascible and charismatic Bill Bowerman, and with his first employees, a ragtag group of misfits and savants who quickly became a band of swoosh-crazed brothers.<BR> <BR>Together, harnessing the electrifying power of a bold vision and a shared belief in the redemptive, transformative power of sports, they created a brand, and a culture, that changed everything.

<b>***A Worldwide Bestseller in 17 Languages!***</b><br /><br /><b> Lasting Change For Early Quitters, Burnouts, The Unmotivated, And Everyone Else Too</b> <br /><br />When I decided to start exercising consistently 10 years ago, this is what actually happened: <ul><li>I tried "getting motivated." It worked sometimes.</li><li>I tried setting audacious big goals. I almost always failed them.</li><li>I tried to make changes last. They didn't.</li></ul>Like most people who try to change and fail, I assumed that I was the problem.<br /><br />Then one afternoon--after another failed attempt to get motivated to exercise--I (accidentally) started my first mini habit. I initially committed to do one push-up, and it turned into a full workout. I was shocked. This "stupid idea" wasn't supposed to work. I was shocked again when my success with this strategy continued for months (and to this day).<br /><br /><i>I had to consider that maybe I wasn't the problem in those 10 years of mediocre results. Maybe it was my prior strategies that were ineffective, despite being oft-repeated as "the way to change" in countless books and blogs.</i><br /><br />My suspicions were correct.<br /><br /><b>Is There A Scientific Explanation For This?</b><br />As I sought understanding, I found a plethora of scientific studies that had answers, with nobody to interpret them correctly. Based on the science--which you'll find peppered throughout Mini Habits--we've been doing it all wrong.<br /><br />You can succeed without the guilt, intimidation, and repeated failure associated with such strategies as "getting motivated," New Year's Resolutions, or even "just doing it." In fact, you need to stop using those strategies if they aren't giving you great results.<br /><br />Most popular strategies don't work well because they require you to fight against your subconscious brain (a fight not easily won). It's only when you start playing by your brain's rules and taking your human limitations seriously--as mini habits show you how to do--that you can achieve lasting change.<br /><br /><b>What's A Mini Habit?</b><br />A mini habit is a very small positive behavior that you force yourself to do every day; its "too small to fail" nature makes it weightless, deceptively powerful, and a superior habit-building strategy. You will have no choice but to believe in yourself when you're always moving forward.<br /><br />The barrier to the first step is so low that even depressed or "stuck" people can find early success and begin to reverse their lives right away. And if you think one push-up a day is too small to matter, I've got one heck of a story for you!<br /><br /><b>Aim For The First Step</b><br />They say when you aim for the moon, you'll land among the stars. Well, that doesn't make sense, as the moon is closer than the stars. I digress. <br /><br />The message is that you should aim very high and even if you fall short, you'll still get somewhere. I've found the opposite to be true in regards to productivity and healthy behaviors. When you aim for the moon, you won't do anything because it's too far away. But when you aim for the step in front of you, you might keep going and reach the moon.<br /><br />I've used the Mini Habits strategy to get into the best shape of my life, read 10x more books, and write 4x as many words. It started from requiring one push-up from myself every day. How ridiculous is that? Not so ridiculous when you consider the science of the brain, habits, and willpower.<br /><br /><i>The Mini Habits system works because it's how our brains are designed to change.</i><br /><br /><b>Notes:</b> <ul><li>This book isn't for eliminating bad habits (some principles could be useful for breaking habits). Mini Habits is a strategy to create permanent healthy habits in: exercise, writing, reading, thinking positively, meditating, drinking water, eating healthy foods, etc.</li></ul>

<p>Just 10 minutes of training per day can help you work towards unlocking your body’s full potential. Beginning with a basic squat (which we as children do naturally but then as adults struggle to perform), ‘The Flexible Body : Move better anywhere, anytime in 10 minutes a day’ guides you through a series of positions, stretches, rolls and balances that re-train your body to move like it once could.<br /><br />Forget everything you think you know about exercise. International model and fitness expert Roger Frampton has developed a revolutionary new approach to movement, designed to get your body working in the way it was designed to.<br /><br />We are born with perfect spines that can move in millions of ways. But our sedentary western lifestyles rob us of our natural range of motion and leave us with stiff bodies, bad posture and a high incidence of back pain. Inspired by advanced yoga practitioners and Olympic gymnasts, and in consultation with leading figures from both fields, Roger has developed a simple but highly effective set of exercises known as the Frampton Method, designed to de-restrict your body and help you reach optimum strength and flexibility with no need for any kind of equipment, weights or gym membership. <br /><br />Split into method and movement sections, the movement sections covers a range of positions from hip actions to headstands, and then explain how to take each movement to the next level as you become more advanced.<br /><br />With a thorough explanation of the philosophy and science behind the method, plus hacks for incorporating it into your day-to-day life, this book will inspire you to put down the weights, forget HIIT, reclaim your body and achieve a level of fitness you’ve only ever dreamed of.</p>
