The author, a former police officer and self-defense instructor, was motivated to write this book because of the UN report that up to three million women are murdered annually and many more raped. This victimization could be reduced considerably if women understood the concept of "Deadly Attack Survival". This book was written primarily with women, small men and seniors in mind, but the tactics apply to everyone.<br />I used to believe, as do most martial art and self defense experts, that self defense cannot be learned from a book...you must receive lessons from an actual instructor. After training in China for several years, I have changed my mind on that subject. I still agree that most self defense skills must be physically taught by a qualified instructor, but this book is about the one unique exception to that rule.<br />This book is not is not just about personal protection, self defense tips or self defense for woman, it is much more than that. It is pointless to learn numerous self defense techniques yet they don't come to your aid, mentally or physically when under attack.<br />You only need to know one or two techniques to defeat any attacker, but before that, you must understand how your mind has been pre-condtioned over a lifetime to be fearful and intimidated by big, strong, aggressive men. Once you have read this book, you will understand that these men are as vulnerable as any teenage girl. Once you overcome this pre-conditioning and learn how to program your mind to react automatically and instinctively to an attack, it will change you forever...you will have achieved personal power.<br />For more information, go to: www.bcoxbooks.com

December 17, 2017, I was in Rockwall, Texas (Dallas suburb) for a weekend run. I had been pondering how to celebrate my 50th birthday in 2018 through running exploits. I announced to some of my running buddies that I wanted to run a marathon a month to celebrate. I had done a total of 21 marathons at this point over a 16-year period. So, this was a big lift for me. I had done three marathons in three months in 2014-2015 and two marathons two weeks apart in 2016 (NYC and Philadelphia). However, doing 12 in 12 months was an entire different level. I knew one thing for sure, I was going to learn quite a bit about running marathons. At the start of this blog I am 11 marathons in and have 3 more planned this year. That's right, my 12 in 12 has become 14 in 12. I wanted to use this week's blog to share the 26 things that I have learned about marathons this year.

Grace and Seabreeze Equestrian Center. They’ve been an institution in Central Florida for decades. But now it’s the end of the line. The community around Seabreeze has been torn up by resort development, and Grace is ready to retire gracefully to the ever-receding countryside, with a smaller barn and smaller ambitions to match.<br /><br />Or not.<br /><br />A shot at making a few extra bucks by renting stalls to a trainer specializing in parade horses becomes a new obsession for Grace’s assistant trainer, Kennedy -- and a shot in the arm for Grace, who finds herself charmed by the local theme park’s equine manager, Mark. Not ready to cede the area’s equestrian experiences to the theme parks, she begins to think she can beat them at their own game. Which, unfortunately, won’t be easy to explain to Mark.<br /><br />Trying to balance a barn full of boarders, aggressive new neighbors, a troublesome staff and a relationship with a man whose business model is in her crosshairs isn’t easy. Grace has been in the horse business a long time... but it's never looked like this before.

This consuming series is the prefect shade of forbidden with just the right touch of taboo, and will grip you from the first page to the very last." -- Kennedy Ryan, Top 40 Amazon Bestselling Author<br /><br />The move to World Cup Academy of Gymnastics is the greatest challenge Adrianna has encountered.

As Adrianna fights to regain her focus, he pushes her body to the extreme, leaving her mentally and physically exhausted. <br /><br /> Kova underestimates Adrianna's endurance, and gravitates more toward her, despite his internal battle raging within to stay away. They try to disentangle themselves, but the tension between coach and gymnast mounts, engulfing them both in a forbidden world of deception and passion. <br /><br />The one place where they should never feel alive, is where they find complete absolution.

<p>The book sets forth theories about motor learning and control that provide lessons for learning any sport or physical activity. For example, a central idea in the book is that through years of practice, a physical activity becomes effortless both mentally and physically, as if the body executes complex and difficult movements without conscious control from the mind.</p>

FROM ADVANCE READERS<br /><br /><br />"This book is hot hot hot!"<br />"From one who has been there."<br />"One of the best martial arts authors ever.”<br />"I love Loren's humor.”<br />"Street knowledge."<br /><br />As a martial arts student and teacher since 1965, Loren has trained hundreds of students, competed in dozens of tournaments, and trained with many true martial arts masters.<br /><br />Loren was never a martial arts movie actor or a tournament champion. Instead, he applied his skill set over and over in the extraordinarily mean streets of Saigon, Vietnam as an Army MP and as a police officer in a large city.<br /><br />He was involved in shootings, riots, and more fights than he could ever count. He worked as a bodyguard for presidents, vice presidents, an assortment of political candidates, a high-profile religious figure, an infamous criminal, and others. The path he traveled in the military and law enforcement required him to call upon his martial arts abilities over and over.<br /><br />Those experiences—he considers them opportunities— taught him much about violence, the martial arts, and the human condition.<br /><br />Street Lessons is about his journey.<br /><br /><br />CONTENTS<br /> <br />Foreword<br /> <br />Introduction<br /> <br />Section 1: The Early Years<br /> <br />Chapter 1: High School: The Fight That Didn’t Happen<br />Chapter 2: It's Just Pain<br />Chapter:3: "We Can Beat Anyone With This"<br />Chapter 4: First Belt Test<br />Chapter 5: Breakthrough At 3 AM<br />Chapter 6: Dairy Queen, A fight, And Jail<br />Chapter: 7: The Evolution Of My Karate Uniform<br />Chapter 8: Kata And Sparring Competition<br />Chapter 9: Tai Chi, Wind, And Ice Rain<br />Chapter 10: Finding The Zone<br />Chapter 11: Vietnamese Language School<br /> <br />Section 2: The Street: Lessons Learned<br /> <br />Chapter 12: Military Police<br />Chapter 13: City Police<br /> <br />Section 3: Miscellaneous Items<br /> <br />Chapter 14: It's Just Pain<br />Chapter 15: Speed<br />Chapter 16: Magic<br />Chapter 17: Improvising<br />Chapter 18: Self-Defense In Cold Weather<br />Chapter 19: Discipline<br />Chapter 20: Overtraining<br />Chapter 21: Work Your Favorite Techniques<br />Chapter 22: The Art Of Fighting Without Fighting<br />Chapter 23: Expert Witness <br />Chapter 24: Training My Kids<br />Chapter 25: Writing About The Martial Arts<br />Chapter 26: Those Who Have Pointed The Way<br />Conclusion<br /> <br />About the Author<br /> <br />More From Loren W.

This consuming series is the prefect shade of forbidden with just the right touch of taboo, and will grip you from the first page to the very last." -- Kennedy Ryan, Top 40 Amazon Bestselling Author<br /><br />Adrianna Rossi is no stranger to the rigorous demands required of her body. Years of pain and determination make her one of the best. Olympic glory is the ultimate goal, and she'll do anything to achieve it. Even if that means leaving home to attend World Cup Academy of Gymnastics, a training center that serves one purpose--producing champions. <br /><br />Perfection, precision, and dedication are required of his athletes. When two time Olympian Konstantin Kournakova is persuaded into training the young hopeful, he immediately regrets it. She doesn't come close to his high standards. As the relentless pursuit of her dream keeps her striving, a passion is ignited within him.<br /><br />Kova's power and domination, coupled with Adrianna's fierce tenacity, reveal there is more for her body to learn. Every interaction can be misconstrued, but there's no mistaking the darkening of his gaze, the lingering of his touch, or the illicit image of his bare skin pressed against hers. Integrity is on the line. One toe off the beam and their forbidden desires could ruin everything they've worked for, throwing it all off balance.

Complicating matters is an intriguing, Argentinian dressage trainer with secrets of his own.<br /><br />One part romance novel, one part literary fiction, one part love-affair-with-horses, Ephemeral is told from the viewpoint of a quirky, old cow horse who not only invites you into his world, but also shares his sensible and soulful outlook on human hearts and the meaning of true horsemanship.
