In a barroom brawl, where your assailant doesnapost care how pretty he looks when he blindsides you and then stomps you into a bloody mess, the formal training procedures and flashy moves you practiced in the dojo will be useless. Author Peyton Quinn knows. As a bouncer in a biker bar, having been attacked by fists, boots, pool cues, and knives, Quinn has learned a thing or two about what goes down in a real fight. As a black belt, he has also learned that martial arts training is useful in a brawl, but it is no substitute for experience. An active participant in dozens of fights and a witness to scores more, Quinn has separated fighting facts from fighting fantasy, and the result is a unique guide to self-defense that can save your ass in places where brawling is quick, dirty, and very violent. 1.
