An Introduction to Celebrity Protection and Touring offers a peek behind the scenes of the close protection industry, more commonly known as the bodyguard business. More than the stereotypical bullet blocker, the modern protection specialist is a skilled practitioner who utilizes verbal judo much more than its physical counterpart. This audiobook, written by industry experts, Elijah Shaw and Dale June (USSS ret.), also narrows the focus, centering in on an exciting, but misunderstood, sector that involves working with celebrities ranging from actors to musicians and entering into their world of touring, filming and promotional appearances. While many may think that celebrity protection is one size fits all, nothing could be further from the truth, as you are not only dealing with the protection of the client, but the client's reputation. All this with the added pressure of the entire world looking over your shoulder, just waiting for a misstep. With real world advice, tactics and techniques on how to identify and defeat potential attackers, as well as covering everything from dealing with overzealous fans, to hyper-aggressive paparazzi, this audiobook offers proven solutions from two experts that have covered the gambit from the Grammy Awards to the White House. 1.

With extensive, step-by-step photographs and instructions, this jiu-jitsu guide is an efficient tool for mastering this ancient martial art. The original Japanese martial art developed by the elite samurai class during Japan's feudal era, Jiu-jitsu is the forerunner of Judo and the precursor of today's ultimate fighting styles, such as mixed martial arts (MMA). For centuries, this method of unarmed self-defense proved so successful in combat that it was kept secret and taught only to a select few. Based on the author's study with instructors at the Tokyo police academy, this martial arts book presents all the traditional techniques of Jujitsu, also known as Jiu-jitsu. These methods teach you valuable restraining methods that force your opponent to submit without abuse by using pressure points. It shows you tips for search and seizure, and the almost extinct art of Hojojutsu—how to tie people up without using any knots. Japanese Jiu-jitsu: Secret Techniques of Self-Defense addresses and demonstrates the full range of Kaisho Goshin Budo Taiho Jitsu Ryu (Tokyo police self-defense). Learn specific techniques such as: 1. The use of hands 2. Throwing an opponent 3. Attacking vital points with strikes and kicks 4. The use of weapons (like the staff). This fascinating Jiujitsu book was designed as a training manual and serves as a remarkable illustrated guide to the secret art of Japanese samurai self-defense.
Misdirection is a step-by-step playbook for CEOs, CFOs, business owners, and HR executives that will help you identify and mitigate what can be the largest cause of negative operating leverage in your business. No matter your industry, company size, or location, this book will provide the tools to help you uncover what every other consultant has ignored. These expenses, hiding in every business, are disguised as liabilities but can become a powerful asset. You can look at this book as a self-defense, judo of sorts, to protect your company from unnecessarily overspending on what should be a manageable expense. Not only do we address cost, but we discuss employee morale, improving company culture, and how all these topics are tied together. Many times I see companies sacrifice the important for the urgent. This causes businesses to neglect what they believe they cannot change and instead focus on what they know they can. This blind spot on your P&L has been largely overlooked because you have been trained to overlook it. In fact, most business owners, C-suite executives, mayors, governors, and union heads have been trained to delegate this expense to non-P&L managers. This is because they’ve always thought there was no way to control this expense. In reality, they have been kept in the dark by the misaligned incentives in this multibillion-dollar industry. Warren Buffet once famously called GM “a health and benefits company with an auto company attached”. It has also been reported that Starbucks spends more on health insurance for its employees than it does on coffee beans. For most companies, health insurance is the second or third largest expense after payroll and raw materials. This puts you in the health-care business! I have just one question for you - how is your health-care business doing? If my asking that question made you feel uncomfortable, that’s okay - it’s just the Cartel's programming taking over.

Accurate Thinking for Coaches and Grapplers is a book that will allow you to align your personal behaviors on and off the mat with your thoughts about success. As competitors and coaches we understand that the currencies for success on the mat which are accepted in order to achieve a spot on the medal stand are sweat, blood, tears, sacrifice, and repetition. And with this in mind we also know that the one thing that is a huge hurdle to many people making this payment for success is their belief in what they are doing and their accurate assessment in what they are doing. Iron sharpens iron and athletes are sharpened by other athletes, competition, and coaches. And coaches are sharpened by other coaches, athletes, parents, and mentors. And parents are sharpened by the child-rearing process. And all individuals must have someone or something that makes them sharp and keeps them sharp. However, most people do not want to be openly, clearly, and freely critiqued with the honesty that it takes to be the best nor are most willing to look at their current situation accurately and honestly in terms of why success is not within their grasp or reach. In Accurate Thinking for Coaches and Grapplers, what you have is an opportunity to sharpen yourself. You have an opportunity to look inside of the mind of a 2004 Olympian, a four-time National Judo Champion, a NCAA Division 1 Wrestler, a veteran of the Abu Dhabi Submission Wrestling World Championships, a World Championship Coach for Team USA at the 2009 Grappling World Champions, a silver medalist at the Mundials (Brazilian Jiujitsu World Championships), a black belt in Brazilian Jiujitsu, and former strength and conditioning coach for BJJ Phenoms Keenan Cornelius and JT Torres. 1.

With almost 50 years of training people how to defend themselves, I've learned that the most important skill to learn is how to recognize a threat. Experiences gained from encounters with skilled and unskilled people over the last century have provided me with a keen awareness of what to look for.

You will learn from their personal mistakes, including situations where they have become the victim and how they put themselves there. I will teach you how to recognize what a threat is and and most importantly how to avoid them. You will learn the three aspects that combine to make a credible threat - means, opportunity, and intent. You will gain an understanding of what to look for and what could have been done to avoid that threat.
