What did you love best about How to Defend Yourself in 3 Seconds (or Less!)?
I loved how it grabbed me right from the beginning. I am not an avid fighter. I am a wife, mother,fitness and nutrition expert, and creator of a online transformation program. I have knowledge and experience in the field of fitness. One thing I love about being in this industry I is the constant drive I have to learn more. It has been said that martial arts is the fastest growing sport in America, I believe it and I have seen it come into my own life with first my son, then my daughter and now my husband. We love it!
I love the concept of preparedness, not only in martial arts but in life! That is what fitness is all about, being prepared with our mind and our body absolutely goes with everything I believe in about life.
Psychology is everything and this concept also bleeds out of this book and into our daily lives.
I loved the voice of Rob Actis, I have listened to a few books that I could not stand the voice, thankfully this book was easy listening and easy to follow because of the enjoyable way in which Rob unveils these secrets and keeps true to the authors intent!
What did you like best about this story?
To believe in our-self. To let our body react how it should. That we all have the ability to succeed and be winners.
Which character – as performed by Rob Actis – was your favorite?
I loved listening to Rob! He is amazing and his voice was perfect. Not too over the top and not too dull. I felt this performance of his was top notch and I actually looked up other books that he has done because of it!
At first I did not think it was a big deal (the voice I listened too) but then I downloaded one I detested and now I always listen first! :) The voice does matter and I loved how Rob uses his voice to engage, enlighten and enthuse! You are amazing Rob!
What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?
Avoid the Threat
Easy, loved it.
Distraction and evasion, I also loved. It inspires one to use our brain in sticky situations!
Any additional comments?
Defend yourself is an empowering book on how to be prepared, especially when we need to defend ourselves. Many of us may think that nothing like this would ever happen to us, until it does. Many of us may think we know what we would do in this type of situation, and yet we know that unless we are prepared both mentally and physically we can fall victim.
My family loves jiu jitsu and our amazing instructor. I even did it once! I need to get back there and this book inspired me to do so! We have learned so much through this sport. I took my 8 year old out of dance and gym and into this art form to gain confidence, she is a different person. These tactics are real, they are amazing and they work.
As a mother I found this book hugely helpful for my brain to understand more about what is going on.
This book helped me feel more prepared on both accounts. I loved it and feel empowered!

I have worked in the Security industry for over thirty five years and taught many self defense classes. This book boils down self defense to it's most basic concepts: avoid the confrontation if at all possible, but if you do have to fight, fight to win and be aware of the consequences. I would recommend this book to anyone.
