Martial arts, combat, fighting, whatever you call it, goes hand-in-hand with courage, toughness, dedication, and focus. What sets the formidable fighter apart from other martial artists is that he or she approaches the training with the intent to develop an edge that allows him or her to dominate the opponent physically and psychologically. The goal of the formidable fighter is to retain the initiative by interfering with the opponent´s ability to counter an attack or defensive technique. The greater physical shape you are in, the less likely you are to sustain an injury, because your body is better prepared to handle the stress of combat. Superior strength and conditioning give you an edge that can act as an equalizer against a bigger opponent. Powerful punches and grips are the product of proper training and conditioning. Good training also makes allowances for failures and prepares you to win. On the field of battle, you command the fight by force, not finesse. The formidable fighter knows how to approach a scenario with the appropriate mindset that allows him or her to act rather than react and beat the opponent to the punch. Know how to play the cards you are dealt. Martial arts techniques are not complicated; it is the surrounding situations and how we think about them that complicate how we use them. Formidable Fighter: The Complete Series is the print version of the full series of 14 e-books, and includes also a bonus section; a quick reference to all concepts discussed in the text. The book is a variation of the previously published book (now out of print), Combat Fitness for the Elite Female Martial Artist, also by Martina Sprague, revised to be particularly suitable also for the male student.
To some left with nothing, winning becomes everything In a post-virus world, a daring sport is taking the US by storm. It´s frenetic, violent and involves teams attacking one another with swords and hammers. The aim: to obtain your opponent´s head and carry it through the goalposts. Impossible? Not if the players have Haden´s Syndrome. Unable to move, Haden´s sufferers use robot bodies, which they operate mentally. So in this sport anything goes, no one gets hurt - and crowds and competitors love it. Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field. But is it an accident? FBI agents Chris Shane and Leslie Vann are determined to find out. In this game, fortunes can be made - or lost. And both players and owners will do whatever it takes to win, on and off the field.

Head On brings Scalzi´s trademark snappy dialogue and technological speculation to the future world of sports.

No one gets hurt, but the brutality is real and the crowds love it. Until a star athlete drops dead on the playing field. Is it an accident or murder? FBI Agents and Haden-related crime investigators, Chris Shane and Leslie Vann, are called in to uncover the truth-and in doing so travel to the darker side of the fast-growing sport of Hilketa, where fortunes are made or lost, and where players and owners do whatever it takes to win, on and off the field.

1937. Dieter Merz is the Reich´s most celebrated fighter ace. Flying for the infamous Condor Legion over the battlefields of Spain´s civil war, Merz has been able to unleash the full potential of the Luftwaffe´s new fighter against his Republican opponents. In Dieter´s hands, the Messerschmitt Bf-109 is as graceful as a matador´s killing strike: la estocada. Dieter´s aerial prowess has brought him into close contact with the top echelons of the Nazi regime. He is not a political man ? all he wants to do is fly ? but for how long can he deny the toxic nature of Hitler´s rule? Scotsman and ex-marine Tam Moncrieff is recruited by a nameless intelligence agency in London to go to Germany and sound out Hitler´s resolve. Does he really intend to invade Czechoslovakia? Do his generals support him? Can the march to war be stopped? As duty collides with conscience, fate will bring both men together. These are desperate times calling for desperate measures. To avoid war a killing strike is needed: la estocada. The question is, who is the matador, who is the bull?
It´s wrecked the careers of promising young geniuses. It´s evaporated great fortunes and run companies into the ground. It´s made adversity unbearable and turned struggle into shame. Every great philosopher has warned against it, in our most lasting stories and countless works of art, in all culture and all ages. Its name? Ego, and it is the enemy - of ambition, of success and of resilience. In Ego is the Enemy, Ryan Holiday shows us how and why ego is such a powerful internal opponent to be guarded against at all stages of our careers and lives, and that we can only create our best work when we identify, acknowledge and disarm its dangers. Drawing on an array of inspiring characters and narratives from literature, philosophy and history, the book explores the nature and dangers of ego to illustrate how you can be humble in your aspirations, gracious in your success and resilient in your failures. The result is an inspiring and timely reminder that humility and confidence are our greatest friends when confronting the challenges of a culture that tends to fan the flames of ego, a book full of themes and life lessons that will resonate, uplift and inspire.
Once at the centre of the American conservative movement, bestselling author and radio host Charles Sykes is a fierce opponent of Donald Trump and the right-wing media that enabled his rise.Sykes presents an impassioned, regretful and deeply thoughtful account of how the American conservative movement came to lose its values. How did a movement that was defined by its belief in limited government, individual liberty, free markets, traditional values and civility find itself embracing bigotry, political intransigence, demagoguery and outright falsehood?How the Right Lost its Mind addresses key issues that face American conservatives under a Trump presidency. It asks why so many voters are apparently credulous and immune to factual information reported by responsible media. And why did conservatives decide to overlook, even embrace, so many of Trump?s outrages, gaffes, conspiracy theories, falsehoods and smears? Can conservatives govern, or are they content merely to rage?And central to Sykes?s discourse is the question of how can the right recover its traditional values and persuade a new generation of their worth.
In traditional budo, the Mini Stick as an effective means of self-defense is nothing new. There are comparable weapons in the different martial arts of a very wide range of countries, which have developed over the centuries. In Japan there is the kubotan; on the Philippines the closed balisong can be used in the same way as the Mini Stick, and today we use it as a key fob, but it is interchangeable with other short objects in practically all techniques. The author demonstrates the different ways in which the Mini Stick can be used. With 255 illustrations, the book takes the reader through maneuvers for getting free and possibilities of controlling your opponent to final techniques, with the aim of deciding dangerous situations clearly in favor of the defender. Two diagrams illustrating the pressure points show almost 50 possible attack targets on the human body with their labels.

A journey into the past. To find out how it all began. And an opponent at once deadlier and more human than she could ever have imagined.
