The Fighting Edge
Using Your Martial Arts to Fight Better
The Fighting Edge

Once only available in hard-copy, this year 2000 title is now available for download at the JL store!
 
James LaFond has been training in various U.S., European, Korean, Chinese and Filipino martial arts for 25 years. He is also a veteran boxer and a laborer in one of America's toughest cities. He knows that the martial arts do not present all the realities of real combat and that 30 seconds on the sidewalk is worth three years in the dojo. In this book he explores the practical value, study and application of the martial arts in relation to real violence. What is it like to be in a real fight against deranged, drunk or drugged opponents? What is it like to be punched in the head? What do you do if your attacker is armed and you're not? What about the claims of various martial arts - are they valid? Which martial art is better for real fighting? Reading this book will help you maximize your training and become a better, smarter fighter.

WHERE'S MY EMAIL !?!?
Most of our emails go through. However, some folks' mail providers will block the content thinking it is spam (some of James' titles are buzz words for internet filters).

When I click on my product link, nothing happens, or a tab opens/disappears. Help!

Will book(s) be available for downloading/viewing indefinitely?
No. The store encourages you to download your eBooks once you receive them. This way, any future misfortunes with our website will not impact your purchase.
Yesterday I bought a book. Today it's been upgraded / rolled into an anthology. I feel cheated.
Let us know. We'll make it right. Because of the mass of Jim's writing and our ever-fledgling efforts to publish it, we are now finding it necessary to bundle older and like-themed store titles, to keep room and stay organized. Moving forward, expect more and more bundles. We appreciate your understanding.
