Some years ago, Jeff Cooper wrote an excellent booklet entitled,Principles of Personal Defense. This brief work outlined seven principles that, according to Jeff, lay the groundwork for all successful self-defense efforts. It should be required reading for anyone interested in personal security.
This revised edition of Jeff Cooper’s classic on personal defense is the best study of the guiding principles of survival in the face of unprovoked violence by human assailants. Cooper discusses the vital elements of defensive mental conditioning, including alertness, decisiveness, aggressiveness, speed, coolness, ruthlessness and surprise.
