100 Deadly Skills
“The first volume in the 100 Deadly Skills series delivered clandestine hacks designed to allow readers to escape and evade threats at home and abroad. The second book, my Survival Edition, provided a blueprint to surviving chaos, misadventures, and fatal disasters. Now, with the Combat Edition, I’ve created the most comprehensive on-the-ground combatives manual ever assembled—traveling the country to learn the most effective combat techniques from some of the deadliest characters on Earth. The goal remains the same: allowing good people to defeat evil, fight for their lives, and survive another day.”
Created by a retired Navy SEAL, this illustrated combat manual presents one hundred skills harvested from the world of special operations, outlaw bikers, lifelong martial artists, and professional fighters. Drawing on the unique skill sets of a carefully selected cadre of experts, each technique is carefully broken down to its component parts in order to radically improve your chances of coming out on top—whether you’re faced by an active shooter or coming toe to toe with a belligerent prick. Throughout, embedded step-by-step video content enables you to visualize the skills and practice them in real-time.
These hundred deadly skills, which all rely on no-nonsense combative techniques, include:
- Weaponizing your non-violent posture
- Delivering damaging body strikes
- Accurately throwing a knife
- Quick drawing and shooting a handgun
- Tactically deceiving your enemy
- Surviving a multi-threat ambush
- Understanding non-lethal and lethal options
