Target Focus Training: The best self-defense system I've ever discovered
Target Focus Training is by far the best self-defense system I have ever discovered. It will teach you the skills necessary to survive a violent encounter in which you are in danger of losing your life or of being severely injured.
Hopefully you will never be the victim of random violence. Nobody ever plans to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. And yet it happens to innocent people every day! Just read the newspaper! If you want some control so you don’t end up being a helpless victim, then please read on.
Why am I posting this article on my website, which is about health, or the improvement of life? Because the preservation of life is also important.
For many years I was a student of martial arts. My training was an invaluable part of my personal development. However, even after earning my black belt in Kenpo karate, I did not feel confident that I could adequately defend myself if suddenly attacked by a psychopathic criminal. It seemed to me that most of the techniques I had learned in my practice of karate were effective mostly in the controlled environment of the dojo, or martial arts studio. I had also heard that many highly trained-martial artists have not survived attacks on the street. In spite of the fact that the criminals who attacked them lacked any kind of martial arts training, or were not even in good physical condition. I knew I needed another kind of training.
Target Focus Training was developed by Tim Larkin. Mr. Larkin had at one time been a Navy Seal candidate who ruptured an eardrum during a diving accident and could no longer pursue his career. Because of his extensive experience in combat sports, Mr. Larkin was commissioned by the Navy to create a more effective hand-to-hand combat system for the Navy seals, one of our country’s most elite fighting forces. This was Mr. Larkin’s full-time occupation. The result was the system that became Target Focus Training, which is now available to the general public.
I learned of Target Focus Training by word-of-mouth. I explored the website and was impressed both by the concepts and by the testimonials of people of high reputation in the fitness and martial arts community. I took the course. It was excellent! I am a believer, and I want to share this information with you.
I will let the website speak for itself. My exploration of Target Focus Training began when I read the book, How to Survive the most critical 5 Seconds of Your Life. “OK,” I thought, “This is good stuff!”
I then ordered and watched the 17 DVD “Seminar Series,” which they say is the next best thing to being there live. My next step was to take the live training, which I did in January of this year. A live training class is taught in San Diego once per month, and several others are taught in other cities (please see the schedule on the website.) I intend to order and watch other DVDs as time permits.
I believe you will find Target Focus Training to be as valuable as I did. By the way, it is as valuable to women as men, perhaps even more so. Many women have taken the class. I hope I can go through life never being in a situation where I have to use the training, but If I am not so lucky, I feel I now have tools that will help me survive.
