How did one of the top counterterrorist teams in the world, German GSG9, hear about my realistic methods of self-defense teaching, and hired me to teach them? Not just once, but twice at their Headquarters in Sank Augustine, Germany. How did the Israeli Defense Force and Israeli Police Academy hear about my life-saving courses and want me to teach it to their nation’s top instructors at Bahad 8 and Netanya, Israel? It’s the same way that the Amsterdam Police Department instructor cadre, Brazilian GATE, Argentinean GOE, the DEA, Helsinki Police Department instructor cadre, and many more elite agencies and military units around the world did. Their self-defense trainers read the articles I wrote over the years for Black Belt magazine, Budo magazine, S.W.A.T. magazine, and other publications. Then, every time I taught in a different location, at home or abroad, my reputation spread from there by word of mouth, which got me into other agencies, units, and countless martial arts schools. However, as much as I appreciate these publications for spreading the word about the Jim Wagner Reality-Based Personal Protection system, I never did have complete control over the articles, or my books, that were published. Some publications edited my information so much that I hardly recognized my own material that was on the newsstand shelves; some editors are just like that. Other publications put in their own staged photos instead of my real world ones that I took (I certainly had a lot of “glamour photos” taken of me and printed). And, none of the publications ever put in enough photos to convey all of the information that I needed to get out to the public.
Well, a month ago the thought hit me, “Why am I relying on publishers to get my teaching out to you? After all, I published my own autobiography. I just published my student’s autobiography LOOKA HERE! Why don’t I start publishing my own reality-based self-defense books? I have original information to share with the marital arts and professional communities that nobody else is putting out there. And, I have a lot of it!”
So, not only did I decide it was time to share all of my knowledge, my wisdom, but it was time to start writing again. The result of a month of writing is my new book, now on sale on Amazon, titled WARRIOR WISDOM: In One Month. And, I must say, I am very pleased with the result.
The way the book was written for you is to read one topic each day. There are 31 topics, so by the end of one month of daily readings you will have gained “warrior wisdom;” techniques, tactics, warnings, training methods, and martial information based upon my four decades as a martial artist of a dozen systems, jailer, street cop, SWAT officer, bodyguard, counterterrorist for the U.S. government, Military Police soldier, Special Response Team (SRT) team leader, private security, and a self-defense instructor since 1980. I’ve seen and done things that very few martial artist have ever done, and I’m not only sharing it with you in this new book, but book after book will follow this one.
And, speaking of instructors, if you are a law enforcement Defensive Tactics instructor, a military Combatives instructor, or a civilian self-defense instructor of any fighting system, this book, and those that will follow, are for you also. The information contained in WARRIOR WISDOM will not be found in any other resource, at least not in one place like this one, and it’s information you’ll want to pass down to your students so they will appreciate your wisdom. Like my former martial arts articles I go into everything that earned me the nickname, “the father of the reality-based movement,” like surviving an active shooter, terrorism, a gang swarm, a drive-by shooting, a prison style shank attack, a criminal chemical attack, and the list goes on. And, yes, even how to survive the proverbial “bar fight” with kicking, punching, and head butts.
So, the chains have been taken off, and now you have access to my new information, but better, and more detailed, information than what originally made me famous starting back in 1998 with my first article in Black Belt magazine. With WARRIOR WISDOM you’ll live up to my system’s motto BE A HARD TARGET
PS: If you do order the book from Amazon, please don’t forget to do a book review after you are done reading it. I’d really like to know your opinion. And, speaking of books, if you are a Jim Wagner Reality-Based Personal Protection student or certified instructor, then you may want to be in a book that I will be releasing next year. See the post before this one. BE A HARD TARGET
