Reviews - What do customers think about Defensive Tactics: For Proffessionals And Civilians?

Great information!  May 17, 2007
This book is full of great information for sure. Wagner knows his material and conveys it very well to the reader. As another reviewer mentioned however the amount of typos in this book is astounding and gets a bit annoying page after page.
Uneven book comprised of magazine articles  May 22, 2006
This book is comprised on magazine articles written by Jim Wagner and published in Budo International magazine. Wagner is a world-famous instructor of reality-based self defence. In fact, he coined the term "reality-based".

As already stated, the book is comprised on articles published previously in a magazine. Each of the articles comprises one chapter in the book, and the topics vary a great deal from ground fighting to fencing with a rifle, and everything in between. Because the topics vary this much, I found some of them very valuable, while others were of no interest to me. Sadly, the articles have not been edited at all, to a point of printing the preview of the article that was written by the editor of the magazine as a part of the chapter, or Wagner stating that he will return to the subject in future issues of the magazine. There is lots of repetition also, that could have been edited off when transferring the text from a series of magazine articles to a book format.

The production values of the book are high, as the book is printed on a high-quality paper with lots of photographs, and the book is full colour through. Sadly, there are lots of typos and although there are lots of pictures and picture serials presenting self defence techniques, some of them are used as page-fillers and have nothing to do with the issue being handled. Also, I feel that the chapters could have been arranged in a different order for a more consistent outcome.

Although Wagner does not present many techniques in the book and concentrates more on principles, you can get lots of ideas for organizing your own training. Although, had the book been edited fully when transferred to book format, the outcome would have been much better.
Good book  May 6, 2006
this is good book, made from articles from Budo International mag. Manny color pictures in good postures but less techniques that I would like to be in there. Jim Wagner is the real deal, he was everything(soldier,corrections,LEO, federal agent) so anybody interested in self protection or DT for LEO and military could and will find something usefull in this book.
