Meditations on Violence: A Comparison of Martial Arts Training and Real World Violence

Author(s): Sgt. Rory Miller


Veteran correction officer Sergeant Rory Miller distills what he has learned from jail house brawls, tactical operations and ambushes to explore the differences between martial arts and the subject martial arts were designed to deal with: Violence. Miller explores the complexity of violence, critical thinking, and the mind of the predator. He offers martial arts training guidance and resources, discusses how to overcome personal fears, and how to deal with the aftermath of violent encounters.

About the author:
Miller, Rory |s In the course of a week almost everything in my biography is wrong. I'm no longer a tactical team leader, no longer a sergeant working for a corrections agency in the northwest. Just Rory Miller, citizen. Citizen on his way to Iraq.To teach what I have been doing for the last seventeen years in a new place, a new culture, with a new language barrier. I've been stuck for a couple of years wondering what the next steps were on my path. This looks like it. This will be very cool.
