The average person isn't looking to be in a situation where fists are going to fly, but many of us have found ourselves there anyway. At that moment, it's probably too late to do anything about it. But how do we change circumstances, so those situations don't happen? How Not to Get Hit is a book on personal safety for people who don't want to learn to fight, but do want to learn how to avoid those situations where a fight is likely to develop. Told in a lighthearted, irreverent style, How Not to Get Hit takes you on a journey through the funny side of violence, its roots in our evolutionary past and where it fits into modern society. Self-defense isn't a series of techniques or moves; it's an attitude, a strategy and a life skill. This martial arts philosophy book will give you an understanding of why people want to use violence and how to manage situations in order to create a better outcome.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Nathaniel Cooke has clearly thought a great deal about the subject and distilled its essence in a way that is wholly admirable." -Robert Twigger, author of Angry White Pyjamas
"From the very first this is a welcoming read. But don't take my word for it. Buy the book and enjoy it for yourself." -50/50 Self Defense blog
"Another of my favorite chapters consists of a group of interviews with those who deal with violent situations for a living - including a professional body guard, a psychiatric nurse, a police officer and a prison guard. It was a very entertaining read with very practical, real-world advice. Reading this section helped me see the real use in the skills discussed in the previous chapter and how they're put into use every day by a variety of highly trained professions. It was valuable to hear about actual situations in which these tactics were used to diffuse or end a potential altercation. This renewed my motivation to learn them and gave me confidence in their effectiveness." -KarateForums.com blog
"Nathaniel Cooke does a terrific job of making statistics mean something in, How Not To Get Hit. The second section of the book is the question and answer with people who deal with violence and its aftermath on a daily basis, and it is enlightening for those people that don't live in that world. The last third of the book brings principals and actions together, in a meaningful manner you can use. Lastly the graphics, illustrations, and pictures are, well, fun easy to understand, and engaging." -Kris Wilder, Co-author, The Little Black Book of Violence: What Every Young Man Needs to Know About Fighting
