Street self-defense, crime avoidance and personal safety
I grew up in the streets of Los Angeles in 'situational poverty.' I have dealt with criminals and violent people all my life -- both personally and professionally. I have written 15 books and 6 videos on surviving street violence. I was originally published under the name Marc Animal MacYoung. (Animal was my street name). I've taught police and military both internationally and within the US. I've lectured at universities, academies and done countless TV, radio, newspaper and magazine interviews. I'm a professional speaker on crime avoidance and personal safety. And I am an expert witness recognized by the US court system. My bio is at www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/marcmacyoung.html My abridged CV (Curriculum Vitae) is at http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/seminarEW.htm
Too numerous to list here. My CV (for my expert witness work in court) is at http://www.nononsenseselfdefense.com/seminarEW.htm
Read "In the Name of Self-Defense" the streets don't give a Ph.D in scuffle.
I like helping people not get hurt by crime and violence.
Never to have to use it again.
Most crime and violence is easily avoidable...IF 1)you know what to look for AND 2)if you can keep your emotions from running away from you. When you have those two things going for you, you can see trouble developing a mile away and easily prevent it from happening.
When I say about violence, "It's better to avoid going there," it's because I've spit blood and buried friends. I am an ex-LA street thug who knows, first-hand, the horrors and complexities of violence. I don't promote fighting or encourage macho fantasies about it. There is no 'safe way' to engage in violence or 'guaranteed' fighting system. Anyone who says differently is selling something.
