A Note From the Publisher
Foreword by Rory Miller, author, martial artist, former Sergeant corrections officer, "In this book, Wilder and Kane talk about the other dimension: how goals, what you are fighting for, change every element of how you fight."
Foreword by Marc MacYoung, "Dirty Ground won't teach you how to deal with the police. What it will do is help you understand use of force choices and pick a response that is both better for the task at hand and more defensible. That's a pretty important thing to know."
"Honest and effective instruction on handling confrontations that become a physical grapple. First class!"-Al Peasland, author, self-protection instructor, founder of Complete Self Protection Ltd.
"Fills a void in martial arts training. The critically important place between sport grappling and combat grappling."-Loren W. Christensen, 8th dan, author, police officer (ret.)
"Kane and Wilder provide a guide to understanding and adapting your fighting techniques appropriately to the situation at hand, be it sport, control, or combat."-Alain Burrese, J.D., former U. S. Army 2nd Infantry Division Scout Sniper School instructor, author
"You can never be too prepared. At the end of the day, what matters is that you go home safely. This book will allow the greatest opportunity to meet that challenge."-Mike McGinnis, jail administrative officer, member of ALERT team
"This book should be on the shelf of any martial artist who is concerned about responsible self-defense along with its moral and legal consequence!"-Linda Yiannakis, M.S. 5th dan (USA Judo/USJJF), member of National Board of Advisors, Institute of Traditional Martial Arts at UNM
