'Self Defense for Seniors' Gives Seniors Strategies for Protection Against Attacks
Self Defense for Seniors, a newly released book by Ken Boire, focuses on providing senior citizen protection strategies to guard against ever growing violent acts against the most vulnerable population in the country. Written specifically for readers ranging from baby boomers to their elders, Self Defense for Seniors, available at http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=self+defense+for+seniors, presents easy to learn senior self defense strategies to help seniors protect themselves from assaults and escape from attackers.
Boire developed Self Defense for Seniors largely on the teachings of Portland area martial arts teacher Sifu David Bersaas' practical martial arts system Ken Chin Wing Tai, which incorporates elements from several ancient martial arts to provide a self defense system developed specifically for seniors. Realizing the reality that attacks upon seniors will most likely be initiated by assailants who are younger, quicker, and more agile with quicker reactions than their intended victims. Boire has taken the basics of Bersaas' Ken Chin Wing Tai techniques taught in his senior self defense classes plus elements from other martial arts such as judo and Krav Maga to provide easy to follow guidelines to arm seniors with a system developed to help them protect themselves in situations where they may find themselves at risk.
Biore, 75, acknowledges that his body reminds him daily that he and other senior citizens are now slower, less flexible, weaker, and more easily tired than they were in younger years. These realities mark seniors as vulnerable potential victims of younger, quicker, and stronger attackers. Not restricted by the tenants of any particular martial art, Self Defense for Seniors provides self defense strategies seniors can actually utilize. Most self defense techniques taught today are based on being able to execute athletic and acrobatic martial arts moves lightning fast. Self Defense for Seniors capitalizes on moves that seniors can perform effectively with efficiency of movement and without the necessity of over powering brawn. The senior self defense techniques are simple, quick, and effective, and require no special strength or flexibility.
