Waking the Tiger
Foreword (4 pages)
The Foreword first describes the purpose of
the book: developing instinctual fighting ability (the Tiger within), and
providing simple, common-sense techniques to ensure safety on the street,
at home, at work, in the car, on trips, and at school.
Next, the Foreword cautions against
compassion for "goblins," those who prey upon us, warns that we must
expect to be attacked eventually, with on one to depend on but ourselves.
The Foreword concludes: "If you learn these
principles, you will repel violence instead of attract violence. If
violence must be committed, let it be in your defense, and not to your
Chapter 1...The Right To
Defend (6 pages)
Chapter 1 begins with the assertion: "No
one ever has the right to hurt you. The mere thought of someone doing so
should make your blood boil, and anyone who attempts to hurt you does so
at his own peril."
"Your chances of being attacked are
directly related to your level of willingness to fight back."
The second part of chapter 1 defines
exactly what one can do to defend oneself--under the law.
Chapter 1 concludes with the thought: Do
everything you can to avoid attack, but if it has to happen--strike hard,
strike fast and end it on your terms."
Chapter 2...Awareness (11
pages, 1 illustration)
The chapter opens with the thought:
Awareness determines whether one will be attacked or not.
Victim’s state: "I couldn't believe it was
really happening, it was unreal, I was frozen, I couldn't think."
Readers of chapter 2, Awareness, will be
able to say instead: "It might happen to me. It might happen today. I know
what to do. And I'm going to do it!"
Copy the Tiger, be aware. The rest of
Chapter 2 tells simply, directly, how always to be aware: practice the
White--unaware. 90% of people are in white
most of their lives. White attracts assailants.
Yellow--general alertness. Potential
attackers are repelled by alertness.
Orange--specific alert. In orange you make
your battle plan. "If he steps one more step toward me, I'll drive my
finger into his eye."
Red--is the fight mode. You are a machine,
your decision and action are automatic, your assailant is surprised, then
The "Color Code" saves lives, makes the
assailant the victim.
Chapter 3...The Tiger
"Everyone is born with a tiger within,"
begins Chapter 3. But society buries our Tiger deep within us.
When we convert fear to rage, Chapter 3
continues, with the accompanying adrenaline surge, our Tiger surfaces
powerfully to save us.
Always, Chapter 3 concludes, we must fight
back, surprising the predator, converting our fear to rage, making our
entire essence as frightening to the assailant as a wild, ferocious Tiger.
Chapter 4...The "Stop Button"
(18 pages, 33 photos)
"Don't fight fair, fight to win."
How well we defend ourselves is 90% mental,
10% physical, Chapter 4 stresses in the first section.
The rest of the chapter uses 33
illustrations and crisp, simple instructions to teach powerfully effective
techniques to end the fight within one second.
Chapter 5...Home Defense (18 pages, 14 photos)
"Your home is an extension of yourself--an
attack on it should infuriate you as much as a direct attack on yourself."
Prevention is the key, Chapter 5 continues.
The remainder of the chapter describes 12 specific measures to protect the
Chapter 6...Group Attack
After you learn to defeat a single
attacker, you can defeat many attackers by using the same technique. "As
long as you are fast and brutal in you technique, and escape a soon as you
are able, you will survive."
Chapter 6 continues with specific
techniques to survive a mass attack, and explains how to quickly stop an
The chapter concludes with this advice:
"remember your advantages and be happy that your assailants are
unconfident, distracted fools as you attack their attack.
Chapter 7...Travel Safe
(28 pages, 18 photos)
Chapter 7 tells clearly, simply, with
illustrations, how to remain safe while walking,driving (road-rage, car
jackings), staying at hotels or motels, in a restaurant, in an elevator;
and how to be a secure tourist.
Chapter 8...Growing Up Prepared
(20 pages, 9 photos)
"300,000 children in the United States are
abducted each year, 46,000 never to be found again."
To keep your child totally safe, Chapter 8
continues, you must assume your child will be attacked, and that it will
happen sooner or later.
Actual kidnappings are described in the
chapter--those which ended in tragedy, and those rare ones where the child
knew what to do, survived.
The chapter continues with 14 specific
rules and techniques every parent must teach their child to ensure the
Chapter 8 ends: "If enough children start
fighting back against the evils of kidnap and child molestation, the whole
business of these perverts hurting children will stop."
Chapter 9...Putting An End To Bullies
Chapter 9 begins by describing the harm
done to children by bullies. And then it tells the parent how to detect
signs that the child is being bullied.
The middle part of Chapter 9 warns that,
unchecked, bullying always escalates, especially when child and/or parent
is in denial.
The chapter concludes with the mandate that
a child must be taught never to let a bully get away with anything. The
child must fight back, over-react to the threat of the bully, and the
parent must always support the child's actions 100%.
Afterword (2 pages)
Crime is increasing.
Waking The Tiger Within teaches our
children and us how to be safe.
Never submit, comply or follow the commands
of an attacker. Always we must fight.
We must plant firmly in our mind that, yes,
if we are attacked, regardless of the odds, we will fight back. When we do
this, we are strong, at peace. We have awakened the Tiger within.
