Internal Fighting Arts 27 - Rory Miller
Ken Gullette talks with Rory Miller, the author of an influential book, "Meditations on Violence." As a martial artist and a former corrections officer, Miller has given traditional martial arts a slap of reality by outlining the ways that real-world violence is not something that martial arts classes prepare students for, and when it really happens, most people are overwhelmed and unprepared. You'll learn the difference between "social" violence, which often begins with the "Monkey Dance," and predatory violence, when the attacker operates like a hunter, using stealth and deception to get close enough to strike.
