Tom Burt, owner and instructor at AKKA Karate USA in Independence, Missouri, has been featured in a new book about real personal protection, and shares his strategies on defending yourself and loved ones.
This new book, titled Safeguard: Real Self-Defense for a Changing World, brings together experts from the fields of martial arts, personal protection, and self-defense study. Released August 31st, 2016, it features Burt and seven other authorities.
“In civil society we do not live in fear of being physically assaulted on a daily basis yet the danger is still there,” says Burt. “Self defense today encompasses much more than being able to defend your self against the attacker you haven’t met yet. Today the likely attackers are things like disease, apathy, self doubt and stress. I believe Self Defense needs an holistic approach to encompass our complete physical, mental, emotional and spiritual makeup as human beings.”
Safeguard: Real Self-Defense for a Changing World, was edited and compiled by Alex Changho, the publisher of the best-selling series BULLYPROOF: Unleash the Hero Inside Your Kid, and founder of BULLYPROOF America, a non-profit.
“The good news is, just like dealing with bullying, there are lots of programs out there educating the public about self-defense,” says Changho. “The bad news is, just like dealing with bullying, a lot of these programs just don’t work when applied in real situations. The experts we’ve brought together in Safeguard have real results working with people.”
Burt’s involvement in Safeguard brings an effective, working solution to Independence, Missouri. Along with the release of the book, Burt will hold free workshops, resources, and training for the community.
