Hello all.

I found this site just a few days ago and it really spoke to me. I have just began my journey into this lifestyle change. After a fight with cancer and some major back surgery I needed to center myself. After only one mouth on the paleo existence I feel amazing.

In response to your question:

The most effective way to stop an attack, is to simply not be there. Either in the situation or at the end of the blow.

However if you must fight, fight to win. After a short stint with some amazing sensei’s in Jeet Kune Do, Kyokushin Kai, and Jujitsu, I think Bruce Lee’s justification of aggression speaks well:

If an enemy strikes your flesh, pound his.
If an enemy pounds your flesh, break his bone.
If an enemy breaks your bone, take his life.

If you need some quick and basic Techniques that will help you get out quick, here are some vids.

Ive been to every continent except Antartica, been to around 70 countries and there is no place I would rather live.

I'm keen to visit this wilderness, and apparently they've just finished building an air-strip... no more long boat trips to get there.
