I have a book titled The Gentle Art of Verbal Self Defense and it was mentioned to me that Verbal Judo is similar. I had completely forgotten about it until we recently watched a short presentation on it at work and then was asked if I would like to give a presentation myself.

I found it an interesting tool to use and figure I would share it here. Thoughts/feedback is always welcome. Here is a video of the founder of Verbal Judo giving his presentation on its concepts.


Not sure if the video I posted is showing since I am using my phone but here is the link.

If that was you as the gentleman who presented the mechanics of verbal self defense, I would say you've done a very good job.

There's really not much else I could input except that I do like the video.

That was not me. The video is done by the founder of Verbal Judo. I suppose the way I worded my post it could be misconstrued that I am claiming it is my video.

Teehee. "Bollocks". English English is funny. smile

Seriously though, it is wise to know some "pre-combat" techniques to avoid the necessity of using force.

Avoiding dangerous areas, running away, or diffusing the situation through this "verbal judo".

THEN kick 'em in the balls. wink

Wow, I had no intention of watching an hour and half lecture about negotiation skills but that fella had me instantly. He was like a big bucket of Lawrence Tierney with a dash of William Forsythe. I could listen to him aaalllllll day.

Excellent speaker, engaging delivery, quite a few Satanic principles, phrases I will remember for eternity ("professional language", "tactical empathy", "mean nasty street lizard", etc), and those awesome sound effects. WuSHAW! grin

I didn't get the sense that there was anything particularly gentle about this method. It is very powerful, takes tremendous inner strength and discipline. Really remarkable man. RIP Doc Rhino.

Glad you enjoyed it. I just got the book in the mail a few days ago and am enjoying it immensely. Some concepts I found that I already applied as per Lesser Magic but some I am working on.

I work in an environment where drug dealers and crackheads are prominent so this could be life saving in the long run. I hope others here take away as much as I did.
