I thank the Creative Power of the Universe, which I am, for the ability to choose and accept my newness of life. By and for my Divine and Earthly Right to Live in Joy and Freedom, I am reborn.

Corroboration of President Trump’s Understanding of Sun Tzu’s Art of War

I am thrilled to acknowledge that President Trump is obviously a student of mine. His understanding of not telling the enemy anything is absolutely correct and essential. Compare the words in his Afghanistan speech of not telling the enemy anything about his plans, with the following paragraphs from my version of Sun Tzu’s Art of War.

“You will be unsuccessful in your endeavors if you have forewarned the enemy, and by being unable to take over with previously failed methods, you may have inspired their anger. They will now fight with more conviction to stop you, and your troops will suffer losses regardless of your apparent strength. You must attack with ferocity and fanatical enthusiasm if you are to succeed. You will have to convince your troops that the enemy has been unreasonable and, therefore, must be stopped at any cost.

It does not matter that you may appear to be able to overwhelm the enemy or that your detractors will attempt to deride you publicly. You must still be prepared, and your generals must understand and believe your plans will succeed, and that they are sympathetic to your thinking, or you will suffer their ambivalence. If their hearts and minds are not with you, they will not be authoritative when they pass your orders to their captains.

In like manner, you must maintain a patriotic mentality on all levels of negotiations with the enemy. The enemy must be convinced that your untold plans are better for them than his are for himself or his people, and he must be made to see this. And, he will, if you have adequately approached his advisors. Your personal belief must be strong enough for his generals to understand and believe your intent. These truths must be in place if you are to avoid a physical war, which might come about later, but not if you have effectively weakened his troops, morally and spiritually.”

The Modern Age of Treason and the Washington Post Travesty

Whoever leaked President Trump’s private messages should be fired and prosecuted. Behavior of this caliber must be immediately stopped. That WaPo even reprinted them shows a tremendous lack of respect for the sovereignty of our nation and is a serious breach of security. Action should definitely be taken against them as well to ensure that this foolishness does not continue. No, I am not in favor of a dictatorship, but enough is enough. It is not in the best interests of the populace in general to have to know what POTUS says at every instance, without even knowing the real reason behind it.

What goes on in the Oval office IS NOT for general consumption, especially when there are forces at work bent toward destroying the current presidency. And, please, don’t give me the First amendment arguments! If the First amendment were really understood, then this idiocy would never rise to the surface. Respect for the nation is of utmost importance. More than any administrative policy and, in a democracy, an elected person is the one following the demands of the public that put him or her into office in the first place.

It would behoove those who are in a position of alleged responsibility to carefully read and study, with retention, The Sword in the Boardroom.

You may consider this to be an overt sales pitch, but it should be noted that the wisdom contained in the book far surpasses contemporary badinage and should be considered essential knowledge for governing for the benefit of all concerned.

Hanshi Kaufman’s Guide to Ultimate Self-defense


Chapter 8

Sitting Attacks

When sitting, alone or with someone, you are open to attack, depending upon where you are. Awareness of your surroundings is essential and, as a word of caution, you should not be wearing flashy jewelry or other personal goods of value. The society we are living in is quite different and certainly more dangerous than the society we lived in just a few short years ago. Don’t advertise your valuables. It creates a target for would-be attackers. Sitting in the park or somewhere quiet, alone or perhaps with a friend, or with your mind somewhere else can make you most vulnerable.

The following techniques for defenses against sitting attacks use basic front, rear, and side maneuvers that apply as well when you are riding on a subway. The only difference is that you are sitting rather than standing.

Practice these realistic exercises with or without a partner. If you are working solo, use a mirror when possible. Having come this far in your training, you should be conscious of the visualization process and the understanding needed to practice slowly until your moves are smooth.

By this time you know that self-defense on the physical level is based on self-defense on the mental level. If you look for trouble, you will get it, and you may not be able to handle it if you are arrogant, regardless of your training.


When sitting on a bench or in a subway car,

execute techniques by leaning to the side if possible

and using your hands for balance thereby

making your heel strikes more effective.

Sitting Attack #1

Attacker comes straight in an attempted grab

1 – Scream, and with your fingers rigid, thrust fingers into the throat or eyes with deep penetration. The attacker will have to move backwards.

2 – Drive your heel directly into the groin by lifting your knee up to your chest and pushing straight out with conviction into the attacker’s body. If necessary, do it a second time.

3 – Stand and move directly into the attacker with a forceful elbow across the head. Any variation will be effective.

4 – Run

If you are with a friend, that person must run off with you. This is not as obvious as it would seem. They may be panicked and frightened. Regardless of whether your friend is male or female, you must remember that you are not trying to become a hero. It is at this point that people get themselves killed. They try for “overkill,” and it is unnecessary. The attacker is possibly mobile and will more than likely attempt to run off once challenged. Do not follow. Get to safety.

Observe the variations and maintain your conviction in developing self-preservation. Practice all techniques slowly until they are mastered. train with rhythm, balance, quickness, and volition.


When someone approaches

in a menacing manner,

begin your counter-attack.

Four Variations of Sitting Attack #1

Attacker comes straight in an attempted grab


You will notice blank numbers in the sequences. This is intentional. As you practice, improvise your own choice of technique. As you study the actual methodology of Hanshi Kaufman’s Guide to Ultimate Self-Defense, this is explained in depth, in the book. For now, just do your own “creative.”
