“100 DEADLY SKILLS: COMBAT EDITION” GIVES YOU MORE WAYS TO PROTECT YOUR LIFE
STEVEN PAUL BARLOW

Sometimes the best EDC items are the things we carry in our heads, not our pockets. Having skills and knowledge can go a long way in getting you through your day. That’s especially true when it comes to self-defense. And let’s face it: Self-defense plays a big part in the EDC game plan for many of us.

Published this year is a book to help you to prepare for worst-case scenarios when things get physical. “100 Deadly Sins – Combat Edition,” is subtitled, “A Navy SEAL’s guide to crushing your enemy, fighting for your life and embracing your inner badness.” That pretty much sums it up.

In this book, the authors, Clint Emerson and H. Keith Melton draw from the experience of 16 experts: special ops personnel, professional fighters, outlaw motorcycle gang members and world-class martial artists. Short biographies on each of these experts is included.

The book is published by Lioncrest Publishing. Its 309 pages contain numerous illustrations by Tom Mandrake to make it easier to understand the techniques being taught. To make it more entertaining, Mandrake uses historic bad guys in his illustrations. So, you get to see such notables as Saddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler and Charles Manson taking the brunt of our experts’ brute force.

BRAD ROWE IFBB Pro and Trainer to the Stars!

Success in bodybuilding is often assumed to correlate with contest wins and high finishes at the Mr. Olympia and Arnold Classic. Yet there are many other avenues available today, some far more lucrative than relying on prize money or even supplement contracts. One man who exemplifies the level of success possible beyond the stage is Brad Rowe. Though he was no slouch on stage, he gained far more visibility appearing in national commercials for companies like GoDaddy, Coca-Cola, Kia, Taco Bell and Dannon Oikos, some of which aired during Super Bowls. More recently, Brad’s prominence as an elite personal trainer got a major boost when Mike Tyson hired him to be his full-time strength and conditioning coach, training him for his 2020 comeback fight at age 54 with Roy Jones Jr. I spoke with fellow native New Englander Brad about why he stepped away from competing, how he became part of Mike Tyson’s training camp, and his major project that stands to make him one of the biggest players in the growing field of anti-aging and cutting-edge athletic performance.
