The T.A.E. complete package contains photos, graphs and 13 videos that provide a definite answer to many 'unanswered' questions related to real-life self defense (questions such as "What if the attacker is stronger and faster then me? "What if he is trained?" etc.) One of the essential points people usually forget is this: Muscles can be trained for power, strength and endurance, but no one can trained the muscles in 'pressure point pain resistance'! It's as simple as that. These simple yet incredibly powerful methods are based on ancient Chinese arts that deal with pressure point manipulation and striking. This book deals with the basics of quickly detecting these points on the body of the attacker, and how to successfully apply pressure (pinching, rubbing, or pushing) for instant elimination of the attacker's intentions. Like using a stun gun T.A.E methods create very strong, painful sensations in the body of the aggressor, offering the essential self-defense elements of shock and surprise. T.A.E. methods are meant for real fight situations, not for friendly sparring or organized sports, because of the danger of inflicting extreme pain. (though NOT meant for use in combat sports, many expert fighters - especially MMA - successfully "slip in" here in there some of these methods between the rules.) All students are therefore requested to practice with extreme caution. Total beginners will benefit from this book because it will teach you the basics of self-defense that are very often overlooked. T.A.E. can be combined well with learning traditional self-defense methods. Martial arts and even experienced self-defense practitioners can benefit from taking a look at unexplained areas in modern martial arts. Each and every method explained in this book can be easily combined with strikes, kicks, controls or any other kinds of techniques that you already use.

Some people (just like Mr. Peng B. Goh and Mr. L.m. do in their comments) surely will say things like "ahh, this techniques do not work, this is just too simple" or "if the opponent do this it's better to do that etc. etc." and that may be their opinion (I just hope this book will not get attention of too many "keyboard warriors" , that fill the internet space with their 'sublime opinions' without having any grounds or very weak if any). In order to make nature of T.A.E. methods more clear, I would like to address these comments shortly:
- if you spend time (2-3 months is normally enough) to learn locations of the main pressure points and how to manipulate them, you WILL START to see how POWERFUL and effective T.A.E. is! - if you are covered with protective gear, boxing gloves etc. TAE will NOT work, off course as well as if you are in the some type of semi contact point fighting sport.- HOWEVER, in REAL FIGHTING situations, 90% duration of the attack one is in IDEAL position for T.A.E applications - close range, grabs, aggressive blows, ground fight etc etc.
What I am trying to say here is simply:'This T.A.E. is NOT a martial art style it's self. It is however a great set of weapons that are more than needed for anyone interested in being SAFE and READY for brutal conditions of the real life self defence.
From early childhood on, he worked hard just to get food and water - times were extremely hard in Zhengzhou, China. When William was 5 years old, his mother had to leave his three sisters and him in order to survive. Though it seems like a terrible beginning, small William lived through it and gained great life experience. The will of providence brought him to work as a servant in the house of the great master, Sifu Qian Bo-Wan. His Kung Fu school became his home and shelter. At the age of 8, boys passion for martial arts was recognized and he began learning personally from the great master Bo-Wan. He was trained in various methods: Wing Chun, Shao Lin Guan, Tai Chi Guan, Xing Xi Guam. He studied Chi Kung with my master and Buddhist monks. Just before his Sifu left this world, he told to 14 year old boy: "Xi (his name for author), you have to go and spread this knowledge. You can do much more then I ever could, you will see." Author felt humbled and obligated to carry out his wishes and he did so. After finishing his studies of traditional Chinese medicine with Dr. Le Cai, author moved to the Western world. He often stated that he never understood what his Sifu meant by saying 'you can do much more'. He did not say 'better', but 'more'. He explained that despite spending more then 30 years in teaching martial arts, Chi Kung, and related disciplines just recently he was able to understand why he used the term 'much more'. It was not because of anything in me. It is because of the Internet and modern technology that I really am able to fully fulfill his instructions. I am more than grateful to all my students and readers who help me, and continue reading and using my books. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and God bless you.
