Welcome to Inside the Team Room: Stand and Fight, with Jim West.

Today, Jim tells us how he’s been hit seven times in the head and face with a beer bottle. He’s been hit so many times he actually has a plan of how to take a blow to the head with the bottle. He’ll tell you all about that in the video. If you choose to pick up a bottle to fight, Jim recommends using it in a very specific way…and it’s probably not what you think.

In the second half of the video, Jim demonstrates with fellow former Green Beret Jack Murphy how to maintain a good defensive stance. And it’s not the typical “A-frame” stance with your fists in front of your face like you might think it would be.

Check out the video and learn more about the art and science of self-defense.
