Question: When will the defense eBook be released?
Actually it has turned into more than an eBook (it's actually a couple eBooks with drills for reference and an audio recording) but we plan to release the new man-to-man defensive system on Thursday November 29th (barring any unforeseen technical issues).
We're almost there and we're working hard to proof everything and get many of your requests added.
