Very few of them are attributable to a single person or survive in their original form, but rather end up belonging to the whole community. I’ve made an effort to attribute specific drills to the people I thought responsible, but even those drills which I concocted myself are in fact compilations of ideas from others and may go back years (if not decades). Because of this “melting pot” of influences and ideas, I think it appropriate to thank those who not only invented drills but who have inspired in some way what you see in this book. In no particular order, I’d like to recognize and thank Georges Rahbani, Massad Ayoob, Rob Pincus, Claude Werner, Paul Carlson, Greg Ellifritz, Marty Hayes, Paul Gomez, Clyde Caceres, and Mike Seeklander for their inspiration over the years. Even if they didn't actually develop something in these pages, they certainly exposed me to ideas and, in some way, at some time, influenced how I look at defensive training. They (and others I’ve no doubt forgotten to add) have 9 had some input into this book — whether they realize it or not. 10
