Self-defense and close-combat expert Timothy Larkin founded Target Focus Training, a self-defense method that employs debilitating violence. Focusing on self defense for survival situations, Timothy Larkin introduces simple movements that can be implemented by any person to stop an attacker effectively and quickly. He has trained elite military groups, including the United States Border Patrol, United States Navy SEALs, and Army Special Forces. For more than 20 years, Timothy Larkin has taught law enforcement units his method of defense and attack for life-or-death situations. He has also instructed corporate and civilian clientele all over the world on the principles of Target Focus Training and how the ideas can be used in a non-life-threatening environment like business dealings. Offering individuals live, in-person sessions and home DVD training options, Timothy Larkin teaches people how to prevent danger and harm using minimal action that causes extreme pain or injury. Featured in Black Belt magazine in February 2012, Timothy Larkin has been highlighted in numerous fitness and martial arts publications. He has been the focus of articles in Muscle and Fitness, Fighting Fit, Vegas Voyeur, Blitz Magazine, and the Forbes Investment Guide. Reputed for his statement, “Violence is rarely the answer, but when it is, it’s the only answer,” Timothy Larkin reveals the core philosophy behind Target Focus Training. According to Timothy Larkin, an injury that involves breaking a limb or damaging a sensory system during the period of involvement is needed to stop an attacker. He employs brutal strikes to vulnerable parts of the body to debilitate an attacker and stop a hostile situation instead of merely diffusing it. He explains the approach is used for an unavoidable violent confrontation and fills a “gap” left by combat sports and other martial arts. To learn more, visit www.targetfocustraining.com.
