“Soft Skills” are the things we should be doing prior to combat, to perhaps avoid a fight altogether.  In this episode we talk to Steve Tarani, well-known author, trainer and real-world operative, who explains why using soft skills is preferable to a gun fight, and why they work for everyone regardless of age, fitness or fighting skill level.
