‘BACHELORETTE’ CONTESTANT, MARTIAL ARTS HALL OF FAMER SEAN RAMEY
TO PUBLISH ESSENTIAL NEW BOOK ON SELF-DEFENSE
A portion of proceeds from “Defend Yourself (No Experience Necessary)”
Will be donated to Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund
November 26, 2012 – San Francisco, CA – USA Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee and former “The Bachelorette” contestant Sean Ramey has announced the pending release of a new book, “Defend Yourself (No Experience Necessary),” which will debut in December.
According to Ramey, “Defend Yourself” contains seven basic steps to self-protection, providing readers with a fundamental understanding of what to do if they are ever caught in a life-threatening situation.
“I’m obviously not the first author to take on this subject,” Ramey said. “But my observation has been that most self-defense systems are too complicated and systematized for the average person, who has neither the means nor the desire to practice martial arts several times a week.”
Ramey owns and operates Kentucky Tae Kwon Do & Fitness Academy in Crestwood, KY, and is a sought-after public speaker. He said his goal in writing the book was to reach beyond the boundaries of his immediate community to empower readers with the skills he teaches daily.
“I wanted to talk to the college student, the stay-at-home-mom, and the business professional,” he said. “Everyone – regardless of age, gender, size or athletic ability — should be able to walk confidently in the world knowing they’re armed with these fundamental survival skills.”
Ramey, who lives in his native Kentucky with his wife and young daughter, also announced that 20 percent of all proceeds from the book will be donated to the Children of Fallen Soldiers Relief Fund, an organization that helps children whose parents lost their lives in wars overseas.
Ramey, who began studying Tae Kwon Do at the age of 9, has won more collegiate, state,
national and international Tae Kwon Do titles than anyone in Kentucky history. However, he is perhaps best known to America as a contestant on Season 4 of “The Bachelorette.” In one memorable scene, Ramey – a sixth-degree black belt – kicked a lemon off the head of eventual winner Jesse Csinscsak’s head while blindfolded.
“Defend Yourself (No Experience Necessary)” will be published in print ($12.99) and digital ($9.99) formats.
