Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's a dangerous world out there, and knowing how to protect yourself against would-be assailants is a skill that should be in every girl's bag of tricks. Get your kicks with a book that teaches self-defense — and self-esteem.

As movies like Kill Bill, Tomb Raider, and Charlie's Angels have demonstrated, the martial arts aren t just for boys anymore. Kung Fu for Girls is a funky, handbag-sized book of self-defense techniques that will get you out of any tight spot.

With step-by-step instructions and dynamic illustrations, martial arts trainer Simon Harrison shows how every part of your body — hands, hips, knees, elbows, even your butt — can be used to fend off potential attackers. From palm strikes to slap blocks to stiletto stomps, it's full of useful techniques for college students, city dwellers, and butt-kicking girls of all ages.

Synopsis:

Kung Fu for Girls is your guide to the art of self-defience with control, power, and, of course, style. You already have all of the tools─from your arms, head, butt, and legs to your cell phone, keys, high heels, and handbag─now learn how to use them!

 

With this simple, stylish course in essential kung fu moves, you’ll gain the knowledge and confidence you need to stand up to any situation and keep you and your friends out of harm’s way. Stash the book in your handbag─don’t go out on the town without it!
