Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As a bouncer in a biker bar, Peyton Quinn has learned a thing or two about what goes down in a real fight. As a black belt, he has also learned that martial arts training is useful but no substitute for experience. In this unique guide Quinn reveals the psychology, strengths and weaknesses of a sucker puncher; the characteristics of a real fight and tips for dealing with aggressive people and ambushes. He then presents two basic moves that can be applied to most every attack, effective counter-strikes that he has used dozens of times to defeat larger opponents and secrets of grappling and escapes. Finally, he takes a practical look at the most popular martial arts in the U.S.

Synopsis:

As a bouncer in a biker bar and a participant in dozens of fights, Peyton Quinn knows the difference between fighting fact and fantasy. The result is a unique guide to self-defense that can save your ass in places where brawling is quick, dirty and very violent.

About the Author

Peyton Quinn is the dean of barroom brawling. He began his training in formal martial arts systems in 1964, eventually achieving rank in karate, judo and aikido. While he continues to respect and explore Asian martial arts systems, his real-world experience has shown him that for most people, training in martial arts alone is not enough for real fighting.
