Bro-Jitsu: The Martial Art of Sibling Smackdown Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Bro-jitsu is a highly stylized form of physical and mental combat that has been practiced and honed to perfection over countless millennia by billions of human beings who all have one crucial thing in common: annoying siblings. The book breaks down Bro-jitsu into three strategies: offensive moves, defensive moves, and psychological manipulation. Each section delivers step — by — step instructions on performing crucial techniques, from the classic Wet Willy to the inventive Full-Body Defensive Fish Wiggle. No sibling should be without it!

Review:

"This small-format, tongue-in-cheek guide provides 126 martial art techniques for siblings to gain the upper-hand and drive their brothers and sisters crazy. While the Bro-Jitsu vow prohibits face hits or permanent scarring, basic offensive moves from punching ('This old-fashioned favorite never goes out of style') to advanced maneuvers like 'Stealth Butt Kick' and 'Hanging Spit Fake' are readily encouraged and illustrated. Goading methods include parroting a sibling in an obnoxious voice, and 'Stop Hitting Yourself' claims #1 in the list of 'Top Ten Bro-Jitsu Moves.' Wilson's matter-of-fact tone should have kids in stitches — the content less so, one hopes — and should resonate with anyone who's ever hawked a loogie at an unsuspecting brother or sister. Ages 12 — up." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Kung Fu. Tae Kwon Do. Karate. All ancient martial arts that have been around for thousands of years. But there's only one martial art that's existed since the dawn of man, only one that's been trained by billions of brothers and sisters the world over. We're talking about Bro-Jitsu.

From the author of How to Survive a Robot Uprising comes a hilarious, highly informative and completely original guide to tormenting your brothers or sisters. Bro-Jitsu is a tongue-in-cheek encyclopedia of sibling smackdown, from how to most effectively include pro-wrestling moves in a standard bout to executing a full-body defensive fish wiggle, which will get you out of just about any choke hold or tackle. Diagrams and illustrations of the moves will help you in your quest toward Bro-Master status. Let the sibling torment begin
