Stick Fighting: Techniques of Self-Defense

Stick Fighting: Techniques of Self-Defense Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Step-by-step instructions and over 300 photographs allow the trainee to follow and learn the techniques with ease.

The ideal weapon for self-defense is a stick. To find a comprehensive system of techniques using the stick, we must turn to the East, for systems known to the West have fallen into disuse. In this book, the techniques of Kukishin Ryu-an ancient Japanese method-have been updated and adapted for use today. A thorough grounding in the fundamentals dealt with here will enable you to disarm and control any assailant.
