Protect Yourself (The Secrets Of Unarmed Defense) - Brooks Mendell

1944 ; 85 Pages

"In perfecting this system of self-defense in hand-to-hand combat, it has been the writer's goal to make available to anyone a simple set of defense measures designed to be used in any emergency where one's person is in danger of physical assault. Fully explained both in pictures and words in the pages of this book, these holds and throws enable you to protect yourself from the tricks of jujitsu, judo, mugging, and all forms of physical attack. It is a simple and direct science—a matter of knowing how your muscles and joints work, of understanding the vital relation between movement and balance, of knowing what your opponent's weak points are and what your own strong points are." - Foreword of Book
