    Grity Down And Dirty

    This book includes some great conditoning concepts and real life tactics. Street fighting is fast and furious, no corners, no rules and no ref.'s. Who ever goes down first often wins. It is to me much like reading a history book however, or the tactics or war from another century. I mean, no one street fights any more, it is an era of weapons and guns. A good book to read if you get in a jam though, and are lucky enough to not have a weapon be in the mix. Also, a good book to read if you are looking to be in great condition like a fighter.

    A Complete Boxing/Streetfighting Book

    Ned Beaumont has written, quite possibly, the most thorough treatise covering boxing as a martial art. This book is not only a useful tool for the 'streetfighter', but it also provides a practical reference for the experienced boxer as well. It is easy to read and covers all facets of its subject. Lessons from the champs add practical advice from some of boxings greatest fighters to clearly illustrate the skills taught in 'Championship Streetfighting'. You would have to look long and hard to find a more complete manual covering the subject of 'Boxing as a Martial Art'.

    Outstanding Book on Real Combat

    Ned Beaumont has done us all a service by presenting the one hand-to-hand combat system that will really work for the American male -- boxing -- and for teaching his readers what adjustments they will have to make in this system to see it work on the street. The book also presents excellent information on physical conditioning: it'd be worth the price even as an exercise book. The final bonus is that Ned Beaumont is a gifted, witty, and intelligent writer of English prose.

    Only for novices

    This book is good only if you have no experience whatsoever with boxing. In that case, you may pick up a few concepts. I was expecting a lot more information but it was lacking.
