    mainly contained medium self defense tactics good for women

    I was looking for something that could help in every situation. This was more like hit in the groin techniques, rather than out of the ordinary situations. Didn't meet exactly what I was looking for. But not a bad book to help in some situations.

    Wow...

    Bad discription, horrible organization, repetitive. Not at all what you would expect with sas in the title . Has great quotes like "kick with your free hand". But i have to say it just might be worth the 99 cents.
