Overview


TARGET YOUR OPPONENT’S VITAL POINTS TO DISABLE ANYONE USING MINIMAL FORCE

•Over 300 step-by-step photos show each point and strike
•Written by a 9th - Dan Master and renowned expert on pressure point fighting

Martial arts lore tells of masters who possessed a mysterious ability to defeat an opponent with a single perfectly placed blow. The Secret Art of Pressure Point Fighting transforms the ancient legend into a modern reality—an anatomically based fighting and self-defense system that allows a smaller defender to defeat a larger attacker by striking at the key points on his body.

Straightforward and easy to understand, The Secret Art of Pressure Point Fighting provides a complete overview of the body’s vulnerable points and teaches how to stop an attacker as quickly as possible using a minimal amount of physical strength.

    Pressure Points Misses the Mark

    Barely informative, I found the book to be light on information and heavy in fluff. A subject that has such great depth is treated here with a light rake, never really getting into the system with the extent of information that could have been addressed. If the author feels that this is a subject that should be delivered face to face with a competent master, than don't write the book. If you want to show the system, give the subject its proper due. The history of the art was given decent respect, then it all began to fall away.
