Overview

From the shadows of the ancient Middle East comes the terror known as the hashishin, an order of professional assassins that evolved from the ancient and infamous Brotherhood of the Blood-Lickers. No group has had a more lethal influence throughout history than this fraternity of trained killers.

In this unique and astonishing book, Dr. Haha Lung not only traces the complete history of the hashishin, but explains the rules of Islamic warfare and the true concept of jihad. Also included in graphic detail are proven fighting and self-defense techniques, including:

  • Fist and Fire
  • Assassin Unarmed Combat
  • The Nine Blows of Vanna
  • Movement Patterns
  • And much more




The hashishin cultivated every method at their disposal to deal with their enemies, and Assassin! gives you every shred of information about their well-honed methods.

For academic study only

Dr. Haha Lung is the author of more than a dozen books on martial arts, including Mind Manipulation, Ninja Shadowhand, and Knights of Darkness.
