Dont listen to the three star rating it goes into fighting anatomy and self defense i used it on my friend and it actually worked.
If you want to learn to defend yourself, you should learn this book. Very informative.
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.
