Comment: This book has already been well loved by someone else and that love shows. It MIGHT have highlighting, underlining, be missing a dust jacket, or SLIGHT water damage, but over-all itâ€TMs still a good book at a great price! (if it is supposed to contain a CD or access code, that may be missing)

Format: Paperback
I teach Kenpo Karate and have been active in Kenpo for over 26 yrs. The text by Joan Nelson is an excellent reference source for the lay public on self defense, but an invaluable tool for professional self defense instructors of most styles.

Format: Paperback
Although the Karate influence on this book is hard to miss it is still an excellent template to how self defense should be taught. If you are an instructor you can use this book as a template to helping you design your lesson plans. If you don't like a given technique then insert one that you do like following the author's method and you will be surprised at the outcome. The method of instruction and reinforcement that the author utilizes will work for any introductory self-defense course. I've read this book 100+ times and I am still learning from it.

Format: Paperback
This book is oriented to teachers of a women's self defense course. It contains class activities, drills, standards for sucess in each technique, descriptions for performing the techniques, and safety techniques. I find this book extremely helpful for any one teaching a self-defense course. I refer to this book frequently. I am a law enforcement self defense instructor and a 1st degree black belt in judo.

I am a 2nd degree black belt in karate and also teach women's self defense. I started looking for references to guide me in developing my SD class and came across this book. This book has been a great help for me in organizing my class. I highly recommend it.
