I have since understood that Smith may have written Secret Fighting Arts of the World as something of a spoof, but I also found that at least one of the techniques outlined in this highly entertaining book actually works. As such, the book appears to contain both fact and fiction, leaving the reader to sort out which is which.
The MVD Special, for example, is an effective technique for dropping a belligerent to the ground suddenly, leaving him with no further desire to fight. I won't go into detail, only to say that I was surprised at its effectiveness in reducing an aggressive opponent helpless to continue.
I have no doubt that many of the other stories told so well by the author have at least some measure of basic truth, and having now purchased and read it again recently, I am still as entertained as I was when I first read it all those years ago.
The book is not up there with Smith's "Chinese Boxing: Masters and Methods" but it is still a handy addition to one's martial arts library, just for its uniqueness alone.
I rate it 4 stars.
its just depend on the trainee or student who wants it bad enough
Thank You !!!
