I admit to being a fan of Loren Christensen's books and videos. Unlike one of the critical reviewers, I maintain that one of the plus factors in any so called street tactics books, is that the author has actual street experience as a police officer. I also enjoyed this book immensely because there were so many large clear photographs showing the techniques. As a life time student of the martial arts and more than forty years teaching police defensive tactics, I found most of the techniques in this great volume simple to learn and apply on resisting subjects. The fact is, I have used many of these techniques myself on actual combative subjects when I was a full time police officer. This detailed volume covers finger, wrist, elbow, shoulder, neck, and other control type techniques.
In conclusion, if you are seeking a practical and effective text on locks and control holds, this is a must have book for you.
