Although Peter Consterdine practises a different style of martail arts/close combat self defense, his outstanding training manual FIT TO FIGHT covers exactly THE topics which many martial artists have been looking for, for many, many years. How do I train for REAL combat and not for sports tournaments where the fight ends when the referee yells 'stop'! The book covers basic training pricnciples, how to do aerobic exercises and an-aerobic exercises (weights) the correct way. It furthermore inspires the reader to combine those exercises in such a way, that one gets accustomed to the emotional stress (adrenaline rush) which will occur shortly before combat, and also how to 'function' properly under those conditions. The only thing It was lacking was some kind of real schedule to use as a beginners guide. Read the book along with DEAD OR ALIVE by Geoff Thompson, those two make a true winning team!
