This manual of intense training is for martial arts as well as all combatative and contact sports. It is not restricted to people with an interest in these areas, but it is of value to anyone who wishes to develop a high level of all around fitness. While much of the book is devoted to the physical aspects of training, such as strength training, aerobic and anaerobic drills, equipment work, partner and single drills, human physiology and nutrition, there is also a substantial amount on the psychology of hard training, motivation and aggression skills. It is about developing the skills to win, whether it is in the competition arena or self-defence in the street. It teaches the mental edge and attitude that can be developed through the physical exertions of hard training and conditioning.
