5.0 out of 5 stars A little book that you make learn a lot ! 15 Feb 1999
By A Customer
I think that this book is very good and complete for the format, divided in four principal parts: one for self-defence tecniques with a lot of images that well-explain the concepts written; one for defensive moves; one for women (how to control an attacker) and the last for first-aid principles.

4.0 out of 5 stars Little book, but loaded with realistic advice 1 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Ok, I normally hate these little teeny "gem" book. But I've got to admit that this little reference on self defence is packed with good pointers, advice, and information on self protection. I teach self defense and I would say that reading through this and practicing the simple techniques a few times can greatly improve your odds in a vast number of situations.
3.0 out of 5 stars Handy Little Book for the girls 24 Feb 2013
By A R Holt - Published on Amazon.com

This book is a handy little book for the girls in our house hold. Shows some useful that they will hopefully be able to pick up if need.
The size is handy, however the details might be a little to brief.
Still worth it.
5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic book for anyone interested in a simple and effective method of self-defense. 23 Nov 2009
By Joseph J. Truncale - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, the book is not full size, but its 254 pages is filled with practical and effective tips, information and self-defense methods. This small text is loaded with clear color photographs describing the techniques. The 12 chapters cover a lot of material. It begins with explaining the problem. It moves to physical fitness tips, the law and self-defense, the basic principles of self-defense, common attacks, defensive moves, attacks on women, protecting your property, vehicle safety, travel tips, attacks by animals and insects and ends with dealing with medical emergencies.

In conclusion, this little book is truly a gem and anyone who is interested in practical self-defense should have this book in their personal library.

Rating: 5 Stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Pro-System Combatives vol. 1,2.)
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent information despite the tiny size 6 Feb 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
I was looking for information about use of the kobotan keyring and the only book soley on that subject is out of print. However, this little gem I stumbled across at a Chapters bookstore in B.C. has both words and pictures, along with lots of other good stuff.
