I've trained several times in the past with Sensei Vince Morris and he's a nice person, a good instructor and a good Karateka. So maybe I was expecting too much...

The book is good but I feel that it tries to do too much too quickly, either less techniques with more detail or more 'book' is what I would have liked.

The pictures are (for me) on the small side and I feel that Sensei Morris makes the same mistake that a lot of writers make when they write about martial arts - including a bit of history and a bit of medical theory and a bit of... I wish authors would write a book on each subject that takes their fancy rather than bits - it simply doesn't do justice to any of the subjects touched on (pressure point pun intended).

Now, in fairness other people's opinions may be different and if you like books that cover a wide area relatively simply then this may be right up your street.

One thing that can be said is that the vast majority of techniques shown actually work - not always the case by any means in books on this subject!!!

I guess I want an expanded edition - Vol II please Vince :)

I have a mixed feeling an review about this book. Best way to describe the book, it is split in thirds - first third all text and some pointers on how to deal with situations. Perhaps some mental preparations, to-dos and don'ts. Second third is the part which more interesting. Defence techniques. The final third is a strange addition. It is some Bunkai techniques (kata applications).
I will focus on the defence section. I would say, the techniques shown in this book is perhaps better understood by those who have some degree of martial arts knowledge. To execute the moves or defence techniques and the attacks which are shown can only be related to if you have had practice. I already study martial arts and focus on the self defence part of my art. I am studying other techniques to broaden my knowledge and hence why I am seeking this from some books and some styles. What is interesting from all the research is the way some of the writers have been explaining the techniques or describing a situation.
I would say the instructor who wrote the beginning part of the book does provide good valid remarks. I am disappointed with the defence techniques. They are too focused on the style of the art the instructor teaches - Kissaki Kai. The description and images do not match and they are too many alternative descriptive text rather than images to show the effect. E.g. Hand grab. Description - Distract the attacker with a kick, or shout loud, or slap, or spit. Picture shows kick then next move. This could have been better shown with several examples. The pressure point technique shown was also poor.

I think some of the defence techniques are questionable and perhaps i have come across more effective and simpler techniques.

Having boxed for years, i decided to get a bit of background on the "Eastern" way of doing things. However, I found this book waffles on, and was not that clear in the text

You won't learn to be a ninja overnight with this, nor will it make you invincible out on the streets. It is fascinating and will be excellent as part of an existing training regime in another art perhaps. A lot more plausible and scholarly that the usual rubbish of 'We teach you how to be a martial arts superman in ten pages and four photos.'
