By A Customer on 25 Feb. 2004
Format: Paperback
The author of this book is a doctor, and straight away he states that as black magic is magic based on evil, his 'black medicine' is medical science used to kill and incapacitate. This book is his highly detailed scientific study of vulnerable nerves, arteries and bones and how to use them to literaly destroy your opponent.
The contents is different to the normal martial arts book in that it does not feature photographic step by step techniques, but a mixture of anatomical diagrams and a few pictures of the techniques in action. I would therefore advise that this book is more use to an experienced martial artist (as it assumed the reader understands how to attack with power, accuracy and various techniques), and even more specifically more useful to a practitioner of a 'precise' martial art like karate, wing chun and military styles rather than more brutal forms like muay thai and western boxing.

If you were ever curious about how those Kung Fu heroes dispatch hordes of assailants with one blow, the Black Medicine series show you how. If you are serious about self-defence, these books show you exactly where to strike but please be aware of the consequences.

Shows in detail the human body's most vulnerable points which one could attack during a self-defense situation be it with empty-hands or weapons(including guns). This book is best used when complemented by some type of street fighting martial art or a self-defense course which will teach you the techniques to use in order to attack the vital points illustrated in this book. A definate must buy for anyone interested in protecting their lives in a tough world!

Format: Paperback
Although the description suggests that it will provide a comprehensive analysis of vital points and how to use them, it most certainly does not accurately do the latter. This is as much use to a fighter, as a photograph of the human body would be to an alien surgeon. Sure, you know the area where stuff exists, but without an explanation of how to interact with the points, the information is useless. Anyone who has used pressure points in their art knows that the location of pressure points is just a part of the equation in producing effect. It's all about angles of attack, and how the attack is delivered. This weak book merely lists a series of anatomical weak points, along with mostly vague suggestions of how to attack them.

Interesting book, can't disagree with its effectiveness. However, a fatal blow + other side being able to demonstrate your prior knowledge of said techniques = life in jail. You may want to order this under a false name!

This guy seems to know just where to hit you to make you either drop dead, or poo your pants. He is indepth with decent diagrams and pictures, although some of the knowledge should maybe be left to special forces. This guy is very cool!!
