The aim of “Defend Yourself with Karate” is to provide the reader with one of the most effective forms of unarmed self-defence in the world.
Easy-to-follow explanations of Karate methods of self-protection against unprovoked attacks by others, which can be practiced in the privacy of one's home, make this a book ideally suited to the needs of both men and women.
Illustrated principally with 95 exceptionally clear explanatory drawings, specially drawn by Fred Thompson, the subject matter is carefully planned to guide the reader step by step to expertise in the art of self-defence.
A. P. Harrington has been practicing the Japanese martial arts for the past 23 years and, amongst others, has received teaching in Karate from former Japanese Karate champion Sensei Keinosuke Enoeda (5th Dan) and instruction in Judo from former Japanese Judo champion Sensei Teizo Kawamura (7th Dan).
This invaluable tuition from Japanese masters has served to equip the author with a profound knowledge of the ancient and challenging fighting arts of Japan.
