Guillaume Morel, Frédéric Bouammache, "Protégor : Guide pratique de sécurité personnelle, self-défense et survie urbaine"

Contrairement aux autres ouvrages actuellement disponibles sur la self-défense, voici le premier manuel francophone qui traite en détail les trois aspects complémentaires que sont la sécurité personnelle, la self-défense et la survie urbaine. Les auteurs détaillent ces thèmes en trois parties distinctes ponctuées d'encarts pratiques, et illustrées de nombreuses photos et de schémas explicatifs : - la sécurité personnelle présente tou...

Authentic Shaolin Heritage: Training Methods Of 72 Arts Of Shaolin

Jin Jing Zhong's, "72 Arts of Shaolin," is an amazing compilation of training and conditioning techniques. It preserves much of the ancient Shaolin training knowledge that would otherwise have been lost after the Communist Revolution. I have added many of the techniques to my own training regimen, and I only wish that I had found this book when I was younger! Most of the practices are safe but highly taxing and require a 100% committ...

Combat Techniques Taiji Xingyi

This is one of the few books on neijia I would recommend on arts that are difficult at best to learn live. The detail on basic training is excellent, something that many western "experts" talk about but seldom "eat the bitter". The historical info is probably oral transmission from Wang Pei Sheng who trained with a who's who of Beijing teachers. Would have preferred to see a tape of the form. Getting it from a book without previous e...

The Illustrated Ninja Handbook: Hidden Techniques of Ninjutsu

This book is really good and the illustrations are really helpful. I have gotten a few other books and lost interest after a few pages but this one really has illustrations and pictures and it explains what is being done and why with differing views of the different positions. I HIGHLY recommend this book and I HIGHLY recommend that they write a few more! I'd pre-order in a heartbeat! This is a very informative book on Ninjutsu, not ...

Kata Bunkai: The Secret Karate Techniques

This is an extremely well done book detailing how acupuncture points underlay many of the traditional karate moves. Moves that appear to not make sense are shown to be far more sophisticated than when first observed. There are anatomical drawings throughout the book to make it easier to visualize. The book is printed on high quality paper with color photos on almost every page. For anyone training in traditional Japanese or Okinawan ...

A Girl's Guide to the Martial Arts (Ener-Chi Books)

Based on ancient methods of fighting developed in the Asian countries of Japan, China, and the Philippines, most martial arts today are practiced as a type of exercise or method of self-defense. Martial arts are about strength and physical energy—every practice is a workout for your entire body! But they are also about mind over matter, respect, and gaining inner “chi” This book presents basic descriptions of Karate, Judo, Jujitsu, A...
