18 Lethal Karate Strikes: Secrets of the Meridian

Field, Cliff Trade Paperback

It is said that the original martial arts masters would only give their secrets to the most trusted studentsand never to Westerners. From the perspective of acupoint strikes it is easy to see why these claims originated: the masters knew that Westerners could not understand the underlying concepts. Until now. Veteran martial artist Cliff Field has been a physician for nearly 30 years and has used acupuncture in his practice for nearly that long. His background in both Eastern and Western medicine, as well as his years studying karate, gives him a unique insight into how strikes to specific points on the human body can cause unexpectedeven lethaldamage. In this book, Field gives you a deep understanding of human anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics, and energeticsthe flow of chi through the meridiansas it pertains to martial arts techniques. This easy-to-understand examination of karate from both a Western medical perspective and an Eastern energetic perspective demonstrates how to attack the body at its weakest points, both anatomically and energetically. Cliff Field, M.D., graduated from Hahnemann University in 1980 and finished his residency in family medicine in 1983. He received certification in acupuncture between 1983 and 1984. He began his martial arts studies in 1986 and earned his black belt in 1999 from the International Karate League (IKL), founded by Walter Nishioka. He currently holds the rank of sandan and is a sensei of a dojo. This book is a result of his combined knowledge of Western and Eastern medicine and martial arts.

20 Scientific Self-Defence

Fairbairn, W.E. Paladin Press 2006 9.78E+12 Trade paperback

New 165 p. 

One of the most highly sought volumes in the library of legendary hand-to-hand combat manuals is finally available from Paladin Press. W.E. Fairbairn's Scientific Self-Defence, published in 1931 as a slightly modified reprint of Defendu (1926), outlines the brutally effective close-quarters combat program developed during Fairbairn's renowned service with the Shanghai Municipal Police. Fairbairn's straightforward techniques for defending against various holds, dealing with assailants armed with guns or knives, applying truly effective holds and throws, using the club and walking stick for self-defense, and other areas of close-in fighting have had an extraordinary influence on the development of the combat arts. His immense impact on generations of fighting men from an elite cadre of instructors who trained soldiers in realistic hand-to-hand combat during World War II to today's practitioners of hard-core self-defense can now be studied directly from the source in this quality reprint edition of Scientific Self-Defence. Captain W.E. Fairbairn taught unarmed combat to the famed British Commandos and the U.S. armed forces during World War II. Before the war he served as assistant commissioner of the Shanghai Police Force. He was the inventor of the Fairbairn Commando Knife and the author of the classics Get Tough and Shooting to Live.

22 Self Defense for Radicals: A-Z Guide for Subversive Struggle

Z., Mickey Zine/Pamphlet

Brand New 

Radicals, feminists, environmentalists. Activists for animal rights, human rights, civil rights. There are plenty of rebels and dissidents putting their asses on the line. Conversely, there's never been a shortage of reactionaries seeking to repress such vision and passion. Learning how to fight and/or defend yourself is not the same as promoting belligerent, anti-social behavior. While talk of non-violence is understandable and the struggle for peace has never been more essential, let's face it: The odds are that sooner or later you're going to end up in a confrontation that may escalate into physical violence. So, why not be prepared? Self-Defense for Radicals will get you off and running in the right direction. From eye gouges to groin punches--you'll find a powerful collection of tactics with which we can fight back. Interspersed with words of wisdom and guidance from Emma Goldman, Bruce Lee, Angela Davis, and even Patrick Swayze, this pocket-sized pamphlet will inspire readers to not only speak truth to power but also deliver a sharp elbow to power's jutting jaw. Presented in the street-smart style we've come to expect from Mickey Z., Self-Defense for Radicals dares you to re-examine what we perceive as acceptable behavior--both by the oppressors and the revolutionaries.

23 The Ancient Art of Life and Death: The Book of Dim Mak

Walker, A. Flane & Bauer, Richard C. Trade Paperback

Brand New 

Contrary to popular myth, the original purpose of dim-mak was not the training of assassins. It was an intensive study of the medical arts that incorporated the martial arts, and its ultimate goal was to heal, not to destroy. True to the intent of the ancient Chinese masters, here is an undiluted, holistic study of dim-mak as both a martial and a healing art. A modern supplement to the handful of classical texts in existence, it preserves the integrity of the traditional teachings while tearing down the walls of mystery and intrigue that surround the art. After providing a historical overview of dim-mak and Traditional Chinese Medicine, the book explores the physiological mechanism of dim-mak from Eastern and Western perspectives. In addition, it offers a rare look at the fabled 36-Chamber training sequence traditionally used to teach dim-mak; in-depth analyses of each of the acupoints on the 12 main meridians, including their medicinal uses, martial applications and antidotes; and an introduction to the herbal pharmacology that was an integral part of traditional dim-mak training. Those seeking a balanced, professional perspective on dim-mak will find this insightful guide an indispensable resource. For academic study only. A. Flane Walker is a traditional taoist martial artist, acupuncturist, herbalist and student of Asiduedro Adlawana, Walker Pinkett, and Mastuetsu Kushubi. He was the last of Master Kushubi's students to be taught the complete 36-Chamber training sequence. Among his other accomplishments, Mr. Walker has served as vice president of Tiger Yangs Moo Ye Do International, and taught at West Coast Hotokan headquarters, where he and the late Edwin Hamile compared and exchanged concepts. Mr. Walker is now considered the Grand Master of the Won Hop Loong Chuan system of martial arts. A martial artist and longtime student of A. Flane Walker, Richard C. Bauer is the author of numerous professional journal articles on military history and martial arts subjects. He is a highly decorated civilian contractor with the DOD, serving with distinction during the Persian Gulf War, Haiti, Somalia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo, and Operation Enduring Freedom in Afghanistan.
