Practical Karate: Self-Defense in Special Situations is the final volume of the classic six-volume series by Masatoshi Nakayama and Donn Draeger.
Beginning with tactics for dealing with automobile situations, escalating to tied-hand situations, then switchblade, chain, meat cleaver, and razor attacks, and finishing with tactics for dealing with handgun attacks, the authors cover a wide range of effective responses in situations calling for advanced tactics.
This martial arts manual helps to replace false confidence with an ability to make a quick, realistic appraisal of a dangerous situation and take the correct countermeasures for personal safety.
