Not-the-Same
I bought this book for a womens self-defense class. Thought the book is quite old published in 1991 the information is relevant. The paper is more brittle to, not like paper in other textbooks. This book introduces different self defense techniques. This book also helps in identifying situations which yield self-defense skills. However I think that taking a self-defense class is better than reading a book, chances of muscle memory is better when taking a class than remembering information from this book. The statistics are quite relevant being that sexually assaulted victims are assaulted by people that they know and somewhere close to where they live. These same statistics are the same for victims of assault. The basics are to read your attacker or potential attacker by not appearing vulnerable in body language or anything else. In assault situations it comes down to interpretations of the situation. I bought the book used in great condition.

The following is self-defense advice for women. Everyone should take 5 minutes to read this. It may save your life or a loved one's life. In daylight hours, refresh yourself of these things to do in an emergency situation... This is for you, and for you to share with your wife, your children, & everyone you know. After reading these 9 crucial tips, forward them to someone you care about. It never hurts to be careful in this crazy world we live in.

1. Tip from Tae Kwon Do :The elbow is the strongest point on your body. If you are close enough to use it, do!

2. Learned this from a tourist guide. If a robber asks for your wallet and/or purse, DO NOT HAND IT TO HIM. Toss it away from you... Chances are that he is more interested in your wallet and/or purse than you, and he will go for the wallet/purse.
RUN LIKE MAD IN THE OTHER DIRECTION!

3. If you are ever thrown into the trunk of a car, kick out the back tail lights and stick your arm out the hole and start waving like crazy.. The driver won't see you, but everybody else will. This has saved lives.

4. Women have a tendency to get into their cars after shopping, eating, working, etc., and just sit (doing their checkbook, or making a list, etc. DON'T DO THIS!) The predator will be watching you, and this is the perfect opportunity for him to get in on the passenger side, put a gun to your head, and tell you where to go. AS SOON AS YOU GET INTO YOUR CAR , LOCK THE DOORS AND LEAVE..

If someone is in the car with a gun to your head DO NOT DRIVE OFF, Repeat: DO NOT DRIVE OFF! Instead gun the engine and speed into anything, wrecking the car. Your Air Bag will save you. If the person is in the back seat they will get the worst of it. As soon as the car crashes bail out and run. It is better than having them find your body in a remote location.

5. A few notes about getting into your car in a parking lot, or parking garage:
A.) Be aware:look around you, look into your car, at the passenger side floor , and in the back seat.
B.) If you are parked next to a big van, enter your car from the passenger door.
Most serial killers attack their victims by pulling them into their vans while the women
are attempting to get into their cars. C.) Look at the car parked on the driver's side of your vehicle, and the passenger side.. If a male is sitting alone in the seat nearest your car, you may want to walk back into the mall, or work, and get a guard/policeman to walk you back out. IT IS ALWAYS BETTER TO BE SAFE THAN SORRY. (And better paranoid than dead.)

6. ALWAYS take the elevator instead of the stairs. Stairwells are horrible places to be alone and the perfect crime spot. This is especially true at NIGHT!)

7. If the predator has a gun and you are not under his control, ALWAYS RUN! The predator will only hit you (a running target) 4 in 100 times; and even then, it most likely WILL NOT be a vital organ. RUN, Preferably in a zig -zag pattern!

8. As women, we are always trying to be sympathetic: STOP It may get you raped, or killed. Ted Bundy, the serial killer, was a good-looking, well educated man, who ALWAYS played on the sympathies of unsuspecting women. He walked with a cane, or a limp, and often asked 'for help' into his vehicle or with his vehicle, which is when he abducted his next victim.

9. Another Safety Point: Someone just told me that her friend heard a crying baby on her porch the night before last, and she called the police because it was late and she thought it was weird.. The police told her 'Whatever you do, DO NOT open the door..' The lady then said that it sounded like the baby had crawled near a window, and she was worried that it would crawl to the street and get run over. The policeman said, 'We already have a unit on the way, whatever you do, DO NOT open the door.' He told her that they think a serial killer has a baby's cry recorded and uses it to coax women out of their homes thinking that someone dropped off a baby.. He said they have not verified it, but have had several calls by women saying that they hear baby's cries outside their doors when they're home alone at night.

10. Water scam! If you wake up in the middle of the night to hear all your taps outside running or what you think is a burst pipe, DO NOT GO OUT TO INVESTIGATE! These people turn on all your outside taps full blast so that you will go out to investigate and then attack.

As a lifetime student of the martial arts of karate, jujitsu, judo, krav maga and other combat systems, I found this book to be an excellent guide in setting up a practical self-defense course. The organization of the material makes this instructional text unique. This book breaks down the learning of the material into easy to follow steps. The four sections include the following: The first section covers the three A's of personal safety which include awareness, assessment and action. The second section deals with neutralizing techniques. Counterattacks are delt with in section three. The final section is the applications involved in defending against choke holds, bear hugs and other attacks. In conclusion, this is a book for both the novice and the expert in self-defense.

Rating: 4 stars. Joseph J. Truncale (Author: Shotokan Karate Self-Defense Techniques: Practical Combat Karate for the Streets)

Although the Karate influence on this book is hard to miss it is still an excellent template to how self defense should be taught. If you are an instructor you can use this book as a template to helping you design your lesson plans. If you don't like a given technique then insert one that you do like following the author's method and you will be surprised at the outcome. The method of instruction and reinforcement that the author utilizes will work for any introductory self-defense course. I've read this book 100+ times and I am still learning from it.
