Favoring an emphasis on real-life situations over the dramatic kicks and throws of a formal competition, Brazilian jiu-jitsu has quickly become recognized as one of the most effective self-defense techniques for non athletes. This guide provides lessons that anyone, regardless of strength or size, can use to neutralize an attacker in seconds. Offering a variety of defenses against knife and gun attacks, as well as escapes from headlocks, choke holds, and other situations, this volume is the next best thing to taking the classes popular with the military, police academies, and women's self-defense schools.
