Learn specialist training techniques that could help save your life!

With the aid of superb line artworks, Unarmed Combat reveals how special forces soldiers are taught to excel in hand-to-hand fighting: how they maximize body weight, and use various strikes, throws, locks, and constrictions to defeat opponents. It explains how military units have combined several martial arts to create combat systems for defense against multiple assailants, for fighting on the ground, and for dealing with edged and impact weapons. You'll learn what works against attackers with firearms and, more importantly, what doesn't. Experts in unarmed combat offer their proven tips, and explain both the mental preparation and the physical techniques needed to prepare to defend yourself so, if necessary, you can temporarily incapacitate your attacker and escape. With easy-to-follow illustrations and handy pullout lists with key information, Unarmed Combat is the definitive guide for anyone who wants to be ready for anything that might happen.
