9780007102310: SAS Active Library - Self Defence

A compact, highly illustrated manual of self-defence techniques based on those taught by the SAS.

As everyone is aware, violent crime is on the increase and we are all potential victims. For example, did you know that if you live in London you have a one-in-four chance of being attacked or your house burgled?

However, help is at hand. As part of an exciting new series which presents a range of SAS skills in various fields adapted for a civilian readership, The SAS Active Library: Self defence makes sure that you are equipped, mentally and physically, to cope with a wide variety of threatening circumstances and confrontations.

General sections on fitness and the law lead into the basics of self-defence and using everyday objects as defensive weapons. Attacks on public transport, in your own car or by animals are all covered, as are sections on medical emergencies and tips especially for women to deal with the likes of gang attacks, stalking and malicious phonecalls.

Authoritative and accessible, all defence techniques covered are illustrated with clear, step-by-step photographs and diagrams.
