Are you a lean-mean-fighting machine who has had years of martial arts training? If so, then you don’t need a book on self-defence. This book is written for the people who do need a book on self-defence; the people who can’t fight. Maybe they’re not so young any more, or a bit overweight, or haven’t done any sport since they were at school. Maybe they know that they’re never going to be able to fight like a tough guy in the movies. But they also know that there isn’t going to be a police officer nearby when they really need one. “Self-Defence for Non-Experts” is a little different from most self-defence manuals. There are no complicated manoeuvres that the non-expert would have no chance of actually using in real life. There are no fancy martial arts moves that involve striking with the fingers or trying to kick someone in the head. Everything that “looks cool” but which would be of no practical use to the non-expert has been excluded. Only the simplest physical techniques are featured and they are described in a straightforward manner. Much of the book consists of practical advice about what works and what doesn’t work for a person who isn’t trained in the martial arts. The suggestions and recommendations are realistic and sensible. This is a book for very ordinary people who aren’t so foolish as to think that they can turn themselves into an expert fighter merely by reading a book. Are you an average person who isn’t a powerhouse of muscles, nor as flexible as a gymnast, but who would like to be better prepared to protect yourself if a situation were to arise where you had no choice but to physically defend yourself as best you can? Then this is the book for you.
