KISS – ‘Keep it simple, stupid’, the US Navy’s acronym goes. So we have: no long, complicated instructions, no steps 1–8 of illustrations to follow. Just brief descriptions of hundreds of tips, exercises and moves that you can use to protect yourself.

501 Unarmed Self-Defence Skills takes the reader through all kinds of situations, from how to defuse a confrontation through body language to putting someone into a lock hold, from grappling and striking to defeating someone who’s holding a gun. Clearly and briefly explained, the instructions of moves, throws and dodges can be understood in seconds and just might save your life.

Written by a self-defence expert and with 100 black-&-white line artworks, 501 Unarmed Self-Defence Skills is an expert, pocket-sized guide to ducking, locking, holding, throwing, kicking and deflecting your way out of trouble.
