Elite Forces Handbook of Unarmed Combat

This essential guide provides a detailed examination of fighting techniques, with clear descriptions of actions. The text is supported by black-and-white photographs and line drawings showing specific techniques, many used by elite special forces. Starting with an overview of the historical development of unarmed combat, the book explores the martial arts heritage and works through training (both physical and mental), vulnerable areas of the body, and specific techniques for self-defence and dealing with armed or multiple assailants.
