STREET KARATE
A Complete Course in Self-Defense
by John McSweeney
Street Karate consists of 35 real-life case studies of men and women from all
walks of life who used easy-to-learn karate techniques to defend themselves against muggers, rapists, murderers, drunks, carjackers and other bad guys. The author, a member of the World Martial Arts Hall of Fame and a former Self-Defense Instructor of the Year, analyzes each incident to show the events that led up to the attack, the strikes and moves used to stop the aggressors cold, the results and the lessons that can be applied to other situations you may find yourself facing some dark night. You'll also have the opportunity to learn McSweeney's unique and highly successful training and exercise program, called Tiger Moves, that makes the karate strikes so brutally effective.

posturing; it is based on street-proven techniques. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 96 pp.

MASTER'S GUIDE TO BASIC SELF-DEFENSE
Progressive Retraining of the Reflexive Response
by Master Hei Long

At least once in his life, every man will stand face-to-face with an aggressor. In that moment of truth, he must be prepared to defend himself-to the death if necessary. Despite common self-defense myths, there is no deeply mysterious method by which you can touch an opponent in a strategic spot and bring him to his knees.

The core of any system of self-defense is the response to an attack. but certain natural bodily responses (such as ducking and blinking) often leave you exposed and defenseless. In an unexpected attack, none of your martial arts training is going to help you if these reflexes are allowed to take over.

Master Hei Long's training program focuses on deconditioning such counterproductive responses to assault. Through a structured learning process that combines fundamental defensive maneuvers with the retraining of the central nervous system, you will learn how to instinctively avoid common assaults and counterattack with maximum efficiency and ferocity to deftly and swiftly crush your assailant. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, illus., 124pp. $14.00

STREET LETHAL
Unarmed Urban Combat
by Sammy Franco

To survive a real streetfight, forget about those fancy leaping kicks and preplanned responses that you learned in the dojo-they simply won't work in a real-life encounter, Street Lethal confronts this problem by both outlining the principles for a realistic self-defense system and taking a controversial look at the current state of martial arts in America.

Sammy Franco argues that traditional martial arts are locked into ancient styles and forms and have lost their effectiveness as combat systems. In response to this, he has founded Contemporary Fighting Arts, a hard-hitting system that goes tot the hear of a streetfighting situation and ends it quickly. Street Lethal is a provocative book on unarmed combat that every serious martial artist should read. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, 192pp. $15.95

GUGE CONGJI
Seven Primary Targets to Take Anyone Out of a Fight
by Master Hei Long

Structurally disabling an opponent is like removing the bullets from his gun. It is unlikely that he can throw a punch at you with a broken wrist or elbow, and his ability to advance is substantially inhibited by a busted knee or ankle. That is the principle of guge gongji: stopping an attacker by breaking his instrument of danger. In unarmed combat, that means his ability to move and strike.

Guge gongji is an alternative to killing, a second-to-last resort that should be used only when conventional self-defense tactics are likely to be ineffective. Master Hei Long's precise instructions and illustrations show you how to use your opponent's body as your weapon. Learn the seven primary targets guaranteed to take anyone out of a fight. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, illus., 188pp. ISBN 0-87364-635-5 $15.00

FLOOR FIGHTING
Stompings, Maimings, and Other Things to Avoid When a Fight Goes to the Ground
by Marc "Animal" MacYoung

Anyone who's ever been in or seen a real fight or two knows that, more than likely, it will end up with the participants rolling around on the ground.

Animal discusses how to fall without damaging yourself, how to slam your opponent down with the most devastating result, how to take somebody down who's trying to stomp you from above, the quickest ways to hurt someone once you're both on the ground and your two options once you are back on your feet-getting out of there or kicking the shit out of your downed attacker! 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, photos, illus., 200pp. $19.00

FISTS, WITS, AND A WICKED RIGHT
Surviving on the Wild Side of the Street
by Marc "Animal" MacYoung

One thing Marc "Animal" MacYoung does not pretend to be is a traditionalist. As he puts it in this companion to Cheap Shots, Ambushes, and Other Lessons, "It's awareness, or wits, and fists that will keep you safe out there, not some fancy Oriental fighting form."

Here Animal focuses on the fine points and brutal technicalities of blows and targeting-not just how to hit but where to hit. Because the fact is, the key to winning a fight is not necessarily to hit faster, or even harder, but to do damage to the other guy before he can do it to you. On the flip side, once you know what hurts, you'll know how to protect your most vulnerable areas with a littler more gusto. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, softcover, illus., 152pp. $14.00
