Definitely not only for professionals!
am 12. Juli 2000
I highly recommend this book. It is one of the best Mr. MacYoung has ever written. I am a student of WingTsun and the Filipino Martial Arts, so I wouldn't use some of the techniques which are described in this book. But SO WHAT? All this widespread squabbeling about which martial art TECHNIQUES are the best is rubbish anyway. (Don't believe it? Continue getting punched in the nose or worse!) As Mr. MacYoung (and fortunately not only Mr. MacYoung) points out: The underlying CONCEPTS have to be right and understood! Apart from that, what works in your situation is a good technique. What I really liked about this book was the deep insight you get into the types, causes and types of countermeasures against violence. If you understand what's going on, you will have less fear. If you get an idea (just an IDEA) of what you can do to handle it, your chances of survival increase rapidly. While this book is clearly professional, it is not only for professionals!
