A promoter of Jiu-Jitsu in the early 20th Century in England, Percy Longhurst studied under Senseis Tani and Uyenishi. He was familiar with, and possibly studied Bartitsu under Barton-Wright and Pierre Vigny. A prolific writer, and accomplished amateur athlete, Longhurst quickly turned his skills to Self Defense and the mysterious foreign martial art of Jiu-Jitsu. In 1906 he published the first edition of this celebrated and oft reprinted manual. Combining western defensive methods and Japanese, Longhurst's innovative manual included a section for ladies self defense. So dense with material, yet so clearly written, that it was revised and reprinted for decades, at least until the 1950's with at least 11 editions. This is one of the most important of the early western self defense manuals due not only to its emphasis on Jiu-Jitsu but its combination with other western methods. It's sure to please western martial artist and early Jiu-Jitsu researchers alike.
