Tricks of Self-defence: A Useful Book for Everybody (Collector's Edition) By W. H. Collingridge
eBook (PDF): $6.53
Until the publication of Tricks of Self-Defence in about 1910, most, if not all, of the English language books on jujitsu and connected martial arts dealt more with the systems in question, which... More > were often quite complicated and took time to master. W. H. Collingridge’s insight was to publish a practical, illustrated textbook for the everyday man or woman in the street, outlining the effective applications that anyone can easily pick up in order to defend themselves. The result was this book which graphically outlines thirty-three ‘Standing Positions’ and nine ‘Ground Tricks’. All of these require little space to practise and notably some use arm or wrist grappling, while applying pressure to nerve points. In these respects, "Tricks of Self-Defence, A Useful Book for Everybody", is considered to be the first of its kind in English to record Japanese techniques of practical applied self-defence. This "Collector's Edition" is reproduced from the original to impart a sense both of history and effectiveness.< Less
