Poolology - Mastering the Art of Aiming By Brian Crist
eBook (ePub): $9.99
***** eBook edition ***** Poolology is a breakthrough aiming system for pool players. I was once asked, "How do you aim?", and I couldn't answer. I said I didn't know, and I'm sure the... More > player that asked me that thought I was holding out on him, keeping some great secret to myself. But it was true - other than to call it instinct, I had no idea how to aim. I'd never been taught how to aim. I just shoot balls into the pocket. This question, "How do you aim?", is what prompted me to write Poolology. After experimenting with various aiming systems, I learned that most aiming systems don't work for most people. That explains why so many pool players struggle to be consistent shot makers. I wanted to fix that. I wanted to find a system that could teach players how to aim any shot on the table, how to develop a feel for pocketing balls. No such system existed, until now. It's called Poolology!< Less

La Canne Royale By Chris Slee et al.
Paperback: $11.83
Prints in 3-5 business days
La Canne holds a unique position in the development of martial arts in the nineteenth century. It was at once a weapon for self-defense taught in the boxing and savate clubs across France and Belgium... More > as well as a tool for gymnastics and physical education. The canne was taught to the officer class in military academies and to children in public schools. This volume presents two mid-century methods for learning the canne which encompass both these aspects of its use. Larribeau's 1856 A New Theory of the Art of the Canne concentrates more on self-defence and introduces lessons against a mannequin as a teaching method. Humé's 1862 Treatise and Theory of La Canne Royale centres more on the gymnastic and athletic aspects of the canne. Both provide a fascinating insight into the canne before it was codified by Vigny and incorporated into the composite English martial art of Bartitsu.< Less

Tricks of Self-Defence, A Useful Book for Everybody (Collector's Edition) By W. H. Collingridge
Paperback: $9.53
Prints in 3-5 business days
Probably the 1st English book to record the use of pressure points in self-defence. This historic work was a breakthrough in its day & remains a classic. Until the publication of 'Tricks of... More > Self-Defence, A Useful Book for Everybody', in about 1910, most of the English books on jujitsu and connected martial arts dealt more with the systems in question. These were often quite complicated & took time to master. W. H. Collingridge's concept was to publish a practical, illustrated textbook for the everyday person, outlining the effective applications that anyone can easily pick up for self-defence. The result was this book, which graphically outlines 33 ‘Standing Positions’, and 9 ‘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 1st of its kind in English to record Japanese techniques of applied practical self-defence.< Less
