Get down and dirty with dirty fighting!

Everyone has been in situations that make them uncomfortable, that make them fear for their safety. We all hope that we never face the day when we truly fear for our lives. If that day comes, it pays to know the secrets of dirty fighting. This is no time for you to be squeamish; this is the time to pull out all the stops in order to save your life. In this reprinting of a guide to military combat and self-defense, you’ll learn all the ways to defend yourself from physical assaults when major weapons are not handy. Learn how to use your “natural weapons” to defend yourself from:
  • Striking attacks (punches and blows)
  • Rush attacks from high, middle, and low positions
  • Body locks
  • Strangle holds
  • Knife and pistol hold-ups
  • And more!
You’ll learn how to use elements of wrestling, boxing, and other “dirtier” methods to defend yourself from even the most violent of attacks. With original illustrations and clear instructions originally written by a US army lieutenant, you’ll never worry again about how to defend yourself with Original Methods of Self-Defense: Dirty Fighting.
