Great for martial artists Customer Rating: Summary: Outstanding work on neglected aspect of jujutsu Comment: As he did in his "Beginner" and "Intermediate" jujutsu books, George Kirby has written a lucid work that strikes an excellent balance between fighting theory and practical application. Very highly recommended. Customer Rating: Summary: Laughable Comment: Nothing new and tons of wrong info. Not as bad as his Jutte book but close. Customer Rating: Summary: Becky Comment: this book showed my husband why I had equal strength to him. however when I was studing in az. in the late 6o's I was taught that there were 360 main contact points for the nerve contacts and I do understand why a lot of them were not explained in the book. They need to only be taught to the student that has a complete working knowledge and has already completed years of instruction.
