Modern Hand to Hand Combat : Ancient Samurai Techniques on the Battlefield and in the Street [DVD Included] Mixed media product


Apply the ancient close-combat secrets of the Samurai to modern warfare with this military martial arts self-defense guide.

Today's ground soldier may be required to carry up to 60 lbs. of equipment when on patrol, or in any situation where they might be engaging the enemy.

Unfortunately, mobility is sacrificed in the name of protection.

In close-proximity combat, the modern soldier is at a decided disadvantage compared to his more nimble opponent - but this is nothing new in the history of warfare.

On the battlefields of medieval Japan, the Samurai faced a similar situation.

This created the need to devise a new defense method that you can learn from today.

In his self-defense guide Modern Hand to Hand Combat, Isler has blended Samurai techniques with the battlefield combat needs of the modern soldier.

This book gives step-by-step instructions on how to effectively deal with life and death situations through movements and principles that still hold true.

These principle-driven guidelines make for a variety of self-defense applications and are valuable to everyone from law enforcement officers and security personnel to soldiers and military professionals.

With almost 300 illustrations and a detailed instructional DVD, the guidelines set out in this book and DVD set can, and will, significantly enhance the warfighter's ability to survive in combat.
