W. E. Fairbairn - Scientific Self-Defence
D. Appleton Century Company | 1931 | ISBN: N/A | 165 pages | PDF | 7.8 MB

W.E. Fairbairn’s Scientific Self-Defence, published in 1931 as a slightly modified reprint of Defendu (1926), outlines the brutally effective close-quarters combat program developed during Fairbairn’s renowned service with the Shanghai Municipal Police. Fairbairn’s straightforward techniques for defending against various holds, dealing with assailants armed with guns or knives, applying truly effective holds and throws, using the club and walking stick for self-defense, and other areas of close-in fighting have had an extraordinary influence on the development of the combat arts.
