Summary

From a standing perspective, the audiobook will explain how to keep the distance in a fight as well as what type of takedowns an attacker may employ. The text outlines these takedowns in detail and show ways to avoid or counter these techniques. Users are instructed on how to perform these vary same takedowns, so that the defender can become the attacker should the need arise.

Great listen

The narrator stays consistent and produces this nuetral attitude. That sort of takes away the stress of thinking about some of this stuff if it has happened. Most schools I have been to, just skip this basic stuff so, I felt it was helpful. Though it is the narration of a book. So some things won't make sense unless you can really try to imagine it. Which is great. It makes that solid in your mind. So when you get the actual book you can destroy your preconceived notions and correct your self.

My point is that. The narrator really made the audiobook worth the purchase.

pointless without the illustrations

The information would be great if the intended illustrations went with it. I would imagine if the pictures were there it would be a great book.
