List Price: $24.95$16.95If your assailant uses his body as a weapon to harm you, your best defense is to take that weapon away from him by destroying it one limb, joint or vital organ at a time.
Devastating Kung Fu Destructions is your guide to doing exactly that. Sifu Noah Knapp details dozens of ways to disrupt the function and structural integrity of the human body as a means to escaping a deadly assault. Rather than relying on pain to stop an attacker, the kung fu destructions found in this book focus on disabling your assailant so he literally can’t continue assaulting you.
You’ll learn destructions that work against the arms, legs, head, neck and core as well as key principles for applying these devastating skills. Sifu Knapp also explains the finer points of defensive movements (reaction and return strikes) and offensive movements (ripping, capturing and conquering) plus grappling and striking options that work against all areas of the body.
Devastating Kung Fu Destructions is a complete course in the powerful destruction attacks of this ancient martial art. Learn More
