In this new volume to his discourse of jujitsu defense tactics and techniques, the award-winning instructor analyzes and charts the human body's multitude of nerve and pressure points--and then presents a wide variety of submission techniques that use pain induction to bring an attacker under your control without injury. The text covers the secret behind the art of jujitsu, ki, mushin and self-defense, pain compliance, pressure-point and balance-point techniques, and much more. A fascinating study of the human body as both a weapon and target, complete with extensive photo sequences, highly detailed technique breakdowns, and scientifically compiled nerve- and pressure-point charts, this book is an excellent reference and learning resource.
