According to the Oxford dictionary ‘self-defense’ is the defense of one's person or interests, especially through the use of physical force, which is permitted in certain cases as an answer to a charge of violent crime.

The Tao Of Juu Kune Do by [Sotelo, Marvin "Knife"]

The Tao Of Juu Kune Do Kindle Edition


Marvin "Knife" Sotelo


Developed over a number of years by the renowned Bruce Lee, Jeet Kune Do—which translates as “the way of the intercepting fist”—was designed as an antithesis to the overly formulaic structures of other martial arts. For all its freedoms, Juu Kune Do has a unique structure that must be mastered in order to present an organized defense or mount an effective counterattack against gun attacks as well as knife attacks. This fundamental training manual provides instructions for learning the fundamental aspects of Jeet Kune Do, including basic footwork stances, defensive and offensive techniques, kicks, and the essential teachings of Juu Kune Do. The central principle of interception is addressed along with the five-way attack and key modes of grappling.



Taiho Jutsu: Arresting martial arts of feudal and modern Japan


Maurizio Colonna


We announce you the release of the English translation of Taiho Jutsu: Arresting martial arts of feudal and modern Japan, a book by Maurizio Colonna (Western European Director and Representative for Italy of Edo Machi-Kata Taiho Jutsu).

Taiho Jutsu is the martial art of arrest, originally adopted by Japanese police forces. It is a very different system from all other martial arts, since the practitioner not only aims for his own safety, but also has to arrest his assailant. The original techniques of Taiho Jutsu are based on traditional Japanese martial arts schools, and were used for public order purposes after the unification of Japan in the 17th century, at the beginning of the feudal era. Centuries later, after the end of the Second World War, the changed social consciousness and modernization of the country led the Japanese police forces to standardize their own system with techniques suitable for a modern personal defense. The Taiho Jutsu is constantly evolving. For this reason, in Europe and America, it is used by police forces, security workers and private citizens.

Full of historical information, pictures and practical applications, this book is a useful reference and a training aid for both beginners and veteran practitioners.

ISBN 979-10-325-0011-8 / 150 pages - prix : 15 euros


" Cet ouvrage est une étude du "close-combat" en tant qu'art martial moderne adapté au travail des militaires dans le contexte actuel. Il y est question de Close-Combat mais aussi de Sambo, de Krav-Maga, de Kali philippin et des méthodes développées dans le même esprit.
Le lien entre l'art du combat rapproché dans les forces armées et les arts martiaux classiques est le fil conducteur tout au long du développement du sujet. Ce livre représente le cheminement des recherches d'un spécialiste des sports de combat bénéficiant de l'expérience opérationnelle d'une carrière militaire. Un livre original et inclassable navigant en permanence entre les thématiques des art martiaux et du militaria."
