"Simple, clear, easy to learn...Dispenses with hours of needed to practice for the professional...Outstanding primer on self-defense."-Marine Corps Gazette Practical Karate: Fundamentals of Self-Defense is the first volume in the classic six-volume series by Masatoshi Nakayama and Donn Draeger. Written for those too busy to devote hours a day to Karate training, it is a serious introduction to the basic elements of self defense. Excerpts from Practical Karate: "The secrets of self-defense can be summed up in the proverbs: 'a wise man avoids danger' and 'to run away is the best way to win.' Yet, sometimes you are not able to choose these courses. I select here several techniques which you will be able to master with comparative ease, thus protecting yourself more effectively against any unarmed assailant." - M.Nakayama "Properly learned karate response will teach you to face emergency attack situations or to run-both with confidence. The few minutes a day you spend in practice will never be wasted." - Don Draeger
