Author Danny Indio has done a good job in the book of covering the 4 fighting ranges: Kicking Range, Punching Range, Trapping, and Grappling (both standing and ground). He covers stances and movement, upper body arm and hand strikes and defenses, lower body kicks and defenses, standing clinch fighting and defenses, leg takedowns and defenses, basic ground grappling positions and escapes, including ground strikes, arm bars and chokes plus defenses against each. There is some knife defense examples both standing and from the ground that I question a little, however, I concur with his principle of painfully damaging opponent first (striking attacker eyes, throat, groin, knee) before attempting disarm of the knife. See Table of Context for more subject matter details. Of course, there are volumes of books written about some of his individual topics in far more detail, however, overall I think he has written a comprehensive self- defense book. Besides it never hurts to go over the basics once in a while,
The accompanying DVD has some good standing upper body hand and arm striking and also defensive drills. DVD also has some good lower body kicks and defensive drills. The problem is the DVDs picture is not clear, fuzzy. and small - very amateurish!!!
