“Every step is clearly described in the text and often accompanied by the familiar foot diagrams… This book is written for the busy [person] who has no time to undergo a full training program at a dojo. lt offers easy-to-learn karate responses in typical self-defense situations. Diligent practice at home will equip one with … more than instinct in an emergency situation." — Mainichi Shimbun

Practical Karate: Self-Defense in Special Situations is the final volume of the classic six-volume series by Masatoshi Nakayama and Donn Draeger. Beginning with tactics for dealing with automobile situations, escalating to tied-hand situations, then switchblade, chain, meat cleaver, and razor attacks, and finishing with tactics for dealing with handgun attacks, the authors cover a wide range of effective responses in situations calling for advanced tactics. This volume helps to replace false confidence with an ability to make a quick, realistic appraisal of a dangerous situation and take the correct countermeasures for personal safety.
