Krav Maga : How to Defend Yourself Against Armed Assault by Imi Sde-Or and Eyal Yanilov - Krav Maga is today's cutting-edge self-defense and hand-to-hand combat system. It has international recognition from experts in Martial Arts and combat instructors as an innovative, effective, and highly practical self-defense and fighting method. Initially developed by Grandmaster Imi Sde-Or (Lichtenfeld) for the Israeli Defense Forces (I.D.F.) and other national security services, Krav Maga has been thoroughly adapted to meet civilian needs. The method was designed so that ordinary citizens, young and old, men and women alike, can successfully use it, regardless of their physical strength. The easily acquired natural techniques, combined with logically structured defense tactics, form a self-defense system characterized by simplicity; this is in fact the true secret of Krav Maga's effectiveness. The volatile Israeli reality gave the Krav Maga School ample opportunity to be tested in real-life situations, more fierce than ordinary street fighting, allowing it to be improved upon and refined accordingly. This is the first and only authorized, comprehensive manual on the Krav Maga discipline, written by its founder, Imi Sde-Or, and his senior disciple and follower, Eyal Yanilov. Illustrated with over 450 photographs and diagrams, this volume specifically addresses the facets of dealing with an armed assailant, and includes official Krav Maga techniques for coping quickly and efficiently with lethal confrontations. The book especially focuses on confronting an assailant armed with a sharp-edged weapon, a blunt object, or a firearm. Other, related subjects covered include: using everyday objects as defensive weapons, neutralizing a handgun or a hand grenade directed at a third party in a hostage situation, and modern and sophisticated training methods used in Krav Maga (including mental training). As Mr. Shimon Peres, one of Israel's foremost statesmen, wrote in his foreword to the book: "...Terrorism does not respect borders!"

Author Matthew Hui: "I do not want to talk garbage in my book. I have been searching for effective combat martial art methods for more than 30 years. I have realized that most popular martial art styles are not realistic combat martial art. They are heavily influenced by artistic demonstration skills, sport elements such as competition rules and scoring methods, religions, and cultures. I came out with an idea to write an unarmed combat book to teach educated people how to defend themself against strongers by simple and direct methods. I have summarized my life long real experience from east to west in this book. This book teach you how and why these skills work so that you can learn quickly. It is for ordinary people without martial art background. In other words, you do not have kick high. It is the first complete scientific system ever developed by mankinds as it is completely backuped by scientific theories and truely effective. To be a perfact martial artist, you must know kick-boxing, wrestling,arm-lock and control. This book tells you how to use all of them. In china, it is well-known that Kung Fu has 5 elements Ti (kick), da (boxing), chin (arm- or joint-lock), shuai (wrestling), Na (control). This is what this book is about). I worte this book mainly for educated people such as university students and also for soldiers, police office and martial art instructors who want to learn how to teach effectively."
