Predator Training - Greg Jones: This follow-up to the best-selling Sudden Violence takes you deeper into the aggressive
psychology and ruthless techniques of kung fu san soo. Master Jones helps you develop the "beast" within you and reveals how
it can be harnessed into a ferocious fighting force that no attacker can withstand.
This book reveals closely guarded secrets of what many consider the most realistic form of unarmed combat of all: San Shou
kung fu. Almost never seen in the West, San Shou combines kickboxing, grappling and wrestling and is practiced by elite Chinese
military and police units.
Most books on Taijiquan (Tai Chi Chuan) concentrate of the health and therapeutic aspects of the art, others
deal with Puhing Hands or Weapons forms. This book only deals with Taijiquan as a martial art. Tui Shou - San Shou has been
written to bridge the gap between training exercises and practical application so that Taijiquan can be used as an effective
fighting system in the arena as well as in the street. The book includes the theory and practise of Tui Shou(pushing hands),
practical fight training, core self-defence applications and the fundamentals of Taijiquan fighting theory and practise. The
book takes the groundbreaking approach demonstrating the art from the learner's perspective complete with imperfect technique
and outlining the errors that are commonly made. This is a fully illustrated practical guide describing a practical Taijiquan
fighting method and how to achieve it in a structured and straightforward way. This is the only book at present that covers
the fundamental two person training methods and how to use them to develop the Taijiquan combat skills of sensitivity, evasion
and focussed power so that softness can overcome hardness and stillness can defeat motion.
San Shou Kuai Jiao (Fast Wrestling For Fighting) is the Chinese martial art of throws and takedowns,
and has been part of Chinese history for centuries, with police forces now trained in its techniques. This book presents 75
throws and takedowns and demonstrates basic training methods.
