Book Description

It’s a dangerous world out there, and knowing how to protect yourself against would-be assailants is a skill that should be in every girl’s bag of tricks. Get your kicks with a book that teaches self-defense-and self-esteem.

As movies like Kill Bill, Tomb Raider, and Charlie’s Angels have demonstrated, the martial arts aren’t just for boys anymore. Kung Fu for Girls is a funky, handbag-sized book of self-defense techniques that will get you out of any tight spot.

With step-by-step instructions and dynamic illustrations, martial arts trainer Simon Harrison shows how every part of your body-hands, hips, knees, elbows, even your butt!-can be used to fend off potential attackers. From palm strikes to slap blocks to stiletto stomps, it’s full of useful techniques for college students, city dwellers, and butt-kicking “girls” of all ages.

SIMON HARRISON is a martial arts coach and trainer. He is currently a second-degree black belt in Shaolin Ngor Chor Kung Fu. He has worked extensively as a graphic artist, illustrating for magazines such as 2000AD, Games Workshop, and the NME
