New Book: Devastating Kung Fu Destructions

We've just released a new book by Sifu Noah Knapp: Devastating Kung Fu Destructions.

 If your assailant uses his body as a weapon to harm you, your best defense is to take that weapon away from him by destroying it one limb, joint or vital organ at a time.

 Devastating Kung Fu Destructions is your guide to doing exactly that. Sifu Noah Knapp details dozens of ways to disrupt the function and structural integrity of the human body as a means to escaping a deadly assault. Rather than relying on pain to stop an attacker, the kung fu destructions found in this book focus on disabling your assailant so he literally can’t continue assaulting you.
