Secrets recaptures that ancient art of the Samurai and adapts its self-defense techniques for modern martial artists of all disciplines. Fully illustrated step-by-step lessons demonstrate and explain techniques to use against punches, grabs, weapon attacks, and multiple attackers.

Complete Book of Jujutsu, by Bruce Tegner
Excellent for beginners
Reviewer: A reader from California, USA, October 12, 1998 - I just bought this book and have had an opportunity to put it through its paces. I've found the text to be very readable and instructive. Unlike many martial arts "Manuals" this one doesn't try to shroud the techniques in mystery, or pretend that you can become a black belt just by reading the book. Instead, it presents the material in an easy to read format that accurately describes the action in the photographs. A word of caution though, it reads a bit like a text book and the smallish black and white photos sometimes make it hard to see exactly what's going on. Overall, it is an excellent introduction to the art of ju jitsu for those who would like to either explore the martial arts, or experienced stylists who wish to expand their knowledge.
